I do. They mount really easy and look to be very good quality, although I haven't crash tested them yet. *knock on wood*. You should get a discount on them if you are a nesba member.

If you want to come check them out let me know.

I think the set I bought off from Glenn for my RR is Armour Bodies. They seem to be ok, although a little thin in some places. But they're track plastics so who cares.

If it's the set that came off his RR, those are not armour bodies.

I got a set. Nice stuff. The do mount pretty easy, but if you have aftermarket case covers or exhaust, then you should be prepared to do some trimming and sanding.

Look into it. NESBA membership is $75 and I think they get at least $100 off. If that's true then it's like you save $25 and get a free membership which can come in handy for those race plastics

I've got Armour Bodies on my RR. They are great quality plastics...right up there with the best. Fit is good, holds well in a crash, and not thin in any spots.

I see you're getting all into this track scene pretty hard core. Thats good.

You need safety equipment too. Buy my old back protector if you don't have one already!! Better safe than sorry.

See you out there sometime. If you were at Autobahn on Sunday, I was the hot orange 600rr in I, #77.

Here's a pic of the Armour Bodies with some DC Decals, which I recommend for all that vinyl you'll want to be putting on the new plastics.

Remember that price doesn't include the tank cover. Don't know if you want that or not. They can charge a lot for that. For me it was something like an extra $150.

Enes,

I do not think you are going to beat NESBA's price on the set. Eric Wood from Woodcraft is the supplier now and has set his prices to the business standard.

I have painted and decal'd a couple of sets of these - you will not go wrong with the Pro Series.

Make it easy on him. Go to dafonts.com. They're all free fonts, click on them, scroll through the letters/numbers to see what they look like, then tell Dean which one you want.

You have thousands of choices there!!

I called and Armour quoted me over $800 for plastics for the 996. I found a set of rashed plastics for $100, and had Ken do his magic to them. Fit is perfect, the plastics are all oem.
