Its officially on the TT website as: "Mudguard riser kit w longer SS brake line BMW F800GS"

I tried to copy the photo, but my Mac doesn't want to cooperate this evening.

Its quite expensive, and appears to be very minimal in the "raising" department. Does it work in the mud? Is it necessary? Is it worth the expense? What is everybody doing about there low front fender clearance?

Before a long trip this summer I got one, since I just wasn't interested at modding up my own kit at the time. It works fine. I can see how it would still be able to pack up with mud in some conditions, but it does add more clearance than it appears to. It was silly expensive: I think you could make one pretty easily with a few bent pieces of metal and a brake line made to spec...

On a side note, has anybody with the TT riser packed the thing up with mud?
