Followed the HOW method and purchased the parts from KTM-Parts.com today. $117 delivered to SoCal.

Went with the orange fender and black fork protectors.

Will post the results when I install them next week.

High Fender Kit for the 990?

The how method works great, but pay attention to their part numbers since they're color specific.

Here's some 990 pics:









Above, you can see how the home made bracket acts as a large washer for the bolts/holes that don't align. It's just a lil redneck engineering.

The slot is cut out to allow the bottom to conform to the lower fork leg it's not designed to mate with.

Well, crap. Yours looks good. That's how I want mine to turn out.

I ended up just getting the black fork protectors after looking at way too many examples on the interweb.

Went with the part numbers from the HOW, though some are no longer available or have been superseded with new parts.

We'll see....

(Apologies to the admin folks if I've broken a rule with this post... trying hard not to).

Cosmetically probably the best thing that I have done to mine, just make it look the way it is supposed to! Next is a Dakar style screen!

Yeah, I agree. I'd be a liar if I said I did it for mud clearance. Mud where I live is as common as unicorn tears.

It does look better, and I ordered a rallye screen/headlamp assembly from inmate Rade. Should really finish off my bike nicely.

Bit of an older thread, but did you guys who did the high fender cut the nipples off the top of the fender or do they fit in somewhere?

On my 11 990r they fit up into the bottom of the triple clamp.

I don't remember having to cut off any nipples.

I do, however, like that word.

Nipple. Nipple. Nipple.

Me too! It was fun typing. Best job ever was working In a hardware store and playing with all the different nipples!

I saw my problem. The fender hits the radiator, which means I have to do some tripping I suppose.

Internet lore says to use washers on the rear bolts to tip the fender away from the radiator.

It probably depends on what kinda fender ur using.

I used an SE fender and no mods were required.
