Trying to source cowls for a GS160 (VSB1T). I can't seem to find any original or aftermarket .

Ideas welcome. My last ditch effort will be to fabricate something, maybe CF.

Thanks
Jeff

I don't know how difficult it would be for you to deal with someone on Facebook marketplace in another country, but this guy has them.

I'm not sure why you can't find reproductions. There are plenty. Here's one source:

Alas, another out of stock source (Scooter Mercado). I don't see cowls at any other North American parts seller.

Order SIP through Scooter Mercato. Much cheaper shipping that way. Call them up, they will order it for you.

sip has become the wordwide distributor for these metal body parts.

https://www.sip-scootershop.com/en/product/side-panel-spare-wheel-side-left_75145160

when they dont have them its tough to have them.

I have two of the left side if that helps. I have the other side (engine side) en route in a sea freight shipment.

will be here in two - three weeks.

@scootermercado

I need the right, engine side. But I was thinking I could just buy a set.

THANKS, for the reply
