What colour front fender

Guys,

I have a 2000 F4 which has many Casoli carbon fibre parts fitted. The carbon fibre is quite a fine weave.

The front mudguard has sustained laquer damage and I therefore have two options that I am pursuing. These are:-

1. Repair to the Casoli mudguard.
2. Fitment of a 1000 mudguard in red.

I have attached photos of the bike with the Casoli mudguard and also one with the 1000 mudguard in red placed on the front of the bike.

Thoughts which would look better would be appreciated please.

Thanks

Stuff like that is always a personal choice but for what it's worth, I'd go with the Carbon one too.

Cheers guys, just out of interest, what about a red / carbon mix like this one??

I would have to utilise the spoiler from my original carbon one

the later gets my vote. I was going to say that carbon bottom with red top is best, but you figured it out already.

Yes that is TWTG IMO. I had it just like that on my 1000S and it looked fine.

Reclear the carbon one. The visual flow is vastly superior with it as opposed to the red. Red one stands out too much. Red/carbon is horrible IMO.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.
