Questions were answered quickly and courteously. Ordering was easy, Postage was prompt and Items received within 14 days as expected. Goods were exactly as described and fitted well. Quality was good, Would certainly deal with this supplier again.
I ordered two saddles for Triumph Thruxton and they are great!
The colors were exactly what I expected and the details are perfects.
Thanks to Omega Racer!
Hi Omega Racer team,
nice equipment you offer for triumph owner, to customize my Street Twin. I hope to see more from Omega Racer to give my bike a more individuell design. The quality of the JP Vintage seat is great and the style improves the look.
Thanks and best regards Andreas
Excellent parts and excellent service - many thanks.
I am really happy with the quality of my new seat. High quality leather and stitching. I appreciate the fact that my questions were answered in a timely manner. Seat came securely packaged. Overall great experience, thank you.
I have an 2015 SR400 FI and I ordered the Touring Seat. I received, and installed it without a hitch (I'm not considering purchasing a slightly longer bolt a problem). Comfortable riding and I couldn't be happier, until I installed the exhaust I purchased here as well. I was as giddy as a school girl and grinning ear to ear alll the way home. I can not recommend these parts enough. I will definitely be ordering again.
Received the seat , looks GREAT!
Thank you for your effort and awesome product!
Fit is better than stock .
Can't thank you enough!
Mahalo and Aloha
I got my JP Vintage seat today
It's beautiful,I love it
Thank you for your service
Ho acquistato una sella per la SR400 e devo dire che il prodotto è molto bello e sembra essere anche di buona qualità. Mi è arrivata qualche giorno prima del previsto e Markus è stato molto cortese e disponibile a rispondere a tutte le domande che gli avevo posto.
Got the new low profile brat/tracker seat for my 2015 SR 400 FI and the quality was top notch, great seams, sewing and the finish is flawless.
I love, love, love my new Omega Racer JP Vintage Brat Tracker seat. It's comfortable, looks amazing and I've already put over 1000 miles on it. Thanks for the brilliant craftsmanship and great customer service.
Thanks Omega pple for the quick delivery even though I opt for surface shipping. Product not fitted yet but it's beautiful and I know it's gonna looked good.
I bought a Touring-Seat for the Yamaha SR400 at Omegaracer. The seat is of a very good quality and exactly as described. I can recommend Omegaracer to every SR400 driver.
Thank you to the Omega Team for some exciting products for my SR400. Very good service and communication. Excellent shipping and packaging. Can recommend their products.
For anyone debating about the exhaust. Do yourself a favour and get their Supertrapp. Very solid sound experience. Good power boost and no power trap - can be used with original carburetor.
I bought one of your JP Vintage seats, I am very pleased, it fits perfectly, finished better than what I have seen else where even better than the EOM one, the material looks and feels like leather.. Nothing else to say! Maybe one thing, don't put too much of the cleaning product sent with it ( a very nice touch by the way) it makes the seat slippery...100% satisfy
I own a JP Vintage seat and let me tell you they are fantastic! My friend has a British Customs one and this is by far a more comfortable along with better looking seat and half the price! Well worth the $$
Ordered the "British Monster" seat for my 2010 Triumph Bonneville. Took a few weeks to make and ship and had to pay £65 import tax to the UK which I was not expecting, but the seat looks really great on the bike. It's slightly softer and more comfortable than the original and gives a lovely custom look. Quality is outstanding and I know it'll last a long time. Markus from Omega racer speaks good English and always replies promptly. Would recommend
bonjour à toute l'équipe
je viens de recevoir ce jour ma 4 ème commande omega racer.C"est toujours parfait pour la finition des pièces et pour l'emballage. Un seul reproche: faites un petit shéma pour monter les carénages pour éviter de passer 1heure(....) à comprendre le puzzle! J'enverrai des photos de mes 3 SR. Les caches latéraux IMOLA sont sublimes.
I got the rear luggage rack. Very pleased with the quality and design. I made some mods for a good fit to my SR400 FI: angled the rear attachment ears on the carrier to make the bracket parallel to the seat grab bars; installed a 3/8" rubber spacer between the bracket and carrier and bolted it down with larger stainless Allen bolts and nylon lock nuts. Now fits its perfect and looks sorted. Also riveted a stainless steel footman's bracket (from a sailing supply) to the front and rear tubing to run a strap through for my briefcase; very secure; also holds a 2-gallon plastic gas can securely.
Excellent product; looking forward to a new seat in September.
The products of OMEGA RACER are made with passion. Markus is the perfect partner to take care of ones questions and orders. The fast delivery lets you build your project in time.
Hi Markus, my mandello seat arrived in just over 1 week which was quicker than expected. The quality and looks are great and fitted perfect.Haven't been for a long ride yet but initial thoughts are slightly higher than stock and comfort has been improved. Just the style i was looking for.
I just wanted to write and thank you for the extra attention in ensuring my seat was sent. It arrived yesterday, and it's just the thing to bring back an old Bonnie.Great quality, the colour is perfect, and it installed with no effort. Now I'll have to find some proper saddlebags to match it. Again, my many thanks
The large fairing came well protected and with a well made bracket as well as mounting hardware that made installation quite simple. The polish on the fairing was so perfect I had to go back and re-polish my tank and tail to make them not seem so dull! Also the price was awesome for such great work.
Thank You for a great fairing to finish my bike.
Thank you Markus for that beautiful fuel tank and extraordinary service. Omega Racer "a man a word" super friendly service, good quality, well packed, fast delivery, great customer service. I highly recommend Omega Racer.
Markus, the Navigator tank for my Triumph is absolutely outstanding!! Well done & perfect.. I can only hope to keep it as perfect as it arrived... I'll be sending photos as soon as the bike is built.
Ho preso un serbatoio in alluminio, di cui sono molto soddisfatto.
Sarà la base dalla quale voglio partire per customizzare la mia w650.
Ringrazio Markus, persona disponibile e veloce a rispondere alle mail.
Ordered the Rocker v2 seat for my Xs400. Within hours of ordering, I received a notification that the package had been shipped and the package arrived in less than 2 weeks. I have to say that the quality is top notch. Easily as good as seats that are double the price. Best of all is Markus' customer service. My inquiries were responded in almost immediate fashion. Do not hesitate to order from OR. A+ experience!
Just received my supertrap style silencer from you and have fitted it to my 1980 Yamaha SR500. After a lot of dollars spent on stainless steel silencers, I finally have one that is not too loud. It has a nice deep note without that characteristic bark of a megaphone.
I absolutely love it. It represents great value, I wished I had bought this in the first place.
The one element of the SR500 that really did not appeal to my eye is the stock seat. So, to remedy the situation, I ordered what's called a "touring" seat from Omega Racer in Thailand. I selected this particular style of seat because I'm not modifying my bike to a cafe racer style or a "bobber" style. The shape and line of the seat happened to appeal to me. So, being cheap, I ordered the seat and selected "surface" for shipping. If you use surface shipping for an item like this, be prepared for an 8 week delivery time (to the USA). I expected that it would take a long time to get to me given that I ordered it during the Christmas and New Year holiday season. I was pleased to see it arrive 8 weeks on the dot. By the way, Markus was great to work with and communicates very well via email.
Overall, it has the look I was going for and I'm pleased with the fit and finish of the seat. Also, Omega Racer is good to work with and I plan on ordering a couple of additional items from Markus in the near future.
I'd like to say a very big thank you for the Harley 883 tank I bought. It was a while ago, and before they started offering them on their website. The team at Omega Racer were nothing but helpful during the back and forth emails with measurements and requirements. The result was a tank that fits as good as it looks, right down to the petcock being in exactly the same place and the handlebars not touching the tank dimples. It gets compliments everywhere I go.
Thought I'd show you some pics of the Triumph seat I ordered through you...thanks so much. It is really well made and has fantastic detailing. The spray and cloth were a nice touch as well. All in all, absolutely chuffed!
At first, it started with a very friendly and helpful communication. I ordered Alu side covers, which were sent quickly and well protected and covered. They fit and look great. All in all, I am happy with the shop and I am happy with the parts. Thank 's !!!
ordered rear rack for 2015 sr400. looks nice, however, does not come with installation instructions, but it's not too difficult to figure out. one point: does not come with everything needed to install; i had to go out and purchase 2 nuts and bolts to attach the rear brackets. other than that, so far, so good.
Ho acquistato il portapacchi per la Yamaha SR il 30 ottobre.
Il giorno 9 era già a Milano.
Sdoganato il 20 novembre, mi è stato consegnato il giorno 24.
Prima e dopo l’acquisto, Markus si è prodigato per fornire tutta l’assistenza possibile:
consigli sulla spedizione e aggiornamenti meticolosi sulla consegna del pacco.
Una squisita gentilezza nella tradizione tailandese.
Con Paypal ho speso 105.00$ per il portapacchi e 48.54$ per la spedizione, pari a 144,71€.
Al postino ho pagato 25,85€ di tasse. Più precisamente:
0,00€ di dazio
20,35€ di IVA -su 92,48€ di valore dichiarato-
5,50€ di spese di sdoganamento.
Totale complessivo 170,56€.
Il portapacchi è realizzato con molta cura e precisione.
Potrebbe benissimo essere un ricambio originale Yamaha.
Al fianco del maniglione originale, infatti, non si nota alcuna differenza, anzi sembra una naturale prosecuzione.
Il montaggio è relativamente semplice e intuitivo.
Unico difetto, peraltro rimediabile, sono i supporti posteriori tra portapacchi e maniglione.
Realizzati in robusto ferro zincato, non sono proprio il massimo per un prodotto eccellente.
Inoltre, nella confezione mancano sia i perni anteriori –meglio metterli più lunghi, che perni e bulloni posteriori.
In complesso, un prodotto che consiglio caldamente a tutti!
Salut Markus et toute l'équipe, super le réservoir Norton pour ma W650 super travail d' artisan, merci pour le porte clé!
Je vous envoie des photos des que j ai modifié ma selle, je dois la raccourcir.
Markus was so easy to deal with. I sent him an email with some custom modifications to one of their tanks and he had it made and delivered within weeks. The products are top notch.
Received the W650 seat cowl and front fender. Both look great! Markus, thanks for your help in getting the upholstery done in the requested brown color.
Now, I'll be ordering a tank. Thanks.
Just got and installed my Type 1 windshield for my 2015 SR400 -- could NOT be happier -- makes all the difference in the world and makes the bike look so much better. Took a while to put on - but well worth the effort -- product came quickly and well packed -- highly recommend this vendor
Excellent seller, Great custom seat and professional in processing of buying and information between sending.
Very very recommended.
The exhaust came in and it sounds/looks beautiful!
Thanks for all the help -- great customer service. I will most defiantly be a repeat customer.
Just received the new single seat for my SR400 and it's absolutely fantastic! Fits great, just what I was looking for. Thanks for the super-quick postage and great customer service.
Thank you Markus and team for making up a custom fitted tank for my 96 Sportster. Quality and service are top notch! I'll be putting photos up when the bike is finished (could be a while)

Hi Markus, the Omega Racer Parts arrived for the W650 OMG !!! They are absolutely perfect !!! So very happy with your service and eye to detail... the seat cowl, the tank , big fairing ,and clip ons fitted perfectly. I will send a photo next couple of days, just having exhausts fitted up high to finish the Norton Manx look.

Many thanks Markus a fantastic experience. I loved the 'Thank you' note...smile-inducing
Thanks for all your help Markus, the fuel tank http://omegaracer.com/parts_store/prod_2385053-Yamaha-SR-Aluminium-Tank-Vallelunga.html (even more custom without the elbow rests and to fit a W650, if you have any qualms guys don't Markus is very helpful and has a can do attitude), front and rear mudguards arrived today looking amazing, can't wait to fit them, will post pics when I do..
Hi Markus, I received the Elders Xbone helmet and was very pleased. This is a good substitution for the old Bell Motos if you are going for that retro look.
Hej Markus, jag har nu mottagit hjulen du skickade den 25juli. Jag är mycket nöjd! Tack. Jag kommer inom tid att åter kontakta dig för ytterligare beställning.
Merci Markus !

The delivery is super fast and with neat package.
I hope we will do business often.
I ordered the cooling fins; I want an "old school" way to keep the cilinder head in normal working temperature after changing some parts in the engine. Very good service. Can I upload some pictures?
Nice, not very expensive, great quality and very fast. Thank you !!
I'm happy with the service's especialy the communication,shopping across country need trust and communicative interaction and OMEGARACER done it! Now i've just to wait my item,recommended shop and seller
Fast shipping! Don't be intimidated by the distance. I ordered a tank and it arrived faster than it would have taken me to get a local guy to fabricate it. Great job, Omega Racer!
Great products and customer service! I approached Omega Racer with an idea for a new product, and within a week Markus had it in production. I purchased the Dunstall Lowline tank for my SR500 and I was shocked at the quality and fit. Well done, Omega Racer!
Well Done Guys another top quality part,just received SR Cooling Fins,brillant high polish finish,well made,look GREAT thanks again
I Would highly recommend this product & supplier.

I ordered the SR Tracker Seat to the UK less than two weeks ago and received yesterday. Bolted straight on, no trouble. Great fit, excellent communication and fast delivery. Thanks Omega Racing.
Once again, a GREAT service and product quality. Dealing with you is always the best way to know you are paying good stuff and service. BTW, thanx for the stickers, straight to the Wall of Glory!
I ordered the LED Vincent/Miller style stop light. Couldn't find the LED with red lense ANYWHERE but here, and it cost less than any of the other sites!! The light got to me in the U.S. in just under 2 weeks! Stoked!!
Ich möchte mich auf diesem Weg noch einmal über die tolle Abwicklung bedanken.
Ich kann nur sagen das der Tank SR "Das Original" wirklich super verarbeitet ist , perfekt passt und Spitzenklasse aussieht. Auch die komplette Abwicklung mit Omega-Racer ist problemlos, wer also vor hat da was zu bestellen, nur zu. Von mir gibt es eine 1A Empfehlung....
PS: Du kannst gerne ein Bild vom montierten Tank aufdeine Website stellen.
WOW, WOW, WOW... Omega Racer is the best company I have ever dealt with, If your thinking about using this company you wont be disappointed.
Marcus has fantastic PR skills and knows how to treat his customers.
I ordered an SR tank but wanted it to fit a W650, to most this would just be a straight "NO, we don't do that" but to Marcus it was a breeze. Nothing was too much trouble. The end product (Arrived yesterday after just 10 days) was well wrapped and exactly as described. It was a piece of art and the workmanship was second to none. I feel like buying another W650 just so I can order another tank.
Keep up the good work. Graham
I ordered the seat on December 26 and arrived on Jan. 10, sending very fast, very nice product.very good communication
A pleasure to do business with you.
I ordered the Yamaha SR Seat - Tracker - Black/Ripped for shipping to France on December 16th 2013, the order was sent out on the 18th, and I just received it today (2nd Jan 2014), so pretty quick considering the Christmas period. The seat is perfect! Thanks Markus.
Hello! I receive your tank today, it's perfect .I'm very happy. Thank you. I'll make a new order soon.
Grazie mille Markus,
la sella è perfetta è arrivata molto velocemente e le spese di sdoganamento sono state contenute.
Grazie anche per tutte le domande a cui hai risposto.
Complimenti x il Businnes.
Many thanks Markus, the front drum looks fab and arrived really quickly. Top man!
Got my xbone helmet and I love it! Thank you!
hi. laurent from france. my order was a norton style alloy tank and a blue toolroll. after many many questions ( sorry markus) my order is arrived and I m very happy . the tank is for a cb450 and markus help me to adapt it to my bike (2 petcoks for example).no problem with the toolroll and thanks for the gift (keychain)
I thank Markus for your patience, with which he has answered my many questions, serious and competent in his work, just yesterday I received, after 10 days of waiting, my beloved XBONE, I was blown away by the beauty of the helmet.
I pointed to the site omegaracer.com to my friends, most definitely will buy soon.
hello, sorry for my bad english (I'm french), just perfect I received the saddle in less than a week, very good product, responds to my expectations, I bought one to change sv 650.
thank you thank you thank you thank you.
I spent nearly 6 months trying to find a tank for my SR500 Café Racer. The Thailand eBay vendors were the best, but did not have what I wanted. There is a language barrier, and I couldn't communicate my desires well enough to justify spending the money. Then, I found Markus and Omega Racer!
He has a direct link to these great craftsman in Thailand, and was able to build me the EXACT tank that I wanted. Once it was finished, it arrived in a week to the USA. His prices are fair, communication is great, and his customer service is perfect. Check out his store and his blog!
...found this beautiful site per accident today. great stuff you guys have to offer! As I have my SR project in mind since a while, I will become a customer in the near future for sure.
Und nachdem ich mich ein wenig eingelesen hab:
sieh´an der Markus is ´n Landsmann. Wenns Dich also mal nach Sukhothai verschlaegt, komm gerne auf ein Kaffee vorbei und ich mach Dich mit ein paar Jungs bekannt die hier sehr gepflegt am Schrauben sind.
What an great company to deal with, Marcus is helpful, replies promptly to emails and requests, has great products and doesn't charge the earth to ship them to you.
I received my parcel quickly (I am French) and the product is good quality. Thank you very much Markus
Very very good quality for my new cafe racer brown seat . It was exactly what I want !!!
I'm so happy and Markus is a good guy !
Sorry for my English, i'm French......

I Ordered a a beatiful seat for my SR 500 which arrived after just 8 days in Switzerland! Sweet Quality and very friendly contact.
Thanx again Markus !
Elders helmet received today - great product that is exactly as claimed.
Reliable service and will use you again for more ....
I'm from Singapore and was recommended by a fellow rider from Australia about Omega Racers.
Received my front full fairing from omegaracer today!!
Firstly I really wanna thank Marcus for his superb PR skills in constantly updating me through emails and even help to measure out dimensions that I requested!
When the fairing arrives, it was made with care and seems like given proper care from its shiny outlook! All the products that come with the fairing are of high standards!! Super impressed!!
I highly recommend anyone to try them out!! Definitely will order again!!
Markus and Omega Racer were great! Was a little bit sceptical about ordering online from overseas because I had been scammed once before so I ordered one shirt to test them out and Markus emailed me throughout the entire process keeping me informed. I received my shirt and everything was perfect. So I ordered 6 more shirts and got the same result. The fit and quality of the shirts were perfect as well. A trustworthy company with good quality products and freindly service!
i Ordered a custom painted helmet and a already great Elders painted one for me and my bro..
The helmets arrived yesterday and both me and my brother are super pleased with them. I have already got Q´s about were to buy them so hopefully can we help you with marketing Omegaracer.com in Sweden. To bad for us is that the winter won´t let the spring come yet. So it has only been tested with my 1974 Yamaha snowmobile :-)
Thx for all and i will shop from you again. Patric
Just got my helmet (xbone) here in the US and couldn't be more impressed. The helmet is made quality and the paintwork is awesome! I got concerned with how long it took to get through customs and markus was great at communicating and helping me figure it out. I would definitely recommend and buy from again. Thanks again !
Hi, Bill from Montreal again,
I got the Sr500 rearsets today for my vintage racer. I'm really impressed for the quality of these parts and they're beautiful too!
Thanks again to Markus
Now I have to work some overtime to get that half fairing!
Markus was very helpful from the start and went out of his way to clarify any points asked. he even went as far as taking the time to package the seat and yoke so well that it took me a long time to unwrap! it's greatly appreciated as they had a long way to travel and could easily have been damaged! Great service Markus, Thanks.
got my metal flake xbone today !
loved it ,good quality all over ,fast service ,and Markus was very fast on getting back on email.
will order more helmeths
Hi,Bill from Montreal,
I ordered the Stinky style Aluminum gas tank for my SR500 vintage race bike. Markus was quick with a response and it arrived yesterday. I fitted it today with no problems and to say it is beautiful would be an understatement. I wouldn't hesitate to buy again from Omega Racer!
Customer from Denmark.
Ordered my Xbone flat black a couple of weeks ago, and within 10 mins. i got a response from Markus.
Absolut top service and feedback.
Markus answered all my questions, and assured me that shipping to Europe was no problem.
Sure enough, shipping and handling was no problem, and i received my new helmet as fast as ever.
The Xbone is a great helmet.!
I´m very happy with it.
My head meassures 57,5-58,5 above the eyebrows, and the Medium fits me great.
If you are looking to buy the Xbone, go for it.!
Great looking lid, and great customer service.!
Ozzy here from Los Angeles California. I got my black metal flake X Bone helmet from Omega Racer and I couldn't be happier. The helmet is awesome and Markus at Omega Racer offered excellent costumer service. Packing and delivery were great too. I'll definitely will be getting more stuff from Omega Racer in the near future.
I bought many items from the site for my Manx style project and even requested for additionnal items not offered on the site.
Excellent service, packaging and delivery (reliable tracking online).
In addition, 02 boxes out of 3 escaped the customs.
Thanks Markus, long live Omega racer !
J'ai commander une selle pour sr c'est un super produit ,très satisfait ,vraiment rien à dire ,et reçu dans les délais indiquer .Merci beaucoup .
Perfect!!!!Thank you for your serious and all!!!!
To the next deal,
Xbone Helmet review from the Chopcult Forum, by user elsuavecito7. (added here by Omegaracer with permission of the author)
So my X-bone finally arrived on Saturday, but had to go pick it up yesterday morning since I wasn't home to sign off when it arrived...Let me start off by saying that I've never ridden with anything other than a half-helmet so I can't really compare it to any full-face or 3/4 helmets out there. I took it on a 2 1/2 hour ride yesterday out in the back-roads of my county's dairy country, so here's a quick review.
Price: $110 basic paint, $210 flake paint
DOT approved?: NO, it is not dot approved, but I would compare it to the better of the novelty helmets out there. It's not a flimsy P.O.S., but not DOT quality for sure.
paint: I got the dark red flake paint and have to say that I'm really impressed with the quality. It's not glittery and without depth like many helmets that claim to have a "flake" paint job. It has nice big flakes and has that 3D effect that the omega racer website mentions.
comfort/padding: the padding is kept to a minimum around the top of the head. About an inch thick. The thickest padding is on the cheek/jaw area and is about 3 inches deep and I have to say that after a long ride my jaw was aching and it was a relief the 2 times time I took it off on my stops. With that said, it could just be due to the fact that it's not broken in yet or that I've never ridden with a full-face before. The helmet fits really snug, not too loose, not too tight.
appearance: it doesn't make you look like a bobble head
wind lift: there is absolutely no lift from high winds which was awesome. the lid stayed on just the way it was before taking off, every time.
extras: I like that the strap has a chin rest, I think that's what helps the lid to not lift with the wind. Also the nifty quick release lever is pretty cool.
overall: I'm happy with the purchase, the helmet is not going to protect you like a Shoei. But it's comfortable, looks great, and I would trust it to help my noggin in a fall. The chin rest on the strap is a cool plus which helps when the 5 o'clock shadow starts to set in to avoid annoying scratching from the strap. For anyone looking for a cool, solid NOVELTY helmet, I would recommend.
After 1 month in use:
I've been using my Xbone for 4 weeks now and I have to say I'm still very glad with my choice in head gear. The soreness that I would have in my jaw bone after wearing it for long rides is no longer a problem and hasn't been, for the past 2 weeks. This leads me to believe that it was just a matter of breaking in the helmet. I'm still a huge fan of the chin guard as well. It still keeps the helmet from moving around with high winds.
Something I failed to mention in my review is my experience with Omega Racer, whom I purchased the helmet from. Markus at Omega Racer was extremely helpful and quick to respond to my emails. He updated me often and sent me pictures when my lid was painted and ready to be shipped. My helmet arrived promptly and there was a black leather key holder thrown in with my order. Awesome customer service and a great lid.
I just wanted to tell you how happy I am to have these brackets, They're perfect in every way. I wanted to assure you that I am completely satisfied and will recommend you at every opportunity.
I've just received my order today and i just want to thank you for your products.
The seats are very cool !!
I wish you a good end of the world, LOL !
I have received my helmet. Thank you for the quick response and great service. Will order again soon.
I've received the first part of my order in good conditions and I thank you(nice stuff !)
I just got my helmet....fits awesome. Thanks!
