wot carbon?

Hi all,
Just bought a F4 312R, Need some advice from the more experienced. I currently cannot ride bike at the moment due to roads in england being covered in snow and ice. So I thought I would start looking for some "bling" for my bike, which company makes the best carbon fibre for MV's??, initially looking for a carbon hugger, also, any ideas on roughly how much I should be paying??
Cheers
Sean......

I would get the MV Corse stuff if you can snag it.

Funny, I'm looking for some carbon bits myself; the problem for me is that the AGO has some pieces as standard' and I need the same weave to match. The genuine kit is lovely but expensive! Anybody found a suitable alternative?

The older I get, the faster I was!

Well if your budget does not allow you to buy the Corse stuff Carbonworld.de out of Germany makes some really Awesome Quality parts at a decent but competitive price. Also you can take 19% off the price due to their VAT taxes that we dont have to pay (we meaning in the US) not sure if all Euro folks have to pay that tax. I have all my Carbon from them and very very happy with the quality and even the packing to ship to me was really good.

Idd , those guys at carbonworld.de gave me great service the last weeks.Got air rams,exhaust and oil reservoir covers from , all nice carbon.Very fast delivery.But the best bling for your bike is BST wheels , thats low weight and GREAT handling in one , best mod to do

Not to knock this thread but Carbon Wheels are the SHIT! but best Mod to do for bling for sure. For performance Eh? Depends on what application you are gonna use it for. But $3500USD for wheels you could cover your bike in Carbon.

Strange , fast bikes magazine , says that for any sports bike the best mod you can do is buy Bst wheels.
I drive now 20 years motorbikes , had more then 50 different ones and i find the handling greatly improved with those wheels

Greny, I think wa2fst meant they are great. He said the wheels were the shit, not are shit. A friend put BSt rims on his GXSR 1000 that is way modded and he also said the BST's are great.
