I've never understood the benefit of this. Does it really shave enough weight to be worth it or is it mostly just racer bling?

I think they look excellent I just never knew if there was much of a performance gain...

Billet, lightweight, strong and sexy...why not?

Stock cast pieces look cheap, sure it's a bit of bling but it's a functional bit of bling...I think I would install this piece before an undertail, the bike will still handle without an undertail but it won't without a top clamp.

Oh ya I gotta go get and install my Cycle Cat top clamp...

I wasn't implying they were too much or something. Just asking in case there was a really great performance benefit in someway. I think they look killer and the main reason I was asking was so I could justify buying one myself...

No worries bro neither was I...performance wise umm probably not so much. But you are right they do look wicked.

Also if Makis is recommending/commenting on something I tend to listen. ;)

I have one and I really like it. Yes, it's (black) bling, but it's cool.



Spring is finally here!!!

Just got back from a quick ride home on the SP2 after taking it out this afternoon to run some erands in town then catch up with a close friend who just got back to Japan yesterday. Man, I love my RC51. It's got so much character and sweeet handling.
Happy day. :D

Stig please pm me the details of your brake fluid reservoir. I see a different cup with some sort of mounting bracket that attaches to the top clamp?
Just what I've been looking for.

The Tyga upper clamp is heavier than OEM.
The Cycle Cat upper clamp I used to have was heavier also.
But both pieces do seem more durable than OEM by far.

Hey Stig, that's a great picture of the instrument panal lit up. It's all oem. And that upper clamp is nothing but sweet titties! :D

except the cf cover - just caught that.

Thanks Jondog9 - I like the MR cf cover too. It compliments the cf snorkel and as I have all the MR cf bits, I wanted this on it.

Yep, I do - the previous owner put them on :)
They've held up great over 7 years of use. I think the glass may be wide angle, as they're fairly good for purpose. I still need to tuck my elbows in to check behind me but I can't fault the quality of these.
