fake carbon fiber opinion

I was thinking about ordering this belly pan. Does this look completely fake looking to you? Do you think it is worth it? They also sell a shiny black version.

Re: fake carbon fiber opinion

If you can nab it for cheaper than a regular black one then I say go for it.....and then sand off or paint over that fake c/f stuff.

Re: fake carbon fiber opinion

If you like it....go for it. I've got a 1st gen and there is fake C/F on the dash around the gauges from the factory.

So i say again....If YOU like it go for it....it's YOUR bike.

I personally see why some people don't like fake c/f but i don't think it looks bad cuz it breaks up the solid black look without being a completely different color.

And..........does it come with the mounting brackets? Some of the bellypans from ebayland don't come with the mounting brackets. In order to install it, you would need to fabricate some. Not a showstopper, but it's extra work.
