I have them and I've had similar on my 955 Tiger which has just rolled over 40,000 and they work really well some folk get a little bit snobby at the thought of using zip ties but it's never bothered me.

I have the same on my S1000xr but with out the BMW logo on I used locking wire to fix them as I did not fancy the zip ties, they fitted nicely a bit of pushing and pulling to get them just right but a cup of tea and half an hour 20 minutes of which was cleaning the rad's.

 
After over thirty + years behind the bars, there's still lots to do and see.

I had them on my KTM SDR and have them on my Tuono 1100 Factory.  They work very well and at a good price.

Thanks for the replies gents!! :002:

I was looking at the price of them and thinking why they were so much cheaper than R & G and Evotech products, but it is good to see plenty of owner experience out there. I don't mind using cable ties either :002:
