I have an aluminum cover sold by Ducati. It is not polished.

Rizoma makes a nice one. I've got one on my bike:



I can take a close up shot later if you can't find one. Don't have time right now.

yeah i looked at the ducati one and saw the one hyper has on his bike, but i am looking for somehting that looks identical or near identical to what we already have, just fabricated out of aluminum.

i wonder how much it would cost to fab something like that myself.

ahem - I think you meant to say what hyper has on HER bike! :p

You might check out desmotimes.com. LT sells some that look somewhat closer to stock.

What about this one… it is around 40€

If you want a copy of the OEM one, maybe you can get it cast using the plastic part as a melt out model

Piece of cake. A small sheet of aluminum (.090 should do) some tubing, some longer screws and an hour or two with your drill, a bandsaw and your files. Mock it up with a Manila folder first and then make your own, one-of-a-kind sprocket cover. Bet ya it'll be the one part of your bike that you're most proud of. Go for it.
