Which High Fender.
 
As it says, which is the best high fender mod to go for. I am just about to do the 19" 17" wheel conversion and i think it looks better with the fender conversion. So which one is the best, and easiest to fit ????

Regards Gedjack

the stock fender helps the bike run cooler. A high fender is for offroad. I love all you posers

Ged - I'll give you an opinion without attitude. :D You don't need a high fender with a 19/17 combo. The only reason to install a high fender is to provide more clearance for the front wheel in sticky mud. With the 19 front, you've got enough clearance that this won't happen.

My stock fender is sitting in a field after I finished unbolting what was left of it.

19" tires would probably not have caused the mud to clog up so much, but it's tough to tell. Never experienced clay and black dirt build up like I did yesterday. The D606 was not helpful in this case.

I broke my stock fender in about 1000 miles and decided to go with a high fender because I spend a lot of time offroad. I used a Super Moto Universal fender and cut the fork protectors off of the stock one. Looks alright and works well. I will probably use different fork protectors at some point, it was just faster to cut the original than fab something up. If you aren't going to spend much time offroad then I would use the stock one, it works really well and I think it looks good.

Just my 2 cents

Its not just the fender that is the issue. The brake lines were also caught in the mud and were in danger of braking. Taping the right hand caliper to the left hand forkleg fixed the problem. It was the first time i had been caught in the mud on this bike and it may cause me to raise my original front guard a bit and replumb my brakelines.

I went for the KTM high gaurd kit. It comes with everything you need, right hand brake line, fork protectors and the same gaurd as used on the 625 sxc. I cut off the the front section because it flops around a bit and looks like crap. The only problem is on wet tracks a bit mud flicks off the front tyre and covers the headlight. That shouldn't be a problem with a 19 inch front though.

to you guys who ride offroad and do so in the mud a high fender is a must but to spend that kind of money and then run a 19/17 combo with street tires makes no sence to me.There are a whole list of true performance parts one could buy with that money. Like say some nice floating rotors for those kick ass 19/17 wheels. Just a thought.$300 also buys a steering damper or suspension work or ............. $300 is alot to spend on a fender kit you dont need.

I just ordered all the parts for a high fender for my 990... $120!

Gedjack 06-12-2008 06:01 AM

Where did you order that from ????

Taurkon 06-12-2008 07:35 AM

Actually, I think I paid an extra $10 but ordered locally from Blackfoot Motorsports. However, the quote for $120 (a little under I believe) was from here:

www.ktm-parts.com

These are the parts I ordered:

1 7650801000030 KTM 690 Enduro Front Fender Black
1 4700109400030 FORK PROTECTOR L/S R/S 85SX 03
4 59001092050 SPECIAL SCREW M6X12.5 WS=8 .
4 0014060203 HH COLLAR SCREW M6X20 WS=8
4 54808020000 SPACER BUSHING
2 60013025100 - BRAKE HOSE GUIDE FRONT 03
2 60013025050 - RUBBER FOR BRAKE HOSE GUIDE03


Note, this will only work for the 990, and not the 950.

The 990 parts are cheaper...

It's my understanding that the 990 Adv. high-fender conversion is less expensive than the 950 Adv job because the 990 already has the dual brake lines coming from the handlebars/triple tree because of the ABS. So you don't need as many higher-priced components.
