    Received Daivie's ready trimmed engine cover through the post yesterday so fitted it today. Very pleased with the results and think my bay looks a lot more tidy now :)

    Also fitted the OEM D revision DV. Its not made any difference to performance as my existing C revision DV had no tears in it however hopefully this DV will last better with it not having a rubber diaphragm.

    Apologies for asking but what's the difference between now and before?

    The airbox has basically been cut out of the engine cover so that it will fit with my Twintake.

    Cheers chaps,

    I am wondering if I should carbon wrap the white bit of the engine cover so it would then match the air filter cannisters of the Twintake. What do you think? Or would that look a little tacky?

    Anybody able to photoshop that for me?

    I think it will look good :o.k:

    plus i guess , if you dont like it you can remove the sticker and clean up?

    For what it's worth, I wouldn't put the carbon fibre on the engine cover - I don't think it would look right.

    It looks perfect the way it is the carbon wrap may be too over the top.
