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?

Edit....Super Thanks, ChiTown! I didn't know that uber secret snapshot trick. Where's the cheat sheet?

Hey HF,
The 2010 and 2011 F800 GS have a wider gap between front fender and front tire than the 08 and 09 bikes. Not sure if you need this or not.
