There is a new video out on TWMX showing Nick Wey from Valli Motorsports Yamaha riding with the new Cycra Plastics and Team Graphics from Valli. They look pretty awesome.

Its like $90 for the shroud and another $20 for the tank cover

I would almost bet that replacing the same stuff with OEM plastics would be the same or more expensive. Also, you get 40% more air induction that oem. I almost sure that this would be the least expensive mod you could do for more horsepower (to run better). Unless you want to hack up your stock stuff. Seems like a good investment to me.

yea, i just looked into it. Its almost the exact same price. the cycra stuff is definitely the way to go. $110 still seems like a lot for a couple pieces of plastic

Yeah, I'm not enjoying going from being able to buy a whole set of oem plastics for around $100 for my 08 to the same amount for just the shroud pieces on the '10. I got the cycra shrouds and they fit really well.

Are you running graphics on the cycra shrouds that work with OEM shrouds? If so, how did they fit? I want to go Cycra but not at the expense of not being able to run standard graphics (since custom cost more).

I don't know if I buy the whole 40% increased air flow, under their specific circumstances that they tested it at. I doubt the performance increase is noticeable enough to warrant spending the money unless you needed new shrouds anyways.

I run graphics made just for the shrouds.Impulse graphx makes semi custom kits and has the cycra templates.
