History
Trackday bike.
Wanted a new trackday bike. Had fallen for the grunt of the 2Valve engines. So my choice ended with an wrecked ST2 with 8000miles on the clock. First time out, I was 1 second faster at the local track, than I was on my SRAD gsxr....

Basic bike is st2 (Frame, fueltank/fuelsystem, Wheels and engine)
999 fairing with Monster S4 bellypan
Kawasaki zx6r 2013 rear end
1098 carbon front fender
Standard ST2 front fork with Ohlins springs
Panigale rear shock
Brembo RCS masters
Brembo P4/34 front calipers, standard in the rear
SIL Moto headers, Monster 900 and MIVV slipons
California cycle Works airfilters
Ducati St2 race chip(original Ducati)
999R oilcooler
St4s swingarm
Starlane QS and GPS laptimer
1998 Ducati St2

Modifications

Drivetrain
Wheels where sandblasted, painted and fitted with wheelskinzz
Interior
This was my starting point.
Exterior
Monster S4 bellypan meets 999 fairing.
Audio
The Panigale rear shock is way better than I could hope for!
Suspension
Home made carbon seatpan. Mold was made from plywood.

Steering damper was some old leftover from my former 1988 gsxr.
Wheel and Tire
Starlane QS mounted on its carbon bracket. OEM rev counter and display mounted on a 999 fairing bracket

G'day Pedersen106,

Like many on the forum, I love this build you have here.
I am looking for fairing options for my 1997/8 ST2 as a slightly sportier commuter tourer, with supersport bars) as I see you've nicely used) or stock bars; I was wondering whether i could ask three questions about your 999 fairing choice and fitting?

1 Was the 999 fairing a particularly good fit, or did you consider other fairings that could have worked? (I'm 'all ears' here - very keen to know!)
2 Did you need to cut/modify on the ST2's steel fairing brackets/supports to fit the 999 fairing? Did you perhaps need make new brackets?
3 I saw your modification to the 999 fairing in 18434.jpg - Was that to get around an obstruction on the ST2 frame/engine, or maybe to accomodate the rider's knees? Or another reason?

I fully understand you may have race/craft secrets you want to keep, of course. (Mind you, you don't need to worry about me as a track competitor or imitator - all my bikes' tyres have 'chicken lines' from never getting a decent lean!)

Any info from you would be very much appreciated and used with discretion of course!

Hi Rich.
I Am very, very sorry for this late reply! Shitty year on my part....!
I hope that I haven´t wasted yout time!

The 999 fairing was not my first choice.(Honda Moto3 fairing). But eventually the 999 was the one that made most sense!
As far as brakets. I had none on the bike at time of purchase. It was a "roller" ....!
So everything is custom made. The fairing/instrumet bracket is as racebraket for the 999 from SES.
The fairing actually fits pretty nice on the ST2

The cutouts on the fairing is mostly thought of, "get the most naked fairing bike that i could". Does that make any sense?

As a road bike. l think that it is too much trouble to get it right.....! Unless you really wan´t a hotrod🤔
No racesecrets from here. I am an open book in regards to such things. Allways happy to help or inspire fellow motorcyclist.

Once again. I am truely sorry that I haven´t responded before now...!

Kindest regards
Martin
