Aftermarket Front Fender

Well, the stock front fender has taken a hit and the crack is on top and pretty ugly. I am going to try to color-match with paint to cover the crack, but I am not optimistic it will work. Some months ago I discovered a plastic aftermarket front fender on the net, color-matched, with a thinner profile and less money than the BMW CF replacement. Unfortunately, I can't find the site. I thought it was a German manufacturer. I have searched all the old posts, but to no avail. Can anyone point me in the right direction? If you have suggestions on other replacement fenders, I would love to hear your comments.

Boxer Performance is developing a CF fender that is long at the back to keep the front of the engine cleaner.

Have a look at the first bike (Lennie's) in the image on this page - http://www.pelicanparts.com/cgi-bin/vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=53188&perpage=20&pagenumber=2

Joe,

Bug CBT about ordering some. I have talked to Jeff about them so if there is interest then I will order some and get them over.

Same for the UK guys and Motorworks.

I have just got to work out the upper side mounting hole fitment. When we mae them the inside is flat and I need to work out a spacer setup that would be acceptable for production.

what sort of hugger is on your bike lennie?

anyone seen a hugger compatible with the ohlins, as it hasn't got the two holes in the bottom of the shock. i don't really like the look of the full wheel cover ones, altho bolting to the caliper is a pretty good idea.

Brad,

Ilmberger. Not cheap once you ship from Germany.

About $450.00 AUD landed.

For front fender extender in the US, see Adventure Motorcycle Gear.

http://www.adventuremotogear.com/bmw.htm

They distribute a product that is from Pyramid Plastics. I've had one mounted for about 45,000 miles. I'm happy with it. Could be even longer, but helps keep a lot of the road spray off the front of the engine. Exhaust crossover pipe and below still gets very dirty.

They were great to deal with. Sent me both Carbon Fiber and plastic versions to look at and only charged me after I returned the one I didn't want. For me, I preferred the plastic. The rear of the front fender isn't CF anyway, and the plastic should be much more durable. Plastic version is a little lighter in color than the fender but blends in pretty good.

Now if anyone knows of a plastic or more durable material replacement fender please let us know. I've got numerous star fractures on my stock fender from riding over a new asphalt road surface and having small pebble size rocks impacting it from underneath. For me, a paintable plastic would be great. I do have a new BMW fender but will not mount it until I can reinforce it's underneath surface somehow. I've thought of coating it with something, maybe a layer of fiberglass? Or a spray on material, like pickup truck bed liner? Anyone try something like that, or have a suggestion?
