Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Rear mudguard extender?

Post by alanp on Mon 25 Jul 2016, 1:49 pm

I've seen pictures on the web of CB500's with an extender thing on the rear mudguard. Mine has the holes on it for such a thing to be fitted, which I assume at some point was a factory fitment or accessory - but I can't find any trace of actually getting one from anywhere.

The standard rear guard length is ok, but a longer bit there would help stop the crud flying up into the rear rack area on my bike.

Anyone know what I'm on about and/or where to get them from?

tbh I think those holes are actually for L plates as a lot of them were school bikes due to how the licensing laws used to work.

Personally I think the front mudguard is far more of a problem than the back. Even the Pyramid Plastic fender extender thing does very little to protect the quite vulnerable radiator and exhaust headers. I've got the extender thing, but have then bolted a further (large!) piece of plastic onto that. Which looks unwieldy but has helped somewhat - though in retrospect I could've and should've fastened it lower still.

Seem the remember one of the German members of this forum saying there is actually an official Honda rear mudguard extender available but only from Honda Germany of something weird like that?

It's item 11 on lings which helpfully isn't listed in the description.
I saw one on ebay years ago & considered getting it just for the rarity value but missed the end of the auction.

Ah - the hint about German bikes was spot on! Just looked at the cmnsl parts lists for early German spec bikes and got it. But it's 40 Euros..so probably wont bother!

Edit - thanks ashcroc - you're spot on.

Ah Ha - The cut down builders bucket in all it's glory..! £1.99 from B&Q, and you can make 5 spares!



And the front fender extender, extender, made from an old shoe sole...See, Tango does get mucky sometimes!

The builders bucket looks ok to me! Might do that when the weather turns nasty again.
