just a quick question I have bought the kit outlined using the 950se fender and the 950 brakeline clamps but when I try to fit the fender it touches the metal radiator grill. Now I own a 2008 990 s, and by the looks of it I will have to cut the rear of the fender off, am I missing something here?

FWIW, I used the 690E fender (Identical in appearance, except for 2 nibs for the EXC-style headlight assembly on the 690).
Anyway, I didnt have to do any trickery. The fender clears the radiator (by not quite 10mm). All bushings went 1 way.
Maybe there is some subtle difference between the 950SE and the 690E fender?

I have made my own kit but have had constant issues attaching the brake lines to the fork covers. Would someone please post pictures of how you secured the brake lines to the covers, on the front and back sides, thanks in advance, I will really appreciate it.
Thanks

I was wondering if a hybrid system like my Hypermotard might be a goer. Leave the rear of the standard and use half a high guard. A lot less mucking around. Easier to clean out?

The high fender is to eliminate the chance of mud/stones/etc binding the front wheel to the guard with exciting consequences...
If you have the low, rear bit, you havent really achieved the intended goal ...

Airflow and brakelines would be maintained.

What about splitting the guard up the midle with a piece of H rubber/plastic to maintain the join. Breaks apart in emergency

Hi sorry to bring back the subject but I'm getting my new 990 Adv R on thursday. the first mod I am thinking about is a white high fender.

Can you guys please tell me where to get one with suspension protectors and what is the list of the parts needed for this mod?

Gents, I'm converting my F800GS to a high fender using....wait for it....KTM parts. Thanks to all those who posted above as it really helped nail down what parts I needed.

One question remains for me. I notice some of you ran your brake lines on the inside of the stanchions and some on the outside and I'm curious why you did either. I'm thinking inside is safer from branches but not from tire knobs and vice versa. Any insight appreciated, especially from those who've been running this mod for a while.

Thanks in advance.

Same question

I would be interested in finding out the various long term opinions on whether to run the brakelines inside or outside the forks as I'm just in the process of a high fender conversion as well although I have complicated it a bit with an S-spec conversion.

I just finished the fender mod on my 990R and went with the lines outside the fork legs. When they were inside, I tried compressing the forks and the one brake line looked like it got awfully close to contacting tire knobs. Bad thing .

Excellent, I think that's probably the safer option. I won't be running through heavy brush on this thing so snagging the line probably isn't a huge risk.

I left mine on the inside and haven't had a problem, I thought that they'd wear a bit on the fender, but I've noticed no wear at all.

With the brake line guides in place my lines stay well clear of the front tire.
