Side Panel under the Tank left Side Carbon - BMW R 1200 R (LC) from 2015
The lower tankcover in carbon for the BMW R 1200 R (LC) from MY 2015 is a direct replacement for the original component. We designed the part bigger than the original plastic part, to cover more the injection parts, as well as the petrol and electronic lines. It ontributes 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.
