I've owned a couple sets of genuine HRC covers. They are almost impossible to get & you can tell the real ones because the "HRC" is actually on a piece of thin fabric with a very fine almost silken type weave in itinstead of an embroidery type coarse thread stitch.

I might even have a few pics of to show the difference in the real ones versus the knock-offs I'll have to check & see.



The ones Mark sells though are damn good quality even if they aren't original. I've been using his for the last several years http://www.trademarkmotorsports.com/hrc-covers.html

Dumb newbie question...what are these for? I've seen them on race bikes and never knew. Are they to keep sunlight off the fluid (that CANT deteriorate it) or just to absorb vibration to keep it from foaming? Please be gentile with the flames:confused:

They serve two functions (well 3 actually)

1. They help absorb spillage in the event of a crash (brake fluid is slicker than snot when it gets on the track)

2. When you do a lot of track laps it is not uncommon to change or top off your brake fluid regularly. When you do this you get a residue of fluid around the cup lip & lid. At speed the low pressure air behind the windscreen causes a vacuum & sucks tiny droplets of the fluid up onto the windscreen & the fluid immediately mars the plastic making it look cloudy.

3. They look fuckin cool :D

I think scott meant the combo of heat and sun and brake fluid take a toll on the part over time. I'll stick my master in the oven tonight to see how it holds up!
