Race Plastics Help PLEASE

So I'm not the most internet search savvy individual out there and I'm trying to find a deal on a full set of race plastics for my 05 R6. Prefferably pre-drilled. I've been told to go with armour bodies or shark skinz. Looking for advice and deals if you guys/gals can find em for me! Thanks!

I don't think any race bodywork comes predrilled, unless you buy used.

There aren't really any deals out there, the expensive stuff is expensive and the cheap stuff is cheap. Maybe a licensed racer may be able to get you a better price.

Ask Ronhix, Armour Bodies is one of his sponsors.

i always do things the hard way. never bought predrilled. but i`ve been around since before drills

Operating a motorcycle. So easy, even a caveman can do it. Knowing how to ride? Priceless.

Discount if you are a Nesba member through Armour Bodies as well. Anyone know are those predrilled? I need to get a set but don't want to drill either.

As part of the Lithium Motorsports team this year we have been using E-Racings bodywork. Two of our bikes have been dirt magnets and crash tested this stuff at least six times this year. We have been able to finish the event with out repairs. We do repaint after every crash to keep the bikes looking good. Armour bodies makes some good stuff but if cost is a problem I would give E-Racings a try. Don't waste your time or money on Shark skins.
