Use the stock SP as a template. Make a mock-up out of cardboard.

Just go to Google and type:

site:advrider.com "orange crush" [YOUR SPECIFIC SEARCH HERE]

So, for a bash plate, try:

site:advrider.com "orange crush" bash carbon

Or

site:advrider.com "orange crush" "sump guard" CF

Those searches will turn up numerous threads on carbon fiber bash plate builds.

I know that users Pete640 and Rade both build really nice carbon fiber bash plates. Check their threads:

site:advrider.com "orange crush" pete640 bash

Best of luck.

I copy/pasted the TT and used the steel frame. It reduced the weight drastical. Mine also only need to take gravelroads. No rockclimbing here.

Is that fella for a 990 or 1190? I have been trying to source a carbon fibre one for my 1190 without any luck so far....
