@Sweatypants So 2 1/2 years later, how did those Motoforza fairings work out?
well... haven't ridden the damn thing yet as apparent in my CR500 thread update, BUT...
dealing with and shipping from Motoforza was painless and quick. they seem to fit up pretty nicely. i only need to trim off that top corner of the side fairing near the tank (to make it flow with the lines of the frame). the seat where it meets the tank was trimmed a little more to fit better and angled down in the front a little more for the final position compared to this picture. i think i'm gonna trim off those little side fins on the seat fairing too. seems like pretty nice stuff, i might order another set at some point.
Looks good. It appears they will be getting some money from me.
recently placed a order with Bbplastics
wtf.... how did you get anyone to respond to an email? i wanted that kit so bad
Messaged on Facebook!
I'm fitting the bodywork to an SV1000. The Motoforza stuff specifically lists the SV1000 but bbplastics does not. I'm still waiting to hear back from both of them. Those bb fairings look pretty sweet.
What subframe is that?
I talked to a guy that ran those and he said they were good but scrapped a lot when leaned over. He said he probably wouldnt buy them again.
I will let you know in about 2 weeks!
So far my experience has been the same as Sweaty's. Motoforza got right back to me. Still haven't heard from bbplastics and I did reluctantly log into FB for them.
I guess I got lucky lol
Was just on the BB website, is that the SV650 " M2 " kit that you have ? What does the kit include ? How easy was it to fit on the 2nd gen SV650 - have to fab much ? OEM SV 650 fairing stay ? OEM subframe ?
Yours looks pretty sharp.
It is the m2 kit.
Kit includes upper, lower, tail and fender. I opted for rear subframe, fairing stay, mounting kit. Screen and seat pad.
Biggest thing is that you have to locate battery and etc from rear to the front. Most everything else is straight forward.
What did it end up costing you, shipping and all, in US dollars ?
1200 Give or take
I wanna see how this project looks finished
me too... 17 months and counting.
i think the 2 year anniversary is gonna be that date perhaps. i've been considering looting the unversal parts off this thing for something else and immediately selling the Hall motor as soon as/if it ever comes back to me out of resentment and anger, and just starting another bike for after the Vdue one. i don't wanna be emotional and rash, but also i'm getting bitter.
Rotax 256 tandem motor in a RS125 chassis is a cute bike. i dunno, this subject makes me angry even typing about it.
