I dunno, 41 for an official suzuki one isn't bad. Okay, it only cost them a couple of quid to make, but that's true of a lot of fairing. Compared to the cost of some seat cowl for other bikes I think it's pretty reasonable.

Don't touch powerbronze, I saw them at the show & the colour match on their display YC2 bike was terrible!

The official one for a 2000 is 76 according to the website. The K3- is a bit cheaper at 42

The classic SV cowls(Suzuki) cost almost double that. Another proof that the new K3 onwards were not as well built

Ah, true but mainly because of their superior build/craftmanship

Is it true that they are cheaper because they just use wedges of old cheese on the mark 2 bikes? Check out ebay as they always seem to have sv cowls for sale.
