Just bought my first 2006 Ninja 636 on craigslist few days ago. It needs some work done, but one thing that stands out is the cracked fairings.

I need a new full set, but I can afford to pay the ridiculous prices they have them up for.

Where would I be able to find the cheapest fairings, have any websites that are reputable? I don't care too much about the quality, and durability, if I drop it whether it's OEM or not it's going to be screwed.

Any advice?

Cheap fairings = ebay, you can check my thread or look at this(since its still on the computer's clip board).

These are ebay fairings on my bike, but I assure you it was a bitch to get them on and not at all for the faint of heart.




Cheap, or quality. Pick only one lol

Thanks for the quick reply. I've been looking on ebay and it seems it's the cheapest. Do you know which ebay "seller" you bought it from? The prices range from like 400 total ( that's with a 200 shipping included) or 800 total.

How much did you pay for yours?


Also another question, kind of off topic. The dude I bought my bike from has a straight pipe on the bike, so it's super freakin loud. I'm pretty sure it's illegal, can you guys give me any insight on that?

Just buy the cheapest one. I am almost positive they all come from the same factory.

I paid 525 for mine with the windscreen, heat shield, and a tank pad.

Try to look for package deals like that.

I can't stress enough how much you need to be aware that you will require a set of files, patience, and some skills. You may even need to outright move some of the brackets.

While I did not have to move any of mine, they almost all had to be enlarged in order to accommodate the stock mounting fasteners. And even then, they do not mount the same as the stock parts all the time. Sometimes you will find extra tabs that you will need to obtain fasteners for.

Also, they are brittle as hell and can't really take a whole lot of flex. On the front right of mine, I pushed up on the fairing at the top of the windscreen just a little bit to stick the fairing stay through the holes, and it split the plastic right next to the ram air duct.

And the paint chips extremely easily at the edges, and is very thin/easy to scrape off. I have a couple of small places that need touchups just from the simple act of sliding them around on top of a table.

nice cycle fairings

i bought some fairings from nice cycle and they fit nice but ..
omg ..
if you get one from them its not going to match oem paint \scheme
i suggest you get unpainted from from them since its only going to reduce the cost by 100.00
another course of action is to repair the ones you have its easy to do until you get what you looking for.
if i had to do it again i would of just held out and got the origina fairings from the dealer or aftermarket web sites.

as of right now im painting my bike parrot green because the green that nice cycle shipped on my new fairings did not match oem, i ended up with three shades of green. paint shop is charging me 1300.00 and nice cycle fairings 800(+-) with d-axis rear sets in the shippment all together 1400.00

i think i could of got a better deal on the paint job somewhere else but i needed the bike ready for the 12' season.
