Cool Buying an Aero back hump?

Hey guys, I've been looking all over the internet and haven't found anything, so i though i'd ask here...

Does anyone know if you can buy an Aero/back Hump (or what ever you may want to call it) to be installed on a suit which originally didnt have one??? And if so, where?!? I recently bought myself a Gen2 (https://zx-10r.net/gallery/showimage.php?i=12466&c=5) with a few extra performance goodies and as I live in Germany where I can drive a bit faster, I am thinkin a bit more about aerodynamics.

No such thing as I've ever heard of. The hump has to be integrated into the construction of the suit. I guess you could split open a leather jacket and have one made but you would be better off just buying a jacket/pants that has a hump, I think.

Fang is right. Needs to be designed I to the suit. You could get a back protector. It would protect your back but wouldn't have the look

A nice advantage to the back hump also is it really smooths the airflow over your head and back, a lot less turbulence.

I don't have the most expensive one-piece by any means, it's an Alpinestars SP-1 but the quality and construction is better even than the custom race suit I had made back in 2000. The back hump ventilates and protects and helps smooth the airflow when you tuck in just a little.

That number came from the computer when it got dyno'd. That's also at the block, not the wheel. I've got some stuff done to the bike: Powercommander 3, sparkplugs, airfilter, exhaust and tons of other stuff (though majority are visual upgrades).

I would try contacting someone that does custom leather work on race suits. They'd have a better idea of what's involved or if it's possible.
