    I think the price is in AUD so it's about 60 bucks US

    Yes Aviator, I have one for my Falco and it looks as good as it works. Arrived promptly as well.

    Cheers from Sydney Australia.

    PS. I have had trouble though getting an RSV Carbon Guard for the Falco, from them, and had to cancel my order. Take this as you wish.

    :(


    I hope your's fits better than mine does, mine doesn't fit worth a damn.

    with the bottom straight, and the gap around the gas fill straight the right and left sides are crooked, and it leaves a 1/4 inch void between the carbon and the tank. Not at all pleased with the fit.

    oh


    you can also see where it's started to crack from trying to push it around and make it actually FIT against the tank. Really sorry I spent $75 on this, could have been spent much better elsewhere.

    allthough they did write back and said it might be the wrong one, so I'm mailing it back to australia, hopefully they'll figure out whats up.

    carbon


    I purchased an ART cabon fiber tank guard. I did not like the way it fits. So I took it off and gave it to another fellow RSV rider. He loves it. I guess it matters how picky you are.

    Re: ART


    for future reference it costs about $24 US to mail a one pound package to australia. Yet another 24$ I'll never see again.

    Sorry to see such a shoddy product. But mine fitted perfectly.

    Fittment ?


    I found I had to use mine for a couple of weeks then it stuck quite well without problems.

    Sorry to hear your not happy.

    further update, I mailed off the protector last week and it's there already (it takes less time to get a package to australia via mail than it does florida, go figure) they're going to fit it on a falco and see what the deal is, they might redeem themselves yet.

    what is that grey material?

    the protector looks like faux carbon fiber over a spongy adhesive. is that what it is made of?

    gray material? that silver is the tank on my bike and the black is the cutouts on the sides of the tank.
    it's real CF, just not shaped very well
