I bought this tail section because mine was damaged for my 2010 SFS and I needed a replacement. The OEM one was way too much. I found this at Shift-Tech. I had ordered other parts form them in past and they have been very nice quality. I just got this the other day and I was very impressed with finish. I thought I would share this on forum in case someone else was looking for tail section. I guess I needed an excuse to add carbon...:D . I will be puttting on bike over the winter since I have a few more things to replace.
The icing on the cake for this part, is that Shift-tech has 10% discount and free shipping for forum members.

You could have posted a WTB ad, I have one hanging off the basement joists somewhere!
Either way, carbon is the way to go IMO and with Shift-Tech you sure get primo quality. Congratulations!

Your right, I didn't even think about that. I was a little freaked out by OEM price $850:eek: . I figured I needed a excuse to go to carbon:). I do need front rotors:) . I'm tring to find some and it looks like only OEM ones have the caps in them for Traction control system. The aftermarket rotors don't seem to have them.

Thanks

:):):) I agree, That maybe in the cards after I get the rest of parts to put bike back together. She needs a few more things. Here is what she looks like now:( The front wheel took a little hit. I was able to get that fixed

Yeah, I know:eek:. I thought there was no way that could be fixed. In the after picture the impact area was right side..opposite side of valve stem. They did a awesome job. I found a local shop ( Alloy Wheels, OEM wheels, Aluminum Wheel, Rim Repair in Atlanta GA | Metro Wheels). They fixed it and powder coated it for $175 total price. That in itself is awesome. They could not match OEM bronze so I went with a black that they had. It is darker than picture. I do have to replace wheel bearing because of straighten and powder coating but that is much cheaper than new front wheel (OEM - $1750):eek: . I was looking at buying new sets of wheels because of that price.
