    Bob, those look great, but your Eagles are facing the wrong way(!). Always forward.

    Yes, if something can be assembled backwards or upside down I'm your guy. This is cosmetic and can swap when time? They are identical? :(

    The versions without Eagles: The spark plug hole is the indicator as to correct R/L placement. The holes are slightly off center and will align with the plug holes in the head. Those with Eagles, they should always face forward.
    Otherwise, they are identical and will work regardless.

    You just made me order these for my V7, thanks for posting the photo.
    What sand paper did you use (Grit) and how do you brush the surface to make it look like that?

    Thanks
    Chris

    200 - 400 - 800 grit on a sanding block. Be careful not to sand the area where the eagle is engraved any more than necessary.

    Ok. Let's try this again. I am sure I have done something wrong. Always left with extra parts. :sweating:

    THANK YOU! These were the types of shots I was waiting on! They look great on there! Todd did a great job. I'm not able to purchase as early as I would have liked. I have a bigger need for better suspension first. I hope I can get Todd to make more of these later on.

    Todd,

    If this has already been stated I apologize, but couldn't find the info. Will these work on the new V7II?

    No, completely different cylinder head and valve cover. You'll have to live with it as delivered.

    Hey Todd,

    Any chance these will fit a 2012 V7 Racer? And if so, any chance there is a spare set that didnt get sold off? Mine are all scratched up and the vintage styling looks great! If not, i might have to sand & powdercoat to fix.

    Thanks mate!

    Guys, I can't always catch every post here. Email is best.
    Both the valve covers and adapter plates are on the online Store tab above.
