I am not too sure that the front brake line routing is correct, Looks like under fork compression the lines may get into the tyre?

what does FWIW mean?
thank you for your concern.
I prefer to drill the holes out to 6mm then use a long allen screw to pass all the way through the swingarm to a nyloc nut on the other side. Will never come loose then.

That's how the 990 cables are routed... mine are the same way.

Yes, from the factory, with a low fender to protect the hoses from the tyre...... but once that low fender is removed the hoses are not protected.

So the hoses should run the other side of the forks?

Have you tried moving the forks through full travel to observe the behaviour of the hoses? Take the handlebars off and loosen the fork caps?

I thinks that's the right way, the high fender forces the hoses to make a curve to the outside when the fork is compressed.

Your CF items look great. One caution, it appears you are using epoxy resin for your finish products. If it is room temperature cure resin, it probably has a "low Service Temp use" Which means at higher temperatures the epoxy resin may become soft and your lay up will delaminate and the the part will fail under load. This is a particular concern with your side stand relocator bracket. Also be careful putting high loaded drilled holes too close to the edge of your laminate. In a high loaded part like the relocator bracket, when you drill holes into CF or fiberglass you compromised the fiber strands that must carry the loads. The best way to solve this is to put steel or Titanium inserts in your lay up to preform your holes, as then the fiber strands are not interrupted . Don't use aluminum as aluminum and CF create a galvanic reaction over time.
Epoxy resins that cure in a oven @ 350F have a service temperature in the 500 degree F range. Room temperature cure epoxys have ST around 200 F. That why polyester resin is used for heat shields and such.
Knowing the loads on the side stand I would not trust CF in that design.

If your not using epoxy excuse all of the above. Nice job on your mold making. Love your skid plate.

Ran it on a go-kart track. Flogged it like it was stolen. The results below:

Bike: 950A, 8 y.o. in Nov, 57,000 miles, ATF in forks.
Rider: 59 y.o., gray hair in helmet. First time on this track.
Same tires I used on Montana grand tour this summer, 4000 miles.

The only other bike that was close was a well-ridden Triumph 675. I lapped all the other bikes.

Amazing bike, lots of fun, does almost everything well, and some things better than some would expect it should!

Nice work, great sump guard and exhaust shield. A concern using CF for the side stand relocater, don’t want to sound like I’m being biased. CF is an amazing material, but it’s kind of a has designed directional strength..I looked at making one using CF but my engineering guru said it would have to be individually designed, spun and moulded...I looked at a different design but the coast for both would have been too high...so other options of exotic alloys or titanium... again cost is high but uniform strength. Point is the side stand assembly is a heavy lump of metal to start bouncing down the freeway.

I think it is a hitch for a single wheel trailer similar to a motomule unit or something

Geek, 1Bonehead has it correct. I love the Moto Mule design. But, I'd rather work at building my own, than actually spending my day job's money toward buying one (no offense, Mr. Bracket). I like to fabricate and "make it my own."

It does look like a chock. But, what you saw in the pic has been scrapped and I'm going with a through-the-axle design instead. Those lugs are built, as I learned today, to support the rear for a bike stand but they may not hold up to stresses from a trailer.

I'll get more pics up as I progress.
