I got this for my BMW R1200GS or R1200R.
This will not fit a R1200R 2009 without modification.
The only issue is a plastic cap that holds the spring of the cap swivel. In both my R12GS '08 and R12R '09, that piece would just snap.
The SW-MOTECH supplied piece came without the metallic tabs for the plastic part to snap in, but rather with two screw holes.
I had to modify the OEM plastic part, without damaging the tabs, so it would work on the OEM ring. In the end, I didn't need to screw it in, just to put it on top of the swivel. Once you screw the ring onto the gas tank, it will be held in place.
So, it's working, but not without lots of patience and modification.
The ring that came to replace the OEM ring, is completely sub-par and very cheap looking, like a chinese knock-off.
The paint finish is runny, and just awful. I mean, this goes in $20K+ motorcycles, so it should look the part. This was $60, so, not precisely cheap.
I have one of these on my K12R, and SW-MOTECH parts are always top-notch, so it was a bit disappointed on the finish of this.
I'm sure it will work just fine, and durability will be good. Just the finish was extremely cheap looking.

I bought this armor for my GF.
I wanted a Dainese armor, but I don't think Dainese has made a compelling combo such as this. This armor is very easy to get in and get out. No fuz.
The look is awesome.
I think my gf is now very well protected.
I think the thorax protector should have been molded to compliment the female shape more... I was concerned that she would feel too compressed in her breasts, but she said the armor is comfortable.
A friend of mine's wife saw her wearing it, and asked me to buy another. Good product.

I bought this helmet for my GF.
Great price, and lots of features.
I think if you can afford a SHOEI, this is a good alternative.
The styling is good, and the level of features is excellent.
It has a lot of nifty features, such as the tinted internal visor, the magnetic strap.
She upgraded from an open face (she used to feel claustrophobic), to this modular. She is very, very happy.
She even carries the fabric bag everywhere we go. She wants to baby this helmet.
The only disappointing thing, was the mechanism to lift the chin bar, and open the helmet. It feels cheap, and it doesn't have that quality feeling of a Shoei. Other than that, it's a hit.

I wanted the full metal pro gloves... but I balked at the $350 price. So I looked for alternatives.
These gloves pretty much provide the same level of protection and style (sans the Titanium).
They are very comfortable.
I bought them in red... in the website was shown in a darker red, but "ROSSO LAVA", well means that. So my gloves were of an intense red... they kinda didn't go with the rest of my outfit. So, I sold them to a friend.
I getting the Carbon Pro in all black.

I purchased these protectors when I ride with pants without any protection.
Now, I have quite a few pants with all the protection, so I bestowed them upon my girlfriends.
She loves them. They are stylish, and they look the part, and she feels very protected.
They are actually designed to be worn underneath something... so, when you do, make sure that you have some long socks, or some other fabric against your skin. The protectors straps will cause irritation.
Great protectors.

I purchased the Jacket a few weeks back, and I've taken it to a couple of longish trips.
The fit of the jacket is impressive. The leather is so soft, yet you can tell the level of protection is there.
The smell of the leather is worthy just by itself. It's awesome.
I purchased both the back (Air G2 L2) and the thorax protectors.
I "justified" purchasing this jacket as a replacement to my Wave WT armor (too cumbersome). So, I used both protectors all the time.
The weather in Nicaragua is 75F to 96F (24C to 36C), and the humidity goes from 55% to 70%. So, it's very humid and hot.
The jacket does let airflow through. I've been wearing it on a K1200LT, so the windscreen blocks the airflow, but I've stood up in the footpegs, and you can feel the airflow on the jacket.
I also bought the Dainese Delta Pro EVO Estivo pants. Let me tell you, people gets very impressed by the outfit. Its so classy, and almost outlandish.
Yes, I love this jacket. I'm selling all my previous jackets to buy more Dainese.
