These are the official/genuine YAMAHA Upper Fork Covers that are fitted as stock to the MT-07.

However, they also fit the XSR700 (you will see two small holes in the top of your Fork Crown where the securing Rivets fit) and look fantastic when paired with Fork Gaiters (YAMAHA/JVB etc.), giving the front end a much beefier, all Black look.

I installed a set of these to my own bike and picked one up for a friend who was considering buying an XSR700 at the time (but eventually went with the MT-07 instead, for size reasons) as well as a spare set.

All parts are brand new and in their original packaging.

The parts that are included are:

Left cover (x1): 1WS-23121-00-00
Right cover (x1): 1WS-23131-00-00
Rivets (x2): 90269-05055-00

YAMAHA EU/UK dealers charge approximately £125 + delivery for these parts.

Note: When YAMAHA factory-fit these to the MT-07, they include an O-Ring at the base of the covers.
These are merely to ensure a tight fit, rather than serving any vital function (the Rivets do a good enough job themselves anyway).
However, YAMAHA charge a ridiculous £5 each or so for these basic O-Rings, so if required, just pick up a couple of standard 42-43mm ones for pennies from most hardware stores.
Alternatively, and a likely superior solution, is to add a very small spot of rubber glue to the top and bottom interior surface of the Covers.


Price: GBP £65 shipped Worldwide

Bump - I still have a set of these available.
They make a massive difference to the front end appearance of the bike, especially when Fork Gaiters are also fitted.

Please, can you explain if it is difficult to mount fork covers?
thank you!
Not very difficult at all - just need to get access to the upper fork legs and then slip the covers over them.
You need to remove the clamp (and any other parts in the way) to do so - there's no messing about with the actual fork itself and no lifting of the front end is required.
I guess it could even be done more easily by cutting a line all the way down the Fork Covers then just snapping them on. I think the material would be resiliant enough to be able to do this and the cut would be invisible if correctly placed.

You can order these parts @ www.partzilla.com
They're rather cheap and also shipping from US to Germany wasn't costy.
