The problem is the mounting hardware, make sure you can get that too or first, good luck...

And you will need to make the tear-drop infills out of stainless or other shiny plate...

What he said, these covers have a history because originally when BM were running the cup series they were very thick cover that had to be drilled and lock wired onto the headers I have such on mine, the carbon fibre option then came very quickly as the punters option for road bikes.

Their was at on time a complete replacement for the metal rocker cover in carbon, I actually had a pair and broke the one with operator error....... and never seen a replacement since

Chris, yours was an actual valve cover meant to keep oil where it is supposed to be and keep birds, etc. from interfering with valve function while dropping a few grams of weight.
The item in the post is costume jewelry.

I was under the impression that those covers won't fit a single spark motor. I've never tried so I could (most likely) be wrong.

I like the covers from a OOOOOHHH carbon! aspect or to cover a scratched up valve cover. I think from a protection standpoint these look much better. https://www.wunderlichamerica.com/BMW_Valve_Cover_Guards_33 but they are much more expensive.

I had the misfortune of low siding in turn 2 at Sonoma on my R1150r and it pretty much balanced on the valve cover as it slid off the track. The slide pad on those metal ones looks to be in the perfect spot based on the scratches (ground down area) I had.

I like the Carbon covers originally linked for bling or to cover a previously scratched valve cover. I found these guys for too much $$$$$ but they look like they would offer a lot of protection. The slider bit looks to be in the right place based on low siding in turn 2 at Sonoma. Watching the bike slide away balanced on the valve cover hurts. https://www.wunderlichamerica.com/BMW_Valve_Cover_Guards_33

Those actual valve covers made out of CF look pretty trick!

Seems like someone would design a puck type slider to go onto the cover.

You missed the floating part, the covers are rubber mounted & can move in a crash besides being awfully thin to be attaching something to. I use the plastic guards & have found them to work ok in preventing rash on the covers but won't hold up for long distance slides or prevent the cylinder from being ripped off. Crash bars have always been a better idea to slide along on & keep cylinders attached.

I've never had a problem swapping single spark with dual spark covers, the carbon fiber protective covers are specific for each never tried to swap them...

Hi Plexi,

I'm regularly looking for 1100S parts here in France.
I have found a used set for sale : https://www.leboncoin.fr/equipement_moto/1803065009.htm?ac=4000094330
Maybe he can ship to the US...

If not and you really want those, then I could help as an intermediate.

Let me know

Sorry to pirate the thread but I have one dual plug CF cover in very clean condition sitting somewhere in the garage (its nicely wrapped for safekeeping). I can cut it loose for $180 plus shipping and will throw in a set of beat to hell CF covers that I got with intention of wrapping, spark plug wire cover, bar weight and a front fork reflector. Sold my last BCR few years back, don't need the parts. PM me if interested.
