TIGER 800xc mudguard raising/repair kit

Kit provides about 1.25" clearance at front lip to reduce gumbo wedge effect,. with adjustment to return to original position for normal conditions.
Material trimmed for installation is the same as the damaged areas resulting from the guard being torn off, allowing for repair.
Material used is .063 CNC plasma cut aluminium alloy. Stainless rivets + spacers for rear strut supplied.

Installed kit shown is prototype using guard torn off by Utah gumbo. It has been extensively tested and has proved effective and far stronger than the original.
For maximum strength PLJ adhesive was also used.The greatest concern resulting from the loss of the guard is that the brake connecting loop is now exposed and will be drawn into the wheel by the donut of attached mud and destroyed.

Kit price $68.00.
A batch of kits will be produced shortly based on initial response.

I predict that initial response will be negligible without some pictures and perhaps a video that shows the ease of adjustment.

TiGER 800xc mudguard clearance.

Installation of the kit involves trimming a strip about 1" wide off the side of the guard where it mounts to the fork leg up to the level of the moulding rib. This also has the effect of removing the damaged area of a guard that has been torn off.
The rear mounting is simply trimmed off by an inch or so. Again this is the part lost when torn off. Instructions are provided regarding positioning of the parts.
Based on my experience any raising of the guard risks contact with the beak, hence the adjustment feature. Loosening the fixings and slide to new position is all that is required. Guard pivots on rear mount. It is assumed that gumbo conditions and simultaneous full deflection of the fork is most unlikely.
As previously stated I see the main value in this modification as avoiding terminal damage to the brake lines resulting from the loss of the guard.
