Very easy to fit Simon, Just remove seat , release the one screw, grip either side of cover and pull rearwards,
Remove the two spring clips and the two rubber buffers , transfer to the new cover,
Grip carbon cover and slide into place, refit the one screw and the seat,
Job done took me about 20 mins,

Wow. looking good. I am thinking about replacing the 2 tankparts also. The originals do scratch so easily and become ugly.
Only is the price of the Ilmberger stuff a bit steep. But ... IT LOOKS GREAT! Good job!

Nice one thanks for the info. I was thinking of fitting one myself as I like small amounts of carbon in the right place and I think this would go well with my front mudguard.
IMO Illemberger are the best and the only carbon I will fit.

Yes like Simon says, But I ordered from their E Bay site, £231free post and packing, and collected from my local Argos Store, Find this a lot easier than waiting in for the post to arrive,
