2007 Suzuki GSX-R1000 fitted with ExtremeFairings.com sportbike bodywork

ExtremeFairings.com Sportbike Bodywork

Some of you may remember the extraordinary Yoshimura race team replica replacement bodywork for my 2007 Suzuki GSX-R1000 that I got a couple years ago from ExtremeFairings.com.

For just $626 (free shipping!) and about three weeks, ExtremeFairings.com can supply you replacement bodywork for most models from the Big Four Japanese brands, and several Ducati models too. Consider that: an entire bodywork kit for about the cost of one OEM panel.

Now… I’m about to blow your mind – actually, sit down please. Included in the price above is CUSTOM PAINT. By that I mean you can send them any design – including any picture you download – and they will replicate that design faithfully. The only thing they cannot replicate is graffiti, but beyond that, anything goes. That is an astounding value!

The bodywork is created faithfully, heck, it even has the part numbers on the back side. Unlike other brands you might find on eBay (yes, there are cheaper ones out there) the ExtremeFairings.com product is made from high quality ABS, and the lugs and attachment points are part of the mold and not just glued on afterwards. So astonishingly, this is actually HIGH QUALITY bodywork; believe me, all bodywork kits are not the same.

The ExtremeFairings.com kit also comes with all the unseen (typically black plastic) bodywork parts, the side panels, the heat shield that goes next to the exhaust, and a tinted windscreen. It really is the whole package. The only thing I would recommend you purchase in addition is a pop-on fastener kit (about $40) and possibly a bolt kit from a reputable manufacturer like Pro-Bolt. A lot of the fasteners that come off the old bodywork and not necessarily reusable and don’t look good even if you do.

Fast forward to this year and my pal Rick–who coincidentally also has a 2007 Gixxer Thou, decided that it was time to revamp his way-beyond-tired motorcycle. This was a fugly looking bike that badly needs a paint job. ExtremeFairings.com was the only choice, and in short order a bodywork set custom painted in the Fixi Crescent Suzuki World Superbike team colors was ordered.

It took around 4 weeks for the bodywork to arrive; if that seems like a long wait, the end result is truly well worth it.

Once again, the finished product is exemplary. The pearl white metallic paint is flawless, and the various immaculately reproduced sponsor decals are all under the clear-coat, giving the finish decent longevity. My Yoshimura replica bodywork is starting to get somewhat stone-chipped after two hard years, although in most places it is still in perfect condition. I recommend using some kind of plastic protective film over the most vulnerable areas and you’ll get even longer life out of this stuff.

So when you need replacement bodywork for your bike we highly recommend ExtremeFairings.com; their product is so remarkable I simply cannot understand how they can do it for the price. But I’m very glad they can.

The following pictures show the Fixi Crescent bodywork being fitted:

If you don’t think the finished article is a spectacular way to spend six hundred bucks then you should probably consider another hobby.
