Rear Splash guard review (Motozaaa)
I've been searching for a fair while to a specifically made splash guard for the Rebel.
Having the short Fender on & often arriving home caked in muck in the monsoon season spoils the riding enjoyment, so I couldn't wait to get this new virtually unreleased item.
Just like the Motozaaa Headlight fairing, nicely packed & well protected in the box, but again no illustration guide & fitting instructions.
The bar is nice & solid but the welds are not the neatest, kind of don't notice after it's painted an assembled.
It's a textured paint so the logo print is quite blurred.
After working out which nut & bolts go where, the first problem was the angle bracket slots drilled to the wrong sizes.
Wifey sent them a message in Thai, after several hours waiting they say thier gonna send additional parts & the drawing.
2 days later got no drawing in the packet but a new angle bracket with correct slots & all the same nuts & bolts as before, umm?
Next problem was the swing arm adjuster screw seemingly not being long enough to take the extra thickness of the welded on bar bracket. (Not enough thread for new nut and bar)
The other part of the bar then attaches to the chain guard. This has a collard screw but the collar cannot go through the bar bracket.
Now that I've messed up my chain adjustment I'll have to buy a stand, remove the exhaust just to re-adjust the chain tension & alignment because of this splash thingy.
The plastic splash gaurd itself is too thin & may not withstand the hot sun here or stand up to any stone chips flying up between it & the tire.
I'm still waiting for a picture of instructions & they have not even seen our messages.
I think this is still pre-production as it's not available on their website or any others. Should have waited.
Advanced Automotive Acessories is the designers & manufacturer (that's where I got it from).
Motozaaa is the seller & website.
Not sure If I will ever buy from either again, communications with Advanced Auto was the worst experience ever, from beginning to now.
Ive took it if off for now, so can't road test it yet.
