666 Carbon in Italy. I'll let you guys know how they respond to my issues. They quote 24 hour from order to ship. It took 7 weeks. Supposedly they were trying to improve their layup process to provide a better quality product. Which I'm still not happy with. I'd hate to have seen their poor quality stuff.

I'm pretty sure it looks like they should be about 0.125" thick,... I'll see if I can find them somewhere to order them. Unless you have some laying around...

I am, but for as much as I paid for these, and as long as I've waited I expected top notch quality.

So, I'm test fitting all the panels. The rear went together amazingly.



The nose fairing mounts perfectly,... but I have a significant gap between the ram air holes, and the ram air ducts. Anyone have a solution for this? Do the ram air ducts have to be trimmed? It's the motoholders race fairing stay with ram air ducts. Take a look at these photos and you'll see the gaps.







The belly pan was fairly easy. I've read horror stories on here about how much of a pain in the ass it can be to install the belly pan, but honestly, after I cut the lower radiator tab off, it was easy. I 3d printed my own mount that mounts to the front exhaust attachment point to hold the belly pan on. Everything worked out really well. Looking forward to getting the exhaust all mounted up and giving life to this beast!!

Thanks from youngR

Well, I've gotta say,.. these fairings are a little subpar in the finish department,... but they fit beautifully. All pre-drilled holes were spot on.

I had a chance to take it out of the shop and get some sunlight on the carbon. Beautiful. Almost thinking of not painting it. Let me know what you guys think:

I do still have quite the "to-do" list before calling this a successful build:

- Tighten Fwd Header
- Place heat shield on oil cooler
- Install Temp Sensor
- Safety wire oil drain plug
- Finish mounting exhaust cans (Rear support not lining up to mounting holes)
- Buy & Install 1199 ECU (turns out the 899 ECU won't even start the 1199 engine)
- Install Termi Up-Map
- Install RapidBike Race
- Drill & rivet zeus fasteners to nose fairing
- Figure out issue with significant gap where ram air ducts meet nose fairing
- Design and 3D print low profile brake and clutch reservoir brackets
- Buy M18-1.5 tap & tap threads into right bar end for fullsix carbon brake guard
- Check fuel sensor wiring (getting fuel sensor caution)
- Install rotor spacers
- Install & bleed from calipers
- Bleed rear caliper
- Burp coolant
- Safety wire radiator cap


If ANYONE can help with the gap between the ram air ducts and the nose fairing I would really appreciate it. If anyone has had this problem before? I would like to not just duct tape the gap, I would like to find a good solution.

I donít know about the nose fairing spacing but was curious if installing the Termi up-map is redundant since youíre putting on a rapid bike unit?
