Track bike back on road : chinese fairings?

Post by tom4 » Thu May 03, 2018 1:37 pm

Hello

My trackday NC30 has not seen a track since august 2016.
It has never been registered in France because it's just nearly impossible for a japanese grey import
BUT
in 2019, the NC30 will be 30, so I could register it as a "collectible" bike.

that would mean finding
- lights (front and rear)
- mirror
- Fairings

The trouble are the fairings. the fuel tank is black, so I guess that leaves me no choice than fitting some chinese fairings.
Are these good enough for a road use (around 5k miles/year) ?
any brand / website to prefer ?
on the other hand, maybe just a tyga upper "endurance" fairing could do the job, but does it fits well on the standards headlight


to have the "collectible" registration, the bike needs to look as close as possible as the standard NC30

thanks

Chinese finish appears first class but fitting can be a challenge, no holes and some parts may be lacking in mount tabs, particularly tail light/set area. Tyga probably fits with less work but more expensive.

you could get a beat up set of panels and just spray them all black?

the chinese ones seem to be mostly from one maker but there are known to be at least a few that vary wildly in quality from totally need to be re-drilled / mounted and have big gaps in them to passable at a glance.

none of them are what id call decent alternatives if you have the option of getting genuine panels.
