Post all carbon fiber parts you find for the Honda MSX125/Grom in this thread, make sure to include everything you can about the specific carbon fiber part you post: pricing, weight, pictures, product number, source, etc.

ProStuff also sells a carbon fiber front fender, have a look:


i wonder what the differences are if any between the ProStuff fender and the Tyga fender, going to be a sales battle on this forum since both vendors are here.

not sure what exactly it's suppose to be called but here's the "rear corner piece" in carbon fiber:

This piece looks like it has a chain cover on it but its weird how the rear hugger is connected to it. The rear hugger hump is not round either its jagged.

both the front carbon huggers for the MSX 125 from Tyga and Prostuff looks the same. the weaves look identical. Only the badges are different.

Yeah I see what you mean by that the badge in this picture isn't even stuck on straight. I would just remove it, the name "prostuff" sounds cheap.

If it's like any badge out there I think it would be a matter of using a heat gun to heat up the adheasive and pulling it off. I'd be worried about damaging the finish though. I guess if that happens you can always put the badge back on or find a solution.

ProStuff seems to make some nice parts for the GROM in carbon fiber. I'd like to know what fitment is like on the carbon parts.

prostuff is on this forum aren't they?

The stock carbon fender and hugger is made for H2C and we market it as H2C. Iif you look at our website, you will see that we describe as such. Due to our relationship with H2C/Honda we are contracturally obliged not to compete directly with us/I mean them (smart ones can figure out what I am saying here) On the Pro Stuff, ask to see photos of them making them in their 'factory' and I'd like to see the reaction :)

alternatively if unsure, just google 'tyga-performance carbon' and 'pro stuff carbon'
See what comes up with each of these searches

carbon fiber reduces weight if you replace the part with carbon rather than just cover it. The fender is unsprung so any weight reduction here makes a difference to the handling, even a few grammes. A lot of carbon is just put on to look cool, but that said, you are only talking about 10g here 50 g there so taking a leak is going to make more difference to the weight of bike and rider!

The only parts that actually will benefit from switching to carbon fiber are parts that were originally metal.

Most carbon fiber parts for motorcycles replace plastic parts (which aren't that heavy to begin with)

So it is more of a visual modification.

often the case but not necessarily true. Like I mentioned:
stock plastic fender 400g
Tyga Monster fender in carbon less than 200g

This is partly down to the design but also the material is much thinner because carbon is stronger than ABS

going CF on bikes you don't save enough weight that it will make a real difference when your riding. putting the weight difference into grams make it seem like a lot. 200 grams works out to be just under 1/2 a pound. So going CF, you'll have to get it cause you love how it looks, and not for performance
