    Looking to buy, or trade for:

    Black "Headlight Cowling".

    My bike is a 2014 (blue) but I'm switching out to black.

    Or...if you have a black one and want to trade for blue...I'm your man!

    Must be in good condition.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Might consider painting yours. Rattle can paints for plastic are not too expensive and easy to apply. Good luck with your project.

    Hi Fred, finally getting back on the Cowling.

    I can't really say mine is "Mint" but I can say it is in "Excellent", maybe even "Excellent Plus" condition. No scratches or anything.
    But there is one thing that could be a problem for you.

    One of the things I always do with a new bike is remove the DOT side reflectors, front & rear. They are too big, too ugly and I hate 'em!
    But I am not totally anti-safety so I do this. I replace them with 1" diameter license plate reflectors on the front of the bike, but not in the original location.

    Here's my bike, totally OE:


    Same bike with the small reflectors mounted on cowling:



    If we do this, I'll leave small reflectors in place and also include a couple of small plastic snap-in plugs to "hide" the holes, if you don't like the reflectors.
    The graphics stickers are also removed.

    I don't know what shipping would be but I will pay to ship mine, and send you $12 or so towards shipping yours.

    Waddaya think?

    ok thanks for the pics I was hoping to find a stock cowl with decals but I ended up putting a 2016 tank and cowl on my TW which will get me by until I can find another 14 tank and cowl

    I wish they included the decals when ordering new cowls but I just checked partzilla and 2014 and 2016 blue cowls are very cheap like $13 to $15 and decals for some years are $15 while others are $30 makes no sense

    Black cowls are still expensive at $40 but when the 2018 parts get listed they might be cheaper

    Fred, I haven't been able to find a black one at any price! Where did you get yours?
    I think you said you have a couple of black ones left...want to help a brutha out and sell me one?

    Partzilla has the black for $44.04 plus shipping but they don't gouge on shipping

    https://www.partzilla.com/product/ya...145129f5bc45f9

    I have 2 new black ones but it seems like every TW I get needs a cowl it seems to be the contact point anytime a TW falls down

    I bought them both new from Partzilla so I probably have $50 into them

    Once the 2018 parts get listed (due any day now) the black cowls should be much cheaper like $12 to $15 if they are anything like the blue 14 - 16-17 cowls

    I could spare one I just ordered 20 of the 14 -16 blue cowls and right now I'm not seeing as many 2005's as I did a few years ago

    darn things are kind of big to mail so they would need a medium flat rate box at $12 and change

    Check Partzilla and if you need any other misc TW parts they offer free shipping at $150

    Thanks Fred.
    What do you do with all the TW parts?
    Are you a rebuilder or...?
