I spent some time trying to read and find the best grips for my RR. After reading and watching some revzilla videos I decided on these and couldn't be happier after install. First the install was simple and is easy to readjust if not exactly where you want them. Next they look really good on the bike. They also perform very well and they don't protrude off the tank as much as I thought they could.
Overall very happy in looks performance and simple ease of install.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Dissappointing lower mount/install

Lower mount installed on a 2015 S1000RR. I've installed several Competition Werks (CW) fender eliminator kits on various bikes I've owned in the past and have really liked them for their their quality and ease of installation but this is by far the most disappointing one yet.
First the good:
- The bracket is hinged and is a quality piece as usual from CW.
- I like how clean the lower mount makes the tail end look, but it's lacking... Read further.
Now the bad:
-Very minimal instructions that doesn't explain anything- if you're not comfortable ad libing the entire install this is not for you. What it doesn't tell you is you need to cut the wires from the existing fender. It also doesn't explain where all the bolts go that come with kit. You need to completely pry apart and remove the nearly the entire rear fender to pull the two silver bolt ends out. In order to do this entire install you're going to need to remove the passenger and main seat, all six bolts (2 on the underside, 2 on the side, and 2 under the passenger seat), remove the rear fender (3 bolts) and cut and mark with tape the wires to the turn signals and plate light, and then CAREFULLY pry apart the lower plastic from the upper. Once apart you can remove the two silver bolt pieces. You'll notice the kit will come with one smaller screw and that is used to replace the center bolt from the old fender hole and will hold on the new center light and bracket.
-My biggest gripe is the rear bracket install. It tells you to just drill two holes in the lower tail. If you do this without looking behind where that goes you're going to drill right into an ECM or some other type of controller that is mounted inside underneath the main seat. That's why you have to remove the seat to pull that out before drilling. There is NO warning on the instructions!!! And even after removing that if you try and center the bracket you're going to find that it's nearly impossible to get two bolts with nuts in that small space. The other bad thing is that even after finding someway to mount it, the plate barely is visible at night and that light barely illuminates it. I have already been pulled over and cops have used its location to harass me.
Overall not worth it. I even didn't use their turn signals, they're sort of cheap looking, and I instead installed an integrated tail light with turn signals. All I really wanted from the kit was the plate holder and rear light but both of those are likely to be changed out at this point.
No, I do not recommend this product.

I've logged over 500 miles since purchasing these gloves and so far I like them a lot . First off I would like to say fantastic review by Revzilla, dead on with letting you know to drop a size down with these gloves. I'm usually a large and I went with a medium and they fit like a bit tight around the wrist but perfect in the fingers. Since putting some wear on them they have worn in and feel great. Initial fit is soft on the fingers and palm due to the kangaroo leather and a bit rough on thd knuckles due to the plastic air vents. The first few rides while breaking them in left my knuckles red because they were still breaking in but since them they have been fine. Movement is great right off the bat, I was surprised how much movement there was especially with all those layers of protection. Ventalation is great, can feel each vent working in the heat but still keeps you plenty warm when cold. Love the protection features and high quality materials. A+ overall after break in. Probably the best street glove available for the money.
Yes, I recommend this product.
