Any aftermarket fairing kit is going to require some degree of tweaking to get it perfect. It's not factory bodywork and your expectations need to be realistic. Ask 10 people about any fairing manufacturer and 5 will tell you it was great and the other 5 will tell you it was a PITA.

Overall, in terms of the 1299, MotoXP has gotten a lot more praise than criticism and so far they've been great to work with so that's what I'm going with.

Will report back down the road after I receive them and ultimately get them installed.
Thanks from Twistedracer and Rinzlr

Also sharkskinz just released their tail, full fairings coming soon

Sharkskinz would have been my move but I didn't want to wait forever. I considered the Armor Bodies but when I spoke to them they said there was no belly pan for the kit.

Good indication of priorities being in the right place.

How was the install? Did you use all the OEM brackets?

Copy/Paste here.. had sent this to another member.

I got the windscreen, tank, IMU and DZUS fasteners options included (basically everything). However the windscreen fasteners that came with the kit were waay bigger than the screen eyelets. I could have used them, but I would have had to not only drill out the nose, but also enlarge the windscreen eyelets. Probably could have been done, but there wasn't a ton of material left to work with, so I opted to just re-use the stock ones.

I didn't need any extra fasteners from Ducati. The ONLY thing I need extra was some flange nuts to go on the 2 bolts where the outer IMU mounts attach. basically it used the threaded clip that was on the old fairing, but doesn't exist on these. Also, you will be short 1 Dzus fastener if you only opt for the 10 pack, since the left side lower uses for 4 instead of three. You will need/want an additional kit. You can get it from them or just order some 17mm Dzus fasteners yourself. I know they sell the black chrome ones instead, if you want them to be a little more incognito. I'll probably pick up a set of the black ones off Amazon or w/e.

As far as fitment, honestly, the hardest part was the nose/intake ducts. The duct doesn't actually attach to anything. It's supposed to slide into the neck/frame and then the front clip just pushes up against it.. However, it doesn't fit. Once you have the headlight assembly off and can see into the air filter, the tract has two eyelets hanging down into the opening. These are just the tip of the iceberg with regard to the fitment. I basically cut out the entire top side of the square end of the intake that goes into the neck, as a relief opening, which allowed it to slide back into place. It's tricky getting the depth where you want it and required me to cut some, then refit the nose, then cut again, refit etc. etc. until I got it where it needed to be and still held the intake in snug. Once I got the depth about right, the nose angle needs to come up a bit, but the intake would come into contact with the IMU, which is bad. IMU won't like any vibration, which is why it is rubber isolated 2x over.

If I had enough time, I would have just waited and got the Motoholders or even better the MWR fairing stay which has the ducts built in..


The side panels and lowers are really dependent on the nose being in its proper position, but once you have that, they are fairly easy. The lowers are a little tricky where the overlaps are underneath and the mid side tabs. I just opted for zip ties on the mids and the bolt on the front overlap, with a zip tie for fallback/safety.

Anyway, GOOD LUCK! Just remember it's track body work and it's not perfect, but gets the job done of saving the expensive stock stuff from damage.
Thanks from Thamer
