    Thx for the response all



    @Adam,



    I got my hands on a TW fender wich allready was cutted off on the frontside. The guy who original cutted the fender had made a straight cut in front and no cut off the back.

    I wanted to make a short fender wich was round in front and in the back but that was a difficult task because there was not enough fender left on the frontside to do so



    I placed my ori fender over the "cut"fender to get the blueprint ( don't know how to explain ). My English is not so perfect but if you have questions, just ask



    This is the short front :







    Here you can see the back of the frontfender where the round cut was possible. On the front you see it is more straight sadly We could not make a nice round cut, then there was barely

    any fender left







    And this is the only pic I have from the frontlight. If you want I will try to snap some more pics in the weekend

    Thx



    I got the pipe from a tw site on the internet for a nice price.

    It goes under the bike and pops up in front of the rear tire.

    The only problem was that it was unbelievably..........LOUD !!



    No silencer would shut it up I first tried a 20 cm silencer and it still was to much, i got a headache riding on it

    Also, the silencer was no good for the exhaustflow of the engine, the bike was like holding back.

    so at the end I stuffed it with some very crude steelwool and a universal DB killer so the airflow stayed optimal.

    Now it still sounds reasonably loud but very low so its a nice deep sound instead of the overkill noise it was before.



    grtz

    Also looks nice that fender - only not short enough for me.



    Thx for the Site Risin but I live in Europe - same cost for me as it comes from the US.



    Do you sell tw parts or do you just know a lot of contacts ?

    As I remember well you sometimes post stuff from Kitaco or Takegawa, I really like what these brands have for the TW.

    Or am I mistaken you with somebody else ?



    grtz
