carbon fibre

Can you trim/cut carbon fibre?The problem is i have a casoli carbon hugger and a carbon shock guard but i can't use both as the guard will rub on the hugger so if i can trim the guard i will be able to use both,cheers

Now what you are saying but is it necessary to have both?
My hugger has protected my shock well enough so far.
You could try asking RipSnortingV-Twin
He is a member and produces the stuff so should know better than most?
Try finding his profile in members list and give him an email?

I got a full carbon fairing on my blade and needed to cut out the headlight. It was dead easy to do just with a coarse sanding disc, then a fine grade to finish it off.
Maybe not how it should be done but it worked for me.

Belt and braces huh!!!.....

....I'd bin the hugger and keep the shock guard.

The cleaner you can get the back looking the better IMO...

Yes.It trims easily.The faster the cutter(ie Dremel)the better.

thanks for the advice,the reason i want to use both is that the bike will be used throughout most of the winter,so i want to protect it as best i can,hence hugger and guard.hugger will probably come off in the summer anyway!
