--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The current options for '08 owners are: Attack, Sharkskinz and Hot Bodies.
I ordered Attack (early Feb) because of past experience on "fit & finish",
and because the Attack offers a "superbike tail" using a foam pad ..
rather than the stock seat base.
Got the kit in last week and fit it to the bike. (see pic)
My painter, Dan Rose with (www.mrspoiler.com) had me wet sanding the primer this morning.......:eek:
I'm thinking... "Dan..It's a "friggin" race bike!" ....
But he insisted...(I'm greatful with the end result)..:clap:
His system: 2 coats epoxy sealer..wet sand.. 2 coats flexible primer...3 coats black...wet sand..2 coats black...5 coats clear...!
So you can imagine what the finished product looks like.....Friggin' glass-like finish...!
He matched the tank (only piece not painted)....metalic diablo black .."to the tee"...just by adding two shades of pearl powder to the black.:zx_blk:
I'll post finished pics once the bike has ALL race graphics applied...two weeks.
(Minimal graphics for first race next weekend...numbers and Kawi logos)

I've had the bike since Feb. 2nd.... only 7 miles on OD (on the dyno) awaiting this friggin' body kit to get it on the track...first race next weekend...:rockwoot:

Mods to date:
M4 Full System
Ohlins 25mm Fork Kit
Ohlins TTX36 Rear shock
Vortex Clip-ons, Rearsets, Sprockets, Fuel Cap
Galfer Lines
Vesrah SRJL Pads
Woodcraft Engine Covers

Our team has been on Suzuki's since its inception... 2003.
Suzuki sponsors VESRAH Suzuki in our series (WERA)... and that's it.
Our team sponsor, MAXXIS,...spent nearly $500,000.00 promoting
their PREZA SPORT street tire in 2007.(which we RACE ON)
Current ads listed in RRW, Motorcyclist, Cycle World, ect.
We use the WERA Endurance events to help MAXXIS develop the PREZA tire.
Our race tires go back to the factory for evaluation....
In an effort to advance the team, I bought the 10R myself to develop, in hopes for support from Kawi in 2009....

That looks better than stock! More fairing covering the motor. I like that!:beer:

Race plastics make the 08 look so damn sexy.

What kind of gains you see out of the M4? I have been leaning that way myself.
Hope to have it on the dyno this week....will advise.

Well as the biggest 08 hater on this forum, all of a sudden this looks pretty good with the body kit. too bad it would be illegal to ride the streets without the uglyass headlights that it comes with stock.

I think seeing this bike with the primer, shows how the bike would look as one body colour instead of bits and pieces like it comes with stock.
I would ride this one

I wonder....legality wise...if you could get away with this style,
mounted inside...flush with the outer surface ...?
