GB racing engine covers
on: February 14, 2020, 02:42:05 AM
Ok so I bought these for a good price from a forum member. For the price Im sure they are knockoffs but seem to be good quality. They had all the legit looking logos and paperwork. Its amazing how good some knockoffs are now days. They feel pretty heavy and pretty dense as far as I can tell. I did buy better quality bolts just for piece of mind and torqued to factory specs. When removing bolts for large right cover it did leak just a drip of oil so might want to install quickly on that one. After installing all and torqued bolts to spec no issue so far. Im sure that they will add some extra protection even though the real ones may be better. Main reason I bought was price and cover up the gray color for the most part.

Tighten it 'til it strips then back it off half a turn.

I saw a video of knock off engine cover on a crash. They got destroyed in so many piece and the engine got damaged.

I also saw a video of real engine cover and they absorbed the shock and protected the bike.


At this point, if I drop the bike Im calling the insurance to get new stuff. So having engine cover for me would be only estetics for road use. Track use would be another story since the insurance doesnt cover.

Surely these knock-offs have come from the production facility as the real McCoy?
Not to say they didn't cheap out on some of the vital ingredients though. 🙄

Do you have a link to that video?

How about moving this thread? 😬
