Sharkskinz bodywork is without question, the best aftermarket bodywork available for motorcycles today. Available from Riders Discount, Sharkskinz quality is readily apparent from fit, to prepping for paint, to durability.

Not yet listed on our website, Sharkskinz bodywork can be ordered by calling MIKE at 866.931.6644 ext. 804 or by sending us a private message through this forum. Is email more convenient? Write to us at FORUM at RIDERSDISCOUNT dot COM, and we'll get back to you right away!

Note: Bodywork is made to order and production time can take anywhere from 2-4 weeks.

All Sharkskinz race bodywork is made using their proprietary blend of epoxy resins, primers and woven cloth for a perfect fit with no filing or cutting required. These fit perfectly straight out of the box. In addition, they make it easy by including any specialized hardware, spacers or brackets when it’s required so you’re fabricating your own brackets to hang the bodywork like you might when ordering from other brands.



Finished at the factory with a urethane primer, not a gel coat that other brands use to hide imperfections, Sharkskinz bodywork is ready to paint with very little to no prep work. Ask any professional motorcycle painter what brand they prefer to paint and they'll almost always say Sharkskinz.



One of the best things about Sharkskinz bodywork is its crashability. Other cheaper brands will disintegrate or crack when they hit the ground, not Sharkskinz. Sharkskinz bodywork is flexible and crashes really well thanks to the quality of materials used.



Sharkskinz motorcycle bodywork is sold as either a complete kit or individual replacement pieces – so you can start with a completely fresh set of bodywork, or simply replace that which has lost its luster. Some models are available with cut-outs for OEM headlights and taillights. Whether this is your first set of bodywork, or your fifteenth – you won’t be disappointed with what you get straight out of the box.



There's a reason they've been the main supplier to all top AMA teams for years including the Riders Discount Racing team. See why for yourself and order a set for your bike from us today!

The difference between Sharkskinz bodywork and the cheaper brands is the quality of finish and attention to detail that Sharkskinz puts into every set of bodywork they produce.

The finish is uniform with no thin spots. Look at how large the panels of fiberglass are with a minimal amount of resin used. The less resin on the bodywork the better the bodywork can flex without cracking.



The edges are straight and produce a virtually seamless appearance when the upper and lower are paired together. There are no gaps when mounting Sharkskinz bodywork to your motorcycle.



Give MIKE a call to order your next set of bodywork today!

The mold of the intake is nearly identical to the stock shape so there is no need for a rubber gasket or any kind of additional modifications to make this work like you might need to do with some other brand's bodywork.

Just another example of Sharkskinz quality, give MIKE a call to order a set for yourself today!
