Maybe shorten up the back fender a bit more? I quite enjoyed the front fender in the more dirtbike position. Ive been wanting try try a front fender that only extends behind the forks, not in front.

agreed.  you can't tell in the pics, but there's a dotted line of where i want to cut it off at, haha.  that would be interesting for a front fender, i wonder if you'd get any spray...

It looks good with the rear fender. And I agree that a little less of it would be better!

started on a heat shield today.  little more filing and it should be good to go.  steel frame with perforated aluminum inner.
