Help with clutch cover on 748

Been back and forth on a clutch cover for my 748. I want to keep the clean style of the bike without the upgrades being to modern or over the top

I'm between the STM 360 cover in black or the Speedymoto 5 spoke cover in black. I am a huge fan of these covers in gold however being a yellow bike I figured black was the way to go over a gold Speedymoto pressure plate eventually.

Just looking for comments good or bad on these covers on a 748/916/996/998 style bike!

Does anyone think the Speedymoto is to modern ? does it look odd with the factory 3 spoke wheels? ( I love my wheels, no chance I'll "update" them!

Also would you buy the titanium color to match the frame it go with black?

I have that exact 5 spoke speedymoto cover and one thing to keep in mind is that it looks nice and black now, but after the heat from the engine and the sun beats on it, it'll turn to a purplish color unless you re-anodize it.

I went with that cover precisely because it matched the 5 spoke wheels in general shape... not sure I would have gone with this if I had the 3 spoke wheels.




That being said I have been on the hunt for a pristine Corse CF cover to replace this one.

Simple carbon that goes well with the other carbon bits on the bike.

Thank you all for the input. Most of my other upgrades on the bike are carbon fiber so maybe I should consider that also!
