after owning my 800 for a while now I have concluded that it seems to like covering it's self with shit of the road lol sooo I have started to look for a fender extender does anyone know if they do one for my bike or should I just look for a universal one?

ooohhh thanks Sim I must be blind lol I've had a look on the net and didn't see anything apart from the rubber ones that are universal spoze I just have to decide which sort to go for that one looks good I think the rubber ones are wider so might stop more shite flinging up do I go for practicality or looks? hhuuurrmmmm

Well take a tip, drill two holes and secure it with rivets. Otherwise you'll find yourself riding over the bloody thing with your back wheel as the adhesive is shite! lol!

I think Mr I made one out of a bit of leather he cut from some old saddle bag, there is a link on here some where. They made a massive difference, I am sure he was well happy with the results, must be cause he still has them on the front mudguard

lol! totally agree mate never just hope the sticky tape will hold it on.

thanks Crash did look at that thread while I was seeing what I could do the one Dave made looks good but I don't have any spare leather could probably dig up a bit of rubber from somewhere in a shed or garage if I root about enough lol.

 I like the one Sim posted up has anyone with a m800 fitted one of these be nice to get some feed back

they also do ones which are rubber (universal) with Suzuki on them

I've got one on my bandit Morgan, not for keeping it clean though, it's to stop stones hitting the radiator, does a good job too.

on the good job side of it. I aint got one on the M800 yet (its more the aesthetics with a bike like that perhaps?). With the RV125 that I have, I have to use it on some seriously rutted farm roads that I have to ride on. (ones that you would not drive the family saloon down!).....Pics please Morgan, if you get round to doing it?

I made one a while back, one of the cheapest and best mods I have done. ( - LINK - )  This little mod saved my bike from a lot of shite & unnecessary cleaning.

Must agree with Dave,when you make your own you decide how it looks and how big it is, as bought ones are standard sizes and mainly small to keep cost down.Just make yourself a template out of corn flake packet or the like and design it to your needs and cosmetics,then when you feel "thats it" cut it out out of the material you wish to use.I have used leather mouse mats,rubber mats anything that is lying around and free,go for it,something to pass an hour away in the winter.

I fitted one to my M800, when I fitted mine I took the front mudguard off and drilled 4 small holes and used the supplied clips, fits a treat and is very secure.  This is the only good (ish) picture that I have of it

fantastic Andrew thank you very much that gives a very good shot of what they look like fitted and nicely fitted to  soooo next question how does it compare to having just the stock front mudguard looks like it would make quite a bit of difference does it stop a lot of the crap covering your legs from ya feet to knees lol

I know I'm going to get stick for this  Very Happy but my bike never goes out in bad weather (let the abuse begin   ) so I can't comment on keeping rain and craps off me, but it does stop a lot of chippings from giving my radiator a belting, but I also avoid chippings and rough surfaces wherever possible   PS I also keep my bike in the house during the winter ! !   Andy

Which begs the Question,, Why do you have a 'Fender Extender'  on your bike? Were you in the Scouts as a child? Be Prepared! an all that  Laughing

I am always prepared Sim Laughing, I only ever ride in bad weather if I get caught out in it, my wife and I went away for the night in the summer to west Wales and it pissed down for the entire time we were away, being the epitome of a fair weather biker I was not a happy bunny I can tell you   , right then lets get in the living room and start polishing
