i tried a couple before this, and gave it a try based on reviews. glad i did. it goes on light and clean and i haven't noticed any fling. seems to lube well. i can definitely tell a clean and lubed chain vs not. all i tried seem to lube well enough tho, but the fling was why i use this.
Yes, I recommend this product.

i really don't understand why people find it necessary to leave a negative review on a product when they buy something that doesn't fit their application. it's not the product's fault.
these are universal fit for a certain size of bar, measure yours or look up what they are to make sure they fit. i have renthal clipons on my 08 r1, and they fit fine. snug, but they're supposed to be.
once installed they look very nice, fit like a stock item. very clean. screw placement is clever too. should be out of the way in the event of a crash. i haven't tested these yet, but the plugs the clipons came with held up perfectly when i did test them, very tiny scratches on bar itself. if these hold up as well as those, i'd expect em to be exactly what i want.
this review is for the non-weighted version, so i don't know how that affects vibes. but i just keep my damper tightened down, that's done more for vibes than any bar end i've used anyway.
Yes, I recommend this product.

these are the grips i get whenever i gotta replace em. simple, comfortable, and cheap. it's prob not recommended, but i don't even use grip glue anymore. they go on tight and don't stretch over time, i've never had a slipping issue without glue and it's much cleaner and easier. makes swapping a cinch.
Yes, I recommend this product.

i have the whole gb racing protection kit, but this is the piece that was tested. all of the pieces are very well made and fit perfectly. they're somewhat expensive, if you compare them to standard frame sliders, but i can tell you that frame sliders are for your friends dropping your bike in the parking lot at zero mph. my frame slider ripped off right away and the mount rotated back and hit a fairing mount. that bent the threads welded into the frame and cut one of the wires in the area. i'm confident the frame slider did more harm than good, at least ones i had. if u ignore that and compare to engine damage, these are def a good investment. this cover took a bunch of damage and held up nicely, no significant damage to part underneath.
one negative on this particular part is that the threads in middle for the fairing to mount to go all the way through the cover. when i landed that bolt got pushed into the cover underneath and made a mark. just superficial, so not taking a star off. but would be nice if it was backed with the nylon to keep metal to metal contact to a minimum.
Yes, I recommend this product.

read a few comments about the fit being bad, but mine was spot on. went on a 2011 bell star carbon and fit perfectly. i got the dark smoke and it seems about as dark as my other visors. i compared em last night in my house and i rode with it this morning, haven't compared beyond that. ride home today should reveal more about that. but i expect it to be similar. def wouldn't go light, but i've always had dark. even at night. there's only a few, very few, situations where i have to pop the visor cuz it's too dark. and that's only when i'm riding on back roads that aren't well lit, which isn't often. other than that, normal street lights offer plenty of light to be able to see perfectly fine at night. i considered the solfx lens, but i don't like riding with clear lenses. plus it's 3 times the price almost. good visor, no complaints.

to be more clear, this is a review of the 2011 carbon cerwinske(2010 shape). but according to videos, the only difference is an updated internal shape and upgraded padding. first things first, the helmet bag is an awesome touch. no other helmet that i know of does this, and it's nice. the next thing i noticed was how bulbous the helmet is. it was big and round. my other helmets(shoei rf1000 and ogk ff5) have a more ovaly shell and were smaller in every dimension. the shell on the star was large and round, which looked somewhat odd. now it makes for a large head opening, so on/off was super easy. especially with earbuds or earplugs if you wear those. and the liner is superb. it's a very supple suede and so comfy when wearing the helmet. when removing helmet the cheek pad rolls and scratches your skin due to the top face not being suede, but being a textile mesh type material. i would love to see the suede cover this area as well to make removing a little more comfortable. i love the magnetic strap. although the edges on the dring are a little sharp, making it more difficult to operate. keeps it secure, but a little tricky to work with. the visor is amazing. it seals about as perfectly as you can expect. the last inch of closure snaps closed very positively and securely. changing visors is even easier than my ogk, which is quite the accomplishment. arai should be ashamed of their system. the ventilation is up to what u read. weight was similar to my other helmets. the stability is noticably better than my current helmets. there's no pull in any one direction, whether popping up from a tuck or looking to the side. i'm guessing the shape accomplished this. either way, high speed stability is impressive. the helmet isn't heavy, but it definitely isn't light. feels about the same as my shoei, and a little heavier than ogk. i was surprised cuz i expected a fully carbon fiber helmet to be lighter. but that's ok, being able to see the cf pattern in the helmet is pretty nice. no regrets getting this over the suomy i was looking at that was over 200g lighter.
pros:
fit was perfect, right on normal size, excellent padding
lining material is top notch, oozes quality
ventilation as touted, great for so fl summer
free bag, not a cheapo either, very nice
easy visor change
visor actually seals and operates well
magnetic strap is beyond simple to use with gloves on
stability at speed
finish quality, from paint to inserts and what not
large head hole for easy on/off
speaker insets for those with comms/radio
cons(not even cons, but not pros):
large and funny shape, just not what i expected
dring little harder to operate than i'm used to
cheekpad scratches when removing
not as light as i'd expect
Yes, I recommend this product.
