    Ordered a brand new ufo front fender made for the wr250f/wr450; hopefully it will bolt right onto my 09 xt250, replacing the half fender/ split lowered mudguard thing, with a full raised ufo, pic on the way when i get it all together.



    Parts should be here friday.



    Anybody else rockin the xt250?

    Actually I'm kinda liking the high-low fender arrangement and considering it for my TW.



    Any particular reason other than looks for why you're changing it?



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    I was mainly doing it for asthetics, the stock split fender on the xt250 is just kinda strange. I liked it at first but after remembering what a real enduro should look like i wanted to make the swap,



    A tw would look awesome with a high fender,



    Ill make sure to post pics when i hook everything up this weekend

    I myself admit to being a bit of a off-road snob...this is what I added to my TW.





    But the bottom line is to each their own and let's all have fun together on our TW !!

    Specifically I was looking to see if there was a functional disadvantage to your original fender I might have overlooked.



    I like the low fender but the front of mine keep breaking. I like the coverage of the low fender in terms of keeping crap off of me and my motor and thought I'd just cut the nose off my stocker and put half a KTM replacement fender up top.



    20 buck solution vs. dealer prices solution.



    All good.

    I like this idea!!! I would also add a rubber flap to the back end of the lower to keep that mud off the engine.

    I have the same fender as Brock. Perhaps it was a result of my fork mod, but in any event I had to remove the slotted rear section of the fender. I seemed to be concerned with airflow and as well getting lots of crud jammed into the engines cooling fins. My solution was to fashion an extension for the fender made from expanded metal. Seems to filter out much of the gunk, allows water to splash the grid clean and I get (I assume) a pretty good air flow. Gerry

    Take care my Friend.........

    I like the long bolt and spacer (or springs) mod. Lifts the fender up anywhere from 1 to 3 inches depending on hardware, and allows that much more "mud clearance" for the sticky clay rides, without backing off the wheel so much that it can splash more onto the bike & me.

    You might want to post a pic of the spring mod for the newbies. Don't think it has come up in awhile.

    I am in the process of doing this. I am raising it 1" so the bracket doesnt interfere with the fork boots and it doesn't hit the bottom of tripletrees when the forks are fully compressed. I am having trouble finding the springs and dont want to use spacers. With the springs, I feel like if I hit the fender on something, it would have a little give so it doesn't break.
