I was going to suggest Zero Limits Carbon in the UK. I purchased a couple of items for my 961 from them and the quality was really good.

Difficulties followed when Norton ceased trading with Zero Limits and Norton raised IP issues for the reproduction of carbon parts; Zero ceased producing the parts. The thread is on the site somewhere.

Thought since the impending demise of Norton things may have changed however I believe that Zero have now ceased trading. Owner was seeking to sell the business but could not find a buyer. I'll leave it to the research pro's to investigate the Dark Web and find some truths ref Zero Limits.

CNW and Richard-07 had some parts, extensive thread on the forum where they were basically strong armed into submission by Norton, things have all changed, would be great to see CNW and Richard breath some life back into this aftermarket opportunity.

I don’t see how Norton ever had a say so in aftermarket carbon fiber parts. Anyone can reverse mold Norton’s carbon pieces. Before the collapse or now.
Aftermarket car part suppliers reverse mold oem hoods, fenders, doors, etc and sell them and not a thing the oem manufactures can do about it.

besides. The biggest freaking con man that stole anything was chief asshole himself SG.

Correct, there is a EU ruling that protects the aftermarket from the OEM's, as long as you do not include TM symbol's its ok.

But if you are dealing with a bully with a legal team then it costs you to defend those rights, if your profit on a low volume producer is a few £100 a year then it makes sense to just give in to the bully.

It would be wonderful if we could buy directly from Norton's source. I know the latest version of carbon fiber parts that I bought from Norton was very good .

I was bored last week and decided to make airbox covers.
The plan was to make next winter a complete airbox, and enlarge it. But I’m happy I did this last week by a quick and dirty method. Not the highest quality in the weave but good enough for now. Stil a improvement.

Yes... but now we know, Mr. Ponzi couldn't afford a legal team to protect his interest.
