Question Cabon Fiber

Does anybody out there have any recommendations on carbon fiber parts manufactures?
Iím looking for quality carbon parts. And donít really have anything to base any judgments of quality vs. cost.

Just trying to see what people have bought and if they like the parts or notÖ..

I've got a combination of Moto Corse and MV Corse. I actually don't know where the line is as far as who's is who's. Both of them you can see on the emoto site. Both it seems to take a while to get in stock.

They are really nice. But also pretty expensive. I can't speak for the others, but compared to other carbon at the dealer (on ducati's mostly), the MV carbon looks nicer and is stiffer due to attention to build detail (like lips on the ends of fenders to help stiffness instead of just cut to shape).

With carbon a good rule is 'you get what you pay for' MV Corse is top quality, pre pregnated, autoclaved then laquered, a very well known firm that have recently dissapeared ( C arse hole i) used to sell carbon with glass fibre underneath it, by and by it was shite

Shift-Tech? I had a bad experience with them and didn't like the quality of their carbon when I ordered frame covers for my GSXR. It looked cheesy and discolored, plus they wouldn't take it back. I had to go through claims to get my money back! Wouldn't recommend them.

Steve, being in the m/c business I have dealt with many carbon companies. Probably the best I have seen is factory MV stuff. Very quality. It's not cheap by any means but worth the money. I keep tabs on MV's stock of carbon and know they just recieved an order so depending on what your looking for chances are good they will have it.

I'd love to get factory MV carbon but that stuff is just way out of my price range. And I canít justify eating Raman Noodles for the next five years trying to pay off the carbon Iím already doing that to pay for the bike.
