    Has anyone modified (cut down ) the stock fender to allow the stock brake lines to remain intact but to eliminate a majority of the fender? this might allow a higher fender without the major hassle of re-working the brake lines, etc. I want to retain the dual disks (mine are superb).

    If this will not work.... what sort of brake line configuration will I need to route a new right side brake line to the front brake system at the handlebar. (The Touratech system is on backorder).

    Many Thanks!!

    That's what happens when a bike is really good - you change stuff for no good reason. If it came with a high fender and a single disk we'd be switching that out too!

    I just want one of each. One built for off road indestructabilty, and one stock to cruise with my hunny.

    Got one. Now I need the other. The bike is so much fun stock on the roads, but a little rough with the knobbies.
    So much fun in the dirt with knobbies, but not as sexy with the wife on back while cruising on Saturday night date. plus a lttle slick with steert tires for good off road action.

    The stuff above is the reason for the high fender, wet sticky clay.

    When converting these fenders keep in mind to perforate the rear for air flow otherwise you'll hear that fan coming on more than often.
    The first photo shows a Perf fender, good show..

    Acerbis has a supermotard front fender that IMO looks better than the KTM fender. It also has large openings for cooling. One thing though, it looks tiny on the bike.
