I don't think there are very many choose from. I've only seen kits online like those from nicecycle.com but their website pics are the same as ebay sourced from China.

I would be careful with Chinese Fairings. Previous owner of my bike bought a front cowl from China that I tried to install and it was not useable at all. Headlights did not line up with the screw locations and just threw the part away as "junk". It looked ok but impossible to install the lights. I don't want to pay $400+ for that OEM part but will not take a chance on a Chinese part after that experience.

Duck hunter carbon.
you asked for the best looking, fitment, perfomance and outright sex appeal, well
DHC
After you get it, have it professionally wrapped to match any RC you wish, or leave it carbon out
Duckhunter and pirks like this.

Nicecycle blows. Don't waste your money.
I tried that route with my VFR-800 to replace broken OEM pieces when I bought it.

None of the Nicecycle pieces fit at all, the left lower cowl came pre-broken for my convenience (because it was all poorly packed in the single box), and so on.

The ONLY Nicecycle part that fit was the smoke grey windscreen, which came with the kit and which I didn't need.

I eventually trashed the lot and bought OEM. And Honda is VERY proud of their plastic. But it all fit as it should and of course, was very good quality.

2002 SP2. I should have specified. Are there significant differences between farings throughout the years? I looked in the sticky's but didn't see farings available.

My intention is to inquire about options to contribute to the original posters question. Specifically to Subsailor's comment about purchasing OEM. My thought is he purchased when OEM was still available? I don't want to hijack this thread. thank you.
