Cover suggestions?

I'm looking for an all-weather cover for my Ninja and a lot of them look like they'd be too big for the bike. Does anyone have an all-weather cover that they really like and fits well?

I just got pair of these for my VFR and CBR: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0B5L1KM4T

There's adjustable straps that connect underneath that you can tighten up for smaller bikes.

I looked at the Amazon link. The design looks good. If it fits and works it only costs $25. It looks like it's worth a shot.
I'm on East coast DC area. Practically, no snow this year. Other years, not so easy. The better covers are from Nelson-Rigg and Dowco. Dowco makes one in motor scooter size. That's a short wheel base. It might fit.

i originally bought Nelson Riggs cover back in '86 for my VF. Looked them last year and quaility has gone downhill, lots. That's why got these.



Had some crazy weather extremes this year! Summer's over 110F and freezing winter with SNOW, in desert!! Covers have held up great!



Even got to do some snow riding!



Cover I really want is this one I got from Honda dealer. If anyone knows of one, please let me know, thx.

Thanks for the tip. They look like good covers. I just ordered 1.

That cover is so nice for Honda lovers (like me). Ten years ago, I had a CBR600 and I got that cover, but I gave it with the bike when I sold, which I always sadly regretted.
it's an indoors cover though.

Doesn't Honda do that one anymore?

I have the Dowco All Weather. it's expensive, like over $100.

I learned from the first one I got that the sun wears it out in about a year (I'm in Florida). So for the second, I bought a second cover, much cheaper and much lighter that I put on top of the heavy Dowco. That way, the sun kills the cheap one, which I replace every year or year and a half, and make the expensive one last several years and my bike is always dry and away from the sun.

I usually keep all my bikes inside.



Then I shuffle them to garage or outdoors to make room in workshop to do maintenance and upgrades. Cover's to keep sawdust and other project shrapnel off. New Honda cover looks like this, but no local dealers have it! I want to fondle it and touch it with my own hands first darn it!!! I guess I'll have to mail-order it and return if I don't like. Such hassle!
