    Rear splash guard

    Fitted this morning, not tested yet but I will post review once It's been tested in the rain..

    It's the cheap one from, I think, Motea. They didn't send any fitting so I had to raid my parts bin for the correct size spaces...

    With the greatest respect, I would rather have the splashing than that ugly thing

    It's a marmite thing I guess haha, I personally quite like this style of mudguard on the GSs, MT09s etc

    I guess it is a personal thing! I find this add on less obtrusive and ugly than a humungoid top box strapped to the rear of my bike!

    No ofence taken, I can't see it when I'm riding and if I'm parked next to an xr without one, guess which bike will be stolen  :018:

    Besides I like my luggage clean an when It's had a couple of hundred miles of road crud thrown at it It's a pain to clean.  :169:

    Not sure how you would fit that, it looks bike specific. The bracket for the splash guard i bought was like a wide tuning fork that slips behind the axle then held in place when you tighten up the axle nut..  :028:

    I've been thinking more and more about adding the rear mudguard from the Aprilia Caponord 1200. If the width is even reasonably close, I would simply tap two screw holes into the back of the axle spacer on each side because that was how it was installed on my Capo. It's all plastic, so it's very light, yet it was structurally rigid, and I think it actually looks somewhat appealing.

    I'd ordered the Givi one last week & it arrived today. Nice simple job to fit the thing.

    I know it's not for everyone, but I'm fed up with the mess this bike gets into at the rear if I get caught out on wet roads. It gets absolutely splattered !

    Anyway, here's a few pics .....
