Well I ordered a seat cowl for my 08 back in November when I bought my bike, and I still have never received it so I called the dealer and they told me that it would not even be released from yamaha until the end of June, but I have seen several people on here with them so I call yamaha direct and spoke with one of there parts guys. He told me that the cowls that went out had issues, and yamaha was redesigning the cowl and it would be back out in June. So for those of you with 08's that already have cowls you maybe getting screwed. The guy from yamaha was not even sure if it was going to look the same as the one that is currently out. He did not tell me the issue that they were having with it, so I am wondering has anyone with the 08 cowl had issues with it?
