Metal K1300 Reservoir Covers

I was at the dealership yesterday and noticed a bike with metal covers (probably Aluminum) for the UGLY reservoirs mounted on the handlebars. The metal covers definitely improved the look.

I should have taken a picture of them.

Any ideas on where to get a set?

Available in Germany

Thanks for the link. Anybody have any available from the US or Canada? The shipping from these folks is more than the product ($51.87).

Looking at the Hornig Germany site, the U.S. importer is:

USA / North & South America:

Eurotech Motorsports
1017 Willow Street
Chico CA 95928
Internet: http://www.eurotechmotorsports.com/

This might be them: K1300 caps

I wanted to visit that place when I was in Chico a month ago. Just couldn't remember the name of it. Must load it in the Zumo.

See if this link works. These are from Wunderlich and should be available from Santa Cruz BMW.

For $110 I'll just look at the plastic ones. I've already hidden one of them under my radar detector.

I don't have a K13GT, but I have to agree with you - they don't look $110.00 bad! I'm sure I would get used to them and wish I had my money back!

Are the covers the same size as Japanese bikes? If soI bet they are less than $10.
