    Fender modification

    All my other bikes had one  :152: now it's time to do the same to the Crossrunner
    I placed a fender extender on the front mudguard.



    It takes a little hour to do it right. First I cleaned the front fender inside and out.



    You only have to drill 4 holes (4mm) to fit the push-rivets.



    I must say... good fitting   :028:   just like on my previous Suzuki's

    Got this fitted to my bike, an essential - pity Honda couldn't supply a full size front fender.

    Me too, but I glued mine rather than drilling holes.
    98 VFR800 - 130,000 miles, 08 VFR800 - 76,000 miles, 15 VFR800X - 44,000 miles (all sold)
    14 VFR1200 - 20,000 miles
    18 VFR800X - 16,000 miles
    01 VFR800 Fi-1 - 9000 miles

    Glued mine also.

    I do wonder why Honda and other manufacturers keep their fenders short.  They rarely omit something obvious like this without a reason.

    When I fitted an extender to my VFR800 FiX the aerodynamics caused flexing and placed stress on the mounting points.  After 5000 miles or so these turned into stress fractures that required fender replacement.  The fender on my CR seems to be a much more flexible plastic so I've fitted one again in the hope that it will resist stress cracks.

    My mk1's fender was still good with over 6000 miles under its belt with a Fenda Extenda!  :002:

    If you want to see a proper front mudguard check out the Suzuki V strom 1050.
