Seat cowl for a 06 Fireblade

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' started by edgelett, Jan 23, 2007.

  1. my dad just bought a 2006 Honda Fireblade (the CBR1000RRRRRBRCBRBRBRBRBRBR one)

    and he's decided that since it's HIGHLY unlikely he'll ever get my mum on the back (he doesn't want to take her riding anyway - she'll slow him down!) he's after a rear seat cowl

    he went to Peter Stevens & was quoted $500 for one. So I checked Aus Street fighters online, cheapest price I could get was $330.

    anyone know anywhere I could get an aftermarket seat cowl for this model fireblade? he's not keen on spending too much & is happy to paint it if need be.
  2. He could always just leave the seat on the back. That way he isn't spending a cent. :p I had the same problem. So I opted to keep my seat. No way in hell I am paying $300 for a piece of plastic that small.
  3. I have no idea where to get cheap seat cowls, and yet I still feel the need to contribute to this thread out of bitterness and jealousy.
  4. You're not paying for the plastic... your paying for the 'sex'-factor... what looks better? a cowl of course.... i wouldn't pay that much either, but haven't looked for this model where to source one :(
  5. Look on ebay... 04' - 05' - 06' - 07' all of them are the same.... I have heard that the 600' ones will fit aswell but can not confirm, but I can confirm the above models will fit..... :wink:
  6. G'day everyone,.....

    I don't know why Peter Stevens would charge that much for a rear seat cowl,......I bought mine there and it only cost me $280.

    I've herd of inflation but thats just nuts!!

  9. AF2AF3 has an 06 CBR cowl that you could probbaly compare to see if it fits (if it is cheaper than a Blade's cowl?)
