I notice that Ilmberger make a carbon front mudguard for the K1300S. Shame that they don't make a long one which would be the same as a standard front mudguard with the Fenda Extenda fitted.

Having recently acquired one it is a different 'style' to the stock, not a copy. I intend to fit a carbon extender to it as it 'should' flex less than the stock one and doesn't have thise dreaded acute angles in the design where the cracks appear.

I look forward to see how you get on.
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

Rarely. Hence the rubbish speling.
Imberger, it is.

It ran fine today,but today was quite cold. Let's see how it behaves in warmer weather.
Ride your bike until it hurts-and then-err ride it a bit more.

Once the radiator starts to get blocked you can stave it off for quite a while by cleaning, depending on the mileage you do, but not forever.
