Those are the best looking version.

I suggest you take a picture of them installed, have it made into a sticker and then stick onto your swingarm. That way you will always be able to see their sexiness.

I've seen them both ways. Some brands like graves come with the back cut out and you leave the reed the way it is. Others are flat and you have to flip the reed over so it sits flat and then install the plates. Anyone have experience w this.

Looks like Graves is the only company anodizing the aluminum. If you plan on keeping your bike for awhile the un-anodized material will start to corrode.

Doubted. I've had a set of non-anodized plates on an old streebike for years and when I went through the bike prior to selling it, they were still pretty clean.

it depends on the alloy they used. 6061 t6 which is what these are probably made of has an excellent resistance to corrosion. it's also used for most outdoor products like railings, platforms, seats car bodies and frames. 7075 t6 which is what a lot of rearsets, brake levers and clip ons and sprockets are made of has an average resistance to corrosion and would benefit from having anodizing. 6061 doesn't need it but can be anodized.
the 6061 T6 is strong, weldable and has decent corrosion resistance.

The Driven block off plates are CNC'ed real nice too. It is a shame to cover them. Big difference in blocking off though. That's really the bread and butter.

Yeah I have a ftecu with the ais disabled and TADs tune in it, not sure if actually physically blocking the ais will make much difference with it disabled.

I couldn't say from first hand experience. But I've read that air can still sneak in and cause decel popping.

For sure it's possible. I did it to clean up the mess under the tank and save weight
