I bought my carbon vents from the Ducati Dealer. Have you looked there yet? The Ducati carbon is of mediocre quality. All of them that I bought has a small tag with them saying how they are 'race' quality and are extremely light, slight surface imperfections are going to be seen.

Well on my 2003 ST4s the rear hugger is carbon and it is beautiful, so I dont buy that statement. Also, all the side vents do not fit all that great.

I would look at or get an opinion of the fit and finish of the parts you want, if possible.

i have to agree on the fitment, although mine do look as good as my front fender and hugger.

thomas & feathercarbon- make sure you get what you pay for. bought $500.00 worth of CF stuff from them for my '04 ST3 about a year ago. 1/2 the order was incorrect on first pass, am still waiting for most expensive peice that has been promised too many times to mention. I'm a small business owner and always prefer to give the benefit of the doubt, but am troubled by feathercarbon.

Guys, I've already jumped into the pool as far as Feathercarbon goes. So... if your interested in fairing panel inserts and want to hold off, I am planning on taking detailed pics when my parts show up and I'll be more than happy to share the pics as well as my unbiased opinion when my parts show up for anyone interested.

I have feathercarbon side vents on my 05st3, the problem is on mine it started to cut in on the radiator hose.
I told them about it and even offered to send them my original panel so they could make a new mold for the new fairing style but they never followed through with it.
I ended up putting another piece of hose over the other.
I have there key guard,rear fender and heel covers also.

as promised...

here are the pics of the CF side vents from Feather Carbon. Apologies for the delayed post. Overall impressions: Have I seen better quality? yep. Have I seen worse? yep. However, my overall impression... given the quality and corresponding pricing, I find these pieces to be a pretty fair shake. Count on roughly 2 weeks for delivery.
