It appears that you do not need much mud to lose your front fender :surprise:

Oops. On the plus side, it looks pretty badass without it!

Is this really just because of the mud???
I would think about a stone or something like that.

Won't be long before TT offers a "fender raising kit", two small pieces of metal for 30$ or so :wink2:

Many bikes in this category use them, or the "high fender kit". Will probably also become available for the AT. That is, if enough people think it's enduro capable.

Marekm,

What tires are you running and how do you find them?

Doh....just realised that's probably not your bike!!! But I am interested in dual use tires if anyone has any knowledge to share.

This 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.

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 fender :)

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:


Might be worth to check!
