OK! Here are some pictures of the installed fenders. Brackets were made by OCC and the fenders were purchase thru etrailer. Tested the fenders today thru snow and water and they pass the test, did not get wet...from the front wheels, just the back wheels threw some water/snow on me. The fenders itself due to being palstic they wobble a little bit but that's ok as long as they do their job. Now this is installed on 23" tires with 3" between the tire and bottom of the fender. For the boys and gals that have nerf bars, you might have to extend those brackets to avoid contact with the nerf bars. Once I see DaGirl again, I'll check the measurements.

Yeah! That's what I thought too but like you stated; once my other plastic and graphics are installed then it will look better. As for the mud, at least my goggles will stay clean longer but I will still get muddy due to my rear tires but that's ok.

Hey Nash,

Do you think these would become available to general public? i'd love to have a set, I just hate the front stock fenders for not protecting the rider against the mud. You just go near a puddle and it's all over you !!!

I'd end up ripping them off in my first ride, I'm not very gentle to my XX.

For the ones that would like a set; once OCC has a bike they would create a template then yes it would be available to the public. At this moment we are waiting for a bike to arrive wich hopefully it will be soon. When they design mine, they did not create a template and this is why they need another bike. I might have a member from nearby OCC that would drop off his bike.

Smooth

You are basically always negative so there's nothing new about your statement. The fenders are easy to replace if they brake and as far as the brackets, basically you would need to damage the rest of the bike to damage them.

Joe that was a great idea. It looks cool and it`s functional as hell. Can you take a picture of the side view. Are you gonna trim the bottom of the fenders where the bolt holes are? And you may want to turn the bolts around so the bolt head is on the tire side in case something bends the bracket a little you wont rub the tire with the bolt.

Nash, take no offense, but I dont care for em. and I agree with Smooth, anything on that rim that sticks over the side wall will get toasted the next time you take a corner too wide and say opps. But the negitive out of the way... Great job on getting them made, I am sure alot of members here will buy some. Kudos on the investment!

I've said nothing negative about your fenders, I myself would end up ripping them off in the woods. No reading into it, no off feelings towards you. They simply wouldn't work for me. Congrats on your mod.

I like the idea a lot. I think I would get a set for when I don't race, but I can see when I am racing that these wouldn't last. I think for a person that is just trail riding, these would be a great idea.

Guys

Let me test them once the weather gets better here before buying some so I can tell you how they went, I too ride pretty rough in the trails and if they pass the test then I would give you the thumbs up but let me try them out first so if there's anything that needs to be change or upgraded then they can. I would hate to see some of you buy them and they don't last. We have some nasty trails in our area so it will be a good test but the only time that I remember hitting branches or obstacles is when I was off the trails, basically making my own trail.

Al, thought about trimming the bottom off like I did with the top side but after riding them yesterday in the snow and puddles, the bottom portion help allot towards reducing getting wet, my boots stayed dry the whole time. I'll be designing a support bracket that stop the wobble of the fender since it's plastic and will rotate the bolts, thought the same thing but just did not do it...yet! Thanks for the info.

Yeah! I don't think they could last in a race and they could cause more damage during the race since it's hard to stop and fix the issue where on the trails, you can stop and fix the issue. At least on the trail, it's rare that you make contact with another rider where while you are racing, you never know when and if someone will bump you.

Besides being a trailblazer, the only other way I personally see myself screwing these up in the trails is when we get chased by the cops (stupid snowmobile bars) haha.
