Q: Where is my order and/or how long will it take?
A: Please visit our Info/Terms page at the top of the website.
Q: Are your products clear coated?
A: NO, we used to clear coat our products before we were able to get our molds perfected, but that added additional cost & time. We've since been able to get our molds to the point where products are pulled from the mold and lightly wet sanded, chemically treated, and then buffed. This process reduces cost/time and also produces an A+ quality finish without clear coating. You can have your products clear coated once received, as any local painter could take on that task.
Q: Why do I see a "line" through the product?
A: Most of our larger products (tail sections) and some of our smaller products will have what appears to be a "line" in the product. This is what we call a "parting line" and it's where the mold itself is bolted together. This is necessary for all products that would otherwise have no way to release the product after production.
Q: What happens when my package was destroyed during the process of shipping.
A: Send us an email with pictures of your damaged part, the damaged box, and we will do the rest.
Q: Does the Gen 3 Front Fender come with any hardware?
A: No, the Gen 3 Front Fender does not come with any hardware.
Q: Do we have an 07/08 GSXR Front Fender?
A: We don’t but we have the 05/06 Front Fender that will fit right up to an 07/08.
Q: Do we sell LED’s separately for Headlights and Taillights?
A: Yes, we do! Shop LEDS
Q: Can the GSXR extended tail fit on the stock subframe?
A: No. only fits up to an aftermarket subframe or our subframe.
Q: Do all the complete tanks that we make use the stock pumps?
A: Yes, your stock pump will bolt up directly to our fuel tanks.
Q: Do we have any support for the seat cowl?
A: We do not make braces or seat supports for the seat cowl, but it is recommended to have one with our seat cowl.
Q: What tire sizes do we use to fit all of our front fenders?
Q: Do we sell actual motorcycle parts?
A: No, we just sell Carbon Fiber motorcycle aftermarket parts.
Q: Hugger & Chainguard Mounting?
A: When mounting our tire hugger it is recommended to mount the bracket on top of the chain guard and on the outside of the hugger (see picture). This should give you proper tire clearance. If additional clearance is needed, you may need to slide your chain guard forwards or backwards to change the height.
Q: What is carbon fiber and how is it made?
A: Carbon fiber is a polymer which is a form of a graphite. Graphite is a form of pure carbon. Hence carbon fiber is literally a fiber made of carbon. The most common raw material (precursor) of carbon fiber is polyacrylonitrile. Precursors go through several processes than include stretching, oxidation to raise melting temperature and carbonization in high temperature furnaces that vaporize about 50 percent of the material, making it nearly 100 percent carbon.
Q: What are the key advantages of carbon fiber?
A: Carbon fiber is 5 times lighter than steel but 10 times stronger than steel. Carbon fiber is much tougher than steel and plastic and has longer life and wear and abrasion resistance. Unlike steel, carbon fiber is highly resistant to oxidation and non-corrosive. Carbon fiber can be easily molded in complex and intricate shapes, high fatigue resistance and high stiffness.
Q: How do carbon fiber components affect the ride quality and handling?
A: Carbon fiber has excellent strength to weight ratio which provides ample scope to designers to reduce the total weight of the motorcycle resulting in improvement of the overall handling of the motorcycle. Carbon fiber also has excellent vibration damping which results in lower vibrations and noise, improving the overall feel and ride quality of the motorcycle.
Q: How does carbon fiber improves the look of motorcycle?
A: Carbon fiber components have excellent fit and finish and they have high wear and abrasion resistance. Hence they maintain the original look and finish for a much longer period of time in comparison to steel and plastic stock components. Carbon fiber is non-corrosive unlike steel components.
Q: Why is carbon fiber safer than steel or plastic?
A: Carbon fiber has high heat tolerances and resistance and has flexible thermal and electrical properties. Carbon fiber components are non-flammable and can be deployed in areas prone to high heat, flames and sparks. Carbon fiber absorbs impact energy by repeated failure of the material whereby the composite structure is broken into tiny pieces when accidental crash occurs. Structure can be designed to dissipate and re-direct the crash forces making it safer for the driver, passenger and pedestrian.
Q: How is the future of carbon fiber motorcycle components?
A: Carbon fiber is widely used in Formula1 cars, aircrafts, aerospace, sports equipment, marine application, etc. Carbon fiber is also commonly used in motorcycle components like headlight surrounds, fenders, fuel tank covers, fairings, chain covers, etc. However, companies like BMW and Ducati have introduced motorcycles with carbon fiber chassis and the steel bastion in frames and chassis has finally been intruded by carbon fiber. With numerous benefits of carbon fiber and continuous research and developments, the future looks exciting for more practical applications in motorcycle components.
