(Q&A) Magical Racing Carbon (Plain Carbon vs Twill Carbon)

Hello friends!
Im interested on buying a "Magical Racing" front fender "hugger" with fork guards. But i need to see what is the difference between "Twill Carbon" and "plain carbon".
I have some carbon parts already install on it (rear hugger and belly fairings) so i need to see which one will from the two will match better the parts installed already.
So, can some peeps get some pix of the two side by side? or what it means to have a carbon fiber "twill" vs a plain carbon?

PIX below are from a "twill" front hugger.

It looks blackish...

I have twill weave and main weave in my garage... Twill weave on the bike and plain weave on the car. Will take some pics for you.

Or if you have a pic of your already-purchased cf parts, post a picture and I can tell you which one it is..

sorry something is either wrong with my computer or with imageshack...can't seem to upload.

But yes yours is twill. It will go well with the Magical Racing twill weave (I have the windscreen in twill from Magical Racing for my 09 R1). When it's twill, you can see the lines of "direction" with the weave....when it's plain, it looks more like a "checkers board" if you will...no specific direction. Just 1x1 (or 2x2 depending on the weave size) of squares. Just FYI Magical Racing plain weave is 1x1.

My Magical Racing twill windscreen goes well with my lacomoto twill wsbk hugger and swingarm cover. I also have the front fender, wsbk vented airbox cover, tank sides, and the 1carbontech large fairing side panels all in twill...goes well together. Makes my Akra exhaust plain weave look out of place a bit...
