Hello everyone!



I was searching the forums and didn't see anything on this company iFairings.com and would like feedback from you regarding this company. I want to change the look of my 899 and did a Google search for new fairings. I came across these https://www.ifairings.com/motorcycle-fairings-bodywork-for-ducati-899-1199-tricolore-limited-edition/ and wanted to know if anyone else has used them before. If not can anyone recommend a brand that is bolt on? I'm not expecting OEM Ducati quality and even a few fitment issues in all honesty.



I am also looking at ProBolt USA for some hardware if anyone has any experience with them as well.


Thank you in advance for any help/advice! :)

Not sure about ifairings but I've ordered from pro bolt a few times. Very good selection and quality. Recommended

I ordered the exact same set from ifairings.com and received notification today that they've shipped. Will let you know how they look when they arrive in a week or 2.
I looked at several different options before ordering but couldn't find much information on the company's products or unbiased reviews. I went with ifairings mainly because someone called Mike followed up by email and was responsive and even questioned if I ordered the right set. I hadn't. I meant to order the traditional Italian flag colors but ordered the one with black stripes instead. He corrected that for me.

Thank you for the reply! I could not find anything in relation to product reviews with this company. The were one of only a few that came up in a Google search and the price for a full set is relatively inexpensive (Shipped from China too!). So I emailed them to find out what the shipping times would be to me in Massachusetts and I also received a reply from a Mike. This was his email to me...


Dear Jeffrey,

Thanks for reaching out to iFairings.com.

If you order the fairing kit today, you will receive it in three weeks.

Thanks again for contacting us and look forward to getting your business.

Kindest regards

I am looking forward to your review of the set you receive in terms of quality and if you had to seriously modify them to fit. Do you think you could post some pictures as well? If your set is good to go I will order the set I want. Thank you big time for taking the leap and helping me make my decision!!!!

My ifairings arrived in a very large box today, 14 days after I confirmed the order. In short, they are about what I expected for $500. Nice glossy finish, but some imperfections in the paint if you look for them. Obviously not painted in a clean room. The nose fairing is a bit misshapen. Shouldn't be an issue once installed on the bike. I'll do that this weekend. The decal installer had the shakes this day... The A in the Panigale is raised 1/8". Weirdly, it's the same on both sides. I will reserve final judgment until I get them fitted, but there's nothing here that would cause me to box them up and send back to China for refund.

Thank you very much for the posting pictures. I can't wait to see how the installation turns out and if that nose fairing will be an issue. I guess the decal guy was on his Friday shift for the A to be that off, unless they did intentionally for some reason or another. Anyway thank you again and can't wait to see how it all installs for you.

Well, so far, I'm not having much fun with this install. Took me probably 2 hrs to get the nose fairing on the bike, no joke. Granted, I've never put this exact piece on this bike, but holy crap that was fiddly. I managed to snap a few small tangs off the piece that wedges under the headlight assembly. But the worst part was getting the bolts through the fairing stay and into the fairing tab behind. I consider myself to be pretty handy with tools, but I felt like I had 5 thumbs today.
If you order this kit and don't already have all the fasteners, plan to source those yourself. The freebies they send in the box are generic hardware nuts and bolts. Completely useless. I just chucked them right into my nuts and bolts tray.
Also, the red isn't a great color match for the tank. Little hard to see in the photo, but the fairings are a lighter shade of red.
More to come, but I may have to order more bolts to complete the job.

Thank you for the picture and the installation snafu's you had. I have had the nose piece off 3 times since owning my 899 so I can do it easily now, but what you went through is crazy. I think I am going to pass on this full set from this company. My OCD would kill me with the quality and what you went through to put it all together. I had the preconception that for $500 it would need to be fiddled with but not at the degree you went through. This would make a nice track set but that's not what I'm doing with the bike. So you bolted everything up already? How are you going to reach the bottom screws to attach the windscreen?



I am going to get all my hardware from Pro Bolt USA and they have a great track record of reviews. I am either going to keep the bike the same in the OE fairings or go this route with Carbon Fiber https://www.motocomposites.com/products/full-set-of-ducati-panigale-899-1199-black-orange-100-carbon-parts.html.


In any event THANK YOU so much for your honest review I sincerely appreciate it!

Hey Jeff,
I stepped away from the ledge after posting this and ordered up some stainless bolts from Pro-Bolt. Will wait for those to come in to proceed any further.
I also read a bunch of reviews on naked bikes. I think my days of futzing with large and complicated fairings are coming to a close...

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?
