I'm too lazy to go thru 19 pages of response, so I'll just ask...

Does the rear fender extender greatly interfere with rear tire changes? While  on the bike's centerstand, it's already a challenge to remove the rear wheel with the length of the STOCK rear fender...

The answer is, yes and no.

First of all how often would you remove the rear wheel at the side of the road, for me that would be never, if I can't plug a tire it's flatbed tow time for me.
So, yes in that situation it would be difficult.

In a shop for a tire change, it isn't  an issue, they use the drop out plate on the hoist to remove the rear tire.

At home in the garage you can put the center stand up on a piece of 2x6 and then tip the bike forward and remove the rear wheel.

Another way is to tip the bike forward and set the front fork ends on a milk crate ( when you have the front wheel off too for a tire change on both ends )

Anyway, for the most part it hasn't proven to be a big issue, and the payoff with the extra function of having a greatly improved rear fender is more than worth it.

Blue, that's a good suggestion, and one that makes me realize my problem solving skills are getting rusty in my old age!

I really like the looks of the one Blue One sells, but I can't see myself 'doctoring it surgically' to fit my bike currently, as I have a trailer hitch and brackets mounted.. which would impact it's usage 'as is'...

as it stands, it' is a bit "non P/C" to post stuff like this on an IM's for sale product page, so maybe it needs to be moved to C14 accessories, instead..

just a thought.
Knowing how much 'schmutz' my bike throws up on the rear trunk, I'd still opt for the original Blue One version, as it seems much wider, and more able to keep 'schmutz' off my trunk... and it looks good like it belongs there.

I installed both fender extenders a month ago. I finally "had the chance" to ride in some decent rain yesterday on the way home, 10+ miles in the rain. The front one works like all front extenders thou it is longer than others so has more protection. As far as I know Larry's rear extender is the only one out there. Previously after riding in the rain the back of the bike was covered in dirty crap thrown up by the tire, especially the top case and its lock. With the rear extender the back of the bike was wet, of course, but very little evidence of dirt and other road crap on the back. It didn't look any worse than the rest of the bike's upper parts. I'm extremely happy with its performance.

Excellent product, Larry! Thanks!

Went for spirited ride (130 miles) and due to the weather being hot/cold the farmers had really tracked up the roads with what came off of their tires (you can't fault them they are trying to take care of their cattle).  I was really glad to have this addition on my fender since it bought a little piece of mind over dirty roads at speeds that were …...happy.

Good to hear. I have yet to install mine. Did you drill the fender or use some sort of adhesive, or both?

With my front and rear extenders, follow the instructions and you'll be fine.
The front one is glued on using ABS glue, (the front extender is made from ABS plastic as is the Kawasaki front fender) the rear must be riveted on with the supplied black pop rivets as per instructions (the Kawasaki rear fender is Polypropylene plastic and the extender is ABS so they can't be glued well)

As they say if all else fails read the instructions  :)    :beerchug:

Interesting as a rear fender from you may be my near future. Thx.

Ready whenever you are.  :great:

Thank you! Unfortunately, some urgent home repair expenses (e.g. leaky roof) have curbed some of my farkle $s for a bit ...  :mad:

Perfect time for you guys to order your fender extenders.
Mostly because I have time to make them  ;)

Hope everyone is doing well and you’re all safe.

Not true, I always reply, your response went to you on the 20th.
It’s you who has made no response. :-[

That's the way to respond to potential customers. Yes, I got your response after 3 days and after I bought elsewhere.

Thanks

No problem. Impatience gets you nowhere.

I always respond to messages but like everyone else life gets busy occasionally.

Rather than posting trying your best to make me look bad perhaps you should have acknowledged that I did in fact respond to you.

Just so everyone knows, he didn't have the decency to respond that he had received my message.

In the end it's your loss, my fender extenders are available only through me and since you bought elsewhere you bought inferior products.    :))
