20 mm on mine and no hits - but I believe that's the limit.

I can confirm that you can bottom out the suspension without breaking the guard when you have the Touratech raisers fitted.

I had the TT kit. Very nice. Typical excellent TT quality. However, shortly after the install, the fender broke at the rear attachment points. Not sure what caused the failure but there was no mud or sticks, etc which stressed the fender. No sign of interference.

TT was great in offering a full refund.

I made some anti brake tabs out of stainless, I have seen that before. Apparently very common to break there.

Exactly where mine broke also - I fixed it in a similar way.

Whoa, I didn't realize that was an issue with these and those TT brackets have been on the bike for over 10k miles. Thanks for sharing the pics of the mod gents. That fix is next on the list.

fender lift

I made a set for mine and then got worried and took them off - a slammed fender out in the hinterlands wouldn't be worth it. I've decided if I'm gonna put full knobbies on and ride in the mud I'm just going to take the fender off. Either way it's liable to pack with mud. We don't have much mud here in so-Cal.

Good solution. I was thinking of something similar but since Triumph replaced my fender, I choose to skip the riser.

Yep, those front fenders aren't very robust. A little bit of mud today cracked mine in four places.

Raising the fender up 3"- 4" would be more of a solution for mud wallowing. Just gotta figure out the clearance issues.

fender gone

Did it mess with your brake lines at all when the fender came off?

No. I kept an eye on them and they appeared to maintain a safe distance from the tire.

Has anyone installed individual front brake lines on an ABS bike?

Parts list/instructions?

Thanks!
