Let me know how the Pro Bolt pieces work out for you. I love the look of the Monster and my 899 is currently VERY naked LOL! I understand what you are saying though in all honesty. I just wanted to change up the look but it is proving to be an expensive (possibly) endeavor. I may just throw the OE Red fairings back on and call it a day.


Thanks again!

Finally finished with the fairing install. Overall, I'm pleased with the result. This is a drop dead sexy bike in tricolore.
Still, I do have issues with the fairing and will post a few pics of the problem areas separately.

Fit and finish is spotty. The Panigale fairing design is the most complicated I've ever owned. So, it's not surprising ufairings had difficulty replicating everything. The front nose fairing fitment was the worst of all the pieces. It was warped out of the box and didnt improve once on the bike.

The color match isn't great. Maybe difficult to see in this pic, but the fairing paint it a lighter shade than the tank.

The plastic is brittle compared to OE plastic. This cross brace piece cracked when I tried to install it the first time. There are tabs that are supposed to slide into a cover that goes under the headlight fairing. Those broke straight away, so I just left that piece off.

No pic, but there was significant overspray on the back of the fairings. Most of this is not visible when the fairings are mounted, but you can catch a glimpse from some angles. Too much to ask to mask off the backsides?

Difficult to photograph, but there are multiple flaws in the paint. Looks like the paint room wasn't clean so little specs of dirt got embedded in the paint and just sprayed over. If this bothers you, don't let the bike sit parked long enough for people to notice.

This is weird. On both sides the "A" in Panigale is set too high and spaced farther from the "L" than it should be. Copyright thing?
