    Have an 81' R80 G/S with an R100 motor in it. I have an Acerbis Baja rear fender on it now but am looking for something else. The stocker is too hefty, I kind of like the short n' sweet look. Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    I chopped up a /5 fender and mated it with the stock broken fender as a mud flap since the /5 fender didn't go far enough forward. Worked like a charm.

    The standard G/S fender does extend further down than most replicas - especially at the front to protect the battery. Get two replicas - cut one to do the battery protection (in black?) and use the other one for the top/rear - cut to suit your requirements.
