your thoughts about puig spoiler

What are your thoughts about it????

I find it cosmetic unless a racer or a test says otherwise..

I like them.. granted these are probably to flimsy to actually give you any aero benefits but we all have seen how crucial they have become in racing series so its definitely the future. You're going to see them on all homologation bikes pretty soon with how dominate Ducati has been in wsbk.

looks like they work, it's tempting at the price, but maybe a better suspension set up would do the same.

I think they're like a rear wing on a street car that never sees the track. Mainly for looks and causes lots of drag at low speeds. Can it do something? Yeah sure, as long as you are going really fast.

They are definitely used to keep front end down but if you are racing I am fairly certain they are not legal. At least at club level Superstock rules. Not sure if they are legal in Superbike either... Probably a decent upgrade for a drag racer though...

If anything else, it at least makes the bike look faster!

Probably little to zero benefit on a street bike unless you count poser points at Starbucks.

I left the factory winglets off my S1k race fairing.

You'll gain more speed from seat time than those things.

Haha, I'm making up for it by going for Sat/Sun this coming weekend! My goal is to be 1:04's for 10 laps straight.... Cause I know I drop 1-2 sec in a race from past history.

Why do you need this if you have traction control to keep the front wheel down?
