carbon parts

Now that Winter is here, at least in Green Bay, WI it's time to spruce up the new mv1000. Mostly with carbon. Can anybody inform me of any differences from the many suppliers that are available? Casoli looks to be expensive, while QB Carbon is much cheaper. The Special Parts division is up there to, then the rest are pretty much in the middle. Of course quality is very important to me. Any opinions based from experience would be great.

I am in the same position as you, bike a couple of months old, and wanting to add some quality bits, and have.
I spent a bit of time comparing carbon parts from different suppliers, and the price variation is simply down to quality. And by quality I am referring to the visual aspect.
Now I am not a structural engineer, so the strength value of the parts is of no real value, but the visual component is, and the difference between suppliers is huge.
Also dont buy unseen of the net, you can't guage the appearance this way.

For my part I bought from MV Special parts, simply because of the fit and I don't want to be wishing I had bought the best quality each time I look at my bike!

Thanks for the input. I'll more than likely just keep it simple and stick with MV SP. I know the quality and appearance are top notch judging by the Ago I was drooling all over. Now the difficult part is the exhaust. RG 3, Sil Motor, or Moto Corse. It's never ending. I'm beginning to think just getting my hands on an Ago or even the MT will actually save money.
