Thanks, here it is pretty much finsihed

i had a little unfortunate event, freaking sanded though the carbon fiber on one spot. Really however I came up with something WWII P40 inspired. Ive got left over carbon fiber, i just dont want to put another weeks worth of work into this right now.

For my first time using this stuff, I think I did well. The hardest part is laying the carbon fiber down evenly where you want it and then working from there. The next time Ill choose something with less curves

Sullivan, Nice rebuild. The part I'm most interested in is the hugger/chainguard. In retrospect would it have been better to seperate the two before applying the CF? My hugger has ripped and I thought about using CF to repair it.

TIA,
Brad

What do you mean by separating the two?

My hugger broke away from my chainguard. This would be my first time working with CF and wondered if I should patch the two together before applying CF or afterwards.

Ahh. Well honestly Idk how that would look, being two pieces. I would connect them somehow maybe using fiberglass, and then sand that down and then add the carbon fiber. The carbon fiber really strengthens the guard up. My chain guard broke when i wrecked too

Thanks man, just installed some new mirrors to get rid of the stock ones. Cleaned up the front end. The bike came stock with mounts on the handlebars for aftermarket mirrors

hmmm.... gloss black stripe down the front fender? Might tie the fender into the nose/screen more. Or maybe a gloss red stripe/arrow/triangle? Maybe red on just the side/vertical part of the front fender? I dunno, just seems like it needs some red on the fender or nose/screen to kinda tie it together. Right now it's just a red tank on a black bike.

Do those new mirrors clear the screen? I mean, i assume they do, but I wouldn't think they would. Wait... sport bars... I guess they would.
Is it weird with one mounting farther forward and different angle than the other?

Not EXACTLY legal, but little red "city lights" in the front turn signals would look cool. The turn signal would completely drown them out when needed.

The mirrors do clear the screen, they are mounted equally, it just looks off like that in the photo since the handlebars are turned.

Im very happy with the new mirrors compared to stock. To top it all off too, I sold one 650 mirror for $15, and bought these for $15. lol
