Is there any weight difference before and after?
Agreed. I like it except for that lower fairing sticky outy part.


Then again... That's just me.

Agreed with both of you guys. That lower fairing should've been designed differently. I spoke to Brasse about the lower fairing and how he should at least shorten it. I took it up to the twisties and tried to see if I can go hard and get my knee down with the new fairings. Impossible because the lower fairing extends too low and scrapes. When I take sharp corners or make u-turns going fast it'll scrape too. Someone could low-side. This is only when I'm pushing it hard. Riding normally I have no issues, but it's a 250R.... I like to push it.

A fairing scraping is not super likely to cause a lowside. Possible? Sure. But not super likely.

Fairings and their mounts both have some give.. They're not rigid footpegs.

True, but it's possible that someone that scrapes their fairing or footpeg panics and hit the brakes no? My point being though, the fairing is too low on this kit. If you have your bike lowered, you won't be able to use this kit at all.

Good point. Just saying though, the bellypans they sold for the Speed Triple from 2002-2010 all scraped during hard cornering... not sure of the 2011+ model (new frame that year). I had a 2011, but never had a bellypan on it, or any plastics for that matter that weren't absolutely necessary. I like my nekkid bikes to be fuckin nekkid bonks.

Never heard of one of those bellypans scraping causing a crash.

Fuck people who lower their bikes. There's a certain person on these boards [Dark] who is just as short as any other little bike riding munchkin out there, and he rides bikes the way they were meant to be.
