The ABS difference. If your shopping for replacement bodywork you may ask yourself: Is there really any difference between ABS Fairings and any of the other fairing manufacturers? And if so, what separates us from the rest?
The simple answer is quality, fitment & service. There are currently over 50 factories that produce motorcycle fairings, each having their own standard for quality. ABS Fairings has the experience, the equipment, and the talent that truly set us apart. (If the others are the same as us, why would they copy so many ABS innovations & designs?)
Our History. This year we celebrate our 8th year since our factories opening in 2008. Our humble beginnings were spent creating custom race windscreens for the latest sport bikes & the occasional cafe racer. We eventually expanded into a full size facility now specializing in high end graphics & custom paint work on our precision molded fairings. Many of our customers have tried the cheap eBay fairings before, and they always tell us they just don't compare with ours.
We attend all of the major motorcycle events in our industry, including Bike Week Daytona/Myrtle, Stuntwars, AMI Expo.
In early January 2013 our factory was partially destroyed by an accidental fire. What replaced the original factory was a completely new, state of the art manufacturing and design facility. ABS Fairings 21,000 sq. ft. factory now uses the latest Injection Mold machines, 5 in total, and the very best paint facility which includes 3 new paint booths, 2 full conveyor dryers, and major improvements to quality control.
We don't just offer bodywork either, we can customize your entire ride for a great price. Powder coating & custom painting services are very affordable & our mail-in service makes it an easy process. We've also expanded into custom brake lines, race levers, HIDS, & frame sliders. All of our products are tested on our bikes to the extreme & we stand behind everything we make or sell.

ABS Fairings® Mold: It starts with Japan imported virgin thermoplastic. It’s flexible, durable, and able to withstand extreme temperatures. We inject our high quality ABS plastic into an exact spec mold so the fairing is made with precise measurements, just like OEM.
Prep Work: A 2-part primer is used next followed by a “sealer” coat. By properly priming and sealing the parts, the final finish will look brilliant & last years to come.
Base Coats: We generally apply 2-3 coats of base and secondary colors. This can be one of the most time consuming steps depending on the complexity of the design.
Applying Graphics & Decals Before we apply graphics or decals we spray a light “inter-coat clear.” This keeps the base coat colors safe while we cut & fit graphical elements.
Clear Coat: This is one of the most important steps to a beautiful paint job. We use Fortune 2-part clear coat with an additive flex agent. We carefully apply 2-3 generous coats to ensure adequate protection and a brilliant shine.
Packaging: While this step may not seem as intense as the others, it’s during this time all parts undergo our quality control inspection. We don’t just check every tenth or hundreth fairing, we check every single part to ensure it’s 100% perfect (This kind of thing could give a profit-driven, cheaper-price fairing maker a heart attack).
Do you think you’re worth this degree of attention? Do you really think it’s something you can get with just any eBay kit or Chinese website?
It comes down to this: You could go through a bunch of cheap aftermarket fairings and end up spending more because you’ll have to replace the brittle, fading, and ill-fitting parts year after year, or you can buy a quality made fairing set from a reliable company with a track record. When you consider everything that goes into ABS bodywork, it’s a bargain compared to OEM.
Your bodywork represents your motorcycle and they’ll be on your bike for many years to come, so compromise somewhere else.
