    I used this in a ninja 250r and a ninja 650r. It fit both bikes very well (the 650 as if it were made for it, a small more enveloping on the 250), snugged under the tires, and did a excellent job protecting them from sun, tree debris, and the neighborhood cats. I loved the camo, it set my bike apart without being too obnoxious. And the heat shield worked fantastic; never had a problem putting the cover on right after a ride when my pipes were hot.

    HOWEVER. It was not waterproof. Not at all. Even after I repeatedly sprayed it with scotch-guard. Maybe it would repel water from a very light sprinkle or drizzle if it was brief and there was a nice stiff wind to help dry it off quickly, but with any real rain, it soaked through and showed off my bike’s paint affect like a wet t-shirt contest. It would pool between the outer cover and the inner heat shield lining like a water helium balloon, and I really had to cut holes in the heat shield liner so it could drain out. The soft non-scratch liner at the front to protect the windscreen got mildewed within a month of autumn showers. I was very disappointed with the non-weatherproof nature of this so-called “weatherall” cover, and I will not be buying dowco covers in the future.

    Fantastic Dirt bike Cover, December 27, 2012

    I’ve bought this cover to protect my Ducati 1098 and it really lived up to its name.

    The material is certainly protective over wind, sun, moisture, dust and water. It looks excellent and it also has cloth padding on the tail side of the bike which I believe prevents it from scratching the paint.

    It has one strap under the cover which allows you to wrap it nearly the bike – becoming very useful in windy days.

    I’ve used it in New England weather for about eight months this season; I’ve noticed that it eventually loses its waterproofness but it subdue feels very lasting and no rips.

    So, if you have a bike that you want to protect, for the price, this is a fantastic choice and I like the camo print :)

    This cover fits on my 2008 Suzuki GSX-R 600 perfectly. It’s snug at the bottom and repels water perfectly. There are ample straps to keep this cover fully secured to the bike.
