    Exhaust plastic end covers

    I'm in need of the plastic end covers for a stock exhaust, mine were missing when I got the bike, just wondering if someone had some on here they would be willing to part with, happy to pay for them, would need postage to the UK.
    Thanks Jimmy

    What bike?

    Dorso, or Shiver?

    I still have all the original plastics from my '15 Shiver, that were removed when I installed the Akras.

    Post a pick of your bike, so I can see exactly what's missing.
    You don't need to earn my respect.
    I give it freely.
    Whether or not you keep it is entirely up to you.

    That's a Dorsoduro exhaust, but it looks like it's on a Shiver? Interesting

    Not sure if the Dorso's plastic exhaust covers will fit with the Shiver's bodywork.

    What makes it a dorsoduro exhaust rather than a shiver exhaust?

    The angled / upturned, ovalised exits - the Shiver's are round with a grille around them.

    As you can see, the dressing is very different and may not work with the rest of the rear plastics.

    FWIW, I have a set of black Dorso exhaust covers. Not sure what postage would be from Arizona to where you're at, but shoot me a PM if you think they'll work.

    Had no idea that a dorsoduro exhaust had been fitted, I've got dorsoduro forks now, so the bike is about 50% dorso haha.
    Annoyingly I bought a set of shiver end covers on eBay before I read this. So will have to look for dorsoduro ones or a shiver exhaust now.
    Cheers for the Info.

    I think we've all learned something from this, keep us posted as to if they fit!

    Aren't the Dorsoduro forks really long? I had to lower my front end in the triples, so the tubes poke out a bit at the top, just to get neutral steering with correct rear preload.
    You know, I've often wondered what a Dorso swingarm would be like on a Shiver...

    I've got the entire stock exhaust from my Shiver taking up space in my garage, plastics and all.

    Probably cost a bundle to ship that boat anchor to the UK, though.

    Yeah I'm guessing it would cost a fair whack unfortunately. Thanks though

    So the shiver plastics don't fit onto my dorsoduro exhaust that is fitted to my shiver.
    Need to decide if I send them back and get dorsoduro ones or try to get a real shiver exhaust

    It has been my experience (this sort of thing happens to me a lot) that you are opening a can of worms to try to adapt something like this. Pretty soon you'll be into it more than a used Shiver exhaust. By that point, your stubbornness will have taken over, it will cost you double, but dammit you made it work!

    Like I said, this sort of thing seems to happen to me a lot.

    My advice: get a set of GPR cans and be done with it. The weight savings alone is worth it, and you can choose how many baffles you want (up to 2 per can) to get the noise level right.

    So far I'm only 50 in, so I can send the covers back and either find dorsoduro plastic covers, or get a whole shiver exhaust including covers for probably about 100. I like the sound from the exhaust that's on, and I'm not fussed about weight saving, just wanted to tidy up the look of the rear end, because it looks crap without the plastic covers on.
