They don't make them anymore.
Molds are done.
They do still have the o-ring gasket sets. Plenty.
I made sure of that before I left.
About a year and a half ago I saw the display cover at SJBMW and asked if they had a set. They in fact did. Chris indicated that they had gotten several sets from the powdercoater who discovered them in a box under a bench where they had been hidden for many years. I bought a set and waited while the sales guy ground off the powdercoating on the fins. The powdercoating was black gloss rather than the satin finish I think the earlier CC Products covers had. I've yet to install them. The original intent was to put them on the R100GS for their additional robustness but I decided not to since I've dropped the bike and tweaked the crashbars enough times to make removing even the stock covers a hassle. The current plan is to put them on my 83 R100RS Turbo if and when I ever get going on that project. One of my next chores is to repaint two sets of the stock black covers.
