I just recently put the t-Rex frame sliders on my 2011 848 evo. On Sunday installed them, and last night on the way to work 4 deer ran out in front of me and I went down. So I'm looking for new fairings, I looked up the oems and for everything they want 2,750. Does anyone have sugg where to get less expensive and reliable? I looked on eBay and I can get some from china for 6-700$, but my roommate said not to get from china. Looking for advise.

Check out Sharkskinz..they have a street trim which will keep the headlights and tail light, they are costly but a lot less than OEM..probably around $1000 for a whole set, but they will need to be painted also. Much better quality than the Chinese ABS plastic fairings though

Heh, that's my plan too if something like that ever happens: buy sharkskinz and paint 'em to match. Hopefully insurance will help with that.

Option 2:

Carbon Fiber with Fiberglass reinforcement. Lighter and stronger than fiberglass, fits great and looks great. A little more than Sharkskinz with member discount, but worth it, and about half the price as OEM. Race fairings shown, but I have a street version available too.

I've experienced one of the Chinese kits and it fit perfect. The paint was not perfect as it had a couple of flaws but the kit cost me $485 painted and shipped. Been on the bike for almost 3yrs now.
