Any high front fenders?

So, anyone mount or fab up a high front fender yet? I just mounted Up Shinko 804,805 combo and slotted front fender mounts for a little extra clearance. I'd definitely like even more room.

I have done the same. Still rubs over 100mph. I just keep it under the ton. Love the rubber!

There certainly is a need. No rubbing with an 804 for me, but it's darn tight.

There will be no rubbing until you get the bike up to enough speed for the carcass to expand enough to rub. Run it up to 100 mph and report back.

I'm going to try and fab up some aluminum spacer, extenders limited by the front brake line cross over. Have a 4 day gravel road lap of the UP planned for 25-28th of July.

100mph on a knobby, probably not a super good plan unless you're just trying to wear it down prematurely. Upside? It won't be rubbing the fender anyway cause you burned it up on high speed pavement.
