Looks way better now!

I went in a slightly different direction with the Rizoma reservoir but then this option wasn't available then. The chrome plastic piece from Victory finishes the area up nicely I think.

It wasn't a lot. Maybe $30 but it feels cheap in your hands because it's high tech plastic that is held on by clear silicone. Check with your dealer or favorite online dealer. Kate maybe?

Once it's on it looks fine though IMHO.

It has been on a long time now and no peeling of the chrome or anything. It's probably better that it's lightweight plastic rather than a heavier steel or something that might rust in time.

Different approaches to get the same result. Looks good. Anything is better than a "urine specimen" hanging off the side of your bike. I had made for me a cover that originally was a fork slider in chrome from a Yamaha. Whatever it takes to cover that homely thing up.

Yep, I just want to chime in here. That POS reservoir really is an insult. There are some other slap in the face geegaws on these things. I just don't get it. This isn't a Zookie dirter for the kid, or a eastern bloc knock off of a western euro boxer. It's a first world luxury motorcycle. If Victory is compelled to incorporate a urine cup into the product, at least hide the damn thing. I wouldn't have batted an eye at another 100 bucks or 500 for that matter to just bury some of that stuff. Some other American motorcycle manufacturers think that their brake reservoirs are ugly enough to merit a cover standard equipment, and those reservoirs are painted metal... and they still cover them.
I mean it's not like we're not going to spend money on these things. Do they think we need additional incentive? I can just hear some bright boy in a marketing huddle "hell, why don't we just put 30 dollar Pep Boys China tires on it. The customer can buy decent rubber after the sale."
At the very least I wish they would consider curb appeal from closer than 10 feet away. I know my buds will be wowed by the power and the goodies but they will run me like a Kentucky mule over things like that Walmart fluid res.
I guess the good news is that Polaris has created a condition for me to improve that will result in more than just modifying for mod sake. There will be a payoff that is more than just swapping out perfectly good parts for other perfectly good parts. I will see real improvement and so will anyone with a discerning eye, and I haven't even started about that Radio Shack wet dream hanging off of the handlebars.

9secondsflat: Couple of beers after work, eh. All good but I don't see why you are doggin' on the rear master cylinder cover. Sure; it could be nicer but the bike model has been out for 3-4 years now and no one has come up with anything better and so far; the cheap chrome plastic thing is still working ok and doing what it was supposed to do.

Oh, wait, this isn't about the cover at all is it! It's about slipping into the conversation to mention your badass TR.

Well heck, mate, why didn't you just say so straight up?

C'mon mang; spill it out there and don't forget the pics, eh!!
