wow! with a 180 Avon tyre on the 5" fatbob wheel and std guard it's tight! 2mm tight on either side actually, the belt clears the tyre but the belt guard misses by about 2mm and thats with washers to space it out!
The front had about 20mm machined off each side and the bearings recessed in further, white walls on them look cool!

You may find that the belt rubs on the tire when pushing backwards for more than a few meters. Mine rubs slightly but rights itself when pushed forward.

How did you approach the licence plate mount? I ended up going with a lay back frame mounted on the top of the guard. The plastic hardware for the Australian version wouldn't fit with the 180 and my side mount also had issues but I wanted to ditch it anyway.

You'll be getting the itch to go with a set of triples off the FatBob as well and go twin disc setup?

That's good to know thanks, the license plate mount is far enough back that it doesn't touch the tyre, mine isn't really low, i have the 49mm forks and the fatbob lowers are longer than the sporty ones so i'm stuck with just one front brake, but it's a PM 4 pot, and i like the handling that i have.

How close is the upper belt guard to the tyre on yours?

I can't remember how close the upper is, I'll have to look when I get home.
I ended up with aftermarket triples in wide glide with a +3 deg rake (Hawg Halter brand), fork legs, and guard off a FatBob (2012 had the thinner tubes) with a pair of 6 pot PM calipers and rear disc from a 2014? Breakout.
