Fender is an aftermarket (Polisport?) for a KTM 450exc.
The mounting bracket is made from a piece of plastic cutting board, (tough stuff that shit) I meant to paint it black but tried a fit up before painting and then couldn't be arsed taking it apart again.
It is mounted by the 2 bolts (6mm) that hold the semi circular plastic bit to the bottom triple, spaced out with 20mmOD, 6mm ID x 15mm ally spacers (home made) and a replaced longer (60mm) horn bolt, again with spacer.
This all gives spanner access to the 4 x 6mm bolts that mount the fender to the cutting board, again with spacers, you can see 'em in the pic.
The long horn bolt is accessed through a hole drilled in the guard large enough for the socket spanner, it is locked by a nut above the horn.
I hope all this makes sense, it's a lot harder to explain than to do.
IT has just been across Oz on the dirt with no problems, in fact there is less crap comes off the front wheel into your face than with the stock guard.
My design is not original, thanks go to Dan (WW Ronin) for the inspiration, you can find his detailed build on this forum.
I don't like the Wunderlich "beak" either. (and the $$$!)
