Nelson Rigg Cover Fitment Guide

These sizing guidelines apply to the Nelson Rigg Falcon Defender and Deluxe All Season covers

Use the photos and information below to help you determine what size cover would be best for your motorcycle. If you would like further confirmation on sizing before you purchase, contact Nate with your motorcycle make/model/year including any luggage or aftermarket accessories you have that could potentially affect cover sizing.

Size Medium on a Suzuki GSXR1000
  • Should also work on Ducati Monsters, Honda CBR500R, CBR600F4i, CBR600RR/1000RR, Kawasaki Ninja 250R, Ninja 300R, Ninja ZX6R/RR, Suzuki GSXR600/750, Yamaha R6 and R1
  • OEM/Stock license plate brackets that protrude far beyond the rear tail light (like the CBR1000RR 2008 and up models) may not fit in this size
  • Luggage like saddlebags will require going up a size
Size Large on a Kawasaki ER6N
Size Large on a Kawasaki Versys
(If saddlebags were being used size X-Large would be necessary)
Size Large on a Kawasaki ZRX1100
Size Large on a BMW R65
(This is a tight fit but the customer went with size large because he does use the motorcycle without the windscreen from time to time. Size XL would be a looser fit and give full coverage to the ground. If you have the BMW R100 you will need the XL)
Size Large on a Triumph Bonneville T100
(This 2005 Triumph Bonneville has low bars with bar-end mirrors and saddlebags)
  • Should also work on Ducati Hypermotard, Honda VFR800, Kawasaki Ninja 650R/Versys, Z1000, ZRX1100, Suzuki SV650/1000, Yamaha FZ6/FZ6R/FZ1
  • Luggage like saddlebags may not affect the size choice on the ER6N but motorcycles on the larger side of the size large spectrum like the ZRX will require going up a size
Size X-Large on a Suzuki Hayabusa
  • Should also work on Kawasaki ZX14R, Suzuki B-King
  • May also work on some small cruisers with no windscreens
Size X-Large on a Ducati ST3

Even though this customer does not cover their ST3 with the saddlebags on, they were kind enough to send us pictures of the ST3 with the saddlebags installed to show just how tight the fit is.

Size X-Large on a BMW G650GS
  • Should also work on BMW F650GS and F800GS
  • Luggage like saddlebags will most likely prevent this size from fitting
  • Rear/top trunks will require size XXL
Size X-Large on a Suzuki Burgman 400
  • Should also work on Kymco Exciting 50, Yamaha Majesty
  • Backrest pads will prevent this size from cover the exhaust
  • Luggage like saddlebags will most likely prevent this size from fitting
  • Rear/top trunks will require the XXL size

Unfortunately we are all sold of the XX-Large size in this Defender 3000 cover, we are using these photos for sizing reference.
Nelson Rigg discontinued the Defender 3000 (Grey/Silver) and continued production on the Black/Silver version of this cover, the Defender 2000 which has all the same features and quality, it’s literally the same exact cover besides the color. So if you need size XX-Large, check out the Defender 2000.

Size XX-Large on a Honda Goldwing
Size XX-Large on a Ultra Classic
  • The XX-Large size works on the following motorcycles with or without the rear top trunk; BMW R1200GS, Honda ST1100/1300, Kawasaki Concours 14, Suzuki V-Strom, Yamaha FJR1300
  • The XX-Large size is your only option if you have a rear top trunk regardless of what motorcycle you have, even the Suzuki Burgman scooter with a rear top trunk needs the XX-Large.
  • Should work on mid-full size cruisers with windscreens and luggage
