I was about to say that, surprisingly it looks good without the fender. Maybe the trails are trying to tell us something? LolOops. On the plus side, it looks pretty badass without it!
Thanks. Mines is in a box in Sydney....am thinking of TKC 80 once I've gotten used to the bike etc. Thanks for the advice on the front fenderThis is not my bike. Mine is still somewhere at sea (so I hope) :wink2:
Regarding tires, I will use the factory mounted tires for a trip to Ljubliana (3000 km, mostly highway) and than change to TKC 80 (had them on my KTM 990 and was very happy).
Before I do the tire change, I will raise the front fender at least 2 cm.
Might be worth to check!Squily said:During the rebuild, I noticed a bolt was missing- the one on top of the mudguard holding the brake lines and everything in place. When refitting, it seemed even the slightest bit of tension on the brake lines would deform the rear of the mudguard and push the mudguard 'dangerously' close to the wheel. So me thinks, the bolt came loose, fell out, brake lines pressed against the mudguard and that with a little combination of mud and presto... one disaster as ordered. Arrow below indicates the bolt:
