I saw these advertised on Facebook, but it was clearly a scam. Does anyone know where I can buy this set from. It has the extra piece going down the front. I have scratches on my cases that were there when I bought the bike.

Thank you

This wrap looks really nice. Wish it was still available, however a Google search did not come up with any leads let alone pictures. So, whoever offered this wrap or service has ceased selling it.
There was a guy called thetankslapper that would wrap the gas tank trim piece between the seat and the tank with carbon fiber wrap. However reviews for this service on other forums were quite negative. I would recommend steering clear of him.

Good luck. Let us know if you find the source.

Tech Spec makes some nice covers. I’ve used their products in the past and have been meaning to get some of their covers for the FJR side cases. However, I ride without them 99% of the time.

Really weird that they can't be bothered to actually take a picture of the product

I think I could make those with some wrap material ,cut out a paper shape and then use my vinyl cutter to make them . Looks good and could be easy to set up . I will try to make a set .
Let me know if you do and I'll buy some from you.

I haven't seen the ones posted, but they look like carbon fibre wrap material (i.e., thin). Top piece copies the TechSpec shape..... I have the backing paper off a set of TechSpecs, could easily trace that onto wrap material... Joe, I'll copy them and make you a set of templates if you like......

I thought that was odd too. However, from buying their products in the past, I’ve no concerns about their quality.

Attached find a template. Print full size 8.5 x 11, preferably on heavy stock, then trim.... take the pencil lines off, I wouldn't go bigger. Note the square grid is 1" x 1" graph paper for reference. Note also, the upper and lower lines are curves, not straight.
Take your template and test fit to the saddlebag. Transfer to a piece of 1/4 or 1/8" hardboard and make a template you can use as a cutting guide on whatever material you choose.

Here's my DIY suggestion: First I applied the clear sticky back film*** to the bike, then traced the area I want to cover. I used (flexible plastic ruller and led pencil/sharpie)
(***clear film I used for tracing is Home Depot, cupboard shelvings protective film, or similar)

Then peel the clear film from the bike, stick it to the back of a "clear protective film" (to create a negative), then use that on the back side of "carbon fiber vynil" and cut along the line.

If both sides of the bike are the same, you can just flip over your template and cut the other side.
This is how it looks.

For better curvatures use these:

P.S. once done, save the backing papers, scan and share, just like Ray did :)
