This is the closest thing I've seen to a nice looking, functional fairing for occassionally bolting on the S3.

Has anyone seen one that looks better??

With the Speed3 in mind, a good pair, like breast, should be topless. :hammer:

I'm selling that on ebay right now as I no longer have the headlights to make it look right. Selling it at a steal price compared to new.

kuhlka,
Why are you selling the fairing? How's the quality control...it better be pretty good for the $500 or so asking price. How's the wind protection...better or worse than naked?
Thanks

Wind protection is much better than naked. Before I put the fairing on, the bike would only do 140ish, after the fairing I managed just over 150 'indicated' in a full tuck. Nowadays, after removing the SAI, custom map, etc. the bike will do 140+ ACTUAL in a full tuck with no fairing. I'll be getting a Puig Alien Streetfighter screen hopefully in the next month to finish off my front end swap. Thats why I'm selling the Roadracing screen and already sold my headlights.

Wind noise is noisier with the Roadracing screen, but this is because it deflects the wind up to your face shield and top of the helmet when you're sitting upright. A slight tuck gets you under the wind. I can't remember, but I don't think you can use clip-ons with the Roadracing screen as the bars would hit the sides of it.

The overall build quality is good, the shaping of the aluminum pieces of the fairing is obviously stamped out using a die as I don't know of anyone who can make such perfect compound creases in aluminum by hand. The only piece I thought could be nicer would be the support bracket. It doesn't come with an integrated mount for the guages (mount is separate and mounts to the underside of the top triple clamp). The welds weren't as beautiful as I'd like, but overall the thing is solid and suits the look of the bike. It is a complete replacement for the stock headlight/cluster bracket.

Better photos of the t509 and t955i fairings;





Looks like they might have stuff available for the 1050 soon enough as they've got photos of a 1050 with parts on it. But, it'll probably be just as hard to get as the current bits.

I have an MCJ wind screen that I put on for the fall and it does help and looks good too! The only problem is getting one fron Italy. You can see it in the memebers photos in the last page of the B section, silver speed 3.
