At CARBONTECK we only manufacture clutch/ignition covers that are attached to your bike with silicone and not bolt on covers.
The reason for this is that a bolt on cover is only a dust cover and will only protect against scratches. With a bolt on cover – on high impact – the impact will go right through the carbon cover and crack or break the aluminium cover with pieces flying everywhere causing potentially major damage.
With a CARBONTECK cover fitted with silicon in the correct way, a high impact on the aluminium cover might crack or break it, but there will be no leak damage and all the broken pieces will stay intact.
We have asked an engineer at the University of Stellenbosch to test 5 of our covers to see how strong our product is.
The results were outstanding. Consequently we can confidently offer our product. The composition of a standard clutch/ignition cover is 2 layers of 170g twirl carbon, 1 layer of Kevlar, 2 layers of 600g biaxl glass and 1 layer of 400g twirl glass.
We use the same infusing technique as with our exhaust guards but we use a different epoxy.
