Touratech Mudguard Riser Kit

How much rise does the touratech mudguard riser kit give over the stock fender? Are there any other kits out there that add more height than the Touratech?

About 1/2 inch. I installed mine a couple of weeks ago, but I haven't had the chance to test it in deep, sticky mud yet. My guess is that it will make a little difference, but perhaps enough.

TT defines this 1/2-inch dimension as follows: This height increase gives the tire as much space as is technically possible....

Whatever that means.

What it means is, if you raised the fender any higher it will ram into the bottom of the beak at full suspension travel.

It wasn't enough for the mud I encountered which is why I did the high fender conversion. YMMV.

Couldn't find the TT part number on the canadian site. Can someone give it to me or a direct link would be nice too.
