    Morning,
    I got the Oxford Aquatex Medium Motorcycle Cover (CV202) for mine and it fits perfectly. I can't rate it yet but it is extremely light and might be prone to flapping in any wind but I am only using it in the garage to keep any dust and the like off the bike. If i was keeping it outside all year I would think something heavier would be needed??? It was £23 from Ghostbikes online.

    I've had the Oxford Aquatex for quite a few years now, used it for trips away and it keeps bike dry. Seems excellent quality. Never kept a bike outside so not sure if you'd need a heavier duty one for winter?!?

    +2 for the Oxford ones. Sadly my blade has to live outside at my house (for now, I'm working on a kitchen storage option!). I had my 600 under this cover for 3 years, and now the blade. Been great - no water gets through, good fit for a sportsbike (not too much flappage). It's just starting to give up the ghost in places - couple of tears around the footpegs and the holes through which you pass a locking chain.

    My only gripe with it is that it seems to attract the local stray cats which spray all over it - fuggin reeks! Still, i suppose its a theft deterrent

    There's a thread called "Best bike cover" with excellent info. I can't paste link from my phone but it should come up in the search box. You'll see pics of my 'free' mattress plastic. :D

    I got an Oxford Stormex cover from Revzilla for about $80. I got the Large and it is too big for the Repsol, but it only goes over the bike in the winter, in my garage. I don't leave my bikes outside. So really, I am no help here mate.

    Just a +1 for the Oxford.

    I've got a Stormex too. The tape on the seams are rubbish because they unstick, but it's waterproof despite. My bike's outside 24/7/365. Good quality cover is the Stormex.

    Never had an issue with the seams, but mine only goes on in the garage as a dust cover more than anything else.

    Right so I have got to get a stormtex
    And are we all agreed on a medium?
    My bike is under a part cover like a carport but if the wind is strong it does blow the rain in sometimes:(
    Thanks for everyone’s help:)

    I've just checked mine bazza but can't find the size on it....I think it said Sportsbike size on the package front?!? Here's a link to it and the sizing is there.

    https://www.sportsbikeshop.co.uk/motorcycle_parts/content_prod/325771

    Although the newer aquatex seem to have more sizes.
    Think mine was medium...loads of room underneath for other covers etc if needed.
    I got the sportsbike size in the black indoor cover too and it's well tight...should have gone up a size in that if anyone else is looking at that type!

    It's a camouflage cover and so can't be seen except for the lettering ;)
