Just got this kit done, would like to know if there is any interest. Pictures show the parts just finished, still in natural aluminum finish. I can deliver these in hard anodized black (or polished...or whatever).
If there are interested members I need at least 5 confirmed orders so I can start. Once I have them confirmed, I can have them at your door in about 2 weeks.
Now to the pricing, if I have 5 preorders, pricing is $360.00 shipped CONUS. If I happen to get 10+ orders, price will be $330.00 shipped CONUS. This is in the black hard anodized finish.
I apologize for the mistake, the finish on this kit will be POWDER COATED...unless of course, somebody wants different. Thanks. JC.

That looks very nice! I like the cap that goes on the top of the fork tube that really finishes off the look. Do you need to raise the fork tubes above the top clamp much to be able to use the top cap?

I've never been around these before, so forgive my really stupid question please. But how do the lower covers work with the front suspension? Do the fork lowers slide up into these covers actually? Or where is the allowance for fork travel? Like I said, I know it's a stupid question, but the pics make it look like the lower cover fits just perfectly between the lower triple tree and the lower forks.

It looks like it slips over them, but I would be afraid of them binding up or hitting the fender. }:)

Lube it up, I guess.... };-)

They do look nice though.

No need to raise the fork tubes, as long as your tubes are in the factory position you have no problem. The caps have set screws that secure onto the "hex" cap of the tube. Thanks. JC.

Excellent question, the sliders do travel up into the covers, and there is NO problem with the fork travel. However, if using factory front fender, you do have to do some trimming on the sides of the fender to allow for the cover to travel. The clearance between the slider and the cover is tight but it doesn't rub. Thanks for your interest, JC.

well I'm very interested!

Can you post an example pic of how the fender needs to be trimmed? And when you say 'tight', hopw tight? I'm thinking of the potential for dirt and things to get gummed up in there and cause friction, resistance, or worse.

Still, very intested, these look killer.

I should have the pictures of the trimmed stock front fender by today's end. As far as the clearance, this is not an issue, i mean a "tight fit" in the sense that it doesn't look overly bulky and ugly but rather streamlined and clean... nothing that will cause problems, unless you take yours off roading...lol,

Interested in black as well, glossy. I know, it may be a bit of work, but would you mind putting a vid on the installation, clearance, look etc together? That could really help clearing up some questions. Thanks!
