That looks like something normally used under a cowling beak like on a GS series BMW. I'd hate to see the engine after a ride in the dirt.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Not much coverage for sure, but cool non the less and neede for knobby clearance. I actually went the other way with mine and put a Fenda Extenda on it.

Looks ok, but probably needs a bit more coverage at the rear of the tyre. The stock fender would be awfully close to a knobby tyre, the clearance is reduced from the earlier models.

With a bash plate that covers the exhaust header and engine a little more, you would have less of a concern about pitting the engine case with stones coming off the tyre.

I could push the shadows in pic two so people could see better, if you'd like.
