Installation Note: The lower does fit over the stock exhaust headers/catalytic converter, but it’s very close and you may want to add heat shielding to prevent the lower from overheating while not moving. If it overheats the paint may discolor and decals might peel off, we won’t replace lower if this happens to your bike. OEM Windscreen requires trimming, or you can notch the bodywork.

For those of you that are in need of a new set of bodywork…I wanted to take a minute to provide my personal views of the Hotbodies stuff. I’ve used different manufactures before as well as the older stuff from Hotbodies so I do have something to compare to. I first tried Hotbodies bodywork years ago when they were at the grand finals in Atlanta. I got a couple of sets because they were selling a decent price and because they had such a presence at the WERA event. The old stuff did the job but it did seem a little too rigid and the finish was not the best. These issues didn’t matter to me too much because I have the time to spend on minor issues like that.
Now, fast forward to this new set of bodywork that I just got for the S1000…A LOT has changed with Hotbodies. The major differences that I immediately noticed were:
1) Everything was individually wrapped in bubble wrap ensuring that there were no scratches or nicks with anything.
2) Everything is a lot less rigid, more flexible
3) The finish is a lot better than before. I only had one very small spot by the mirror mount on the upper that required any filler. This was such a minor spot that I could have just used some primer to fill the spot in but I was too lazy to go through the trouble of that. The only thing I did before adding paint besides the filler in that one spot was wet sand briefly and the finish come out great.
4) when I fit tested the bodywork I was expecting the process to be more time consuming than it was. With the old bodywork, it wasn’t a simple matter of drilling the center of the securing location but with the new stuff that is all I did. After eyeballing everything when just holding the bodywork in place I decided to just drill in the center of the indicator marks and try it out. Everything fit great the first try!
After I painted everything and have had a few chances to take the bodywork off and put it back on, I continue to be impressed with it. I don’t have to force anything in place nor worry about anything cracking. It goes in place just like it should.
I’ve heard people debate the crash worthiness of different bodywork and unfortunately, I’ve had the chance to put the new Hotbodies to the test. Again, I was impressed with how it performed but I still think it’s just the luck of the draw when it comes to crashes when comparing anything on the bike. Sometimes it works out good and sometimes it doesn’t.
