Here ya go! The upper fork tube is too long by 11/16''. Other people were cutting it off of the top of the tube. I was gonna do it like that but since the tubes are tapered. If you cut it there, the diameter would be bigger then the diameter on the tree and you would see the cut. I increased the notch on the bottom of the upper tube.

Thanx man!! I'm digging the looks of your scoot as well! Cant wait to see it painted!!

I got the rim and the 200 is comin on wednesday!

As far as installing them. They weren't too bad. Just some precise cutting and you have to tap your lower trees. These covers were in great shape when I got em.

I wrapped tape around the entire upper fork cover. Then I removed the forks. Held it under the upper tree and marked the bottom of the tube. Drew a line on the tape and I cut it free hand with an air sawzall. Filed my cut a little till they fit tits. Then slid the fork back through the covers and the trees. It's important to put the forks back in temorarily so you can mark the holes through the covers mounting tab onto the tree. Take forks back out, then drill and tap the tree. Then put the whole mess back together!! Another reminder.. do not hit the front brake while the wheel is off!!

We went out looking at a couple houses in Pa today. Port Jervis, NY & Matamoris, Pa are underwater. It was unbelievable. Looking from the hiway at some of the areas all you saw was the top couple feet of some houses.

Looks great . Really beefs up the front . Makes the front tire look skinny . You need to reroute those cables behind the trees . I think you really notice them now . Great job . I am sure you find others wanting to do the same after seeing this .
