    Carbon Fiber!!

    Hey guys, anyone out there looking to slap on some Carbon fiber fairings for their bike? I'm planning on buying a few 2x2 pieces from Twill Tech. Voo has them on his nanner, and seems to be pleased with them.

    The company has loads of pieces for just about every bike, and they're not that expensive as is, but I figured I'd see if anyone else wanted to go in with me.

    They have an Ebay store where you can browse most of their stuff. Lemme know if anyone is interested, and we can order them all at once!

    I am very happy with twill tech. I've heard mixed reviews about them but I had a great transaction. I'll warn you now... It's not a quick delivery but I had them make all mine fresh because I had to have matching 2x2 twill for all the parts I bought.

    Taken from their site:

    "If for any reason you are unhappy with what you receive within 48 hours of reception you can return the item if you pay for just the shipping back to us and a 10% restocking fee. If the product was damaged during transit, we will file for insurance for you.

    There is a 20% re-stocking fee if you want to cancel your pre-sale. There is no surcharge - no added cost minus the difference you need to pay - if you want to upgrade your pre-sale order to ship immediately (if applicable)."

    So to return a product there is a 10% restocking fee, but if you cancel your oder they will charge you 20% to "restock" a product that does not exist because they have not made it yet?

    At any rate, what kind of time frame were you thinking about making your order... days, weeks, months?

    Well give me a time frame you all want to order them. I'm in no particular rush, and I can wait if I know we can get a nice group discount. I've seen them on voos and I love it. So I plan on buying 4 pieces.

    I also plan on putting my oem R1 decal on mine as well.. found it for $10 thanks to Manx.

    Zx10 fender, perhaps THAT in carbon too.

    unliike the ZX14 fender, the 10 will allow you to bump the tire right up to the back of a truck bed or against the trailer (without paint hitting before tire). you'll have to makwe the mounting brackets for the fender as well or find some on the 'net.

    Yea, I have been following the zx14.com forum you moderate and see the details. I was not convinced this was something I wanted to do but I really need to lighten the bike up in some areas and the front fender is definitely one area i could shed some pounds. I just got my Sargent modular seat with matching passenger seat last night and had my first ride in with it. It's a huge upgrade from stock just simply because of the shape and how it holds you on the bike instead of sliding you forward. I put stomp grips on it too.. doh you got me thread jacking!

    I have some blue carbon fiber on the bike im putting together, do they carry that if so I'm in for some.
    It's only fast enough, when it can't go any faster.
