I took my fairings off before I took it to the shop and decided to put the mini-fairings on for a while. On the Paul Smart, to me, the full fairings just look better. I have the mini-fairings on my red 1000s and think it looks better with the mini-fairings. It may have something to do with the duel exhaust systems on the bikes, PS being on one side as opposed to the 1000s having the exhausts on both sides filling up the space that is left empty.
I am partial to the full over the half, but honestly, its a win either way. So you're definitely not the only one.
When I bought mine, I actually was looking for something without any fairings (Monster or SC), though I fell in love with the full faired SC, and happened to luck out and find one. I would love to be able to take the lowers off and ride with the exposed engine every now and then. Unfortunately, those were the only original parts that did not come with my bike when I bought it.
I like the look of the full fairing not the 1/2 fairing but thats just me, Thats why I have a 900ss and not a 900cr. But it's your bike not mine ---so it's which one twists your cork the most --thats the way to go.
