Question Low fender

I've been looking for a low fender to fit a duke or an KTM adventurer. Preferably in Carbon-Fiber. I want it for my berg as I'm not too concerned about Mud-packing on the street.

Any Ideas people?

Try it...........You'll like it!

I don't think he's looking for a dirtbike-style fender...

Grok, aside from getting an OEM KTM fender (could be pricey) you can get a CF one from Schneider Cycles for 140 euro. Their site is http://www.schneidercycles.de/. Here is a picture of one installed...

Thumbs up Thanks guys!

I did a thorough search through Dennis Kirk and came up with nothing. I also have done a bit of communicating with Dietmar Schneider at Schneider Cycle. I didn't see that picture though

These fenders are tough to find! Here is a snap of my front end, Keep the ideas coming, thanks guys!

Looking at your forks, I'm not sure the Duke fender will fit. Your forks have about double the travel of the Duke ones, and the mount points on the Duke bolt to the caliper mount. Nothing that a little creative bracket-making couldn't fix I'm sure, but it wouldn't be a straight bolton.

Just out of curiosity, why do you want a low fender? Isn't your 'Berg fast enough?

Talking No such thing as "Too Fast"

I really just want to provide protection for the exhaust and engine, never thought it would make me faster.
You're right, I may have to modify something to fit, but I will check all the options out befor hacking a $200+ fender!
