UpOnOne.com Staff ReviewAir-Tech BodyworkFeb 5, 2003

My 1991 Gixxer 750 was starting to look a bit old and I decided it was time for a face-lift. A friend pointed me towards an awesome looking RGV replica body kit that was designed to fit on my bike. After doing some research, I discovered a company in California called Air-Tech manufactured the fairing he had mentioned.

While checking out their web site, I decided to call Air-Tech to see if I could get some more info on the body I was interested in. The gentleman I spoke to was arrogant & fucking useless. I got of the phone quite pissed and decided I would give my $1500 to someone else! I started to research more companies to see if I could find another, similar kit. Unfortunately, I came up with nothing and decided to order the Air-Tech kit. I did not want to give my money directly to Air-Tech so I called Parts411.com and ordered it from them. Believe it or not, I ended up saving a few dollars!

Once the kit arrived at my house I was pleased to see that the construction of the fiberglass was excellent and the gel coat finish was beautiful. My excitement was quickly curbed when I noticed, that there was not a single hole drilled in the bodywork! Realizing that this was now a bigger job than originally anticipated, I began searching through the box for installation instructions. I was disappointed to discover that the kit did not come with any and that this was intentional.

After 2 days or so, I was able to get the body drilled out and on my bike. To make this work, I ended up having to make my own custom aluminum brackets.

All in all I am pleased with the look and quality of the kit but I do not recommend installing their bodywork if you are inexperienced with mechanics! When it comes time to order, go to Parts411.com, you'll save some money and the people there are much more helpful.
