I just saw these in the new Italianbike mag and am wondering if anyone has seen these in person. They look pretty cool in the ads, but I cant tell much about fit, quality, etc.

I just ordered some clear covers from spareshack this morning. We'll see how they look when they're installed. I think it will give the bike an aggressive unique look, we'll see...

Thanks for the link, Mary. They have a great price posted, too.

Those are really cool! I've always liked the look of the belts exposed, but never wanted to subject mine to all the grit and road spoo that seems to sandblast the leading edges of the engine side covers and footpeg brackets.

Just when I thought my wallet was safe from another purely aesthetic mod.... ::)

The Rizomas aren't bad, but I'm thinking the smoked look will fit into my Darker theme a little better. GBA, the land where we have the freedom to choose on what we spend our decadent disposable incomes ;)

How long does it take to have the inside of the covers all full of sh!t? Seems like they would need to be cleaned all the time.

I pulled the gray covers off after 5000 miles just to take a look at the belts and there was only a little bit of dust accumulated. If the clears seal as well as stock I don't think dirt on the inside will be to much of an issue. I hope.

I love the Rizomas, but I think they would look better with the glass slightly tinted. Not black, but tinted. Although down the road, I can see painting the glass black when it is old and cratched.

You can get replacement plexiglass for those... doesn't tinting them or painting them black sort of defeat the intended purpose?

I was wondering how the Rizomas would look in black anodized aluminum instead of silver.

Yes it would defeat the original purpose. But would look cool when you got tired of it later on down the road.

Hi all, I make these covers, and even tho i say it myself !!
they are really cool, haven't gotten shitty inside in 8500 miles have no appreciable scratches or blemishes.
It has take me 12 months of head scratching and expense to produce these from the ground up. Also, with the price of carbon covers and the Rizoma ones I believe these are a steal at
