Having just taken delivery of my second MH900e after selling my first four years ago, I'm on the long process of tidying it up and making it mine. One of the things it has an issue with is the fork tops are corroded and the plating has lifted making them look messy. I'm going to get them remade in billet alloy so they will not get messy in the long term and can just be polished now and again. I have a fabricator who will make them but if we can get more takers, the price for a pair will go down. I did a group buy on the old forum for carbon fibre hungers which worked well. If anyone wants to join me in getting a pair of billet fork tops, let me know, I'll gauge interest and then we can get a price based on numbers.
I am also considering reproduction of the full carbon bodywork, t-shirts and possibly X-brackets assuming evolution engineering are no longer doing them so if you are interested in any of those, also let me know.

Hi JC Matsuura is making these in polished and anodized black, www.jcpakbikes.com.  I believe but am not certain that they fit our MH models.

Check him out he has helped me with my sport classics.

Hey mate,
I'd be interested in your fork caps if you go ahead - and possibly the carbon bodywork if funds allow.

I'm in for the billet fork tops too (I've already said I'm in for the X-bracket).
Cheers

Fork tops will be available in billet or polished stainless. Heavier but very tasty!

OK, I'm in for a new set of fork caps.
BTW, what is the size of the spanner used to unloosen the OEM fork caps?
Thanks.
