That has far too little coverage on the back of the wheel than I'm looking for. It looks good, but it may not perform like I want. Still looking.

I thought I saw something on Procycle's site some time ago that was more UJM like, but I looked and didnt see anything. Unfortunately, I think adaptation from another bike may be the only other option.

Maybe I'll try to look around Australian sources. They seem to pay more attention to farm bikes and practical stuff and so on.

Loading a bunch of crap onto a motorcycle and trying to ride offroad, isn't my cup of tea anyway. I've taken a bunch of stuff off my DR and it's still too heavy.
There's a seat under all that crap????

according to the website, you must mod the fender they include as it is, and the "kit" is their fork brace + fender-mount hardware kit (low or med ht) + fender. so, yust buy the brace & hardware kit and get a fender w/better/more rear coverage.

I think this is an improved version of the chart I was looking for listed by highest to lowest viscosity. I'm using the Torco 15wt with some .70 Race Tech springs and like it alot.
Link to the PDF and props to Peter Verdone's website for having this available on a Google search.

a possible solution? (personally, w/the non-inwerted stock forks, i would think a brace would be a good mod anyway...):

I don't ride it hard enough to need a brace, but I'll go that route to get a low fender on it.

Beautiful work!
If you went into production with that fender, I bet you could sell quite a few to the DR crowd!

Knobbies make a big difference in dry deep sand. It's still a pig but you can make it through most stuff with decent technique. It always takes me nearly a full day of sand riding to get my Mojo back for it and relax. After that, I do much better ... but that first day is always tough. My TKC 80's worked very well.

Make sure the new foot bits align nicely with the ground.

The heel of a short stand is about 4mm or so off the ground on a full height bike.
