Hey obi-wan

Got my front and rear fenders from these guys at bespoke motorcycles, ordered it on a Sunday and installed them the following Saturday.

i like high fenders if the bike sits high, so like on the new 1200's cause i believe the rear is dbl the travel compared to the 900's.... (let me know if thats wrong) if not dbl then it definitely sits higher right?? if you've got the 900's then id go no fender or what i think looks kinda dope is shortening the stock only in the front and leaving the stock length in the rear.

Have the same mudguards on my bike. The allen bolts that it comes with for the rear guard protrude on the underside and come very close to the tire at max. shock compression. So close actually that running standard size shocks with softish compression off road chews up your knobbly tires.

Something to watch out for if you're running them on a scrambler. Either get flat head bolts or keep your suspension hard. I found it out the hard way.

Otherwise really nice set of alloy, those guys make top quality parts

at the risk of sounding cynical (which is not my intent), for the "fenderless" crowd, do those big nobby tires throw a shirtload of dirt/sand all over you?
