Did you just run your crossover brake line up the fork, under the fender mount, and back down the other fork?

I got a longer bolt where the stock line descends down towards the wheel. ( Bike right, under the handlebar) and ran two new dedicated lines ( mx style) to each caliper...... Have a look here...

Ah man, I'm sold....!

It looks killer. If you decide to make a set to sell from those molds, I'd be 100% in. I'm eager to ditch the hugger.

Damn standard ABS on the new bikes.....all the lines are swagged to hard lines going to the ABS module....

I'm liking this solution so far, the only caveat is sticky mud.

How will that half fender cope with being flung with heavy mud, enough flex to have it hit the rad guard on impact? Also, without a fender extending forward, getting nailed in the face with mud doesn't sound fun.

I rode thrugh water....rocks.....and mud, and flung it all at the fender. Did not face it...so t speak. You can hit it with a hammer if you like. It did not hit the rad guard.

Oh it's in now.... Just found out a friend of mine who owns a turbo shop has all the materials left over from when he used to do fiberglass and CF work!

He said I'm welcome to them, and he'll help me if I get stumped.

Time to start carefully reading ebrabaek's tutorials!

Will do.

First on the menu, hugger fender elimination.

I think those fork guards look like a good first project.

I have a KTM fender I can run for now.
