My JVB Moto Super 7 front mudguard arrived this week.

It arrived pretty quickly and was well packaged.
The quality of the fibreglass work is first class. Nicely finished edges, symmetrical and not one pinhole in the gelcoat.
The brackets are stamped from aluminium. All bolts, washers and nuts are stainless steel. The box also contained clearly illustrated and detailed fitting instructions.

Fitting was a relatively easy job and can be done without removing the front wheel. It might be a tight squeeze if you have fat fingers though!

Nice! Did you do the painting yourself? I noticed that you modifier the tail of the bike. I would like to do the same on mine. Would you mind putting some pictures and maybe some instructions on how you did it? Thanks a lot, cool bike!

Looks good but can't help but think the brake pipes and the rad look a bit vulnerable there without cover from below. Is it on backwards?

That's what I was thinking as well. Like it doesn't look bad at all but it just seems to still leave things exposed

The metal piece in between the fork sliders add stiffness and stability to the forks and direction. I would not take it out.

Thanks, I found it made little or no difference to the stiffness. It's there for cosmetic and styling reasons.
On the other hand, stopping the handlebar riser mounts from moving and wobbling around has greatly improved the steering accuracy, feel and stability.

It all seems OK. I competed in an event on the bike at the weekend. All day Sunday the weather was appalling, the surface loose with grit and small stones. The only side effect of the small mudguard was dirt baking onto the exhaust headers.

Oh okay so that's not too too bad. I mean it blocked majority of the grit and stones which is still purposeful

You did well to get hold of that, how did you manage it? All I can find is a load of "coming soon" messages...

Exhaust looks great two-tone as well. Did you paint that yourself too?
I just checked and it says "In Stock". Looks like you can order right now.

Yes, I painted the exhaust with VHT paint.
