Turismo fender extender

There is no model specific fender extender for the TV on the market. I went around local bike shops to see if any other bikes fender was a close enough match. The Kawasaki Z300 was. Fitting is easy.

Nice one. How is it attached? Screws, sticky fixers, blue-tack

Any chance of a side on shot?

One reason the rear of the front fender was not on the bike in the first place is because it does have some effect on the air flow to the radiator.
You might want to watch the temperature gauge for a while to see if there is any change.

This particular extender fits with 3 push fit rivets. Drill holes and push the rivets through. You have to take the mudguard off though cos the wires and white plastic bit are in the way.
I don't see how this can affect airflow to the radiator. It wont restrict airflow much more than the wheel does. Ive done 2500 miles with the extender and a radiator guard fitted with no effect on the temperature.
Will try and post a side shot this weekend.

Thanks, would like to see how well/close it follows the Wheel.

Somewhat averse to the idea of drilling holes in the rather expensive original mudguard but if it looks right and cuts down on spray/muck on the bike then maybe worth considering. Bolts or rivets probably the most secure and durable.

Thinking about the way the wheel rotates most of the spray from wet roads is probably over the engine before an extension has a chance to catch any of it. Might help the rad not get quite so filthy. Like you I have a rad guard fitted as a precaution against the somewhat exposed oil cooler and rad getting hit by stones etc. so that aspect of stuff thrown up by the wheel is hopefully covered.

I had a Guzzi to which I fitted a fender extender. That came supplied with a glue. Worked ok as well. I did not want to drill holes in the original fender. That extender was moulded specifically for the Guzzi so it might be different trying to fit a non specific model extended.

I've got a radiator guard fitted, like Bumpkin I don't think the extender is long enough to be effective - it takes the stock fender to to the length of a normal front fender, about the same as on my Triumph before I fitted an extender to that.

The extender is made by pyramid plastics. I bought it from bobs-bike-stuff on ebay. As requested here is a side view photo to show angle to original mudguard and distance from the tyre.

Thanks for posting the pic Dawsor, appreciated.

It looks like the gap between the extender and tyre increases away from the forks. Looks a bit odd but admittedly might actually help the practical function in terms of catching spray. Whilst looks aren't everything they do count... Will see how the absence of an extender effects the bike for the next month or two (2000 mile tour coming up) and then make a call on this.
