Hi there Blue One,

What are your prices ?  I definitely would like to get the front one and maybe the back one too later, unless you sell them as a package deal.  What about shipping ?  I'm in New Brunswick, Canada.  It would probably be cheaper to put them on the bus rather than through Canada Post... or maybe not, I'm sure you know much more about shipping than I do.

Thanks

Suz

Page 2 ?  Unacceptable  :))  41,277 views.  Page 1 is more appropriate.
Fender extenders in stock as always.  :beerchug:

Wanted to add my 2 cents. I have one.
This extender helps protect the radiator more than others I've seen.
Stops the rocks that may damage it, and keeps the road debris out of the fins, to help keep the motor cooler.
Iiiii like it!

Ride safe, Ted

A recent problem a fellow encountered with installation leads me to this post.

These extenders fit very well and at this point there are many hundreds of them in service all over the globe.

The type of glue is important, as using ABS specific glue is the only way to ensure a successful and reliable install. The stock fender is made of ABS plastic as is my fender extender.

The technique of installing is as important. An adequate amount of ABS cement must be applied to both surfaces.

Before installing it is a good idea to cover the extender and the painted surface of the fender up to where the two pieces meet with blue painters tape to protect them from excess glue.

Then you can apply glue and clamp away.

Any excess glue that may squeeze out can be removed with the tape. That way the fender extender and fender are protected from the glue and clamping process.

Anyone who is not sure on their abilities regarding installation can ship their fender(s) to me for installation. All this will cost you above the cost of the extender(s) is shipping.

I install these for local riders and have had a few shipped to me as well.

Just so you know, that is an option.

I don't include glue, it only takes a small amount. I had thought of supplying glue but could not source it in small tubes to include.

The glue is easily available in most building supply stores in the plumbing department, any brand or color of ABS specific glue (solvent cement) will work.

When you are ready to order just send me a PM.
Larry.

That is what I've used.
Clean the surface , rough it up a bit and
it will never come apart again.
No screws needed.

Absolutely ABS specific , just like chemical welding (solvent bonding). As I said, most installation problems come from the wrong glue or even not using enough glue.
There have actually been very few issues with the installation of these extenders.

Hahahahaha ;D ;D ;D ;D

Sorry Ted! Nicole, you buy good tape :) Alan, the state of GA has cost me nearly $3,000 the past 2 years. :mad:

Blue One - I'm just happy to help push this thing to 50,000 views! Thanks for letting me 'yuck' it up a bit  :D

I love when the forum brings me comic relief between doing boring 'puter stuff  :beerchug:

So, bought my bike a few days before attending a rally that was situated at the end of a dirt road. I did what I did to get by temporarily and then mounted a radiator guard soon after getting home and sorta forgot about this. Now it's held up almost 8,000 miles and in plenty of pouring rain to boot. I may be willing to upgrade soon. I hear the Maxwell House canisters are thicker :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :D :D :nananana:

Blue One - I'll have cash at Helen - you bringing some down?!? If not. Why not?! Come play in our backyard :)

I know with your extreme driving habits,,, "money is tight".

So, out of the kindness of my heart,,  "I'll chip in $1.00 $2.00" on the Maxwell House coffee..

The blue won't look so bad. I guess it will (sorta) match your trunk lid....  :nananana:

Ride safe, Ted

Sorry but I won't be attending Helen.  :)  I don't think the Maxwell House tin will be much of an upgrade.  :))

The rest of you guys should all chip in and buy him a proper fender extender.  :beerchug:  ;)

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.

My order was made on the 22nd and delayed by the heating element going out but its been another week and it hasn't shown up. Did it come back to you by any chance? Every time I hear a "ping" on these dirty Detroit highways I wish I had it.

Orders have been taking longer than usual to get through I don't know if it's an issue with USPS or what but all orders will eventually get there.
I had sent out a replacement for a "missing" order and then the first one showed up !
Sorry for any delays, seems to be out of my control.
So far all orders do show up, just take a long time.  :??:

Every Concours out there on the road that doesn't have one of my front fender extenders fitted needs one now. Before your rad is toast.  :eek:  :)

I didn't think this would be the case, but I think my fender looks better with this fender extender. So it's both functional and an enhancement.  :great:

At the Big Bend Ride a rider damaged a radiator.
Not sure if the fender extender would have prevented it (as I think it was a rock from another bike).
But, it sure wouldn't of hurt to have one.
I do. GREAT!!

Ride safe, Ted

Thanks Ted.

I actually recommend a good rad screen guard along with my fender extender just for this reason. The fender extender will help protect the rad from debris off the front tire that in some cases can plug up the fins and impede cooling. It will also help protect the lower fairing cowling.

The rad screen guard will protect from flying or bouncing rocks.
