    Anyone thought about trying to fab a larger fender for the front?

    I’ve already removed mine, and still thinking about attaching top mounted fender. Please let me know if you’ve succeeded

    Those are really high quality stickers (if this is what you mean by dipped or wrapped). I got them from http://www.g-speedshop.com (they did all the other mods too). Cheers.

    very cool @elbastos. Higher up but not too supermoto-y. It looks like it’s only attached to the headlight guard? Is that right? Did they just make the piece or do you know if they sourced it somewhere?

    I’d definitely look at a radiator guard too w/ the fender up!

    Haven’t tried anything yet but may try to 3d print something that works. Seems like there are a couple easy/good options for radiator guards now.

    Hi,

    It’s indeed just attached to the oem headlight guard with 2 screws and bolts (vibrations are not an issue) and 2 holes drilled in the headguard guard.

    The fender itself was handmade and chopped from a spare one (not sure what model exactly), with 2 custom made mounting brackets soldered on the fender itself.

    It looks good but is totally useless on the wet (ie close to no fender at all), so I will mount back the original one at the end of the summer.

    Well here’s my $0 stock front fender chop and raise. I mocked up where I wanted it and what I needed to chop off the back, cut it,and drilled 4 holes on top, and 2 on the sides, and used zip ties on the forks and clamps above. I know zip-ties usually seem a little cheap and flimsy, but I do a lot of offroading with trucks and zip-ties are actually really durable and a great way to fasten light-weight pieces like this fender (you can also cut them to remove things quickly, and then grab a few more and reattached easily (no bolts to loose)).

    This took about 20mins and was free. I need to add a little double sided foam tape to avoid scratching the bottom of the headlight, but besides that I’m happy with it. I plan on adding a ducati scrambler style wind screen as well. As some of the guys above mentioned, the fender will probably function worse this way and it’s purely aesthetic.

    Those stickers look fantastic.  I too was thinking about a white/snow camo type print to use.
