    Thanks for the above! And yes, photographs would be nice if you have a chance. As for the problem in the rear - I have the same! My passenger has a very dirty and wet backside after a wetter ride, we've come to call her the Splashguard. However I'd like to change that situation... I bought the Skidmarx Griso/Norge/Sport hugger, (link on that thread), and am installing it today. I'll let you know how that works, but I have a feeling it won't contain the slipstream and spray as well as a better rear fender would. If you come up with a better solution please, please let us know about it!!

    Best, Jesse

    Jeese,

    Loftyjohn posted pics for me (for some reason I haven't been able to figure it out). Look on the top of the 2nd page of this thread, there are 3 pics of the installation, you need to modify the front fender a bit.

    Is that an extender for an F650? Did it come with appropriate hardware, as in, screws with spacers and/or soft washers to not crack the fender?

    Not sure I'm up to griding on the Stelvio fender yet. :oops:

    Wayne,

    I comes with (4) SS screws, foam sticky padding style tape on the extender itself (which I removed & replaced with black RTV), NO washers. I removed approx. 3/16" - 1/4" from each side of the fender with a metal file, total installation took less than 1 hour. It helps to remove the fender from the bike which takes no time at all. I pre drilled the fender and extender and then drilled the fender again with a larger bit so there was no stress on the fender itself. Done a bunch of bikes this way and never had a problem.

    Hi Stelvisti

    I got also that Extender from Pyramid and the coming weeks i will mount it on my Stelvio.

    But i have a question for Kurt.
    You wrote that you did remove the tape wich is on the Extender and you replaced it with black RTV.
    But as i am Dutch, i don't understand the letters RTV.
    Could you explain what you mean by RTV ?

    Thanks.........Louis

    In case Kurt doesn't see this for a few days, RTV stands for Room Temperature Vulcanizing. That is it flows out of the tube, then hardens at room temperature. An example of a product that may serve your purpose is this: http://www.mcmelectronics.com/product/L ... 0-/20-2983

    Louis,

    RTV is silicone. I used black, clear would work as well. A small tube sells for about $4 USD.

    John and Kurt

    Thanks for the quick answer. And it is what i already thought....a silicone-glue.
    But i could not figure out what RTV was.
    I also had in mind to use some silicone-glue to avoid space between the Fender and Extender, which space
    would probably keep a lot of dirt in it.
    But remove the original tape and use only RTV is a better idea i guess.
    Well thanks for the ideas guys.

    Dutch Stelvio Greetings..........Louis
