    How much for something like this https://www.satoracing.com/cbr1000rr09_ABS_streethooks.htm ?
    I was looking for a pair of sato racing..but I can't find any in the uk..only found 1 and it was for non-abs version...Really need to do something about putting the pegs on and off easier..and this is the solution...but with them being 150 plus u have to pay import taxes...no thanks.

    yeah I just can’t seem to get my hands on 1 of them...seen 1 yesterday for 28£ and I was happy untill I found out that as expected they are for non abs and for some reason they don’t work on abs models.

    Ive got another one for you. Front sprocket cover is a pain to remove for cleaning. Searched for ages and ordered a carbon one from spain (hasnt arrived yet). Fairly sure they would be a popular choice if you could replicate them.

    I got one of these.... doesnt fit at all!! Not even close, was well annoyed plus the nice part of the carbon you dont really see. You see more of the inside which not shiny and that. I got mine from USA site www.lockhartphillipsusa.com/ which some reason i cant get on now but seemed big company. I saw the spanish ones on ebay, come from china i think. Let me no how you get on. I may just run without one at al!

    Ideal for a nice aluminium one ;)

    Yeah prob. I wanted one to protect the hoses etc but show the sprocket. The Taylor made one would fit but then $200 and then to cut it. Not good. Mine cost me around £60-70 quid can’t even return it :( I can’t even mount mine that’s how bad it lines up

    I tried to buy one from america, it may have been the same company but they messaged to say they were out of stock and refunded me.

    Camt imagine the chinese ones will be any better!

    Hi mate......do you think you are able to do these chain guards? I think there is already a few that want one and I'm sure lot's more would be interested. You could make a killing!!!

    If ColinBR can do it ......so can you ;)

    Haha Paulo. I’m working on it. I’m trying to get hold of one to reverse engineer it to give a guide of how much work would be involved. It’s not a question of if I could do it; it’s easier to copy a similar part so there are no doubts about fitment. I’ve gone into things in the past that didn’t fit everything I thought it would so had To rework. Last thing I want to do is send something out I’m not happy with and ultimately you aren’t.

    Any ideas where I can buy/borrow one?

    No Idea where to get one from so you could copy the design......they seem to be like rocking horse shite!!

    That's why I'm sure you'd be onto a winner if you came up with the goods!! ;)
