Have emailed these guys a few times over the past 2 months trying to purchase their swingarm covers for a 09+.....not a single reply.

is it an act of congress to get a response from these guys?

He started a thread a few days ago:

Well, for what it's worth, I emailed Lacomoto today and received a response a few hours ago, along with a promo for the new M1 replica They currently have FREE SHIPPING to the US, Europe, and Australia on orders over 200 Euro :

I just pulled the trigger on some swingarm covers and SBK hugger in carbon

I guess this is my test run with them before the M1 replica order...

Thanks Uncle P!
