Thinking about changing my fairings any ideas?

I bought my 51 with a movistar fairing kit. I like the kit and I also have full leathers to match it. But I am thinking of a change. I laid the bike over doing about 3-4mph the first week I had it because the tire on the rear was shot and it got away from me when I wasn't used to it. But neways I could go back with the original on the bike like I got it....or maybe switch to something else. I love the repsol, or the castrol green and white. But I dunno....anyone know of any cool kits? Or maybe just go back with some stock colors....I am really not a fan of yellow and red as a main color. But nething else I am down for. Show me what ya think. And throw up some pics....this is what I am working with now.

here is my work in progress. I like it. The matte colors look good but its not perfect. China messed up some spelling. Fitment is good though.

Stick with the stock layout, or do a euro version with the SP2 Castrol green and white. I think that was the best paint scheme. Neither of the two above look right because the RC was never raced with those paint schemes.

There are a ton of good paint jobs out there. I really like the erion (both the red/white/black and the black with grey wings) and the elf world endurance.




I'm always right.

I say stay with the factory style. It will keep the value of the bike and people know when your pulling what's up. That's my two penny's lol
