Jeff: nice KLR and a good photo. The mud guard still lets the mud get on your tail/brake light. I was wondering if that would happen as much if you did not have the tail bag which can create a vacuum and pull the dirt/mud toward the rear fender. Just a thought. I sure wouldn?t give up the tail bag.
Paul: the longer guard does look nice but it would be ripped off in a New York second uh California minute on a non-commute off-road experience. That is why you see most of the riders raising their license plate by changing the mounting points from the top to the bottom of the license plate. You also see them remount the license plate to the rear fender and that is what started this thread.
Are the AUS mud guards available in the USA / CAN.? They would be great for a KLR commuter.
Do the AUS KLR?s come with a mud guard for the rear shock?
These are my opinions and thoughts and could be incorrect. :idea:
