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, I’ve still not done it all or seen it all.

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:
