The fit is initially quite poor, until they meld (?) into place.
The gas caps don't really fit well and they screw on kinda wonky sometimes.
....then there's the deal that the two keys for these caps don't match, if you must lock them.
They really should not be worth $1600/pr, but no-one else has a better option.
The color is ugly and dull.....they show scratches from bush branches...

.....But, I think they are beautiful

You CAN most definitely see the fuel level in the orange Safari tanks.
Maybe not as easily as white/clear to be able to see this while riding, but an easy shake shows off the level of the gas surface pretty well enough when stopped.

On the other hand, if it has been logged or mined and roads already exist,,
