Carbon Fibre at reasonable prices
« on: June 22, 2016, 03:56:40 PM »
Just a heads up to anyone looking to buy carbon parts...

I enquired with my local dealer for the cost of some HP Carbon parts (hugger, front fender & fuel surround), price quoted..... over £830!!  :005: :005:

Ended up buying from a company called Zero Limit, price...... £250.00.  :152:

Arrived today, looks great and fitted perfectly.  :018:

Interested in this. Do they do the piece that sits at the front of the seat, at the bottom of the tank in carbon?

Looking at the site, they only seem to offer a front fender for the S1000RR and R. Does the same fender fit the XR?

Its the same, front end setup is identical.

I fitted both hugger and mudguard in 10 minutes.

Hi Rich,

They probably do mate, I enquired about the large side pieces (with the BMW badge) and they do those even though they aren't listed.

Give them a call, they were really helpful.

I may have to spend even more money on the bike. I've not even picked it up yet and I'm already buying new bits by the day!

Nice pics mate. It all looks really good quality, I think I'll have to place my order. Did you get the fuel surround as well?
