    Got one for the Zed from DNA. Had to wait a while but it came eventually. Nobody else seemed to have.

    ianmp its know as a rear wheel hugger, attached is a pic. its the plastic\carbon fiber\ fiber glass or what ever material they make it out of that goes over the back wheel to prevent stones, mud, etc from shooting up from the back wheel.

    I've been looking for one for a while now but I can't justify R1500 (average import) knowing the tax man will want some $$ too

    GO look at motomummy.com..

    I bought in a Puig race screen for my new race bike and it cost me about R700 including the shipping from the States (local price from R1250 - R1400). Corey has a flat international shipping rate of $30 on regular sized parcels....

    I imported a Bazzaz fuel injector, TRE, brake lines, brake pads, stomp pads and the screen .... was a LOT cheaper than locally.

    Possibly... but what do they cost locally? VAT at 14% plus a small handling fee...

    My screen was $84 and retails here for between R1300 and R1500 depending on where you go..

    Knee Draggers.com also has them.... $162 for black, $189 for carbon look.... so my guess is that they will retail here for around R3k??

    Last time I checked, war-eagle had one for about R1000.
    I'm looking for a longer one than the OEM though, trying to stop all that cr@p going into my sub-frame area.

    shoo... my screen was about R900
