I had a sporttech v-flow carbon and had to send it back. It did'nt fit 100%, you had to excessivly bend to round out for all holes to fit. And the bottom of the wind screen was not flush with the front fairing. Just thought if Im ever caught in the rain which will happen. Water will have an easy trail to the controls and odometer. Got the puig carbon and the fit was much better. It fits flush and a couple milimeter's thicker. It does'nt allow as much room under the screen as the sporttech. But unless you have a 3x helmet the puig should clear enough.

Cool... at least you won't have to go thru the frustration I did.
Check the Black Mask thread he has the same Carbon Fiber Puig I just got.
Just a hint the carbon is a circle verticle shape, unlike the usual diamond diagenal weave
With your bike, may be better with the black. But 2 each his own, good luck.

Just put on the Sporttech Black Chrome....the fit was actually really good. there was minimal gaps anywhere around it and it fit nice and snug. Looks really good up against the yellow too!!! Definetly worth every penny :thumbsup:


...the pics dont really show it off too well. But this black chrome is very shiny and reflective!! I can see myself in it (its like a mirror)

Man, that looks really good! It looks like the stock height OEM direct replacement and not the V-flow (double bubble style). I wonder if the gap issue is more so with the V-flow series? Thanks for the pics!

Looks good I guess the OEM fit is better than the V-Flow.
Thanks / Now we know which sportech products works the best!:th_salute:
