That seat cowl sucks..... But it probably fits better then the OEM Yamaha one on the 07-08 R1s. whats up with that? why do they fit like cheap aftermarket ebay parts?

My ish fits really nice... and best of all matching paint with no blems.

Not sure what AM's you've seen first hand but definitely don't go by what you see in the ad's.

Oh ya, and that Ermax is def over kill on the 'gotta be different' dept.

Dieyoung's cowl is OEM and doesnt fit good, my 06 seat cowl sat perfectly flush, where as the 07s is kinda raised a bit, giving it the appearance to be not fully closed down. i dunno

Thanks for your views, I have not seen a 06 with a cowl so I can't comment but yes I would have prefered it a bit lower, the camera and angle makes it look a bit worse than it is.

:thumbup

I like the style but I would like a tighter fit (tight is good :boobies)

Maybe we'll soon find the perfect aftermarket cowl for the R1 that would fit and would enhance and compliment the lines.

Cool.... Yeah you know what, im sure with some tweaking you can make it fit better. I bet shaving some plastic here and there, and it will sit lower and further back.

all im saying is from Yamaha i expected better fitment. Check it out on my 06

That is a nice and tight fit you got on your bike (I like the mouse trap in the bottom left corner - nice big chunk of cheese :hammer: "lucky" mouse.

The cowl is still very new, think I removed it once, so I'll do a bit of plastic surgery and looks a bit rugged on the inside. I also think :fork could have done a better job with the OEM.

Thanks for the advice.

Hahaha you like that mousetrap huh? Yeah well I like to clean my car and my bike late at night before I go in and I keep the garage door open all the time in the summer, so I had a few experiences with field mice running into the garage so I keep that mousetrap there all summer just incase one of those field mice snuck inside and is roaming around looking for food :bash

Thanx for the replies guys! Thought as much the Ermax is over the top and @ $200 Au still a rip off. The 06 OEM does fit awesome hey and looks great on the anniversary model! Shame the 07 fits crap, its same gap as the standard seat.....check out mine....lol.
