Thanks for the good replys...is the mud build-up that actually kills the fender from the sides of the tire, or the top, or both?

It is not about mud build up destroying the front fender, it is about the build up of mud in the front fender causing the front wheel to expectantly stop spinning. And then you are on your face. Ride off road, go with the high dirt bike fender. It is a 3 minute job to change out the two fender set-ups. ds

I am going to cut some adaptors to mount KTM 85 SX protectors on the 990Adv. When I am ready, I may have some for sale.
Cheers.

I have a 05.5 950 and raised my fender with some simple aluminum spacers where the fender is attached. I measured clearance on the fender to contact area on full compression and ended up using a .875" spacer on the rear and .750" for the front spacer. It just kisses on contact on full compression.

For the brake line I drilled a couple holes and moved the brake line forward with a cable tie. Running a Michelin starcross HP4 up front in a 90-100-21 which is a bout .375 taller and wider and it has given me enough clearance with this tire.

Sorry for no pics but bike is behind a workbench hiding behind my klr with my Toyota 22re head off and parts all over the garage as this winter won't go away.

I should add the reason I put more clearance on the rear is that it bows out the fender at the rear so you gain side clearance as well as the height. I messed around with a few ideas and have been happy with it as I like the look of the rally fender. Sorry about the multiple edits too early in the morning for me.
