RGS fairing lowers

As per title, anybody interested? As shown in pic I robbed from the www, apologies if it's your bike. Should also snug up nicely to the 1000SFC fairing.

Asking for a friend... he is considering making replicas from his pristine example, just gauging market demand.

Hi Piet

I would buy that lower fairing.

Additionally, I have had two sets of stock Bayflex fairing extenders break on my Executive. I bought a set of fiberglass fairing extender replicas from Wolfgang and so poorly made that although I started the fitting process I have never got them to a point where I would consider using them. If your friend were to also make really nice fairing extension replicas I bet there would be a market for those, I would buy a set.

Alternatively, if anyone has a set of intact original Bayflex fairing extenders they would part with, let me know, I am your buyer.
 
For track use they would need to be extended to include a belly pan to catch all the oil. Oh, and to cover any covers that could leak oil if you fell off. Then I might be interested.

You mean the ones of the executive (the "side-wings")? I don't have those, but if you want the lower fairing and Piet's friend does not find enough interest, I have one on the shelve and am open for offers (shipping to Canada might be expensive though?!?). IIRC, it is made of GFK though, not Bayflex

Guess a belly pan could be incorporated without too much drama. I do fear cornering clearance would be severely compromised though, not unknown for RGS to drag the lower frame rails at stock suspension height (once the alternator cover has been chamfered!).

Which Laverdas actually "leak" oil, Andy. None known to me... ;)

Unfortunately Piet, as you probably realise, rules are rules these days and it matters not one jot to many scrutineers how tedious some of the rules have become.
Strangely enough, I was expecting a comment about ground clearance, so the construction will either have to be very thin or very abrasion resistant. šŸ˜œ
 
Yes Andy,

Belly pans are designed to cope (as well as they can) with the rapid non-scheduled disassembly that affects racing machines every now and then. Just a shame that so many are poorly executed, badly incorporated or simply fucking ugly, not to mention inhibiting the bikes functionality.

Anyway, I'll pass the suggestion on.

4 strokes have to have a catch tray with volume for the full oil capacity of the engine, only 3 litres for my SF. That was said to be in case a rod punches out the bottom of the crankcase, which is virtually impossible for an SF. Those who have thrown rods out the front (like PietĀ“s trick SFC), how much oil made its way out the hole, and would a catch tray have stopped it? Virtually every single case of oil onto the track here has been due to pressurised oil lines coming adrift, and the catch tray stayed empty. The tray also has to have removable plugs to be taken out for rainy days. A mate crashed badly in the dry when he had forgotten to remove them for the preceding wet session.
