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

Hello there, I'm a bit weary of all the muck chucked up into the gubbins after each ride. It ends up building up and getting a cleaning every month or so when I sense things are out of hand...

I have the fender extender fitted - but it's inadequate. Anyone here have any ideas for a solid re-extension solution?

cheers chaps

Get some rubber sheeting and fix it to the end of the fender extender

Mine has a shoe sole, attached with rivets to the extender. It's been in place for years, and still works well.

See the end result above. It looks slightly amateurish but... hey, does the job. got the rubber sheet material off ebay.

I'd love to see the shoe-sole approach Sulli !

Thanks Mr Hambleton for the suggestion.
