Hustle Hard Race Fairings- Anyone have them?

Hey guys---

Saw this on the Wera forum & since I am in the market I figured I would post here and see what you guys thought.

https://hustlehardracing.com/product...-with-seatpad/

Looks like a good deal for good quality--- but do they fit? Anyone have experience?

I've never seen anyone run them on the zx6r but I've seen some people that had them on Ducatis and they had no complaints about them to my knowledge. Seem to be a pretty good "middle of the ground" set of fairings. Also the guys at HHR are pretty helpful and good to deal with. I've bought a few things from them before.

Meh for that much I would rather just buy an Armour Bodies kit and know exactly what quality I'm getting.

Heard of CRC fairings but as was mentioned, for that price I would get you Armour Bodies.

CRC *may* be a great product. I *know* AB is a great product. Why take the chance?

What's the point of having those race fairings?

So that you don't have to worry about it if you drop the bike?

If that's the case, eBay's Chinese fairings would do the job. They're injection molded so the fitment is quite decent.

The point of fairings isnt just to crash its also about how well the fairings hold up in the crash so you can get back out on track. Hints why break, clutch, shifter and rear break levers are offered in folding. Hints why case covers exist. Hints why lever guards exist. And in this game reputation and racer reviews of the products matter as this is not the poor mans hobby. I dont know about you but im not gonna drop 800 on fairings no one knows about when I could drop 800 on fairings that literally everyone knows about and is well reviewed by track day enthusiast (me) and racers at all levels. In a race season it could literally be the difference in a couple of points if you choose some piece of shit product that doesnt hold up as well as the next and cant get back out to finish to gather those precious points etc etc which could easily cost you the season. Just food for thought and my 2 cents which is worth less than 1.

I bought a Chinese fairing for my Ninja 300 before and I couldn't tell the difference between OEM and Chinese one in terms of quality. The eBay fairings had very minor paint imperfections, which didn't matter to me.

Are you seriously expect the fairings to protect your bike in case of crash?

Maybe you should look for one of these, it will save your bike way more than aftermarket fairings.

^Have you ever been to a race track?

My guess is no. When you get a chance, go, and you'll see why EVERYONE has aftermarket fiberglass race fairings, not Chinese ones that look just like the OEM's or heavy bars that stick out of the bike which will only make the bike roll over a few times before it comes to a stop.

It has nothing to do with the fairings protecting your bike. It has to do with how many crashes they can withstand, how much oil can the bellypan hold in case of an engine blowout (fyi, the magic number to that question for OEM fairings is exactly 0), how quick/easy it is to take them off and put them on, etc.

This for days upon days. Most of that Chinese shit wouldn't past race standards anyway. But hey sounds like you're a believer. Track your shit on those fairings and when you lay it down report back to us. I'll be eagerly awaiting.

And I trust my armour body kit to hold up after a crash way more than that Chinese shit.... Because it has. Literally posted a thread of me fixing them after a low side.

Speaking of Armor Bodies...been having some negative experiences with the set of bodywork I ordered from MotoXP Ricambi (Italy) for the R3. Long story short, it's been almost 8 weeks, and I still don't have it, and they've been constantly lying and BS-ing about when they'll ship. I wanted to go with Armor Bodies but the only reason I didn't is they don't make a superbike tail for the R3 and I really didn't want to use the stock seat, because I want to reduce as much weight as I can as well as raise the seat height.

Anyway, fast forward to yesterday, I decided to send an email to Woodcraft using the "contact us" feature on their website, asking them if they plan on making a superbike tail for the R3 anytime in the future. First thing in the morning, at like 7:00 am, I get a reply back from Eric Wood himself with a thorough answer to my question (not just a "yes" or "no").

I shouldn't rave about them since I'm sponsored by a competitor, but damn! There's a reason so many people choose Woodcraft. Can't deny their excellent customer service. Anyway, Eric said the superbike tail is in the plans and he expects to be able to offer that mid-late summer. So when I crash the shit out of my R3 and it needs new bodywork, I won't be bothering to replace it with shit that takes 2 months to arrive from Italy. I'll be going the Armor Bodies route!

Love woodcraft, same with msm and stg. Simply fantastic people. Have had 4 buying experiences with woodcraft all fantastic. The rearsets I ran into a time issue with delivery time and the track weekend and sent a question. Literally marked shipped the next day at like 8 am. Ordered them 8 hours prior. They do shit right

I tried Chinese eBay fairings and they exploded off the bike and caused me to crash
