    I have the Suzuki drive shaft cover and I polished my final drive/hub. From what I have heard, the hub cover that is made is very thin plastic (Halloween mask like). Seems like most people are not happy with it.

    Word is they are making them out of thicker plastic. Credit card thickness is what I have heard from a member selling a extra one he ordered.

    Ive had it on since late Jan. Its holding up fine The problem most people have with it is its just so dang overpriced for a chrome "halloween mask" If you can get it on sale go for it.
    Thanks for the props on the wheels

    Not to jack this thread but did the guys with the Zuki drive shaft cover notice that it doesn't fit close to the shaft but rather sits away from it? Mine was either sitting nice and close and even on top of the pumkin nuts or it was sitting tight with the shaft but not both. I chose to have it sit even with the bolts since that shows the most. It didn't seem like a very good fit at all but it works.

    I ordered one and it fit so bad I sent it back. There is a welded sleeve on the inside that the hose clamp runs through. Where this sleeve is situated seems to cause a pivot point preventing the cover from fitting tight to the shaft. The dealer is ordering another one in hopes that a new one may have the sleeve welded in a different spot ensuring a better fit.
