so I was thinking....get a fender off a smaller bike like the RM80

maybe that will look more proportional?

I'd like to get something I can 'swap in' when I do track days for supermoto/mx...I don't need the turn signals or tail light, and all of that looks like it would break anyways in a crash
I reckon an RM80 mudguard probably won't be a bad fit at all. I've bodged a set of RM80 side panels on to my DR125 and they look about right.

I can't post any photos though of either of my DR's as I can't do them as attachments and I don't have a hosting account anywhere yet.

I reckon a mid 90's RM80 Big wheel set of forks will go straight on from my working out - not sure whether the DR wheel would work with it though but if it's all doable then it should give 2 or 3 more inches of travel.
