Concours (C14) Fender Extenders Front and Rear
« on: April 06, 2011, 05:50:12 pm »
I have designed my own fender extender for the C14.  I  vaccum mold them myself and they are longer and provide more coverage than any other currently available fender extender for the Concours.

They are made of black textured ABS plastic. The stock fender is ABS plastic as well. Installation involves removing the fender and gluing the extender on with ABS glue available in any plumbing supply or building supply such as Home Depot or Lowes.

The extender blends in well with the Concours styling and looks OEM.

It will protect your radiator from damage, and also protect the lower cowling and oil filter and pipes area.

The price is $45 US which includes mailing to your address.  If you want to order just send me a message and I can give you an address to send paypal payment to.

Take a look at the pictures.

An edit so that you will all understand this is not brand new, there are hundreds of my extenders out in service on Concours -GTR 14's all over the world. I noticed my other thread is still on here from before as well. The pictures will appear larger on that thread ! Or you can just click on these and they get bigger  ;)

Larry.

Definitely a better design. Unfortunately I recently installed a different model. If you would consider a rear fender that has more coverage than the huggers that are available I would be interested. Good luck with you new design.

I also make a rear fender extender $60 US. It installs differently as the rear fender is made of Polypropylene plastic and nothing can be glued to it. So the rear extender is rivited in place and sealed inside with black RTV.

It looks good with the style of the bike and is a big improvement in the function of the rear fender. It helps keep the rear of the bike cleaner and drier in the rain as well it helps keep everything under the seat itself drier.
I have been told this by guys who have installed it, one in Ireland and one on  the island of Borneo (Malaysia) (Not the only ones out there !)

Hello
I am interested in your article.
The price remains $ 60
I want to know the amount of shipping to Spain.
That way it would be possible payment?
Bank transfer or PAY-PAL
The payment method with which I usually work with the U.S. is through PAYPAL.

Waiting for your reply
Best regards from Melilla (North Africa) ^-^

Blue's extended, for the front, is amazing.  I cannot believe how much cleaner the radiator is. HUGE difference. Easy to mount, very secure, and barely noticeable when looking at the bike. It blends in well and goes un-noticed.

On a 1-5 scale, many parts rate 3 stars.  A few rate four. Some, like this extender,  make you feel bad the scale only goes to five.

What part of the Northwest are you in?

I just installed a rear Kawasaki mud flap to deal with the mess from the back, but this looks like it would have even more coverage.  Plus, putting the mud flap on your extension would make it even better.

If you are in the region, I'd like to see it on a bike.

Just a note on my C10 fender extender i bought. 

I used "Right Stuff" adhesive to attach it to the front fender.  Works great, no screws or rivets. 

I have used this stuff on my racecar for years, and I'm pretty sure it'd hold the tiles on the space shuttle!

Hey Kenneth. I thought I replied to you. Sorry if I didn't. Yes, they are still available front and rear. I'll PM you details.

BlueOne,

Sorry for the off topic question,  but what rear tire are you running on your Concours.  The pictures show a tire I have not seen before on a Concours ?

Thanks

Hi, yes, you got it Edmonton Alberta.
The rear tire was a Metzler.

My aren't we sensitive  ;D  If you read the earlier posts your question was answered just not by me. 

I am in Edmonton Alberta.  Not sure if there is a bike with a rear extender installed in  your area that you could look at.
 
The pictures I posted show very well what the rear extender looks like on the bike and an extra mud flap would not be needed.

Larry.

Sensitive??  Ha!  I'm usually accused of just the opposite.  ;)

OK, so you are in Edmonton.  I guess I didn't think of that as being in the NW region, but then, where else could it be?  Even so, if you've been selling these to folks in the US, you might know of someone that bought one closer to me.  Just a thought.

I have a suspicion the pictures don't do it justice.  From the pictures, the rear extender has a look to it that, well, I'm not sure I like.  I thought if I saw one in person, on a bike, it would help.

C1, I felt the same way before ordering one of Blues extenders.   It is long, but I felt the protection factor was worth it.   In reality, the black, textured finish makes it hard to notice once its attached.   Plus, it stops everything from flying off the front tire.  I went through a fresh, tarred/gravel section yesterday. So bad I could her it hitting the fender.  I knew I woudl have a real mess once I got home.

I spent 30 minutes cleaning the back section of the bike. No time on the front as the extender blocked everything.

Thanks, but I'm looking at the rear extender.  I already have one on the front.  I've added a hugger, plus a mud flap to the end of the factory rear "fender", because the crap coming off the back tire is ridiculous.

Thats the truth. That back tire throws a lot of stuff at me as well.

Yeah, I'm in agreement with you there. I'm not sure that anything that will work in the rain is going to look good in
the dry. I'm guessing that you aren't that thrilled with the way the mud flap is working either eh?.
What's needed here (like the automatic lowering seat in my "crap I can dream up that nobody will make dept.") is a retractable extender that
automatically extends when it gets wet.  ::)

...slightly off topic, I have Blue One's front extender and I'm very happy with it.

Actually the mud flap works great, but only inline with the tire.  The sides of the tire still splatters the insides of the bags, the mufflers (duals), and my feet.

I added the mud flap because my trunk lock was getting filled with crap, and seizing up.
