Anyone see it?
(I deserve no credit, I saw it on another board)
Bingo :!: you win the cupie doll :mrgreen:click said:After you hit the first road bump you're going to need a new front mudguard
Do I get a prize :lol:
Jean, with your engineering talents I'm sure you could come up with a solution
Are you seeing this right? The mud guard is attached to the non-moving upper forks. I believe Olhins have 4.5" of travel so as Kevin said, the 1st bump...Rich_j said:Come on folks, get a grip.
These are a few press shots released well ahead of anything getting delivered. The mudguard doesn't appear to have the right radius for the wheel/tyre combination and it's not fitted well, the back end is further off the wheel than the front. Probably because its not got the production guard fitted, probably because they didn't have one at the time the shots were taken.
If it was photoshopped it would fit properly.
I doubt very much they would ship a bike with a mudguard crashing a against the oil cooler, give the guys at Norton a break.
I know an electronics engineer that has walked pretty close to that edge a few times in my ... er I mean his ... long design career. Everyone makes mistakes. Hmm - what's that dear? Oh yeah, right. Every MAN makes mistakes. Sorry about that.Jeandr said:Sometimes reputations can be broken with a simple screwup like that, either metal or phoshop, someone made a blunder and the factory should correct it as soon as possible
I better "Fess up" now. I was doodling in photoshop while on a long distance phone call. Took about 10 minutes although a good photoshop expert could do much better in half the time.Jeandr said:
