I want to buy a carbon fiber triple tree cover and speedo / tach carbon fiber cover for my 99 r6. Where is a good place to find these 2 things other than e bay. I dont trust the quality of e bay stuff like that, it looks cheap sometimes and you can really never tell. I cant see to find any shops that carry it. thanks

raydogg, here is a link from eBay where I got mine for my 03 R6.
He has this one for 99. I think this is one of the best cover on eBay and sells it for $15.00 w/ $5 shipping. He ships from Hawaii but he'll get it to you within 4-5 days. The quality of the item is superb, it is real carbon and uses a UV protective coating. He is also a great guy you can trust on eBay. I had mine for almost a year and it still in great condition! The carbon fiber quality is really nice, looks 3D...it is the real thing!

ok, bear with me here. Why would you want to put extra parts onto your bike? I thought most people bought new parts (like a 520 convo kit to save weight, or new rearsets, carbon hugger, carbon front fender) to lighten their bikes, not to add more on. Granted I know its a small piece and probably weighs next to nothing but its the principle of it! Not trying to be a dick, just a random thought.....

it's for mainly looks & protection my friend. I'm no racer nor into competition so weight savings is no importance at this time. And plus the thing weighs like nothing at all and it's real carbon.

And main reason why I bought it too is I had scrapes over it from my lowside last year and that was a cheaper alternative than replacing the whole triple tree :cheers

I also bought from the same guy as Mikeeh76 and the quality is great, I recieved it in about 3 days, good ebay guy.

Some of the other ones on ebay looked kind of flat and dull.

what;s up raydogg, it's cool to bring old threads back up.
To be honest with you, I bought mine way before he started putting his logo on the carbon pieces. But his products are great quality and 100% real carbon. I am thinking maybe the logo is embedded underneath the carbon clear coating. otherwise I haven't seen it in person.
Try emailing him about your concerns regarding the logo. He is a good guy. I am guessing he wants his logo on there as a patent?
