Re: 954 Seat cowl

Was not going to chime-in on this one... but I ordered an OEM with slight rash from fleabay for mine.... had to paint it to the colour I was applying to the rest of the bike after fixing up some scuffs... but I think I paid $30 shipped to my door and I already had the paint =)

Note: Trying to match Honda's "Winning Red" on an RR2 is not easy..... I tried and failed miserably just before I started breaking Serenity down for her "full paint job"... you know the one I still have not fully completed......stupid fuel tank...

are you looking for OEM, or is aftermarket okay?

Re: 954 Seat cowl

Finding an OEM will be a bit hard especially if you're looking for a specific color. Look at this post:

Re: 954 Seat cowl

You are better off to find a used OEM part. It often takes time to find one of the right colour and in good shape_plus you will pay a premium for it, but the Chinese crap is just that; crap. That is neither here nor there as you are already attempting to source an OEM to begin with =)

Motosport.com (my "go-to") only lists the pillion as an option... nothing for the OE solo cowls =( Take the time to scour forums and fleabay for an OE used one in the right colour... it will pay off in the end =) As I mentioned- I ordered mine with some rash on it (around $35 all-in) but knew that I was going to paint it anyway. It swaps with my regular pillion very easily and fits as it should.

Re: 954 Seat cowl

Sorry for the late reply. I bought one from China but it wouldn't fit so I am still on the hunt for one as long as it fits my bike I am happy as I could always get it painted.

Re: 954 Seat cowl

I would scour fleabay for a used one then. I paid right at $33 w/shipping for mine that had just a touch of rash on it. Was easy enough to fix up and was not cracked (cracked is much much harder IMO). I do not see any worth a damn at the moment on there though...

FWIW- it took me about 3 months of watching fleabay almost daily to find one that was not completely knackered... or $100+ dollars. It was worth the patience in the end.

Re: 954 Seat cowl

^^ Not a bad find. Beats having to touch it up before painting... but that price =) Really not bad for a factory new OEM though... and to only have to do a quick paint (assuming you can match the winning red...)

Re: 954 Seat cowl

Exactly. Honda doesn't sell them anymore and most dealers have rid themselves of any they had. Anyone that has a 954 and possibly wants a seat cowl, now would be the time to buy.
Go to a paint shop and find someone smoking outside and ask them how many beers it will take for them to paint it.
