    Cool Man!! Yeah, it's common to have to hand fit the carbon stuff. I'm pretty sure Bestem is using the same supplier as MDI Carbon which is another eBay outfit. Quality has been hit or miss in the past with the carbon products from eBay, but then again you're paying 1/2 the price or so compared to the ASB or Ilmberger carbon parts. Granted there should still be a decent fit and finish no matter who you buy from. Glad they were willing to give you a discount. Some folks have the F*** You, We got your money attitude.

    yeah. well Bestem USA was cool to me.. they were like "sorry man, we need you as a customer.. what can we do for you?" I just asked for a discount and no questions were asked.. they actually sent me back almost twice what I asked for .. so I figured I would return the favor and spread the word about these guys.

    yeah thrst, I was thinking about that.. just trace the top of the scoop with a pencil, take the scoop off and run a few inches of self adhering weather stripping.. that would look great.. send a tad more air to that back jug too. I swear it does run a bunch cooler... it cooled down a lot after I switched to Red Line 20W-60 synth too... Florida is hot man.

    it's also hot here in Arizona compared to when I lived in California. I have the stock RSS and did notice the difference right away, guess it's been almost 2 years since installing them.

    yeah.. Its very noticeable.. you can run the bike harder and it runs smoother than it did before.
