I have a set on my bike (cbr1000rr) . Mine fit fine , they were predrilled no problems . They are not as good a quilty as some of the name brands , but for the money I am pleased .

Good to know. What kind of paint work did you do afterward? Got any pics?

Well.... I ordered a set of these, and.....
You get what you pay for. The fender bolted right up and gave me a false sense of "everything is cool". The tail was a bit of a PITA to get in place, but again, fit was ok.
Getting on to the main fairing and lower however, was a whole different story. The upper section of the upper was ok, but the lower part that shrouds the radiator was terrible. I finally get the upper into place and start in on the lower. This got really bad.
The damn lower has a fluid break built into it instead of the back part of it being closed, and the break hits the shock linkage. The front part hits the header as well, so I had the get the Dremel out and start trimming. I get those sections trimmed and I am now able to get the lower attached to the upper with the DZus fasteners, but the rear bolt holes are not even close. At least it's pretty solid with the DZus fasteners.
End result is that it's on there, but damned if it's not a PITA to put the upper on. Once that is in place, I can attach the lower easily enough, but it's definately a headache.
Oddly enough, the only drilling I had to do was for two bolt holes in the tail section and one DZus hole in teh lower, which I could have left oout if I wanted to.
Like I said, you get what you pay for I guess. It will work, but it's not anything resembling great at all.
Lower with the stupid partition for fluid retention. This had to be cut down for linkage clearance...
Front part of the lower, which hit the headers...
The lower does not exactly match the upper contour at the front mating points...
I had to trim the upper on the right side since it was hitting the frame and on the left side for the stator cover clearance, but that was to be expected with the Woodcraft cover...

End result is deceiving. Looks decent, but a bit of a process to get there...

definitely some fitment issues, but it's all together now ;)
An a side note, a lot/most of the track bodywork does not work kindly with the factory exhaust system. I had to mod the Attack bodywork on my '08 ZX6R to work with the stock exhaust system. Then after it still burned a hole in the lower, I used that as an excuse to get a full system :D

That's why I am taking steps to prevent heat issues. I knocked the cat out of the stock header and then wrapped it at the cat area, which is where it gets the bodywork hot on these. I am going to be putting a heat shield in the lower as well...

Ron i hate to hear you had to go to all that trouble .
Mine fit fine , did not have to drill or cut anything .

I wish you could come over to see just how difficult the upper is to get in place.
Oh well. Like I said, they will work for now. I'll run em until I can't...
