Replacement fork caps anywhere?

PostAuthor: mr vroom » Wed Aug 07, 2019 5:34 pm

Has anyone found a source for replacement fork caps for a 1st XV 750? I believe they are 38mm.

Don’t need OEM, just something that looks better than nothing. Tried EBay, but Under the oem part # 4X7-23168, the cost is $35/a piece for the plastic ones. I’m a cheapskate - and wondering about alternatives

Just so you know, you probably already do know, they make vinyls that have mirror like chrome surfaces that can be heat formed by hair dryer to cover any surface.

some ebay sellers sell small sample pieces for cheap. Those sample sizes are sometimes big enough

example.

Kinda tough to apply on rubber. 1100 vs 750 caps..two different critters.
