For those of you that have taken your GS/A down a muddy road and cursed the idea after the 3rd time dropping your bike because the front fender filled with mud and became a ski. Here is what I did to fix this issue. Step 1 remove stock fender. Step 2 cut in half 48"x .75" x .125" aluminum flat bar. Step 3 Drill holes in the flat bar to match the fender bolts. Step 4 Mount the flat bar and bend it to get better clearance. Step 5 Cut the plastic MX fender that I ordered for this project. Step 6 Mark, drill and mount the MX fender. Step 7 Install on the bike. This cost right at $30.
