    we use CRC as they split the front in two parts only’ upper and lower, some other makes use the original fitting arrangements with multiple side parts, not as fast to remove, this may not be an issue outside competition usage.

    those shown from motoracerx have the same configuration and great price.

    This will be the first set of these fairings for the RSV4, but i have been using them for awhile for my other race bikes and have 2 sets for the '12 gsxr 600 and 07 gsxr 750 on their way.

    shipping is pretty quick coming from Peru to the states, 2-3 wks.

    Fitment was always good. Only trimming/modifications i ever had to do was for the exhaust on the lower, which is normal.

    I havent fitted the RSV4 ebay fairings yet. I have a bike currently under the knife and am concentrating on it for now.

    Ill do a write up with pics when i do mount them up.

    These are the same brand ebay fairings for one of the GSXR's that i bought for the RSV4 . I've been using these for years.
    I had no problems with fitment and havent made any modifications. The only cutting I'll have to do is for the Woodcraft frame sliders.
    I didn't even have to trim the exhaust cut out. That's almost always a guaranteed modification on any race bodywork.

    I pretty much just drilled the center of the 'dimples' that are for the mounting points. I had to move one dzus fastener back about an inch because the radiator was in the way. I've had to do that on all my GSXR's over the years.

    It'll be a week or so before i get them on the RSV4, so if anybody wanted to go ahead and get some of these on order, i'd say do it. I expect the fitment on the RSV4 to be just as good. They come from Lima, Peru and took 11 days to get to Ohio.

    Also, the finish is a matte white primer that looks really good. I could put my number plates on it and 'sticker' it up and be happy with the look. But like I said, i'm a minimalist when it comes to race bodywork. I put more money into brakes, suspension and tires than paint.

    Took about 2 hrs. The bolts being used aren't finish product. I'll source some matching hardware. I have enough metric nuts and bolts to build 10 bikes.

    Here's the ebay link for the RSV4. https://www.ebay.com/itm/APRILIA-RSV...UAAOSwl9BWJkY9

    And sooooo damn expensive for something that is going to end up in the dumpster. Carboni's are nice for sure.

    i paid $1300 for 3 sets, and i still have non crashed bodywork currently on the bikes for spares.

    i bought new to make all 3 race bikes match. My own personal race team. 'Team Me'.

    im the guy in the pits with very clean, very well set up bikes, with clapped out bodywork.
    All go and no show!!

    Alright, I got around to putting these most awesome ebay fairings on.

    Pros:

    -Nicely packed and fast international shipping. Peru to Ohio, U.S. in less than 2 wks
    -white primer finish looks nice. No runs, no blemishes, no cracks. 'dimples' are nicely laid out spot on for drilling, except for the 2 rear mounting holes in the tail - i'll explain/show
    -easiest set of bodywork i've ever put on. Easier than the GSXR's I did this week.
    -No trimming or cutting anywhere.

    Cons:

    -The back 2 mounting holes/dimples were about 1/4-3/8" off. I made 2 extesions out of some aluminum. This is shown in the pictures.
    I could have drilled different holes instead of making the little brackets but i wanted all of the mounting bolts to be in the center of the dimples/mounting points. The brackets i made are prototypes but they seem to work just fine, so although not the prettiest, i may leave them as they are.

    -Right front midfairing dsuz faster hits the overflow bottle on the radiator. I'm going to put a 1/2" piece of hard dense foam on the bottle to act as a spacer between the overflow and the fairing/dsuz fastener.

    I've no idea how it crashes and don't really care cause i'm not into repairing bodywork. If gorilla tape and zipties can't fix it, it goes to the dumpster.

    That bodywork looks great for the price. I especially like the 1 piece upper.
    I’m guessing the manufacturers took the mould for the rear seat unit with the small steal bracket that is used for the road bodywork still fitted onto the subframe.
    i see you do not have that bracket fitted hence your diy solution.

    item 28

    So that would be 28 in the diagram? Nice. I can just order that sucker then.

    Previous owner must have eliminated that bracket for their race bodywork to fit. I definitely don't have that piece.

    And in that case, these fairings mounted up perfectly.

    Why even bother with the back 2 mounting holes? They're unnecessary if the tail piece fits around the frame. I've never bolted down the tail piece, other than the 4 bolts up by the tank, using 2 different bodywork manufacturers.

    Those look pretty good.
