Track plastic??

Hey guys,I normally ride mts. and act like a hooligan.
(being honest)...
I raced back in 90's,retired (broke) and did track days on/off.

I just got hired today! at Coke. Once in a lifetime opportunity for me.
I'm a truck driver and riding this way on the street isn't worth my new job.
Just wondering what you guys are running on your gixxers for track days?
Sharkskinz,and air-tech are the last plastics I can remember purchasing.
fzr-400,honda f3,98 gsxr 600,rs 250.
Thanks for any reviews,Good,or Bad

Congrats on the new job, don't screw the pooch.

I did a review not long ago on Optimal Fairings.
End result with paint

Sharkskinz and Armour Bodies are two others, Optimal about 400.00 for everything.

Sharkskinz or Armour Bodies are probably the best quality. I have the latter.

sharkskinz and armour bodies is the best I hear. I hear the hot bodies set does not have as much flex as the sharkskinz or armour bodies so when you go down on hot bodies they end up with more damage...atleast thats what I hear!

sometimes you can get a killer deal on craigslist or the WERA forums on a used set

I used both of these absolutely zero complaints. Armour Bodies fitments are exact.

I agree with just about everything the guys have said...Optimal is your best bang for the buck. Hotbodies have gotten better, but they're not great; best thing about them is the holiday offer they do. AB and Shark are both awesome; if I had the money I would buy Sharkskinz.



YoyoDyne/Sebimoto are also cool options that are quality if you're looking for something different.
