Hahha. Unfortunately the crack is near the bottom so no cutting will help.

I'm confused

I guess my original thread was not very clear. The word windshield is the problem, I think. The crack is in the plastic windscreen on my motorcycle. I have the Memphis Shade. Sorry 'bout that.

Valve cover

Hi guys,

I received the valve cover from VR and it looks great and fits perfectly. The color is also a perfect match.

Now I have to sell my old, slightly damaged cover.

I as well had issues with those tires. I am definitely not an aggressive rider and they lasted only about 8000kms (5000 miles). Cracking and poor wear.
