Cry 950 high fender trouble

so i ordered all the parts to convert my bike to a high fender from the following page http://www.ktm950.info/how/Farkels/a...ender_kit.html

some of the bolts and mountings dont seem correct and also the biggest problem is that the fender has superceeded to a newer part and it looks awful!


does anyone have any advice? Also does anyone know if the fender usually needs extra spacer under the rear bolts as mine is catching at the rear.


epic fail on the high fender conversion

Yes, it needs extra spacers (or another "Brake Hose Guide Lower" with the bushings - two in total (one is already on the bike, and you need one more*)) for it not to touch the radiator.

IMO just use some shims under the rear bolts for a quick and easy fix.

yup, shim that thing down, and make sure that you add brake line hose guides for the right side. That one cost me another hose. It rubbed on the rotor on compression and nearly wore a hole in it. Oops, live and learn

right so the fender is sorted, but the brake line guide isnt. i ordered the one from the link i posted but its exactly the same as the one that was fitted originally and wont fit the other side. did you guys have to modify it?

one more question, does anyone know where i can get this fender?





sorry if i used someones picture!

i ordered this part but its superceeded from KTM so i cant get it from them. any other ideas would be great!

Use the guide upside down! -> Magic :) (As long as you are talking about the plastic guide which goes under the fender - 60008019000 - BRAKE HOSE GUIDE LOWER 03):


The other hose guide, the one that is near the calipper and is basicly a strong wire with a rubber inside of it's top.. yes, that has to be cut to size & bend a loop on it for the mounting screw.

As for the orange fender, the one in your picture is the KTM 950 Super Enduro's fender, part number 6300801000004 (FENDER FRONT ORANGE 06), and is orange, just like the one in the picture.

If you want the same fender in black.. well that's a different story.

Neither does ktm-parts.com or sparepartsfinder.ktm.com mention that it is superseeded.. Are you sure that this was the pn#?

I converted the brake lines to the newer 990 lines and used a Polisport Supermoto front fender on mine along with SX85 guards. It's a little bit of a challenge to get all of the bits to work together, but it's a good, safe solution in the end.


And I know somebody out there already is wanting to start the old "brake lines inside the forks" vs. the "brake lines outside the forks" debate. Just shut it!

Or lose the right caliper & disc and go with a SE master.

Here is the thread that started the 950 high fender kit:

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=77333

Which I took and made my kit, with the EXC fender originally:

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...0&postcount=33

I then replaced the EXC fender for the 690 fender. The lower hose guide, since not made for the right side had to be modified by shortening it and reversing the bend in order to mount it. Here's a pic:



As well as the fork guards that require the side mounts to be stretched to reach the mounting holes.

What I did for the hose guides was cut them in the middle so they were able to mount back to back, this allowed for the stock fender bolts and spacers to be used.

There lots or good info in this thread from all of us that went through the mod in the beginning:

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=350360

As for the 690 orange fender, just change the last two digits of the part number I have listed from 30 to 04. That the color code:

http://www.ktm-parts.com/76508010000...l#.VHC8M4g8KrU

Hope this helps.

Do you feel it under brakes at high speed on pavement? Do you notice a bid difference in weight loss on the front end off road?

Is the SE Master a direct swap?

Lots of variations on the high fender too.



I used the legs off of my stock fender and a factory KTM fender from a dealership. I liked the look of it and said what he hell. And there it is.

Right so im finally sorted with the conversion and all mountings so cheers guys!!

but i may not have been clear before. i have no problem with finding the part number or the colou code i require but when i give the part number to any ktm supplier they tell me its superceeded to a new number and the old one is no longer available. what i could really use is somewhere that has an orange one in stock.

its really getting to me now cos all you guys seem to have the right one!! lol

ill post some pics of the bike soon, didnt get time last night as it was dark when i finished, spent hours peeling the original stickers off the bike ready for my new ones to go on.

It totally transforms the front brake. I can't say it's better or worse, it's different. More pressure is needed on the lever for the same braking power as with stock - which I personally like, but some may hate. I don't really ride high speeds on pavement, or technical pavement where much braking power would be needed - so I don't know how it would handle that - probably not too good. I always run knobbies, and I can lock up the fronts with this setup as well - if that counts..

IMO the weight loss is not noticeable, but the levers actuating range changes in good terms for my taste, as I've wrote. This is a big plus offroad, as braking power becames much more adjustable.

The SE master is a direct (and not too costly) replacement if you lose the right caliper and disc, and run the single (stock) brake line from the master to the remaining, left caliper.
