RC8 race fairing

Postby -JP- » Thu Sep 23, 2010 3:31 pm

So, I'm building two racebikes, it now seems. A SuperDuke RR (which some tend to call "Bob") as well as an RC8 (which some doubtlessly will call "Vic"). Been looking around at race fairing for, eh, Vic. The only set of race fairing apart from the KTM Power Parts set - costing in the neighbourhood of Japan's GDP - is this one: http://www.superbikebodywork.co.uk/KTM.htm

Does anyone have any info/experience/rumors about said set?

Cheers.
Catch me if you can.

Been there, done that. Not much info, I'm afraid. So, considering this is a forum for other KTM's, perhaps someone, anyone..?

Go over to UKKTM.com and look up scrawnsenior's posts he installed that very body work on his RC8 and did a nice write up on it.

Hello I'm also on that other forum...

I always advice to go for the sebimoto fairing its good build quality and they where the first to make carbon strenghted bore holes to avoid cracks when fairing is frequently taken off.

You now can even have a perfect replica in same colours as Smrz & Nebel 2011 IDM bikes for a mere price.
You can also have them in colour in any RAL colour you prefer.

This is the link to the RC8 R fairings

This is for the IDM factory replica fairings...
