Finally!

I have been looking for these for a couple of years now. They are about as
rare as "hens teeth".

Yes they sure are. I think I got the last left side one from Honda in 2014. And the only reason I needed it was because the one I originally put on Red Rocker in 98 was “yellowing”. I remember the right side already being discontinued, so I was super lucky. People that don’t know about them for the 93-94 missed out on a great little upgrade.

Great find!

Good question. I lack knowledge on all things 'early' Blades, but it appears to be a fork protector of some form.

Surely a guru will enlighten us?

I thought they had something to do with forks, but couldn't picture where they are. Have a pic of them installed?

They hold the fender on as well, US model 93-94 ones did not rise up at all to protect the traveled portion of the fork tube.

Re: Finally!

The only model in the U.S. was the 1995. Not sure of models across the pond.
