*****UPDATE***** got the word......here's the email I received just a few moments ago....I'll put the USD prices next to the YEN.....discount is for a unit of 12 piece bulk buy plus Ito's commision of 20% of order total... Please read through the info carefully

Hi Robin,

I received price from vendor.

Please refer to attached quotation.

As to this fairing,this fairing does not contain a screen.
User has to prepare with XB9R/XB12R screen from OEM or ZERO gravity.


Regarding quotation for carbon fairing,
Carbon fairing list price is 30,000yen/1ea.  $373.40 USD
We can buy it at 21,000yen + 1,050yen sales tax for 12ea.  $261.35 / $13.07 USD
Bank wire transfer fee is added.
And please allow me 20% handling comission
because I have to check them when received and bring them to Japan Post Office.
Package will be 2 boxes.
Payment: PAY-PAL   Please select currency "yen"when you transfer money.
After receipt money via.PAY-PAL,I place an order with vendor.
Vendor said "lead time is 6weeks after receipt order".
Shipment:  You can select one from 3 way,
EMS Air freight,SAL Air freight or Surface Ocean freight depend on your budget.


Regarding quotation for FRP fairing,
Carbon fairing list price is 18,000yen/1ea.  $224.01 USD
We can buy it at 12,600yen + 630yen sales tax for 12ea.   $156.81 / $7.84 USD
Bank wire transfer fee is added.
And please allow me 20% handling comission
because I have to check them when received and bring them to Japan Post Office.
Package will be 2 boxes.
Payment: PAY-PAL   Please select currency "yen"when you transfer money.
After receipt money via.PAY-PAL,I place an order with vendor.

Finally,
Although I mentioned color carbon fairing was available earlier ,
which color is dark transparent finish, so it looks almost black like FRP.
List price is 36,000yen.  I do not recommend it.

haven't heard from anyone who showed interest in it, sent pm's and such...nada in return...my family friend is in the Air Force stationed in Japan and asked last week if I was still interested in getting one, said yes, but not immediately...life's happening to me right now, so that will have to be put into the "want list" for now...

if anyone is seriously interested in getting these I can give you the contact info for Ito Katsunori in Japan, he's the one that provided the info about cost and shipping...

Carbon Fiber...$261.35 each + $13.07 shipping per unit...minimum purchase of 12 units to get that price

FRP (Fiber Re-enforced Plastic)...$156.81 each + $7.84 shipping per unit...minimum purchase of 12 units to get that price

don't forget Ito's commission is included into the total cost...

if I had the cash, would do it, but go through Jeff since he could mail through the USPS on base and get it sooner since it would travel via an FPO military address

I'm wondering what the total cost is, 12 FRP fairings plus tax plus 20% = $3338.50. I'd rather have a vendor buy a lot of twelve if we cant get enough for a group buy, but I do have the means to buy them myself if I can sell them all.

I would rock one of those, minus the barkbusters.

Keep in mind the $65 more for a windscreen. http://www.buellparts.net/content-tags/tag_id ...
