After my front fender got cracked, I cut out just the middle of it and mounted it under the triple tree and beak. You can barely see it, but it blocks most stuff from being thrown up from the tire. ...

IRC TR8 front

I really like the IRC TR8 front tire. I got 5000 miles out of my last one. It has enough grip to drag the pegs on the street.

I had the dark for about a year. Unlit streets at night made it difficult to see the road thru the shield. I replaced it with a clear the second year. Other than that, no problems.

There is a method that Woody's wheel works documented in this thread on how to do it. I followed his directions. Cleaning was the most important thing. He also offers to do it for you for a price.
