It just looks like the old KLR fenders. I have replaced a lot of those for friends who claim they have high-speed head shake and we put on a newer low-profile fender that is stiffer and it goes away.

Case,

No offense mate, but I think $25 at the KTM dealer would be very well spent on a white colored plastic (so not every scratch shows) front fender.

That thing you have on there now would be an eyesore even on a KLR....

Agreed... It reminds me of the fenders of some of the bikes I've seen rolling around Kabul!

I hear it. ok how about this one? seems pretty standard. not so big so it might not blow around so much.

I have one of those, but not on my BMW. You can try it, but in my opinion it is too short to look good with a 21" front wheel. What I can tell you is that mud and weather protection is pretty bad, it's very short (also in the rear) and those ventilation holes don't help to protect your radiator from stones or mud being thrown into it.... Only advantage it has is that it's stable at speed and flows a lot of air.

But it's definitely better than what you have on there now.

Im figuring i need to get a radiator guard. but yes the vent holes were/are my concern too.

Here you can see how short it looks with a 21" front wheel:

I was thinking more about rider protection. There's a reason they put fenders over front tires in the first place. I'm just not sure how much coverage you'd get from the beak by itself. Could be okay. Just thought I'd ask since it would leave the radiator with more protection than the supermoto fender and still look clean (like the bike in the referenced threads).
