Front fender
« on: May 18, 2017, 01:23:37 AM »
Is the Rally Raid raised front fender available separately from the level 3 kit? Looked on the website but didn't see it listed.
Thanks in advance,
Jack

Hi Drjack - it's not a raised front fender as such, but a dedicated 19" front fender to go with the LEVEL 3 wheels - it comes as part of the LEVEL 2-3 wheel upgrade kit.

OK, thanks for the info. I want to go with a 120/90-17 for my next front tire so I guess I'll make some brackets to raise the stock fender.

Hi Jack - Yes, that is what some other owners have done when running a 17" rear tyre on the front (I'm presuming that is what you are planning, based on that profile/size?) - four short tabs with corresponding holes in should raise the stock fender sufficiently.

For info. The 120/70x17 front TKC80 fits on nicely without the need to raise the stock fender.

ps. If you've got a non-ABS* bike, you could consider trying to mount a high-fender - this is something I'm going to be prototyping in the near future.

*Unfortunately the routing of the front brake hose [distribution block] does not allow a high fender to be mounted on the ABS models...

Such nice looking bikes! I do have a non ABS but will probably stick with a low fender to reduce the crude thrown up on the engine cradle. I considered the TKC but want the front lifted a bit to level out the feel of the bike when seated. At times when cruising it feels like I'm sliding forward more than is comfortable. I've got the forks all the way down in the triple clamp, don't want to soften or lower the rear suspension as it feels just about right and don't want to trim the seat foam as the seat is very comfy as is.
