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.

I can not remember if the OEM bolt have that un-threaded section, I have the PRO-BOLT gold kit for my whole fairing. It is a nice touch....unless your name is bmiller123 ( whom is impartial to anything gold including Ohlins ):eek::pLMAO:D
Anyone else care to chip in !!??

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.

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).

I don't like those Phillips/flat head combo bolts at all. They seem to strip out too easily.

If you want a bigger head, you can get this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/230892540845?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

It's off the RC45 nose fairing, but maybe it will work?

MRcycles has it for $2.11:

I was ordering some other stuff from Honda of East Toledo for my ninja and added a couple of the bolts I linked above. I'll let you guys know if they will work for the nose fairing/rear cowl. I like allen heads 10x better than the stock ones at the front of the rear cowl.

Here is the part number: 90112-MT4-000 Apperently used on the cbr900rr also.

If you want a bigger head..........
Does every guy NOT want a bigger head ????:rolleyes::p:D
Duck- I agree with B.Miller- Gold Sucks!
Ask me if I really care Preston:p;):D I don't. Glad to have another fan though:D
Unless it's a solid gold brick falling from the sky...now that wouldn't suck unless of course it hit you on the head.
That......would be sweet.........unless it hit me in the head, either one.:eek:

Does anyone know if these would fit the RC?

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/HONDA-CBR600-2006-2005-FRONT-FENDER-VENT-CARBON-FIBER-HARRIS-PERFORMANCE-/290630452697?pt=Motorcycles_Parts_Accessories&hash=item43aaecc5d9&vxp=mtr

Because they are sweet and looks like a bit of a good deal...I read a thread somewhere on Speedzilla but I'm too lazy to search.
Yes, it will fit. Mounting holes look to be exactly the same, except for the front lower one has to be removed. I saw the thread where one was fitted too, can not remember where.:rolleyes:
One more thing bud, You mentioned an sp2 rear hugger the other day... you you said were working on something:confused: ,...... Care to explain this to me:confused: LOL
