Chris, The 950 stock fender is closer to the tread of the tire than is that on the 990. Mud packs in there and rips off the 950 fender which due to the cross-over front brake line, is a BAD thing.

I "think" that the 990 mounts are slightly different than that of the 950 (at the fork leg attachment) and therefore, a simple upgrade to the 990 front fender doesn't work.

If you could fab up a simple spacer for the mounting points so that the 950 stock front fender could be raised up for a bit more clearance, I for one would be first to buy a set!

Yeah, there's a significant issue running the stock front fender in sticky mud. The solution for the hard-core is the high fender mod; however that comes with some significant trade offs, including extra mud in the radiator, etc, as well as the potential for a face full of mud and water spray at speed. A few have raised the stock fender enough to allow extra mud clearance while keeping the stock fender.

Clearance at full travel must be evaluated carefully for this to work....

What year 950's? Or all? Would this include brake lines? (which we can do)

I believe that all 950's are the same.

When folks do the high fender mod, they also go to the 990 style of dual long brake lines with the double banjo at the master cylinder rather than down at the caliper (on the 950).

The ultimate I suppose would be to also have a brake line holder/bracket for the new long right side brake line that coordinated with the stock left side mount.

I'd buy a one stop "kit" of brake line, extension brackets, and left brake line mount.......hint, hint!

Hey Chris,

I've got all the specs for you. I can come by and let my bike be the guinea pig for ya. I recently did the brake conversion too so you can see what a kit would require.

Let's do it. Seems like there is interest. Anyone else interested in this??

Chris

Maybe it's worth starting a new thread with subject header about low fender riser interest... from CPR?

Definitely interested...I have already cracked a mount on my 2011 990. I believe there is a photo from the recent KTM Rally with a ripped off fender as an illustration of the problem.

Yep, it's not only the 950s, although that crossover line makes the potential downside of tearing the fender off a 950 considerably more painful than on a 990.

If you're not reading this ride report (oso loco):

Go read it.

How it relates to the situation at hand:

Here is the one we ran into on the way to the rally.



This was on a 990. Locked up the front wheel (slow speed) and sent the rider down. We removed the fender to get the bike out of the mud.

Okay, this looks like the same as my 2012 R. I have that stuff and will see what I can come up with.

The 950s aren't the same as the 990s....

Snap Out bracket ordered !

What a great idea. This is going to be a real time saver.

Thank you Chris.
