In my opinion..... The ABS is very prone to cracking under certain stresses, especially closer to bolt holes and other attachments.
The fiber glass front race nose cowl I had for my ZX7 was heavy duty.... thick, well made and when I crashed with it did not crack and had barely any rash scaring to show.... where as the abs stuff was a mess.
I just picked up a race glass kit off my friend Nobody's buddy in Vancouver..... It is very thin... distorts very easily but I would think it is lighter then OEM for sure. Most likely stronger then the OEM stuff as well.
But.... I have not crashed with it it.... yet.... so can not say for sure..... LOL
" It is not a matter of IF you will crash..... It is only a matter of when....."
I have 5 crashes under my belt now.... learned something from every one. Also walked away from every one of them..... one with a bit of help mind you.
This is the reward of ALWAYS wearing your gear, you just never know.
