Front Fender lift kit Gen2 Explorers
« on: August 15, 2018, 07:40:06 AM »
Greetings all

Had an unfortunate incident this weekend while riding some muddy gravel roads (Not by choice) There was sufficient mud build up under the front fender that it actually ripped the whole thing off.....

In comparison to the 1200GS,s KTM 1290,s and the older oil cooled GS the fender on the Explorers is way way to close to the front tyre. Needles to say an expensive piece of plastic to replace @ R5800.00

Touratech make a lift kit but only for the Gen1,s Does anybody know if there are options for the Gen2 models?

Fyi I recieved my replacement front fender today and there has definitely been an improvement in the type of plastic used. Much stronger and supple as apposed to the one that broke. That one was very brittle.

I am very interested in this topic - can you get a lift kit to fit in the front wheel from an XC?

Anyone have any links?

Yep that's the ticket. Would like to see how it works and what the parts look like though - I can quite easily make stainless brackets and things in my own workshop if that's all it is!
