    Hi members,

    We will be making a large amount of parts for honda's starting next week and wondered your preference on carbon weave?

    Please see this link and click on "how our carbon is made" Faq

    We are able to provide "plain weave" & "twill weave" as there are so many parts to make we would like to find out which maybe the most popular, so who else better to ask than owners like your good selves.

    Your feedback will be invaluable to us.

    Kind regards and safe riding

    Steve AKA CC

    After looking on your site, I would prefer your Plain weave although the twill also looks good.
    I'll be keeping a close eye on your Honda parts as I'm sure most will be.......

    Cheers,
    Des.

    I'm not a big fan either, like my bits painted or plain black/sliver

    Thanks for the feedback lads,

    So it's 50/50 at the moment. Eventually we will stock both weaves so please stay tuned or subscribe to our new news letter on the bottom right hand side of our site. http://conquestcarbon.co.uk/

    Both look nice IMO, but twill would be what I would order

    Looking at the two options, if I were to buy some - I would definitely go for Twill tbh...

    Prefer plain.

    Sometimes, when two twill parts are placed side by side, if the direction of the weaves are completely opposite or dont match then it can look odd IMO

    Hi Jamie,

    Yes we do make the side infill panels for that year. They are £139.95 before members discount :D

    That is a good point, if you are going to give your bike the full carbon treatment then I would agree with Ahmed, plain weave would be best. Small parts not too much of an issue so long as they are not side by side.

    You fancy making some tail scuff guards for an 07? Otherwise known as crash covers for the corners of the rear tail near the vents on the 07?

    Hi arthurbikemad,

    To be honest we have made side protectors for the Panigale and MV F4 but had little sales so we haven't made any for other makes. R&G do quite a lot of these and seem to sell a lot?

    If there were enough orders i.e group buy then yes we would definitely go ahead. We always make side protectors from either plain/twill weave and carbon kevlar.

    Regards

    It looks even better in the flesh. It's massively popular with the RSV4 & KTM RC8 owners

    Will you be doing frame and swing arm covers? I would be interested in a price for 05
