Want a new front fender. Any suggestions?

Postby Torsen » Mon Mar 21, 2016 4:39 pm

I dont like the original one. There was a guy somewhere on the net who add on a 1200 fender, but cant find the link anymore. But do you have any ideas? Like it small and clean...

Here are some closer pics. Still not sure what the fender came from. Was on the bike when I bought it.

Maybe you'll like the K1200RS frontfender?
On a R1150R it looks like this http://www.r1150r.org/board/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=26783&start=140#p251985
On the original K1200RS it looks like this http://www.bmwk.nl/webPaginas/modellen/foto/k1200/k1200rs/03_k1200rs.jpg

The previous owner of my bike added a fender from a R1200C, I really like the look on the R1150R. Sorry for the lack of detail on the photo.

Enjoy,

Jaimo, I believe you have R1200C fork sliders and fender. That mount is straight off an R12C. Looks sharp, but would likely require finding a front end to steal the fork sliders and fender from.

Monkey, I believe the fork sliders have been modified to accept the R1200C, I'll try and get a better phot this evening.

Jaimo!

The front part of the front fender can be swapped for a front K1200 RS or GT. your stock rear part of the front fender will work with it , or you can use the rear part of a K1200 LT front fender ( it's about 4" longer , less grime on the engine ) :)

Torsen,
The front side mounting holes have been ground down, the PO completed this mod, I wish I had more information than the photos. Let me know if you would like any more specific photos.
