GB Racing covers....

I noticed these are finally available for our bikes. Dont be fooled by that link from "solomoto" They have the "ninja 1000"covers/guards listed, but their part number matches up to the 2011 zx10r. They have been screwed up for at least 5 years....


I ordered mine direct from GB. I ordered them on sunday and they are arriving tomorrow, so the shipping is fast. Figure @ 225.00, including shipping, for the full kit (3 pieces)...and expect my current RG racing guards to be up for sale really soon.

A Facebook group member is in the UK and apparently had a hand in these coming to fruition. Of course they came out just a couple weeks after I installed the R&G ones. The GBs look much better. That said, I really wish Woodcraft made covers for our bikes. They are bombroof in comparison to any of these plastic covers.

I've been asking for them since about 2012., too. I wonder, are these REALLY for our bikes, or do these match the z900? I have the rg's, too, but...I've sent gb so many e mails they are the ones who sent m an email with the announcement. I felt obligated to order them

If so, that might make sense since it fits so many different bikes where before it was the z or versys....not much else?

The gb covers arrived, and they look really good. Having said that, I don't think they are a huge improvement over the rg covers. The th set does have the small cover, on the right side of the bike and the rg does not. Probably no big deal. If that ever hit, your so screwed it really does not matter.

This set does have "z1000sx" molded into the plastic, so its not as if it was designed for the other bikes. Overall, I'm pleased. If these score an 8, I'd have to give the rg a 7...Damn good, just not up to this level.

I'm probably too stupid to do the Facebook thing, but I'll pm you as soon as I make the switch.
