New chain and sprockets fitted today to complement the new wheels . A bit of a colour difference! .

Looking stunning - the wheels are ace - really unique.

Carbon chain guard and contrasting sprocket cover and nuts - finish the back end a treat

Can't find a carbon chain guard anywhere, gloss plain weave.

Or...



Slightly cheaper at 72 (before postage) but with a 4-6 week wait.

Thanks. The painful thing is the high prices versus the size of the chain guard. Best get doing some overtime

The worst bit is usually trying to match the exact weave of any existing carbon

Fitted one of those to my Evo 3 weeks ago, the sticky strips they give you are not the best, suggest using a very small amount of silicon as well as the strips. And yes the rear wheel must be removed to fit.

I think that looks better . Had to cut the original off as it was part of the swingarm chain runner . No sticky strips, not sure where you would stick them ?

You need tank panels next and rear sub frame too.

Looks good against your new wheel colour, Doggy. Looks like the weave is a good match for your hugger too. I think the idea is to stick the carbon guard on top of the plastic one using the same mounting bolt. I would have done what you did though and cut the original guard off.

Left the original chain guard on, just removed the rear wheel, cleaned the original part of chain guard with brake cleaner, undid the 1 retaining screw, applied the sticky strips, placed over original part of the chain guard and replaced the screw and then the rear wheel.

I had these red panels I bought off of Geoff painted up in Ducati Corse colours .Had the tank grills painted black also instead of silver . Fitted them with a carbon mudguard also bought from him . I fitted it all with the little red frontcowling, but think I prefer it with the small carbon clock cover . After the expense of buying the panels etc and having them painted I'm not 100%sure I like it!, from the side it looks like too much black? I guess it will grow on me! . At the moment I think the white is my favourite .
