Wowww it looks so good. I might have to consider the white carbon if I want to keep mine white

Yes I am so far, I like the looks a bit more over stock black headlight and grey fender as well.
I thought your tank had a checkered flag decal for a minute, it looks cool!

Recieved my carbon yesterday. Set a couple pieces in place for now for viewing pleasure. No time to install at the moment :D View attachment 213469 View attachment 213470
Nice!

Question: Are the MFG logos cleared in, or could they theoretically be removed?

I’m all for giving a MFG proper credit where credit is due, but with body panels/fenders (plastics), I don’t care to be a billboard, especially if the MFG logo colors clash with the color scheme of my bike.

(I’d gladly tell anyone who asked @ the gas station, who made my kick ass plastics).

Cool. Thanks.

Btw, maybe a minor nit, but it looks from your photos like Maier chose to put the opening for the cowling mount grommet @ the 9 o’clock pos’n, instead of @ OEM 12 o’clock pos’n. (?)

That matters, by design, especially for those who want to use a Jimbo shield.

If the mounting tab gap is open to the back of the bike, even with the lower cowling mount bolt installed, the cowling will be far less locked into place than the Yamaha OE front cowling design.

The OE tab gap @ 12 o’clock & the lower mounting bolt work in concert to isolate any movement out of installed position.

With the gap open to the back of the bike, the cowl is more prone to easily pushing forward off the mount posts, if any type of light bump were applied to the back/top of the cowl toward the front of the bike.

Japanese design & engineering have intent. Details matter.

There are easy fixes for that, fortunately, because well, unless they’re cutting that gap post production, into a solid molded mounting ring tab (& could change location of the cuts), the molds are already made.

But, if Maier is watching this thread & it’s feasible, please consider correcting this seemingly minor, but significant design detail back to OE.

Wouldn’t stop me from buying. They do look great!

In South America can hear this color referred to as "Panty Blue".
Electric Blue sure sounds and looks cool but Panty Blue is forever locked into my Abby Normal brain.
