Good to know. How do they attach? Looks like over the top of the tank side panels.

Yes it uses the stock screw on the top that you can see and the rest just sort of sits there. The shops here are taking the piss at 150.00 but that is the rate.

It originates from some guy in Thailand, branded as S-Venture. Then some malaysians thought that making a copy is faster than waiting for the shipment from Bangkok.

Some people here call it the ant claw beak, or something to that effect.

Yes it is Thai and been here for a while now but the price is a bit cheeky for what it is. If anyone wants one I would be willing to send it in the post

I have been thinking of making a simpler one as well and been playing with a 1 piece version as well as the claw idea. On my own bike I am no longer running the beak and using the side filler fairings only.

I am very much willing to bet that Hoghead's beak is of superior quality. Pretty sure I could drive a car up onto it without much issue. He really overengineers the hell out of them!

I believe that somewhere in the far reaches of his mind, Hoghead has plans to venture into the "wilds" of BC, and use the GREEN HORNET as a model for a beak for Gen 1s....

Coming to BC this summer and will get up to Kelowna to see some friends. Will try to model the Gen 1 version then

I would prefer to have a Gen 1 in my hands in Maple Ridge for a few days as I have a small shop there. Anyone in the Lower Mainland willing to let me use their bike as a model?

Probably have room in my suitcase for a Gen 2 beak set as well

We do not have the Gen 1 here in Thailand - will the claw fit a Gen 1. If so I can make them easily
