Rear mudguard extender fitted
« on: February 19, 2021, 06:30:54 PM »
Thanks to @1284rider for the quick postage and instructions.
I think it looks pretty good, and should keep more crud off the rear of the bike. Should be OE really, given UK weather.

Fitted one of these several years ago, bought it 2nd hand but never used, evidently it is not compatible with Triumph luggage system or that was what the seller told me. Ideal for sticking your GB sticker on.

It does sit very tight against the cross bar of my pannier rack, which is supposedly GIVI, but even they couldnt tell me what model rack it was when I was trying to get spares for it.
A semi-circular shaving on each side of the mudguard would solve it.

Yes, those look like Givi frames (PLR6409) and not the Triumph Expedition equivalent - Trekker Outback (the aluminium luggage) rack PL6401CAM which actually has the cross bar very low down and definitely wouldn't fit without some fettling.

The extender being a Triumph accessory fits perfect with the Triumph Expedition rack clearing everything by around 2cm.



I had mine fitted as part of the PDI.

Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

Thanks Stevie P.
Heres a close up of mine. Its tight, and touching both sides, but not straining anything so I think itll be ok.
