Cheaper option for Carbon Fiber seat cowl. FOUND

Well, after searching forever I was able to find a CF seat cowl for the bike that does not cost a fortune. I had to do some modifications for it to fit how I want but overall, I'm happy with it. I had to open up the holes for the lock cylinder a little, get my own hardware for 2 of the bolts, used the factory bracket (more ridged), and used a couple pieces of foam to reduce rubbing on the tail plastic. Anyway, here are the pics:

I got it from Flink carbon He said normally they dont do single orders, but I was able to get one.. Might have to setup a group buy for best results.. Depending on location, prices should be around $100-$150

Seat cow

At $150 it needs to come with all the required hardware to just add lock and drop in. If so I'm in for one too.

The only piece I bought that needed that much work to fit were made in China.
