Slotted airbox cover

Does anyone have one on their R1? I've got the crossplane and was thinking of getting the cf version, what are your thoughts? I've actually heard they suck... And yes, I'm searching the site for more info...

Look closer...lol



It's not to the same quality as the Akrapovic cover I had before but it's not bad. The fitment is really tight so I'm going to do a little grinding and then have it all painted pearl white to match the tank except for the top center strip which will remain carbon for an accent.

Good to go. Coming from you, I'll definitely think more seriously about getting my hands on it. Oh yeah, I figure a while, but about how long did it take yours to get home?

About a month. Don't be in a hurry, Just order it and forget about it. That way it will be a surprise. I got the airbox cover along with the rear hugger but I wanted mine in plain weave to match the swinger cover. I had the first swinger cover shipped to the US in Jan '11 a month after they started offering them. I waited over ten weeks for one back then.

I have the same Lacomoto one in twill...like burn-z said, it fits very tight. Ordered it with the Lacomoto swingarm cover and hugger....got to me in about a month.
