While ridding on wet road passenger back and central case lock is splashed with dirt. Cloths are dirty and there is problem with opening the case.
Adding extra fender to caught water and dirt. I was thinking of using BMW 1200 GS fender but I have found used one from Ducati Multistrada 1200. First project assumed that position should be the same as in Ducati. But in Versys central case overhangs more and this solution solved only passenger problem. Second modification lover position of the fender. This has solved the problem.
Great idea and see a few of these fenders on other members bikes that have these. More info if possible?
Thanks for posting! Happy New Year!

As I have mention above, I have found used fender to Multistrada 1200 in good price. After receiving it I have thought of a proper way of adjust it. I have cut it as close as I can and went do some garage for assistance. They have presented solution based on my project. After a ride in the rain, there has been first adjustment (lowering) and then second adjustment (also in angle).
I have no access in this moment to my V so I post photos later.
Somebody from Thailand or another country in that area of the world posted a pic in early 2014 with one of those on their V, and I tried to track it down. Was going to have to send in an order in a foreign language, and was not comfortable handing out my CC data. It was an after market product available for a number of bikes. I love the looks but would not trust my fab skills to keep it affixed to the V.
Looks like koen's second link is the Thai source that surfaced last year. Does not look like this is available for anything for the 2013 V, or was I missing something. IF the exchange rate is currently $1 USD to 32.98 bhat, it looks like these are only around $60???
Those came stock on my 1997 BMW F650 ST, and owners called them 'possum scrapers.' One day, they will just disappear and you will never realize it unless you are looking for it specifically or see plastic parts hanging w/o a possum scraper attached.
I would rather have a rear plastic fender like something cheap off of ebay to protect shock, etc... Of course, possum scrapers look cool. I enjoyed mine until it fell off
