Seat Cowl (possible supplier)

Post  Cheshirecat on Fri Feb 01 2013, 17:25

Ok so I've ordered a Fairing set from Ebay (from China) and this company also make seat cowls for most bikes apart from the Thundercat..... So I messaged them asking if they could produce them and their reply was yes, I'm waiting for a price from them but I think If those interested placed a bulk order it might work out pretty cheap. So just wondered if anyone else is interested and how much would you be willing to pay?

I'm going to ask them to send me one to try but it might take to arrive etc I'll post pics and more details as and when it arrives.

Thanks for reading

I would be interested. As for the cost i havent got a clue depends if they came painted or not. If they could produce rear huggers with chain guards incorporated that would be awesome. Especially if they can do carbon

I know there different I meant if they can produce rear seat cowls maybe they could produce rear huggers as these don't come with the fairing kits

I would be interested in a cowl if the quality is o.k. Fairings cost is reasonable, so if they could come around £50 or less it could be a bargain. Keep us informed please. Smile

Intobikes - £77 BFP or £108.55 in various colours [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
FastBikeBits - £89.99 in BFP, white or carbon look [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Pyramid Plastics £108.55 any colour [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

You can always keep checking on eBay as the come up quite often but there's none on at the moment.

Alternatively you could read the thread and see that Cheshirecat is trying to gauge opinion on how many people might want one as he may be able to get a good price for a bulk purchase.

Black and white, I do hope this is plain enough or do can I do anything else?

Oh and by the way this [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] is called The Googles and its where I, and most other people do their research!!

Does anyone actually have one of these aftermarket cowls or had one previously?
No I dont want to buy it from them!! but I would be interested in the fit and how it fits, especially the fwd edge.

I have one on mine, fits nice although the guy who put in on used screws through the seat I think,
The pic on the right )))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
in my avatar shows my bike with the cowl on, personally I think it looks the BIZ, huge improvement to any Cat, but then it is my bike and mine is the best, as everyone would probably agree they feel their bike is the best lol
Get one anyway, if you dont like it, someone will buy it off you

Hope this answers a bit of your question

i got one from [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] the cowl fitted well, the only thing that let it down was the brackets that screw in underneath the seat were not quite bent to the right shape. Nothing a big old hammer wouldn't sort out Very Happy

Thanks for the links guys
The powerbronze cowl seems reasonable at £60.
although I would have to get it colour matched to the red of the fairings. Anyone take a guess at how much this may cost?

In fact it's my fault I should have known better, forget about it, no problem anytime, I'll be over here at the edge of my seat twidling my thumbs awaiting the next problem that cant be searched for singlehandedly
