    This week was fun riding in the snow but it also made me realize that for the winter better mud coverage is in order. My first mod as it were. It turned out exactly as I wanted. I was going to get some urethane but I cleaned up the beast and I wanted to have some more protection this week. It was pretty slushy a few days and I was getting spray higher than my boot.



    I hope this cuts down on the spray a little.



    I got a pair of fiberglass reinforced mudflaps and cut one down. I was a bit haphazard and did not make a template. I cut pretty well though. I used some low profile aluminum hardware I picked up at ACE Hardware.







    Mounted to fender:





    All bolted on:

    Good looking mudflap, that'll keep the motor clean. I made a front and rear mud flaps from the sides of a black anti-freeze jug.
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    If you don't want mud to stick to your fenders you install foam on the bottom. I hate to say it. When I use to race motocross, We had endurance races some 2 hour some 4 hour. There was always mud when it came to a tropical area. Mud can't stick to foam. Now some guy is now selling it. Man that could have been my dollar. When I mean foam I mean sponge like not Styrofoam. You secure it with spray glue.

    Good to know. My problem is slush and water not mud so I should be ok.

    The new flap did a pretty good job of keeping gunk from getting on my engine cooling fins which is the hard part to clean well. It also seems to keep the majority of the spray off of my boots.

    WOW that looks like the spittin image of the mudd flap I made for mine last year and also from a hard plastic car mudd flap. I also made a larger one for the back as the original owner looped the bike out and ripped it and the whole tail light assy. off. Great job on your mudd flap.
