I had them custom made from a place in Glendale, Az Custom Prices. A guy on Honda Motorcycles sent me a message after i posted in the wanted section of those forums saying he could make them for me. So I went with it, ended up taking a little over two months after I was originally told roughly 3 weeks. Apparently he was having issues with the clear coat turning out nicely. The communication could have been better seeing the only time i heard about what was going on was after I would email them. Which got frustrating as weeks would go by after hearing they thought they'd be shipping the next day and they never showed up. They turned out pretty awesome in the end and I am happy with them.

Thanks for the info! Are they actual replacement covers that don't go over the stock ram air covers? From the looks of it, it looks like a full replacement. If you don't mind, how much did it cost you?

Thanks, the levers are just cheap ebay knock offs. build quality is real solid, but they faded really fast.

they are a full replacement. What he did was lay carbon fiber over a set of stock ram air covers. Came just shy of $250 shipped.

Did he actually clear coat that, or did he get the carbon fiber from 3M that comes shiny? I'm trying to figure that out because my friend does tint work and uses carbon fiber and he said I couldn't clear coat normal carbon fiber. It looks awesome!
