I believe the Touratech fender wont work with an ABS Wee because the ABS sensor (?) is located just below the lower triple tree, and just about 6 inches above the top of the stock front fender. Since the TT fender sets higher, at full fork comression the top of the TT fender might contact the ABS unit.

Croll down to the bottom of this pdf:

you will see that Touratech has a provision for mounting on a bike with ABS.

I would have this on my Wee in a heart beat if it worked with fork braces.

I believe this will work with the Superbrace I found a couple of post saying there's room even on the Touratech site under reviews someone said no worries with Superbrace, I just want to know one thing on there site they say it will NOT work with SW Motech crash bars I cannot see why do they just say that so you buy there's. I already have the bars and I'm not swapping just for this fender if someone can please shed some light on it for me.
Thanks

Just thought I'd let everyone know what I could find out.
I decided to go ahead with it because I could not see anyway the Motech bars could interfere with the mudguard and I was correct also it fits perfectly with the superbrace .
Very happy
I'll post pics if anyone wants.

I have a 2012 and it also says does not fit with the SW Motech crash bars but I agree I don't see any clearance issues since it is only raising it about an inch or so... Did you have any trouble with the crossover of the brake lines? I am assuming you just use the stock crossover and it is just a bit more snug now. Any pics would be appreciated....thanks

Yeah it was all pretty straight forward and nothing seems overly tight at all. Sorry dont have pics on me as soon as I can I'll post some up for you.
