    The right hand side tank guard proto has been laid up and is under vacuum, it will cure in the next few hours and I'll pull it from the mould tomorrow. The other side should be ready by Thursday.

    When making the production pieces I'll lay up both at once to save time but for the proto it's easier to deal with one at a time if any issues come up, luckily they haven't so far!

    I'm not sure, the mould was taken off an '02, I'll do some research and let you know.

    Finally, the Guards are ready. The moulds took a lot longer than I had hoped but they are both now good to go.

    I'll be contacting the people that have PM/emailed me and then offering them for general sale.

    Cheers,
    Michael

    No pictures of them on a bike yet unfortunatly, I've just posted a set to jrozar so hopefully he'll post up a pic when he recieves them.

    All,

    I've laid up the second set but have run out of Kevlar, I ordered some more a few days ago but for now I'm at the mercy of the USPS.

    I also ordered a few metres of orange carbon/kevlar hybrid cloth if anyone's interested;

    be aware that there are pre 2002 tanks that are 30 ltrs and may need modifying or cutting to fit (had to do i on my 01 30 liter with chris barnes product)

    Thanks for the info, do you have a picture or any more details? It would be good if I could cut them for pre 02 owners.

    Cheers,

    What i'm gathering from the pictures is that the petcock protection on the right is an extended ear that ideally we'd just drill through with a hole saw for access right?

    Orange carbon/kevlar? If you end up doing a set can you upload the picture? Us 02 silver adv owners are lacking some of the orange koolaid that was vomited all over the post 04 bikes, maybe this is my chance to fit in the "cool" kids :rofl

    Hi,

    Right now there is no petcock protection, the guards just follow the contours of the tank. I'm looking at adding it as an option but haven't got around to it yet. If there's enough interest I will, if someone wants to post up a pic of the petcock area with a ruler as reference that would help.

    I've ordered the orange carbon kevlar, I'll make a set with it as soon as I get it. I've never used coloured fabrics before so I'm interested in how it'll turn out too.

    Cheers,
    Michael

    I'm sure I'll have you on my list, PM me your name or email and I'll let you know a rough idea of when I can get them to you.

    The easiest payment is usually paypal, I'll send an invoice including shipping when it comes to it.

    Cheers,
    Michael
