I know This is a very minor item but its still a review , or should I say a warning. I bought this overlay off ebay real cheap. So I'm really at no loss. Next one will be bought from skur . Anyways It's a Berg Racing USA Carbon fuel cap overlay . Is super thin and basically a cheap sticker . Here's a picture of the product. Don't waste your time . :thumbdown

When I was developing the way I made my products I took a look at their covers and still have them to use as a comparison for fit and finish quality. I know what you mean....

One layer thick, no surface coat, made out of polyester resin....

I just cut a sheet yesterday using a new method that I've been trying to perfect for the last couple of months. Let's just say that this new method puts the other covers that everyone on here think are so good to shame. The look and edge quality are the same but there is no countless hours of me hand sanding these damn things to make them look good!!! Precision is crazy and work time has dropped DRAMATICALLY!!! Meaning I'll be getting to those colored fabrics sooner than I thought.

I feel your loss even though you got it for cheap..... I have about 150 covers from various manufacturers sitting around. All trash to me. I don't like a single one....

FYI Yamaha makes these and they are very nice and thick! I believe they are just over $30 at my local dealer. My buddy has one on his R1; I would on my R6 if I had the stock cap.

That is true. Yamaha does have them for $30. Or you could buy mine for $18.49 and spend the other $12 toward a triple tree cover that surrounds the fork tubes (the 07-08 R1 cover I bought from Yamaha doesn't surround the tubes) which comes with a matching ignition cover that Yamaha doesn't make, or a gauge cover that Yamaha doesn't make, or just pocket the $$.

It all comes down to how much people want to spend and where they want to spend it at....

I picked up 2 sets of all the carbon covers from SKUR and they look sweeeet. I need to wash and clean up my bikes so I can put it all on. It's really nice looking and glossy. I'll take some pics and post em up at some point!

Chief, post up some pics. I'm thinking about getting the gas cap and triple cover.

the kid that i bought my bike from three years ago had the yamaha one. It was nice but you could tell that he didnt clean the area before he put it on because it was coming up on the corners on the inside...


ripped it off and need to buy the skur full set...

I got my 02 with some cheap shit on the gas cap. I sprayed my entire bike and body with gas one day filling up. It peeled off on its own right after that. :lmao Newb moments like that I don't miss. :laugh

I'll try and get the SKUR stuff put on tonight or this weekend and will post pics.

I will be relisting in a couple days. I'm working on new auctions for the 09-11 ZX6R and 09-11 S1000RR before I relist.
