    I've ordered the replacement embellisher for my 2011 R3T that will take the insert if I can find one...help please. My newly derestricted tune and free flow crossover pipe needs some sort of explaination for those wondering...."How big is it?" Thanks.

    Mittzy, You may have the last two still available. I initially had 75 made last year but sold out. The problem with a reorder is they require a minimum number (I think 50), which means you will end up with a lot of extra embellishers laying around.

    It's (almost?) impossible to find an original. Last I saw they were selling for a couple of hundred on eBay.

    I wound up having one 3D printed and silvered and cleared it myself... probably going to redo it one of these days to fit better. Probably putting real silver leaf on the next one.

    Yeah his reproduction from leatal sold for Au$100 with a new backing OEM plate after he got an Original one. Weird, but another OEM original one with backing plate was just sold by a US member to an another Aussie for US$75.

    Hen's teeth do appear occasionally even cheap ones! ;):D

    I posted all the different types here Oil tank embellisher?

    If your that desperate I think I may have a leatal reproduction on a factory OEM backing plate thats available too. I'd have to rummage around for it in my shed.
    I like the big real steel OEM chrome chunky one with the matching horn cover logo I have fitted now and the other leatal one I have on my Roadster screen TT strap. These beauties below and another factory one on a backing plate are going for just US$6 brand new in the US at the moment.

    Bastards have put them up to US$20 now.
