I'm half way there on the Vee2. The front part of the kit is now designed and a prototype built. It's a little more complicated than you might think. Pics to follow. The back piece is equally challenging to make.

Now the really good news. A local wee owner has offered to park his bike in my shop for a while.

I had already designed a fender riser for the two Wees but got interupted by our move. I'll get it finalized while I have the Wee on hand. Should work well for both the Wee and Wee2.

Rick,
I'd like one also. We're talking about '14+ DL1k right? Awaiting Shinko 804/5's. Determined to conquer my gravel phobia.

Yep, just a quick dremel job, elongated all the fender mounting holes and moved up the fender. Not that much more room, but better than stock clearance. Thinking of going with double front brake lines to get rid of crossover line mounted to front fender.

Our Galfer kits are all double front lines.

Sorry, now to let a little enthusiasm out of the subject for the Wee owners. You can not raise the front fender and use any of the currently available fork braces. Existing clearance between the fork brace and fender is about 1/16" to 1/8". So you can have your choice between a fork brace and fender raising kit. I will still make it, but you may want to weigh the advantages of both.

My buddy Ramjet took his brace off a 2012 DL650 to install an expensive aftermarket higher fender. After two weeks he took the expensive fender off, put the stock fender back on, and reinstalled the fork brace because he missed the brace.
