Today 7/7 I received the items by postal so took them 11days to deliver to Netherlands....thats fast enough for me




used the small black tie rap



I used a small black tie-rap for the space at the top...okay its shinny but beter then the little chrome space

And that for just arround USD 25,= incl. shipment.

Looks beefy i think.
Hey Dennis,

I know this is an old post, but I just received all my parts from Yamaha and I’m not sure where the o-rings and rivets go. Could you point me in the right direction? I’m new to all this. Thanks!

Ok fellow riders, can you please tell me where I can get the top covers and the gaiters from. A couple of options would be nice (the cheaper the better :)) I'm not quite ready to get them yet but I would like to bookmark for when I am. I have been looking so I'm not just being lazy.

Is there a way to get the lower fork covers too? I don't really care for the "accordion" looking lower fork covers. Would rather keep it smooth and slick with the same style covers for the upper and lower portions. Thanks.

Hello

Do you still makes these, I am intreseted in a set for my XSR.
I am based in Wellington New Zealand

Regards

Hi guys,

When I got my new XSR I was quite excited by the relative ease of customisation like most of you here, I assume. But, being a new bike there was only a handful of people making off-the-shelf custom accessories and we're pretty limited to what we can do. One of parts I was amazed I couldn't really find for a reasonable price were the fork covers. For me, esthetics wise, the fork covers make the bike look so much better, especially if you've got the fork gators as well. I was struggling to find good ones and even Yamaha themselves here didn't have them as an accessory for this bike.

After a bit research, I ended up buying the jvb moto headlight and fork cover set from Germany, because I liked the idea of changing to that style of headlight and it looked good on their Super7 build. I have since changed my mind as it didn't really fit the the rest of the changes..

The set from JvB was a complete, blatant rip-off to say the least. Not only were they ridiculously over priced (including a crazy delivery fee), but the headlight and the covers where not even painted/powder coated!!!

(I still have the actual set if anyone is interested. I did get them powder coated by the way, so if you do like the look, you can pretty much just put it on.)

On top of that, it looks like they didn't even bother measuring the correct length required for the fork covers! There's a bit of a gap at the top (and by the way, pushing the top mounting points as far down as possible) and it just looks dodgy, seeing the shiny forks behind it. It just wrecks the whole look.


Yamaha's one on eBay cost GBP75, which is about AUD130 + GBP40 (AUD70) shipping fee, which is just crazy.

Anyhow, as I run out of options, I decided to make some myself. ( I run an engineering company here in Melbourne). They came out great and I had fair few guys pick them up through a club here.

So, I just wanted to see if anyone here would be interested in these. They cost 80 Australian dollars + a flat shipping fee of 30 aud anywhere in the world. That works out to be roughly around $90, EUR80 and GBP70 in total. So, a lot cheaper. And it could be even less if we can make a bigger batch, so if you're interested, please let me know.

These by the way, completely made here in Australia, fully CNC machined with high quality aluminium and great black finish. I've attached some pictures for you to have a look at. It literally takes about 15 min to install.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Cheers!

Yes. But when I asked Partzilla online chat. She said that these are for fz07 and won’t work on xsr700. Are they just misinformed?
I'll try to find out where I got mine tomorrow as it was back in Dec and I need to check my history. It was online from the US but I think they are the same

No joy as yet but here is a post from this forum on the subject You needs two covers, two plastic rivets, and two o rings. The o rings go at the bottom of the covers to provide a good fit and as for the rivets =, they go through the covers and into the lower yolk.
