    K1600GT Fender Extender
    « on: 2014-08-06 19:59:53 »
    I have one mile of gravel from home to the pavement and can't afford to just creep along.  I've used the Pyramid extender previously on 1150s and 1200s with great success.  But, their 1600 model did not allow sufficient clearance for me to be comfortable that the tire wouldn't contact the extender.  It might have been a one-off manufacturing problem with the shape, but ......

    While twice the price (@$79) the Wunderlich Part# 32211002 extender fits perfectly, has plenty of tire clearance, has plenty of frame radiator fairing clearance, and gives better protection, IMHO.

      I fitted Nippy Normans own fender extender, cost about £20, so far I'm pleased with the protection it gives...

        Can't recommend the carbon fibre one advertised on eBay.
        Looks the part but rubs the tyre and clicks on the radiator guard when going over bumps.
        Coming off next front tyre change.
        I contacted the supplier and was told not to use the comfort setting on the suspension!
        You've been warned.
