    Hi,
    The carbon parts look good, are they really Carbon or are they plastic with Hydro Graphics and lacquer?
    regards martin

    I’m not 100% sure but pretty sure it’s real carbon. It’s definitely not dipped.

    How can you tell ,
    The plastic covering on the caliper link hose rubbed completely through the front “carbon mud guard” in 1500mls , no damage to the hose coating , as I said can you see a carbon weave on the unfinnishad back , that’s assuming carbon weave was laid up in a mold vacuumed and heated , there is also a lot of carbon injection moulded , (longer fibers = stiffer molding) plain gray look and hydro graphics give it the carbon look in your chosen weave, possibly a little harder than a hose covering,
    while your looking at each item try a magnet on you stainless wheel spokes .

    How do we know? Because that’s what we design and procure.

    Here is a raw carbon seat cowl inside and out

    Hi, John
    The topics been running for a month , I found a spare mud guard earlier, very nice so took some pics , if you look closely you can even see where the vacuum hose was attached .
