I believe those protectors are the ones in this post, scroll down to see installation:

IMHO looks like much harder to install. 85sx's has square bottoms and fits "nicely".

better pictures and parts list

Recently I had a question about this modification. I shot some better pictures as well as scanned my invoices that have the list of parts for the job (as I did it). Hopefully this will be helpful to someone doing this. I have had zero issues with water spray after doing this and no air flow problems either. If you use spacers like I did to lower the fender below the triple clamp,( rather than raise the brake line harness that is attached to the top side of the lower triple as one rider did) you may have contact with the tire under full compression (at the rear most part of the fender). You could trim the fender, or simply adjust your suspension settings as I did. Also IF you use spacers you will need 30mm bolts to come up through the fender (and spacers) into the bolt holes in the lower triple. I used 4 stainless washers not listed on the invoice as well.

Here are the parts:





Here are shots of the brackets I made to reinforce the fork protectors since the holes do not line up (one out of three does). This is 3/4" by 1/4" aluminum from the hardware store.





I made this side longer on the side to attach the abs line with a zip tie.





I trimmed the stock clip off the abs bracket and trimmed the fork protector to fit around what was left.

Since this was originally a thread about Brake Line Routing with a High Fender I have included shots of how I routed mine without disturbing my stock brake line harness. For reference I have a 2009 with ABS.











Thats it. It wasn't a difficult job. I made the brackets at the bottom of the fork protectors by measuring the front and sides and using a vise and a hammer to bend the material. Then filed the edges with a big flat file. The insides of the forks will get rubbed by the brake lines, and I used 3M clear film to prevent any more damage after I noticed the anodization being rubbed off (visible in one of the shots).

Thumb Nice job.

Might want to consider routing the brake lines outside the forks. Didn't theses bikes required pipe fittings?

Cheap, fast fix that was done because I had a 2 week bike holiday starting the morning after the other parts came in. It works so I left it alone. Don't fix it if it ain't broke.

The lines work very well where they are (other than the fork contact) and are less likely to snag in a crash IMO. Others have routed on the outside and still had the rubbing issue. Once you put on the clear tape it really isn't an issue.

Here is the parts diagram as well

Numbers 22 and 24 in that drawing
part numbers:
60013025100 - BRAKE HOSE GUIDE FRONT 03
60013025050 - RUBBER FOR BRAKE HOSE GUIDE03

Is there a left side break hose guide as well or just the right side?

Same part. Just buy two of each.

But then it's facing the wrong way (in instead of out).

Just bend it to shape?

Post # 107 third and forth pictures. No need to bend anything, they work fine as is.

It doesn't push your lines towards your tire too much? Man just holding it up to mine and it looks sketchy without some modding.

65,000 kms. On it with zero issues now. Even in mud so bad my wheel was nearly locked and no problems. On the side where the opening faces the tire I cinched a zip tie to tighten the wire opening, preventing the rubber insert from pulling out.

I just bent it slightly in the opposite direction and it's now similar to the right side in distance from the tire.

The zip tie is a great idea–almost mandatory.

Thanks for the help!
