I think it's really beautiful. Do please tell us what effect it has on range when you've had the chance to ride it. That's quite a project.
I'm expecting it to have a slight positive effect on the range. The frontal surface has increased a bit but the whole also got a lot slipperier.
This looks great! I wish my dustbin looked even remotely as good or well-fitted as that.
Well it did take almost 4 months to adapt, fit and paint everything. Can't wait to ride again!
Very nice work ! I would certainly have chosen the fairing option in case Zero proposed it
I expect you will enjoy it from all points of view: wind protection, noise, range,...
By the way, how did you solve the problem with the brake handle being too close to the fairing?
Shaved a 2cm gap in the right side where the brake handle falls into it. If you don't know it it's barely noticeable.
Looks fantastic! This is close to looking OEM.
Please share your experiences with the fairing (for example comfort, wind/noise, energy consumption, ergonomics, behaviour in different weather/street conditions etc). What was your total cost (including external work hours) for the prowjct?
If there was a way to buy a fairing like this for a reasonable price I'd be highly interested.
I'm picking it up on Wednesday. I expect a little buffering in the helmet in the upright position but nothing that a spoiler or a vent in the low part of the screen can't fix.
The price breakdown is about this:
- Fairing: €100(got a nice deal)
- Front fender and headlight: €55
- Fitting and painting: €850
Now this was a bit of a project but my panel beater says he could fit an R6/R1 faring much easier. So if you don't mind a bit smaller that should be more easy, especially because there is a big aftermarket in (race)fairings for those bikes.
I agree. A really impressive project that looks factory-designed. If only Zero would do the same.
