Fender Extender
on: January 25, 2016, 06:59:41 AM
Hi All

Still enjoying the Crossrunner enormously what a fantastic bike it is.

Although not so good especially this time of the year, is the length of the front wheel mudguard.  Being an avid cleaner, I have to say this bike takes me the longest to bring back to showroom (it's even more time consuming than a GS and I thought that was long enough). 

Looking around there doesn't seem to be too much choice, so just wondering what anyone else is using and have you had to drill holes (I'd prefer not to).

Thanks

Mr K

Hi Mr Kean,
Loving my CR too, I fitted a real carbon fibre extender bought on fleabay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Carbon-Fibre-Honda-VFR800X-Crossrunner-2015-Fender-Extender-Mudguard-Extension-/281904871553?hash=item41a2d6f881 £20 incl. p&p from Spain. I used a super waterproof "glue" similar to 'no more nails' from B&Q so no drilling and it's still there after 2000 miles, it keeps a lot of the crud off the lower rad.
I cover my bike in ACF50 and wash off after winter with Muc-Off, does it for me.  :306:

Thanks for the replies, I'll probably get some exterior grade adhesive.

Mr K,

I bought the powerbronze fender extender. It matches the Honda mudguard very well and I'd say looks the best of the bunch if you want an oem look. I attached with gorilla gel super glue.

Re hugger. I bought the pyramid hugger as it provides good coverage but it didn't fit. I followed the instructions but had to admit defeat and return it. For me the ermax is too expensive. Think I'll resort to the Honda one which is better than nothing.

I can email you a couple of photos of the fender extender if you PM me. I can't get them to upload to the forum!

Hi
Just adding to this thread - fitted the Powerbronze fenda extenda, to new machine. Ive fitted to other bikes.  Used double sided 3m tape to locate and secured using three of "push trim clips"  - as in the images.  (5mm holes) .   The Powerbronze is a good fitted. I like it.  Hardest part - was removal of the existing guard !
- make sure you release the left side caliper - to aid this removal/refit process.

Also fitted the Powerbronze hugger - which is a simple fit.   Be aware this comes with a bare metal fitting bracket, which i sprayed up in matt black - before fitting.
Images attached.    May keep some of the road mesh at bay ....!
