The large cavities of the swing arm pivot are permanently and securely protected. This is hardly possible with the black original plastic covers, since they just about jump off after the first hard contact with the boot. The result: The holes get covered in dirt and the pivot corrodes. Our anodized aluminium covers not only cover the pivot in an elegant manner, they also provide a very secure closure.
Tip: Many aftermarket covers are simply inserted and held in place the help of an O-ring, which almost guarantees it will fly off eventually. We rely on a special set screw that pushes an O-ring against the inner wall of the hole; although this is technically elaborate, it is the only sensible way of fitting the cover. CNC-turned, milled and anodized or polished "Dural" aluminium. Fitting the cover is very easy*, and only a small Allen key is required to tighten the set screw.
* Installation tip: These covers are a very tight fit and if you experience problems installing, place the cover in the freezer for several hours. This will "shrink" the covers just enough to make installation easier. Wear some lightweight gloves when removing from the freezer and installing. A few gentle taps with a rubber mallet is enough to install a cold cover.
