    Altrider High Fender Kit

    Following this thread....

    https://www.ukgser.com/forums/showth...igh+fender+kit

    I finally decided to go ahead with the Altrider High Fender kit in black. It's a close call between the two companies, but in the end I liked the aluminium fork guards custom made to protect the ABS Sensor and the use of OEM brake line points. I liked how the front mudguard is fixed at 5 points as I suspect this'll get whacked a few times so that attracts me as well.

    Anyways, personal preference I guess but I also have Altrider crash bars, Altrider Extended Skid Plate, Altrider high footpeg, Altrider headlight guard, so.... bit of brand loyalty and compatibility

    Being as though I'll have the body panels off and the fuel tank off when doing the rear brake conversion. May as well crack on with the high fender kit and rear brake conversion at the same time. I'll change the air filter as well as it's a PITA to get to.

    Looks like the bike may be getting a mini-stripdown shortly.

    Pics to follow


    Oh my god, can you see any corrosion yet?

    If for any reason you prefer a different mudguard, they're cheap enough to replace and just pick one you like the look of

    Nah, I'll keep it all to put it back to standard when the time is right.

    Quality aftermarket parts sell quickly and for way more than standard stuff.

    Altrider High Fender Kit fitted today.

    Looks good. Not done any pictures yet as all the crash bars are still off the bike.

    Need to do the rear brake conversion but that'll be next week now as run out of time.

    Also fitted a Garmin Virb XE camera to the bike as I fancied some video footage when next off-road.

    Actually, what I should do is leave the panels off and just refit the crash bars... keeps the weight down and easy access to filters
