sorry the pics are bad, they look like something the factory would have done, when installed on the black devil.  They be much cheaper than the originals, and screw on.

I prefer the look of the originals as well, but they are now approaching $20usd each.  Moto Guzzi has screwed their new replacements up as well, on my stelvio and GRiSO both eagles look forward (The badges original to the bike).  The last new ones my dealer ordered the lefts and rights had the same badge in two different part number bags so one eagle looked forward and one looked back.  I just put up my originals, and use the practical ones.  (will put the orig. ones on if I am forced to sell either bike)

Just a functional part if you prefer function to flash.

To be perfectly honest, I have left the badges off because my plugs are in and out more often than the proverbial rabbit genitalia.

I think they are a good idea, despite the fact that I like my function to have flash.

I recall seeing these on another site, but I don't recall which. Are they your invention?

I have to admit to being the maker of these,   I have some very nice aluminium plugs for the giant hole in the side of the GRiSO foot control plates but they are not finished yet,  They get rid of the uber cheesey looking chrome plastic rings on the side, in the big tube that goes through the frame.

Have a super set of these covers that have a larger oval, and engraved with the M G,  and another set with the eagle and MG on them  but to look good they had to be about .75 inch high, and 1.2" long  I will post a pic of those as well....the downside of the flashy big ones are that they take a while to make and would be more than the red suspender crowd would stomach.

Not trying to make a buck from this site...that is why I did not list a link to them...they are available though, I teach cnc programming , solid works, and shop at our local community collage, and we are a featurecam/ hass training site.

I saw the post on the bar raisers,  these would be easy for me to make if there was a need.

Goodo. I'm hardly in the red suspender crowd, and have been known to throw money at shiny stuff.

If Steak doesn't mind, please post the link. I will buy some. I would also buy some risers if they were available in a suitable size. I only need 6 - 10mm.

Did you have to remove the ultra tiny bit of mold flash? some covers have it and some do not. a tiny nick with a pen knife gets rid of it if the cover does not sit perfectly level

I didn't notice any mold flash. I might have missed it though,  I can't see up close without my glasses.  Shocked
