Default 03 and down Carbon Fiber Air Cleaner cover?

Am I the only person that is lusting for a Buell style carbon fiber ham can cover?

Let's see if we can get a group of perspective customers together and make it "doo-able" for one of the vendors...

Didn't know Buell had a ham can type breather. The breather box is where the gas tank traditionally is. Wouldn't work too well on a Sporty. In fact there doesn't seem to be a whole lot on a Buell that will work on a Sporty.

Hey relay,

I wanted a carbon fiber a/c cover, but a round one smaller than the ham can, our local HD dealer has one on a Buell racing bike they have on display but no one seems to know where it came from.

I'd go for a C/F ham can! Will the Buell have the same mounting hole spacing to fit the SE backing plate? The Buell C/F race covers for tube frames appear to have the mounting screw holes closer together? I'm thinking about moving my air cleaner forward by modifying the backing plate to have knee room since I got rear sets. A C/F cover will be cool!

The Buell S2 had a sporty pattern carbon fiber air cleaner cover stock. From a bit of research, seems like a replica is going to be over $100 a pop. So lets call this one of those great ideas that cost too damn much to prursue...Still...a great looking part!

Has anyone tried Airtech? They make really nice bodywork and I imagine their CF stuff is pretty nice too.

Here is the link:

http://www.airtech-streamlining.com/amerz/hdafc.html

It appears that they even make more than one shape to fit the stock hamcan bolt pattern, I think that's what the right hand picture is.

Here's their price list, I think the CF hamcan is $72.45! A whole lot less than $100! I wonder if they would be receptive to a group buy--I bet they would.

I'd be interested in a group buy if price is right, $72.45 ain't bad tho.

Older Buell’s, back when they were actually Sportster motors… I believe the first ones had traditional pre 03 Sportster ham cam covers, later they were offset, later they were gone.

BTW Air-tech NEEDS a new web site…

Seems like that price is for the fiberglass version, check it out:

I got lucky and scored a S2 cover on ebay. I'll post a picture when I get it in my hands.
