Motorcycle fairings come in either a single piece fairing or a motorcycle fairings kit. Today, we are going to take a look at a simple motorcycle fairing in the form of the Arlen Ness Paintable Motorcycle Fairing.
Motorcycle fairings from the Arlen Ness brand are quite simple, but they do provide one of the most classic looks among all other motorcycle fairings. The main feature of this motorcycle fairing is that it is highly paintable.
What do I mean by this? It means that this motorcycle fairing is meant to be painted. It does come in black naturally, but since the motorcycle fairing is highly customizable, painting it with another color or putting some pretty cool decals with not be a problem at all.
In terms of protection, the Arlen Ness Paintable motorcycle fairing is a quarter fairing which you can mount at the front end of your motorcycle. It does a pretty good job protecting you from the elements, most especially when you are riding your motorcycle at top speeds.
The Arlen Ness Paintable Motorcycle fairing is created with ABS Plastic, a common material found in most motorcycle fairings these days because it is inexpensive, but very durable. The Windshield, on the other hand, is made of Plexiglass.
When you buy the Arlen Ness Paintable motorcycle fairing, you will get all the necessary bolt-on kits you need in order to install this motorcycle fairing. Most other motorcycle fairings do not include these. It is nice to know that the manufacturer included it because it is indeed a welcome addition.
This motorcycle fairing can fit the Sportster 1200 Nightster XL1200N: 2007–2012. As previously mentioned, the Arlen Ness Paintable Motorcycle fairing is one of the simplest motorcycle fairings to look at.
If you are the type of person who just wants to add a simple aesthetic to your Sportster, then this is the motorcycle fairing to get. Heck, this is even good for people who want to paint and put as many decals on their motorcycle as possible, as this motorcycle fairing is highly customizable. According to the manufacturer, it is meant to be painted on.
With all of that being said, let’s take a look at some of the customer reviews:
Nick: “The Arlen Ness motorcycle fairing is quite easy to install. I did it myself and I am not even a mechanic. There are easy to follow instructions, but some of them are a bit misleading. It said that you need to take off the gas tank, but that is not necessary at all. I just love the fact that they included all of the mounting hardware needed to install this motorcycle fairing.”
Justin: “I own a sportster XL and I found this motorcycle fairing. I love the fact that I can paint any color I want and it really feels sturdy. As far as installation goes, it comes with all the bolts that I need and it is pretty easy as well.”
The Arlen Ness Paintable Motorcycle fairing is a simple and durable motorcycle fairing and it retails at $297.
