What brand are those head covers, Rich?

Mine are very similar but I ended up having to fit the alloy cup washers under them rather than the far better option of on top. This was due to the sound of cracking and splintering carbon fibre as the bolts approached the desired tightening torque (which ain't high) - seems the moulding is a bit of a tight fit for the contact area of the cup washers and rubber inserts. The result is that it doesn't look as tidy and the covers stand off a few mil - the depth of the washers. Yours appear to be fitted as intended and look pretty good. Though, if you haven't sussed it already, it's a PITA having to slacken the head cover bolts every time to allow access to the main stick coils and spark plugs :roll:

Cheers.

Mike
Can you post a pic of your head covers - I had the same problem as you and in the end fitted Ilmberger covers (which weren't exactly the best fit either) but my mate is going to try and fit them to an RT. Would be good to see how they look
