All plastic pieces, and i only ran into fit with the wire harness covers and those were from MV If you are thinking about starting, let me warn you, and others here can attest to this, buying carbon is a disease, once you start you just can't stop!! Once you do, your bike will look great, but your wallet won't!!

Ah, who am i to say don't it's your bike, just watch out for those harness covers.

Get busy livin, or get busy dyin

You live more in 5 minutes on a bike like this, going
flat out, than most people live in a lifetime.

So far:

Tail/Seat Unit
Licence plate holder
Upper and lower chainguards
Exhaust shield
Heel plates
Side panels
Key surround
Hugger
Front Fender

I don't even want to think what it's cost me, I just buy a bit every now and again.

John, when polishing a car you should always start with the hard bits, like the roof and bonnet (hood for our USA freinds) like wise with Carbon always start with the expensive bits...............THE AIRTUBES!!!!!!!!

Airtubes, elec covers, front fender, air dam, key thingy, eyebrows, exhaust upper heat sheild, seat unit, hugger, rear plate hanger, upper/lower chainguard, rad surround, they are all MVSP except rad cover and air dam (lieb), the only trouble I had was with the elec covers, I needed to machine the haeds of the two allen bolts down a little as there was a slight miss-alignment
