** Frame Covers Installed **

Installed the frame covers. They look good but I am not doing back flips. The fit is less than perfect it seems like they are for a 2007 frame and not a 2008. I didn't think there was a difference. They have a bow to them that I had to use 2 sided tape to help but it is not glove tight. They will not come off or blow off tested that in high triple digits :whistle:

I think the chrome could look a little more like real chrome like my plastic chain guard that is chromed. It looks like a piece of metal chromed. Maybe there is a better brand out there but I paid $ 300.00 for these. They should be around $ 200.00 if you want my opinion.

Anyhow here they are on the bike.

I have raised the rear 2 inch up. I like the look of the GSXR1000 raised tail. The bike turns in so much better than when it was level.

+1. I like the raised look and handling, too! I've got 1" up on my Gen 1. How'd you lift it two inches, dogbones? If so, where'd you get them? Sorry, just curious.

I think that the Frame Covers look great!:thumbsup::beerchug:

Man they both look good! I was trying to go black though. I know they have black but i am still leary about it not fitting correct and looking like a piss poor job. Were they hard to install? and modifacations you had to do to the plastic?

My covers went on Perfect! I added extra double sided auto body trim tape.(the gray kind) just to be sure. They fit perfect with NO modifications of any kind.

Installed them on my 08 orange busa and the summer came here in so calif and the sun warped them and started to come off i took them off and put them in the trash they don't even come close to chrome lqqking. Don't waste your money on them everyone says there good but i have other buddies who bought them also and they trashed there also a waste of money don't buy them give your busa something that will last like some nice mirrors anything but palstic:rulez:
