If you’re looking for inexpensive bodywork, but want something that fits right straight out of the box and doesn’t take four hours to prep - look no further than Armour Bodies Pro Series bodywork. Armour Bodies has been noted for their high-quality fit and finish. This is achieved through the use of full sheets of fiberglass when rendering parts in a mold. In this way, the bodywork can be made stronger and lighter than kits for the same bike from other manufacturers. In other words, you can expect it to hold up better in a crash since these fairings aren’t piecemealed together in an effort to save on manufacturing costs! Fitment is another issue that comes up with cheap aftermarket motorcycle bodywork.
One of the main factors that prevents fiberglass bodywork from fitting correctly is that many manufacturers choose resins that shrink as they cure. The results are parts that don’t line up correctly and require several hours of prep time to fit on your bike. We’ve even seen homemade brackets employed to hold brand new bodywork in place! That’s not the case here. Armour Bodies Pro Series bodywork have displays a good fit straight out of the box thanks to the use of resins derived from use in kayaks. As an added bonus, these resins help the bodywork withstand chipping from rocks and other flying debris your bike will encounter out on the racetrack. And, the bodywork is also surprisingly flexible too. Best of all, when it comes time to paint, prep time is at a minimum since Armour Bodies Pro Series Bodywork is rough-finished at the factory where workers fill pin holes, smooth edges and add a primer to make sure the overall finish is ready to paint after a light scuff.
Available for 2006 and up Kawasaki ZX10R, kits start at $699.99 with a supersport tail and $749.99 with a superbike tail.

Armour Bodies makes it as easy as possible to install these on your motorcycle. Notice the notch in the cross-beam in front of the radiator. Lesser bodywork manufacturers make you figure these things out on your own …

All that’s required to install Armour Bodies bodywork is that you drill a few holes in the OEM locations. You can see the dimples on the front of this tail section and a pair of recesses on the upper part which make lining everything up that much easier.
