I like the one with the padding on it myself, its that the yamaha one? ive heard the fit and color dont match well on one of them, is that the targa or yamaha one? You'd think yamaha would know their own paint code at least???

Many more complaints about fit and color match on the Yamaha cowl. I am one of those complainers from first hand experience with my blue 03 cowl.

Remember that the Yamaha piece is not made in Japan with the bikes by Yamaha. A company in Italy makes them and the paint batches, while maybe the same formula, is seperate from the bikes' paint batch.

FWIW- The Targa comes with a self adhesive pad that you can attach though it looks different then the yamaha cushion.

I ordered it from targa. I never put the foam padding on it that it came with and I also removed the decal. Targa requires easy assembly awesome look, fit , and color match. The yamaha is pre assembled, this one fit just as good as my targa, color didn't match well. Yeah targa first 2 pics and yamaha next 2 pics.

I've got the Targa one after having ordered the Yamaha OEM one and not liking it due to bad color match. The Targa one matches much better and has a much cleaner look! Both cost about the same price. The nice thing however about the Yamaha one is that it requires no assembly, and it has the helmet hooks built into it like the OEM passenger seat.

is the targa cowl a pain to take off? I tend to like to put stuff in my compartment.
