I initially had the lines on the outside, but was concerned about them hanging up on the bolts for the crash-bar cross-brace (SW Motech bars, I confirmed contact). I've since put them on the inside, and double zip-tied them to the actual fork leg nice and tight. The "travel" of the lines now all happens below that point, so no scuffing of the fork tubes or lines.

I suspect that my brake lines are STILL coming into contact occasionally with the crash bar bolts under full compression, so I'm going to get some shorter bolts that don't stick through so far...

Ok, I know this is an old Thread but my search engine results only in errors. Do all the lower fork gaurds require a "bracket" to bolt on? or is there a direct bolt on? (2011 990 dakar)

These are just crap cell phone pictures but maybe they will help. I used the SX85 fork guards and they only have one matching bolt hole. I reinforced them by using 1/2" aluminum that I bought at Home Depot and shaped myself using a C-clamp and a hammer. Very high tech I know. Then a bit of careful measuring and drilling and done! I will take some more detailed shots of the modification tonight and post the better pictures as soon as possible.

Thanks, they look good to me, was gonna just do the same but wasn't sure if there was a direct bolt on. Looks like you've been running this set up for some miles any complaints/adjustments/ something you might do different?

Actually I only installed it about 6000 km ago, just before the BCBTR6 ride. I really like it and in the mud I don't worry about the front wheel jamming up. I put 3/4 inch spacers between the bottom of the steering head and the top of the plastic fender so that the ABS brake line bracket (plastic T) wouldn't contact the fender. I have a European headlight kit and the electronic module under the light meant I could not raise the plastic bracket like some guys have on the top side of the lower triple, so the spacers underneath were my solution. I had to use 40 mm bolts through the fender to make this work. I did once manage to contact the tire to the underside of the fender crossing a steep banked stream, but I don't see that being a regular problem, and I have not set my supension up quite right yet. If you have ABS ther will be a small piece of the lower plastic bracket that you will need to trim off, but the pictuires will show it better than I can explain.

All in all I have no regrets and love the way it looks.

I made the somewhat foolish decision to make my own fork guards out of the OE fender. That would have been a wise move had I damaged the OE fender, but I didn't. There's no going back now.

Also, I cut a couple sections of that plastic wire wrap to cover the brake lines where they met the fender as they were chafing a bit with suspension movement.

The chafing is near impossible to avoid. I have been checking the lines and so far they show no signs of damage. I did put a section of 3M clear film on the inside of the fork tubes and on the plastic fender. The wire loom over the line is a good idea. It is cheap and easily replaceable as it wears, unlike the brake line.

Well actually there is a part which bolts on without modification (I didn't use it because, for other reasons, I had the needed parts).

Here is a better look at some of the bits. The bike was being used (as it should be) when I took them so look past the mud.


3/4" electrical conduit and aluminum bushings for spacers. I will make it prettier over the long winter.


right side.


left side, note hole for tying ABS line.


shows where I cut out to fit around the remaining part of the ABS bracket. I cut off the clip.

Put fork protectors on, from '06 85sx, part #47001094000X4. The "high fender" is modified from a dead stock low fender.

Did my little best to elongate the holes with a heat gun and screw driver, but didn't quite make it, good enough tho.. Routed the ABS sensor cable inside guard, thinking there's enough room even if forks bottom (not very likely with my skills).

Another list

Here's the list I used. Pretty simple install as the only parts that need modifications are plastic. Even I was able to handle that.

Thumb Studs!

Nice ice studs, Masa! What brand are they, and do they screw in?

I bought tires from a local dealer and don't know much about studding tires, but they use a stud gun to get them on - so no screw ins..

Which Fork Protectors work best?

After reading through the entire thread, and reviewing the HOW Parts List, my only question is in regards to the Fork Protectors. A lot of discussion about modifying the 85SX protectors (47001094000X4 Orange, 4700109400030 Black) to properly fit the 990Adv forks, but can anyone weigh-in on use of the "KTM Fork Protectors L & R)" (5900109400004 Orange, 5900109400030 Black)? An inmate included these in his parts list early in this thread, but I didn't see much follow-on discussion.

Anyone have any info on these?
