1200GS LC 21 fender modification

Taking after Woody, I've decided to begin my fender mod a couple weeks before my new wheel arrives. I'll post pictures as I do work here and there.

Next I'll apply heat and bend the fender, this'll add clearance between the fender and the tire.

Also I'm working on plans to shield the brake cables.

Very time consuming, but everyday I'm getting more and more clearance.

I'm giving hot glue a shot. It's hard to work with but once it's set it should work fine

Alright wheel finally got here, and it looks like I need to do a lot more with the fender. This mod is completely possible but a lot of time is required to get it right.

Nice work on the details. Please show us the final product.

More bending, more clearance

Looks great! So any report if it's rides different or helps in the dirt?

Its been raining here non-stop so I haven't taken it off-road yet, but yesterday I finally pulled the bike out and what I've noticed so far is I can hop a curb or any obstacle very easily now. One negative would be, with traction control on and riding pavement the TC light will blink at me when accelerating, you can also feel the throttle being limited.

 

Can't wait for some trail riding!
