Just took the passenger pegs off and I'm already sad that the rear end has lost some visual weight. I've said this before: I'm not a big fan of the bee stinger look on the tail, at least not for my bikes. Curious if anyone has installed something like the Carbonworld or Moto Corse rear mudguard and would be willing to post photos of the final product, installation, etc. Thanks in advance!

https://photos.app.goo.gl/MAqjHquHmLdRQuBF9 not sure if picture posted but I bought one off eBay..sling shot racing..I know it's not top of the line but I knew it was going to take a beating so I bought it..mounting was kinda simple. I removed the rear wheel to gain access to the factory plugs which were already in the swing arm. Rather than use well nuts and drilled the holes a touch bigger in the fender and installed it using push pins we use in automotive use (hold in fender liners and such) had to tap them in with a mallet . Been over 100 mph multiple times and over every kind of bump and it's still solid as a rock.

The "mud guard", or "hugger" pictured is a common part found standard on many brands of sport bikes and installed as an option on some that didn't come with one standard.

MV installed it as standard on some F4 models and offered it as an accessory for others.

Original F4 and Brutale 750s could be equipped with a MV accessory carbon fiber hugger by drilling holes in the swing arm for well nuts (instructions and well nuts included with the accessory).
Later bikes (like my 910R) came with the holes pre-drilled by the factory in anticipation of installation (so popular as an accessory it was/is). It was one of the first accessories I added to my 910R.
It came as standard equipment on my SPR F4 750.

Thanks all! I'm sold. Assuming the holes are pre-drilled on the 1078RR, but will confirm that tomorrow when there's more light and less BAC :friday:

Holes are pre-drilled, you will need the correct sized well-nuts which are easy to find.

Hey did I buy one from you WAAAYYYYY back? Yea I get stuff om my seat as well and often wonder if it works. Kinda sick of looking at it.

UPDATE: I purchased a new Corse hugger early on in 2009 from DiabloM3, he had a pearl white F4 at the time.

...and a very nice cush-drive/sprocket combo - back to the Gen1 versions....nicely done
Yes, that was pretty much needed in my mind. BDS kit. My sprocket was precessing pretty bad, and I had the extra oem dampers, but didn't want to replace them again in 3000 miles. This is better engineering and prettier, though pricey! I plan on keeping this bike a long time, figured she was worth it.
