These carbon tank side panels for the BMW R 1200 GS models from MY 2008 are full carbon and the original stainless steel bezel was purposely omitted. However, we also offer tank panels with polished stainless steel bezels for lovers of the stainless steel bezel.
This part is a direct replacement for the original component and contributes mainly to weight saving on the motorcycle (up to 70% less) and a higher stiffness of the parts. Like all of our carbon fibre parts, it was made according to the latest protocols and industry standards and can be considered to encompass all aspects of current 'best of industry' practice. The part is made completely out of pre-preg carbon fibre materials using an autoclave. As with all our carbon parts, we use a clear plastic coating that not only improves the appearance, but also protects the carbon fibre from scratching and has a unique UV resistance.
