Concours (C14) Fender Extenders Front and Rear

Blue One, is your rear fender extender as wide as the Stock C-14 Fender?
If so, it might help riders with wife's on the back..

One of the riders at Big Bend had his wife with him.
She held on by holding the grab rails beside her.
In the rain,, her hands got soaked! (from the water that comes off the rear tire)

I suggested they contact you about using your rear fender extender..

Ride safe, Ted

Hey Ted, the rear fender extender is actually wider than the stock rear fender that it attaches to. It takes the pathetic little triangle of plastic that they put on as a rear fender and turns it into what it should have been, a functional rear fender that will help a lot with the spray and dirt that comes off the rear tire.
Lots of guys are using it because of problems like the one you posted.
Larry.

Hey Larry
Do you work for a welding supply ???

No, I teach Welding at our local trade school. The welding electrode boxes make excellent shipping boxes and the price can't be beat  :)

Well, I finally got time to put the front fender extender on yesterday and all is well.  I used ABS cement from Amazon and spring clamps from Sears to hold things together.

The brake line clips were easy to come out as mine look like a coarse plastic screw design not the split type that's on other years.  I just pryed the clips off with a flat blade and they came right out.

My bike is a 2012 Candy Arabian Red.

Good job Blue One - your design is excellent and a great example of Canadian ingenuity

I'll be talking to a member this weekend that may be interested in your rear Fender Extender.
He's interested in it to keep water (mist) from coming up (and getting on his passenger) on the sides of the fender.

Can you tell me the width of the extender?

Ride safe, Ted

I'll put a tape measure on it later when I get home and post results. I can't quite remember off the top of my head.
I can tell you that it makes the rear fender very effective at stopping the water and mist for the passenger.
I originally designed it for a buddies bike whose wife was getting drenched as a passenger on the bike and it worked very well.

The rear fender extender adds 2" of width to each side of the fender at the stock fenders widest point (near the top) It adds 4" of width on each side at the narrow point (bottom of the stock fender).
It adds 6  1/2" to the length measured from the bottom of the stock fender.
As you can see in the pictures it has a nice complimentary curve to it and makes the rear fender what it should be, a functional fender.
Hope that info helps.

I cut some of the length off my rear extender to make room for the trailer hitch to fit over the ball. And its still long enough to do the job. The hitch will get filthy but a hose can fix that.

With summer coming I will be out on the road for extended periods of time. I will be answering messages and able to fill orders when I'm back.
If you are doing like me, preparing for summer get your order in now.  :)

I just received my f&r extenders several days ago and put them on this week. Larry, you make some quality parts. Thank you. I'm curious to see if the front extender will clear the wheel chock on my trailer. I'll check that out next week. I'm really looking forward to having the extra protection from wet road grime getting all over my bike. I like the look of having a real, purposeful fender over the rear wheel now. My radiator and Fiamm horns should stay cleaner now, too. Thanks again, Larry!

Larry, I was having trouble with my front extender working lose over time. So I solved the problem. I used a small grinder and roughed up the underside of the OEM fender where they match up, as well as the extender. Then used pipe cement as usual. Clamped it, and let it dry a couple days. Then I drilled and put 4 black head rivets in.

That sucker ain't never coming off!  >:D

Good thought, JR. I was thinking rivets would work just as well on the front fender as they do on the rear. Now, to get some nice black ones.

I'm surprised that you would have any issue with the front fender extender coming loose. I have done installs for local riders and when properly installed, (roughed up as instructed and glued with a proper amount of ABS solvent cement-glue) they are there for good, not coming off unless you want to destroy the fender in the process. No rivets required.
Properly done, ABS glue is almost like a chemical welding of the plastic.
A much cleaner installation.

Proper gluing and clamping along with the sealing bead of black silicone on the inside seam where the extender meets the fender insure that the joint is not infiltrated by water or dirt and helps make sure  it won't come off.

If you did decide to use rivets (shudder) the nice 1/8" black ones (large head, larger than the example posted above) I supply with the rear extender would be the way to go. ( with a 1/8" backing washer )

The 3/16" diameter  rivets are way too big. Not perfect for the job. We are only talking about holding two pieces of plastic together when talking about rivets. 1/8" rivets with the backup washers are more than adequate, larger is just overkill.

Larry , I purchased a front fender extender for my 09 C-14 from you and I'm very pleased w/my purchase. A friend purchased the same thing for his 2014 C-14 and his looks to be shorter than mine. Did they come in different sizes or did the fender length change from factory?  His fender has the brake hose holders (plastic clips) mounted on the side of the fender but mine is on the top. Just wondering?  Thanks  ALAN in S. Fl

Hi Alan, I mold the fender extenders and cut them out by hand. As such there is sometimes a small variation in overall length.

The fenders are all the same except for brake hose location.

Well, maybe you think I didn't install it right, but I believe you would be wrong in assuming that. And I certainly didn't make up the fact it fell off.

And my rivets are working great. Being an experienced machinist, albeit not able to stand at an engine lathe or vertical mill for at least a decade, I see nothing in the strengths of materials involved that would say otherwise.

Actually I will not get into a contest with you on who is right (as it's me  ;)  )

I didn't say you made up the fact that it was falling off, however that fact confirms the following:

If it was falling off, it was not properly installed in the first place. No assuming.   

As the designer and maker of these fender extenders and having installed a great many of them myself for local riders I can assure you that if your fender extender was falling off then you installed it poorly.

When you clean properly and apply glue properly along with clamping, the ABS solvent cement practically welds the 2 pieces together.
No way it is coming off.  Period.

And I repeat, no rivets required.

I'm glad you sorted out your problem.
Larry.

After having installed my f&r extenders from Larry, I have replaced both tires (f&r) and have towed my bike on my Kendon trailer. I didn't want to jack up the back of my bike to try to get the rear tire out, so I just removed the fender, which didn't take too long. I didn't know if the front extender would clear my chock or not on my trailer, but it clears it just fine. I had more people in Cortez ask me about where I got my fender extenders than any other farkle on my bike. Larry, I sent them your way!

Thanks, I appreciate it. After this week, orders will be put on hold and filled at the end of August. It's riding time  :great:  Time to hit the road  :)

On my 2010 Concours, the previous owner removed the stock fender and replaced it with just a license plate holder. Does this extender mount to the stock fender, or could I install it on my bike?

Thanks guys. Seems that my thread has lost it's top of the page sticky status. Wonder why.  ???

Oh well I was glad to have it while it lasted. With over 30,000 views it's been great.
I will continue to make and offer the fender extenders, as usual the best available and just bump my thread from time to time.
I have been enjoying the summer, Texas has been fun.

Ride safe.
Larry.
 
Yesterday on my C14 I ran into some road work where the roads were being re-paved. Had to follow a pace vehicle for two miles on brand new asphalt. I could here the stuff clinking off the fender extender, sure was glad Blue One made it extra length. NO asphalt chunks on body, headers pipes or radiator guard! :great:

Awesome, glad it worked as intended.
I'm almost ready to start shipping orders again, the road trip lasting over a month long was fun.

Got mine awhile ago but just got the front installed. So far very rugged. I had the rear one on for a couple years, still as good as new. :great:

Two quick questions.  Do you have to remove the front fender to install or can this be done on the bike?  Does anyone know if this will clear the front chock on a kendon trailer?  Thanks

Lee,

I removed my front fender so that I could clean it well and prepare it for the bonding process. Plus, you want to have plenty of room to put your clamps on the fender while the bonding agent bonds the two pieces together.

I hope you bought the rear extender, too. It is great at keeping some of the gunk off of the rear of the bike. I also removed my rear fender to install the extender. I now have to remove the rear fender for tire changes. Not a big deal to me, though. I like doing the job right.

Great question. Yes, it will clear the front chock on a Kendon. I have a Kendon and have put my bike on it with the fender extenders. It clears just fine.

The other extenders you see for sale are not long enough to do anything. 

Once Blues extender is on, it looks good. You barely notice it, but once you do, it matches the shape of the fender and goes well with the bike. Five out of five stars.

I'd give him 6, out of five, if he'd make one for the ninja 1000.

I used a product to glue mine on called "shoe goo" Wal Mart has it in the shoe section. It was on for two years.

Later,    I had the opportunity to get  a brand new, never used front fender, so I paid the 10.00 asking price at the local shop.  This meant I had to transfer my old extender over.

Three hours later, I had sanded the old fender from the extender. I could not break the bond, no way, no how.

I'll 3rd this.
I think the Blue One front Extender is the best available.

Haven't bought his rear yet, as I just don't like the looks on the rear of the bike.
  (Sorry Larry)
But, I have heard it does a good job. So I keep considering it..

Ride safe, Ted

rcannon, that was great info on the sho goo..
