Fairings for the SV?

Hey guys... so, I hit the twisties with my buddies last night. To make along story short, I hit some gravel and flew off the road doing about 95-100. My bike suffered a lot! Lol.. I drove it off, but a crash at almost 100 defiantely takes it toll. Now i'm looking for all new fairings along with a new gast tank, forks, etc. Does anyone know of any good, fiberglass fairings online? I'm looking for a full fairing set... the ones i had on before were pretty good but i want to try something new... any ideas?

search for sharkskinz, they make a full one that is the whole upper and lower front fairing instead of two sections or do a gsxr mount to it.

Yeah, that airtech one looks awesome, but the fairing plus bracket are almost $1k!! It does look nice though..

How would i go about doing a GSXR mount for it? I saw that DLIT did that on his SV... what would i have to do? How hard is it?

DLIT has only ever owned R6's. I think you're talking about 99birdv6, his SV is for sale right now and he mounted a set of plastics on his. Do a search on svrider.com's forum, that's pretty much the best place for the info you want/need about sv's.

Ahh... you're right, my bad. That SV with the GSXR plastics looks great. Does the headlight mount up to the Sv too?

yeah you pretty much have to rig the mounts yourself. I think some people have even used zipties to mount them on.

yes you have to use the gsxr headlight if you do the full conversion. The people at svrider can help you.

If i were to get 2nd gen fairings and the corresponding mounting brackets, would i be able to just mount it up to my 1st gen SV? I'd use 2nd gen headlights of course

is there a naked kit out there to convert the SVS to the naked, single-headlight version? Good to know... just in case...

Yeah, it's not pretty! The thing cartwheeled right after it flew off the road and skidded on it's side a decent distance. I flew off over the handlebars and landed head-first in the cement/gravel. Thank god i was wearing my helmet and leathers... I walked away with some minor scratches and a broken toe. Haha... could have been a lot worse.

I was expecting to see my front forks in a knot or something, but amazingly, there doesn't seem to be ANY mechanical damage to the bike! Forks are as straight as ever, engine runs fine, etc. All my mirrors and turn signals are gone, the fairing looks like it went through a meat grinder, and my gas tank is flat on the left side. BUT... all that stuff is relatively inexpensive to fix..

Pics are coming up! I need to get my hands on a digital camera...

Ok.. here are some pics... they were taken at midnight so some are kinda hard to amke out... but the basic summary of the damage is a dented tank and lots of torn fiberglass.. what's worse is that this all happened about 2 weeks after my Iron Butt association ride. Sounds easy? read about it here: http://www.tamumc.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1555 . I think someone must have it out for me or something...
