Anyone purchased any carbon fiber from MDI-Carbon Fiber located in Ca.? If so, can you speak to the quality, customer service, etc?

Hi,
I purchased a key guard from MDI. Not to shabby of a product, Nice thick piece of material and the finish looks nice. Only time will tell on the clear coat!

The measure of good carbon fibre is in fact how thin it is and not in fact how thick.

Ideally it should be very thin and therefore weigh very little without compromising its integral strength in any way, it will 'if its is like the excellent quality carbon fibre CAG sells' be much stronger and also quite flexible too.

Most carbon Fibre that is sold these days is sold for its aesthetic look and the majority of folk who purchase it wouldn't know the difference between a top quality product or just something that is merely pleasing to look at.

Like everything in life if you pay 'peanuts' you get 'monkeys' and sometimes the saving of just a few pennies is false economy. All I can say from my own experience is that the parts I have seen from Carl have been 100% carbon fibre (Not the usual 'cheap ass' CF/FRP mix) and are beautifully finished off.​

Yup!

Carl's carbon is fabulous, i have a bunch of his CF parts and its heads and shoulders above the rest including the CF off Dave the_castle's CC #13......i have his lower chain guard, that Randarosa ran over as the last bike, on the last lap of the Bubbalicious track day:jsm:

Absolutely!
I have also purchased carbon products from Carl and they are top notch!
When I sad think material I didn't mean 1/2". I made the mistake of purchasing from bestem USA recently,sure the carbon was paper thin but you couldn't install it without trashing the clear coat. Total crap!
I think we all understand the cost involved in quality carbon and yes of course all of us SHOULD go that route. But if some of us new guys can't afford a $200 key guard want to make a short term athsetics decision it's OK! Its like a pro ball player pushing a little kid out of the way to go do his job, all the kid wanted to do was play ball! We can't dicourage it these are the new MV riders! And the MV's future.MV's are a passion a dream and in so many cases an unobtainable fantasy.
After all that same passon is why we're on this site.
One day I hope we all can afford a Tambo!
MDI Carbon is a reasonably nice alternative for the po folks.
