So I'm going to make this as quick as possible while trying to cover as much as I can. Please feel free to ask any questions and I'll do my best to answer them.
So here we go:
I grabbed a set of fairings from Summitfairings.com and have to say I was pretty happy with my experience with them.
Summit is located in China and they make aftermarket fairing kits for the big 4 along with Ducati and Triumph. They offer OEM and sponsored fairings i.e. movistar, corna, rizla along with offering free custom painting, which is what made me go with them.
They guarantee near OEM fitment and I have to say they pretty much lived up to that. I ran into an issue trying to use some of the OEM hardware but if you use the hardware they provide it seems like things may go together a lil easier. The only fitment issue I ran into was the front 2 holes on each side fairing needed to be oblonged a lil bit but again after the first pass of fitting everything I switched the hardware to what they provided and would not have had to do that if I had just used their hardware. So my suggestion, just used their hardware and save yourself the headache.
Other than that my big issue is the color not matching my OEM tank, now when I questioned that they stated that they tried to match the pic I sent them. So my suggestion make everything very clear to them, give them all of the lil details you want. I believe the more info you give them the happier you will end up in the long run. I asked told them to paint it like it was in the pic I provided and I guess they did just that but I should have added that the red is the OEM suzuki red cause my reds are a lil off now and I don't like that too much. Now after a week of going back and forth on the lil detail I was very happy to see that they keep you informed on every step of the process from sanding to paint to shipping.
when it arrived:
They even provide the plastic pieces under the fairings:
hardware, even extra hardware:
The molding marks are almost identical on all fairings:
