Well,..granted,.my only experience with Air-Tech is from a race solo seat I purchased from Yoshimura when I was riding the GSXR750L.
Finishing is as confirmed by you,.excellent. The primary approach by Air-Tech is that the products made by them are catered to racing,.which their selling point is to lighten the bike as much as possible.
Weight is a major obstacle in RACING. They are doing the best possible engineering feat in helping the racer lose weight. The weight-saving benefits displaces several other factors,.f which we are to consider if we usethe bike for daily transport.
The glass fibres are designed to crack, break on impact only to be repaired and re-used for the next race day. The GP/Superbike versions will disintegrate/contort on impact.
Well,..maybe after some crashes,..the glass fibre panels after each repair becomes stronger, thicker, and more durable as it gets binned. Just food for thought.
Just called them and got a quote for US$402 per kit if we buy 3 kits. Kit includes everyting except rear fenders only. Thickness is confirmed at 80 thou,.and all stress points are re-inforced and thickened. Sounsd like a good deal to me. Shipping is going to cost quite a bit, unless bigphil can make some arrangements. One Box per Size is going to be 40" X 22" X 23".
Anyone interested in this joint buying? we can split the cost of shipping...call me anytime. 96898903.
