    Default Any one ever tried to mount a sportbike fender on your sumo?

    I'm in the process of figuring out a way to mount an R1 front fender on my cr500 to get that Euro Monobike look. I'm having a hell of a time. Anybody ever done this? If so fill me in...

    Acerbis USED to make a fender that may be similar to what you're looking for. Of course they discontinued making them a couple years ago. I'm not sure if they ever sold them in the US. I have one on my rally bike, but it came from Europe. You may want to keep an eye on eBay Europe if it's something you'd consider.

    In the 1st pic that XR actually has a sportbike front end. In the 2nd pic the XR doesn't have USD forks.

    The first one is just a 600RR front end I believe. The second one looks like a bracket was made.

    PM replied, jgixxer1. Here's a paste plus the pics of mine, for anyone else who might be interested:

    Basic setup was:
    - I had to trim in quite a bit of the fender to allow clearance for the forks. Also cut clearance in the left front side of the fender for my frt brake line (left it untouched)
    - I riveted little aluminum angle pieces to the front of the stock fork guards, lined up with the R6 fender mount. Attached a C-clip to the angle and mounted with a hex bolt.
    - I riveted the rear of the fender directly to the side of the fork guards (I heated them up first to bend them straight to be flush with the fender).

    Not exactly a sportbike fender, but a cheap low mount one you can order from any yami dealer. Any year TW200 has one, you might even be able to order the mounting bracket and make that work.

    It's an '02+ R1 front fender.

    I did a little searching and found these so a guy can rig up the fender like patevo.com XRR. They come in all different sizes. My lower fork tubes are 46mm. Bolt up a piece of aluminum and drill holes to line up with your fender holes and do away with the stock fork gurads. Next check I'm ordering these. It might be a while, but I will post pics of it when it's done. http://2wheeldiscount.com/Regular-st...s-P219191.aspx

    I was thinking of a different thread. I don't know what fender that is. I was referring to the XR680R at the bottom of this thread. It has an R1 fender on USD forks. You could still put the R1 fender on your XRR with the standard forks. they make those fork clamps in all different sizes. Here's the thread. Look at pic at bottom.

    yeah or just mounted to some sort of fork brace

    This one is for sure just mounted to a fork brace of some sort.



    and this one looks very similar to the adel clamp things



    and these 2 appear to be mounted to the fork guards sorta like dave_in_michigan

    It is a different look, but I like it. For me it's more than just cosmetic though. I ride a big track with a 1/2 mile straight, and that front SM fender catches wind and makes my bike really unstable. That's even with a roadrace susp. set-up and a stabilizer.

    I was thinkin' about this at work today, and I think that if it were me, I'd get out the 1" hole saw and drill about 8-10 holes in the fender. Probably 6 on the top, front part of it (forward of the forks), and another 4 on the back part (behind the forks).

    Seems easy enough, but I have been called lazy sooooo...

    More CR500 monobike pics. I bet some of those bikes will do 130mph. Some of them look like they have 30T sprockets.
