    Here we go, hopefully these will work!!

    Sadly, whilst it looks all nice and shiney, thats just the really nice wax i use!!
    It really needs a fairing kit, it looks like its been over at some point, albeit from a standstill, the cost of getting it resprayed would be equal to the cost of new fairings (chinese).
    I had the PCV set up on the dyno and it made 155 at the rear, which im quite happy with for now!
    Just a quickshifter to go on now, once i have sourced or made the wiring loom!!

    I had the 2004 model, dropped it and needed new fairings. I decided to go the Chinese cheapo fairing route as the whole set was almost the same as Honda wanted for the nose cone!
    Anyway, I ended up getting the 7 Star race replica fairings for about £300 shipped, and they were actually really rather decent. The fit was maybe not 100 perfect in places, but you would have to really know where to look to see it.
