Ducati 848 – Race Fairings – Walk Around

March 10, 2009

I previously posted up about the fairings I bought from Racers Edge.  They are a fibreglass race fairing.  Three main characteristics of race fairings are:

  • They’re made of fibreglass, not ABS plastic, so they won’t shatter if or when you come off.  Fibreglass is also easier to repair than ABS plastic.
  • They have a sealed bellypan.  Most racing regulations state that your bellypan must be capable of holding fluid – you don’t want oil leaks spilling out on to your rear tyre, or on to the track!
  • They have larger air ducts, which allow you to fit the higher flow race air tubes for additional performance.

Oh, they’re lighter, as well!  And, they can be made to look pretty good, if you get a decent paint job, and apply a few stickers.  Here’s a video I took, showing my Ducati in track form.
