Carbon Quality...

With so many choices out there for our bikes, let's find the best. What's the input on these:

Shift-Tech
Motowheels
Magical Racing
Carbon Dry
CarbonWorld
Ducati Performance

Also, what other distributors or manufacturers are out there that make a quality product?

Well, kinda sorta, I know I named the most popular and best, but I was hoping to get someone's insight on MDI Carbonfiber out of Chino, California.

Funny I used to see lots of their stuff (MDI Carbon)on e-bay but lately they seem to have dissapeared.

I just bought some from East Carbon. Just have to wait and see how it looks when it gets here. The other question is, how will it look in three years?

I have some MDI on my R6. The parts fit exactly like the stock plastics but one of them arrived with a small nick that spidered out. Would I use it on my R6, yep. Would I use it on my Duc, no fuckin way.

This thread wouldn't be complete without me asking how to clean my chain, also - is WD40 OK for lubing the chain?




As far as carbon goes, with a late model Supersport there isn't so much choice with vendors, so for some parts you just have to buy what is available.
Of the bits and pieces I have bought so far the best quality would have to be Geelong Carbon Craft (rear hugger and fairing air ducts) http://www.geelongcarboncraft.com.au/ followed by a front fender I got from Ducati Kaemna (not sure of actual brand) http://www.kaemna.de and the belt covers from Desmo Porsche (unsure of brand, but looks identical to DP)
