Cheers!Had also look at that companies fairings and saw some really nice ones. When you say brittle is the oem not sturdier/ thicker then the after market? My fairings are still very well in tact and if I had another set would not hesitate to paint it.
What I ment with "brittle" was/is that the OEM fairings on my bike the plastic has become brittle, probably because of UV light and well just because the plastic is old. Kinda like "dried out". And once an old fairing get a crack in it, no matter how many times you plastic weld or use super glue to fix it, it will keep cracking, probably not in the same spot, but close to it. Think this probably has allot to do with the environment the fairing has been exposed to, like leaving the bike to stand out side in cold/wet weather then baked in warm sunlight, etc..
My bike is an import from the UK, probably been outside in cold and rain, then in sunlight. And once it moved up North to Sweden it again was probably not kept in a garage with steady temperature. That is my theory of why the fairings crack so easy on my bike, though I have no scientific data to back up this claim of why... Also I guess the previous owners might have handled the fairings with no care when taking them off and putting them back on...
The OEM fairings are definitely thicker than the aftermarket ones.
