Looking for carbon fiber parts

I am looking for some carbon fiber parts for a 2004 ZX12. Specifically, I would like the ram air tube covers and instrument cluster infill. After many hours of searching on line I have found only two companies that produce both of these parts - HF Carbon in Germany and ECC Racing in Hong Kong which has an eBay store. Does anyone have any experience with either of these companies? Also, is anyone aware of any other company that produces both of these parts? In the past, some carbon builders would produce the ram air cover and instrument cluster surround as a single unit. I don't care if each side is one piece or two.

Here is a list of places I have checked:

Yoyodyne. I tried this guy about a year ago. I sent multiple emails and left many voice mail messages. No response. I think He just imports Sebimoto stuff.

Sebimoto. Appears to have discontinued ZX-12 ram air covers.

Carbon Aramid Construction. Web site off the air. Looks like they are only on Facebook now. I am not on Facebook and have no intention of joining.

Geelong Carbon Craft. Another one with the web site off the air. Facebook only.

MDI Carbon. Ram air covers for 02-06 only, not instrument cluster infill.

Moto Composites. Have instrument cluster infill but not ram air cover for 02-06.

Carbon Fiber Racing. Ebay store now. Only instrument cluster infill available.

Zero Limits. Have 00-01 ram air covers only.

FF Carbon. Have 00-01 ram air covers only.

These guys have none of the parts I am looking for:

ZWMoto Ebay store.
Debotech. On line store is gone.
Bestem Carbon
Nicecycle
Oya Carbon
Fat 300 Custom Cycles
Sebimoto
Cream Carbon

One choice would be to purchase the ram air covers from one manufacturer (e.g. MDI Carbon) and the instrument cluster infill from another (e.g. Carbon Fiber Racing) I would prefer to avoid this if possible since the carbon fiber might have a different pattern. It looks like I should have done this five years ago when there were still a lot of builders producing carbon fiber parts for this bike.

I've got the under nose intake, ram air covers and the sides for the console left and right all from them in carbon




As you can see from the pics the general fit of them all is spot on

I bought dash panels from hfcarbon.de. Lead time was 5 weeks, VAT was refunded after purchase since I am not a German resident.
Quality is top notch, and I was happy to be given the choice between plain and twill weaves (I chose twill). I think I also had a choice
between matte and gloss, but I got gloss which I think is the default choice. I installed them one week ago.

I may have inadvertently added a few more carbon bits

I only buy from A-Tech, Magical Racing, and Cleverwolf now. However, I have purchased items from Sebimoto and Bestem, both are acceptable and relatively inexpensive.
