With some changes, please read more detail at below section lol
Morten asked us to make below changes based on the original design:
1) I would like the red/gold decals to line up on the side fairings and tail section. I meant moving the stripe up higher on the tail section, and rotate the stripe on the side panel to line up with stripe on tail section. That way we get a nice wide blue field :)
2) I would like the blue to be a deeper, darker metallic blue.
3) I would like to have the red/gold stripe from the side panels continue across the radiator cover and have the bottom half of the radiator cover painted the same metallic blue as the side panels.
I have finished installing the fairing and in general, it is really nice. As promised I return with some photos and in-depth feedback on your product.
There are a few problems I’ll try to show you, for you to improve your production and make your product even better. Some of the problems I’ll point out you might already be aware of, other might be more challenging for you to uncover unless you actually have the experience of fitting an aftermarket fairing on the specific motorcycle model – in this case the Honda NC30.
Please keep in mind, despite the (positive) criticism, that I’m far from a dissatisfied customer! I still think you have world-class customer service and packaging, and I’m generally very satisfied with your product, but I also see room for improvement.
In this mail, just for completion, I’ve included the problems already mentioned in previous emails, which you have already responded to.
Ok, here goes:
Paint – in general:
In general, the paint application quality is varying. Your strong points across the board are the colors – as mentioned earlier they are deep, rich and vivid; very, very good. The rear panels have very good and vivid colors but have also areas with a too-thin (see-through) paint layer, but the clear coat is excellent with a rich smooth finish. The tank cover has very good colors and paints too, but the weak point here is the clear coat: The left side of the tank cover appears to have some clear coat, the right side appears to have very little if any clear coat. The surface seems rippled, unsmooth and unfortunately also with a few errors: A spec of sand / dust / impurity has gotten into the paint or top coat and does not have the same top coat brilliance as the rear panels for example. and also a little chip in the lower right side). I’d say that your top layer / clear coat need some improvement to reach the level of your colors application and decals.
Fitting – in general:
As already mentioned, in general, your fairing parts had a really nice fit, and honestly much better than I expected from a compression molded, fittings hand-glued, pre-drilled fairing kit. Well done! I had to make minor cuts in 4 places total, and only very minor modifications. I’d like to point out that the tank cover has an excellent and very snug fit. There is NO air space in there. Really impressive fit! Nose cone fitted almost perfect too.
(Already mentioned and covered) On both rear sections, in the area where the panels join behind the seat, the white paint is so thin that it doesn’t even cover the base coat – you can clearly see the base coat through the top layer.
Photo 0601, 0602 and 0603:
(Already mentioned and covered) The “Rothmans” text decal on left side lower fairing didn’t come out satisfactory. The text has come off the fairing in a couple of spots and has subsequently been clear coated on top without being properly attached / corrected first. Additionally, the text decal is slightly skewed (but not much) and has numerous air bubbles trapped under it.
(Already mentioned and covered) All Rothmans logos (placed on both upper side fairings, nose, and front mudguard) are of a disappointing low print quality: Very obvious horizontal lines from printing. Text and field lines are fuzzy/blurry/cloudy/hazy and all-white text has a pink tint to it. I want to mention that all other decals are the good quality by any standard: Sharp, crisp lines and with very good colors and color saturation – did something go wrong with the Rothmans Logos?
(Already mentioned and covered) The small rear connection piece between the tail lights is deformed and bend out of shape.
First modification: The radiator cover and the lower left side panel did not join as shown in the photo. The reason is that the end of the folded recess on the left side cover was closed off and the radiator cover simply couldn’t enter the recess. I cut up the folded recess in the lower left side panel and the radiator cover enters nicely (modification not shown).
Second modification: The assembly behind the seat didn’t have a good fit. I removed approximately 1,5mm of material from each side of rear panel, to get the parts to fit nicely together, and I had to modify/recut the hole for the around the passenger seat lock. I’ll smooth the edges out and touch up with paint at a later time.
Movie clip 2537:
Third modification: The lower left side panel didn’t leave room for the side stand to pass. The movement of flipping out the side stand would catch the bottom side of the panel from the inside and force it outward, and could easily damage the fairing if left unattended. I cut out 3-4mm in an arc, and now the side stand passes freely the lower left side panel (modification not shown).
(No photo). Fourth modification: On both upper side panels I had to cut / open up the recesses in the joining brackets. The nose cone and both upper side panels simply didn’t join, because the recess in the joining brackets wasn’t sufficiently wide for the fairing part to enter and join. Very minor modification.
The fixture for the bracket doesn’t exist on your corresponding fairing part. Missing this fixture for mounting the bracket means that the tail lights can’t be properly secured. See movie clip 2581.
See movie clip 2581:
Movie clip 2581 shows how the taillights are not properly secured in the tail section. See photo 2580 for the original part and the fixtures for securing the bracket.
Photo 2582 and 2583:
Joining the 2 tail panels with the tail center part is troublesome. Maybe it is due to the fact that the tail center part was received bend/warped, and was reshaped (by me), that the fixtures and recesses don’t join seamlessly. The gap is approx. 3 mm.
Photo 2584 and 2585:
The cut-out for the tail lights are skewed and not straight and doesn’t fit the tail lights well. The gap between panels and the taillights are 3-5 mm.
Photo 2587, 2588, 2589, 2590 and 2591:
The colors on the tank cover are very good, but the clear coat is less impressive. The clear coat is generally poorly applied; uneven and cloudy – especially on the right side. I’ve tried to photograph a direct comparison on photo 2587 – please, notice the cloudy reflection on the right side.
Photo 2588 shows the ‘good’ side; you’ll probably be able to see the ripples and unsmooth surface.
Photo 2589 is a reference photo of another motorcycle – it’s parked in the same spot, in the same light and the same reflection; and in my opinion, it’s the quality I think you should strive to achieve.
Photo 2590 is a small chip in the paint, but it’s on the underside of right side edge and not really a problem – I can’t even rule out, that I myself, made the chip in the paint during the assembly, as I didn’t see it until after the assembly.
Photo 2591 shows the impurity / speck of dust or sand stuck in the paint.
Comments by GoMotoTrip:
Appreciate such in-depth review from Morten!
We do understand this is frustrating when it comes to compression mold fairing which is not perfect at all compared with the injection mold fairing. (It’s really out of an option as only compression mold fairing available for such classic bike in the aftermarket industry.)
What GoMotoTrip would do is to do the best customer service to balance such disadvantage of compression mold, like provided the FREE replacement in some situation like you’re in. Even you didn’t mention the fairing review post, we will do what we should do.
So what we’ve addressed is that the replacement of the below lower side fairing will be made + the correct version of Rothman decals. You don’t have to pay for the shipping cost as well. We should be paying this careless at our own.
Made by High-Quality ABS Plastic: Compression Molded
Guarantee of triple-layers-base painting
Guarantee of three-layer clear coat covered
1 x free heat shield applied on the lower fairing
1 x free windshield included
1 x free Do-It-Yourself service included

This fairing will be shipped directly from China where we’re located.
Listed offer includes free shipping by China Post to most country. If pay extra, your fairing package could be shipped by China EMS, HK Post or Cargo Boat.

You can find most of the answers here:
Yes, our price is not included any tax and you have to pay the import tax fee when your fairing package arrived.
Depends on the rule of your country, normally the USA is non-tax needed. Most of the country is setting the charge-tax-line on how much value your package is. In our experience, we only declare USD$100 on your fairing package, somehow it could help you to reduce duty cost, for the exact tax rate, please do double check with your local customs.
⇒For example for UK riders: Tax and customs for goods sent from abroad (https://www.gov.uk/goods-sent-from-abroad/tax-and-duty)
From the date when you place the fairing order, it’s as scheduled:
⇒ 15-20 working days for production
⇒ 6+ working days for delivery (Click Here For The Exact ETA)
Not sure if this is workable for you, it’s still worth a try anyway as we’ve been doing this for some riders:
⇒ Split The Total Amount
⇒ Pay Them Separately
For example, the total amount of your fairing order is US$600, let’s split the total amount as following:
⇒ US$100 (this smaller value will be declared as the value of your fairing package, and a specific invoice will be made and sent to you as well, in case the customs are asking for it)
This sounds a little bit crazy, but it did works and it’s going to save your budget :-)
We do not ship to post office boxes at this time. In most cases, many Post Offices will return larger packages to sender because they do not accept or cannot handle larger parcels. In order to provide exceptional service and on time delivery of all items we do not ship to post office box addresses.

Will GoMotoTrip Fairing’s color match my old ones?
Do you send me the paint color code used to paint my fairing kit?
In GoMotoTrip, any fairing marked as injection molded does have the OEM fitment.
The injection mold goes like this:
=====For your info=====
Only for some vintage sportbike, GoMotoTrip has no injection mold but just compression molding for them, as it plays a good role in creating old model fairing.
The compression mold goes like this:
YES. IT WILL. IT MUST BE.
It’s been decades that GoMotoTrip ship fairing worldwide, we in person have seen what happens to our boxes when they go overseas.
Therefore we wrap them all in the protection of foam and sponge material (Clean, non-abrasive, lightweight and waterproof):
