Cool Wings: Show me your Wings !!!

For purely cosmetic reasons.... I bought some winglets and painted them the same off black as my 2016 ZX10R. Paint is from the company called "Tough Up" I think...
Someone made a thread on zx10 FB page and I saw a good deal of the UK guys who painted the winglets to match their custom painted bikes.
Performance wise... I see no difference at top end speeds.

Look wise, it's a take it or leave it..Im sort of neutral, but it makes my bike stand out when parked. It def get more looks now than before the winglets.

Lets see what you have gents....

pretty simple. You have to remove the side panels to hook up one bolt and the rest is outside.

Same here. I liked how they look and was wondering if they do actually have any performance benefits (i dont believe the Puig marketing hogwash)

I'm sure the wind tunnel testing Puig did on these was equivalent to the effort of what the Factory bikes in Pro Racing do

Theoretically they would generate downforce. And if so, then they should shorten braking distance by giving the front tyre more traction. But I would conjecture that the effect would be marginal and only really relevant when you need to stop from like 180 when there's plenty of drag to generate downforce.
