    Made some fender spacers

    I've had a few inquiries about my fender spacers, I sell them for $25 a set. A set contains 8 shims per side and 4 6MM JIS mounting bolts. The shims are 1/8" thick so, 8 shims is 1", 7 is 7/8" and so on....If you ride hard, 3/4" to 7/8" might be your happy spot, most people will have no issues with an inch.

    Been making a few spacer kits. Zapped a few out of red just for fun.
    I’m selling these kits for $25 shipped if anyone is interested.

    Looks good. Pretty cool that you can match them to your fork boots. Although not an option if you have a front cyclerack. My unaltered fender was hitting the rack.

    The flange bolt design of typical JIS ( Japanese Industrial Standard) fasteners can be a bonus at times over more common ISO ( International Standardization Organization) and ANSI ( American National Standard) metric bolts...lighter weight and a smaller head size make these popular for motorcycle applications.

    For those who have experienced the TW's front wheel not turning from mud build-up under the stock fender will really appreciate these spacers.

    Ordered. Considering how the Georgia red clay can load up a tire when wet, I reckon I may be glad to have this product.

    Nice job of fabrication. I like that kind of stuff. But, I'm just wondering, why the raising of the fender in the first place? Is it for potential mud build up? I mean, the fender, even at stock height, rises up with the front tire anyways so, the clearance is always the same. Again, just wondering.

    If you look under a stock fender you will see how the tire to fender clearance necks down around the street oriented aluminum cross brace. This funnel-like feature just invites mud, stones, grass etc to concentrate, compact & build up there until the wheel will no longer turn. Unfortunately the geometry is such that none of the on-board tools can reach up there to readily pluck and clean debris out. With the spacers at least the screw-driver can sort of get up there to begin the cleaning...wheel can still get mud-lock, just takes nastier gumbo mud but at least the clean-out becomes tenable. By then the rear wheel is likely mud-locked too.
    A true high mount fender up against the lower fork clamp with 6 inches of clearance is a popular solution for the mud crowd.
