I'd love to see some pictures of it fitted if you can. I noticed them last night, but I've decide to try and make something myself instead.

If that fails miserably I may want to buy one myself!

Well, I had a crack at making a mudflap sort of thing. Made a cardboard pattern, then one in this plastic sheet. I intended the clear plastic sheet to be a more robust template than the cardboard, but it's been there two days now and hasn't fallen off, so it might just stay.

Not too obtrusive being clear, might be different when it's all mucky though.! I reckon I might need to adjust the width as well.

It's just held with three plastic push or snap rivets, no glue at all and they seem to be holding it OK. I thought that the wind pressure on it might make the plastic bend back on itself but there's no sign of that happening.

Just a thought, but have you any idea what it looks like when your ridin at 60/70 on a main road into wind? Might be an idea to get someone to drive alongside and video you just so you can see the shape it takes in situ - just incase its bending without leaving marks.

For those that are wondering, this is what the Pyramid one looks like fitted:




Seems to be well enough made and fits fine for the money.

that looks very good for the money , hows it mounted to the mudguard.

It would be okay for road use but would block up for off road, but you cant have everything.

It comes with high contact adehesive pads on the bits where it meets the underside of the existing mud guard, and its very good stuff - once its stuck it wont budge without force. 4 screws are also supplied to secure it in place, I personally only used two on the long face as in the picture. If after a few hundred miles it seems it needs all 4, I will put the last two on the short edges as per the instructions (only done 40 miles with it on so far so too early too tell).

They used to be called mudguards when I was younger. They were necessary to keep the middle cylinder firing on my triple.

That looks good, a bit more professional than my effort! Mine still seems to be holding up though so I'm leaving it on for now.

I think a post in here wouldn't go amiss either.

We have just posted a video with Fenda Extenda fitting instructions on Youtube:

YouTube - How to fit an Extenda Fenda

It covers both attaching and fitting with the screws provided and offers the alternative method of fixing with an adhesive.

The video is also available in HD720p where available.

I hope this helps!

I fitted one of these to my VFR Vtec and it looks good. I may well invest in one for the Alp next.
