Super Enduro Fender

I want to do a high fender conversion on my 950 and like the look of the SE fender.

Does anyone know if this is available (maybe from Sommer)? Does it come in black? Would it fit the 950 Adv without hitting the tanks?

Thanks

Ya I know Touratech is all that but $220+USD for a high fender conversion? Come on, what are you folks and Touratech smoking...and can I get some? That fender is under $30 from KTM Hard Parts catalog, the fork protectors and a couple other pieces of minor hardware may add up up to what, $50 for the whole kit. Ok, the brakeline may cost a few clams but I'm betting Fren Tubo or similar offer an alternative for a whole lot less...or just jettison the right brake since a dirt bike is better with only one front brake anyway. I'll be damned before I'm paying $221 for that kit. Take care.

If you ditch the right caliper, you can get away with $20 or so for the fender and $28 or so for the fork protectors. Add all the clamps, brake hose and the like, and you're getting to about $150 or $160. You're paying touratech $60 for putting everything in one box and venting the rear of the front fender. It's what businesses do - make money.

I agree. I have done it both ways and I will do the Tourtec when available as I don't have to rely on KTM parts dept. The Tourtec comes with all the correct parts the first time. and on my style of riding the vented fender helps the low speed cooling considerably.

OK - OK. . . . .back to the original question. I too want to know if this would work. I like the look of the SE and/or the SM fenders. Has anyone out there tried this

I'd just like to point out that venting your own fender is not a complicated process....sure it wont be CNC controlled, but i am sure you can pull the trigger on the chordless drill just as well. And though having 2 calipers on the front may be more then the bike needs, I wouldnt get rid of the second after some of decents I have been through with a heavily loaded bike....its nice to have that backup.

Do a search, there was a thread a few months ago with all KTM part #'s listed, costs & installation pics(keep both brakes). Approx $150, I used the list for the conversion on my 950.

There's a picture of the SM fender on a 950 in the other active front fender thread
