Cool Xtenda Fenda

I live in a gated community where all of the lawns are irrigated. Most of the homeowners do not have the sprinkler heads adjusted properly and every morning when leaving The Ranch I have had water getting sprayed from the front tire onto the exhaust pipes and the front of the engine. For quite sometime I have been looking for an Xtenda Fenda to no avail. Good news for all of our British Riders; www.bobsbikestuff.co.uk has the Xtenda in stock and will ship almost any place, including the U.S.A..... Use Discount Code RTNBYR10 ans get 10% off.

The first thing that I have purchased in a while that has adequate instructions. I did not remove the fender to install the Xtenda, but I followed the rest of the instructions for No Drill Installation. You must allow 12 hours for the adhesive on the Xtenda to cure and then remove the clamps and you are ready to ride..

It is bothersome to get soaked from the knee and down when it's wet...

Def one of the better extentions that Iíve seen, others have been drilled & fixed using bolts, horrible.

Iím waiting for someone to develop a retractable rain extention for a short rear fender. Wishful thinking!

Checked out the link in the post, they sell 2 versions, one that requires drilling holes for plastic rivets.

I was wondering why my legs were getting soaked on this bike with only a little rain since didnít have this problem on my first bike. Definitely want to hear how this performs.

The Foam Tape that is included with the Fenda really sticks and I will keep an eye on it to make sure it stays stuck after riding in the rain a few times.

Update on Extenda Fenda

We have had a lot of rain throughout North Texas for the past week and today was the first clear sunny day.

I did ride today for a few hours, I went through numerous puddles and small wet areas and when I returned home I found that I have no water spots or dirty water stains on the headers or the front of the radiator or engine.

I don't yet know how effective the Extenda will be in rain, but it works for the purpose I intended it for...

Kenny:

Can you post a picture of the bike further away so we can see what the extenda fender looks like as far as appearance goes and asthetics of the bike after the install?

Thank you in advance!
