Yuppers....own the front carbon fender and the tank guard.
No complaints here, IMO get em, can't go wrong.
Make sure you use the proper bolts on the front fender though or it MAY crack when tightened down. They have a small section 2mm or so with no threads right below the bolts head.

Yes I just got my front fender it's a used piece but in great shape...I wouldn't hesitate to order any other of their products.

I have never seen that one, looks cool. Thing with fenders is.....if the aero's are wrong, it affects the front at speed...Can even induce headshake.

The bolts you want are the same ones used on the bottom portion of the lower fairings. They are in the middle of it and towards the back by the footrest. I am pretty sure they are also what goes into the front of the stock fender.

They also work as good replacements for the Frankenstein bolts in the tail section.




I'm always right.

You can substitute the frankenstein bolts (item 23) with the shoulder bolts used at the front of the rear cowl (item 21).
That's how I did mine and it works just fine.

The same bolt also is used to secure the center of the front upper cowl (item 21).
