990 mud guard

I have a new 2011 Adv 990R (<200 mi.) and was looking to do the mudguard mod. When I went to take out the bolts, I noticed the plastic around the washers was split - the bottom bolts more than the top. The splits in the bottom are ~ 1" either side of the washer. Anybody else come across this?

KTM didn't offer to warranty it? And was there a difference in the replacement or the way it's mounted?

same on a 2010

I assume you're talking about the rear, black plastic mudguard.

Mine was split just like yours from the first time i checked it. I couldn't be bothered to get it changed.

Still hasn't fallen apart or ripped off but i am waiting for it!

Mine ('07 990) was split at the lower bolts for years with no problems.
Then I found out how surprisingly cheap the mudguard is...like under $20 IIRC.....

I 'll have a look but it feels like there should be standoff spacers behind the guard.

"Then I found out how surprisingly cheap the mudguard is...like under $20 IIRC"

But if KTM warranties it, I could take that $20 and buy...oh wait, I have a KTM, I can't buy shit for $20

Mine was split, too, for a long time. Then, over time, the proximity of the guard to the rear exhaust header caused it to start melting.

I just bought a new one since they are pretty cheap.
