    Yea I have been all over the internet looking but no luck.
    Sometimes i think maybe it's time to let them both go to a good home.

    If you see a used one off a 1000 look at the pictures closely, the body color panels can wear a line through the chrome. Just a heads up. Good luck.

    These covers have been discontinued for quite some time now and @ 100.00 each, not many guys bought extras to have laying around for when they need them. I wished I'd have bought twice as many as I did.

    You should've bought the set for $250.00......you won't see them again. They were sold by one of our members.

    It's crazy to think that the value of a nice set of horns and chrome airbox covers is 20% of the value of a clean bike. The clean ZL1000 on Craigslist here isn't moving @$3500 so I figure 3g is the top of the market here.

    :hello: Does anyone know anyone that has a 3-D printer. I remember one of our members was going to have horn covers made at one time or another. Now we need air box chrome covers made.

    :hello: OK: I just hate when a member doesn't follow through with something or at least tell use that they changed their mind. One member who said he was going to make horn covers was Oldrider but he hasn't been on the forum since JAN. 2014.
