My fender extender

Hello,

I made my fender extender from a spare front fender off my 2001 Honda CBR1100XX Blackbird.
I cut 8" off the back side of the fender, and it mates up to the Versys great.( I think)

sweet! I ordered a fender extender on ebay a while back for right around $30 I do believe...I ordered it from somewhere oversees. Its black, however it looks good with the red fender in my opinion! Now just looking for handguards...

kup1236,

Now all you need is nail polish to match the color of your fender to paint the screws so they blend in---just a thought.

Cheers,
David

By the way if anyone of you had these fender extender, do keep an eye on the fender sides around the fork. I discovered mine developing cracks and a friend remarked that the added surface area of the extender acted as a sail and added some pressure to the fender mounting to flex,hence the plastics cracked.

Had the cracks patched up using some fibre mats from inside and i hope it will hold. If the fender broke off, then I'll replace it with a 1st gen fender. Meanwhile that friend of mine bolted an iron bar from the caliper mounting to the rear side of the fender to ensure no flex.
