Brp!

I assume you mean the XR650R with upside down forks. Tricky to add a low fender. Maybe one from a 990 KTM Adv or a 640 Adv.

the XR650R has conventional forks, so no, a low front fender from any of those bikes won't work

Acerbis is known for reproducing special orders but you need quite a few .. I belive UFO makes a similar fender..

As an alternative to what Acerbis and UFO have to offer, you can look at getting an old fender from a Yamaha XTZ! Hey, not as nice looking, but better than nothing...

I'm sticking one from a gs500f on my dr650. The wheel size is different but it still fits.

I would think that any road bike fender could be made to fit.

UFO Super Bike Front Fender

I know it's not an XRR, but it's on an XRL. Similar conventional forks anyways...

Here's my project with a UFO Super Bike Front Fender It works pretty well and bolts up fairly easy.




You can get them easily through Arrowhead Motorsports, I think. It's a somewhat common KLR mod...

Transalp could be adapted

Bet you can find one on flea bay .
But if you ever ride in mud forget it , just put on a little supermoto fender on it .

Low fender

We go from snow to 3 days muddy to dry. I was mostly thinking of cooling. Getting the stock fender down out of the way of the radiators would considerably increase airflow through the radiators. The Acerbis Fast front fender looks like what I am looking for. Now I just need to find one. Thanks guys.

fork brace on the R?

Have you got a fork brace on your conventional forks?

If so you might look at the low fender for the F650GS; those used to be ~$30 new, price may be up to $40 now. Anyway, you could just clip that on the bottom of your fork brace.

a few samples

I am going to live in the world of "Hey...that lower fender looks like it could be useful!" and totally avoid the world of "Hey...2 fenders...really?"
