That was installed as part of a recall. The TKC80 tires could apparently catch the secondary fender and issues would arise.

Thanks! I thought this part would fit: 46622313253

I couldn't tell since my brain doesn't process German sketches of 3D parts.

Oh no, that is where your wheelie bars used to mount...do NOT apply any throttle and be gentle with the clutch or you could loop it out....the ensuing crunch could register on the richter scale

How about some other tire blackening agent, such as motor oil, KY jelly, petroleum jelly, or banana peels?

I prefer my tires to be blue, gray, or brown. That happens when RIDING in sand, hard pack, and MUD...

If you do use banana peels - make sure they're the old, over-ripe type. I used fresh skins on my bike once and the tires were yellow for about a month.
