GB Racing Engine Cover Set Yamaha R6 2006-2015
Function and Form at its finest!
Wouldn't expect anything less from a company with as much experience at the track as GB Racing. All hardware was present, covers fit perfectly with no issues, install was a breeze (minus time to remove fairings). Only had one clearance issue on the right side where the added width of the clutch cover compressed the foam on the lower fairing too much and was pushing it outwards. about two minutes of mild trimming of the foam with a razor blade solved that. I had a previous 06 R6 that had been down at a track day, and lost the motor due to an 8mm bolt holding the oem clutch cover on sheered off, and cracked the block where it threaded into. Made these one of my first purchases for the new R6 to avoid that again.

No reason to buy any other case covers
I put these to the test on my 2007 YZF-R6 race bike just days after installing them, managing to crash twice (on the same side, no less) in my last race weekend. The timing cover took the brunt of the damage both times and took nothing more than cosmetic damage. I bent clip-ons, broke a footpeg, and smashed up an exhaust, but the engine case didn't take a scratch! These covers helped minimize the crash damage so I was able to easily get my bike back on track on make my races.
I was initially skeptical due to the cost and the plastic construction, but make no mistake, these things are TOUGH and you notice it as soon as you put your hands on them. They are a quality, engineered product, not cheap injection molded junk. The safety wire hole pre-drilled in the clutch cover is a nice touch for safety wiring your fill cap. There's simply no reason to buy any other case covers on the market... these offer both the best pricing and best performance.

Excellent initial impression. Will update if/when tested.
Without testing their crash worthiness, I cannot in all honesty say these things are as excellent as they seem, but the fit and finish is excellent.

a must have for any bike!
because its MUCH cheaper to replace cover sets than a cracked housing/engine and what not... considering that every bike has gone down or will go down at some point, this is a must have! The looks of its is pretty sick too once they're on! they're quite light and feel study.

Great look and great quality
These covers fitted perfectly on my 2008 Yamaha R6, and the material seems to be very resistant.
I'm very pleased with the price/quality ratio
