Carbon Fiber Front Fairing

Looking for a good carbon fiber front fairing for around the front wheel. What companies make a good product? Is it common for the fairings to crack break around the front bolts?

I chose the plain carbon option and they are very good in quality.
The only downside was the rear hugger that on it's right side it covers the whole half of the swingarm. I used a dremel cutter to make it look like it's left side (the one in the picture). It was quite easy mod to do.

I am very happy for my choice on the looks of it. Excellent quality and durability.

The only thing that tilted me towards M.R. was the RC211V front fender design with thse little air ducts.....They do need a cromed grill though, just to match the RC's OEM rads and that's on my FTTD stuff!
