yay or nay, what do you think

about my front fender. I went with f4i forks but I am not too crazy about f4i fender so I wanted something closer to 919s style.

I wasn't sure if I should've made the fender shorter or something. It started as VFR fender and looked like this before I began chopping



I haven't even tried f4i fender, it just looks too huge to me
anyone got pics of 919 with f4i fender?

Thanks everyone. It was pretty easy project: I revalve f4i forks with the guidance of local Ohlins dealer (thanks Jim), new springs and ohlins oil.
VFR fender got Rotozip treatment, I love that tool.

What's the line on the forks? I can't tell if that's a ziptie or not.

Could be, my guess would be that it was used to measure the full compression stroke and setting up the front end.

Have you tried any other fenders? What year VFR? After I get the Fox shock back my next is the front forks. Probably go with the F4i's or redo the stock ones. Looks good.

I haven't tried any other ones. I decided to go with VFR for those honda signature fender cutouts. It's 02-09 VFR800 fender. I got it for ~$20

haha, I know I know but c'mon, you have to admin, you do stare at her chest once in a while.

yeap, I already gather all parts for the next project, teaser pic below.
This custom top triple allows to run handlebars or switch to clip ons in 30 min.
It also allows one to use shorter cbr forks for front end conversion. 919 is no longer limited to hard to find rc51 front end.

What you did to the front of the fender is nothing short of awesome. Clean cut and looks great! The rear of the fender could use a bit of your cutting skills if you want to make it even closer to the original 919 shape. But it is already good as it is. Great job!
