Great job guys. Another great option for us owners. As noted above, any pictures of it installed showing fitment would be great appreciated. Also, can you provide more details on the install? I'm assuming some drilling is required?

I want it. I'd rather scrape this than the clam (it'll cover the scrapes now!)

If I get it do I need to do the wing or I can do it by itself?

Don't laugh....I'm a motorcycle guy.................................

Hate to be a weenie, but if you don't mind, how much does the carbon fiber one weigh?

Thanks!

Nice closeup pictures!

Any pics farther back?

Will this be effective for front downforce (like the GUT)?

Nice work at a fair price !!!

Is the securing method good because I remember at least one person who had their similiar Reveri unit blow apart and damaged the claim?
