Stock Front Fender to Acerbis Super Moto Fender

Recommended Posts

I thought I would post this in case any of you were contemplating changing your front fender. It definetely gives a different look. Here are some comparison shots, and a snap shot of the web site I ordered it from. Let me know what you guys think, I am kind of on the fence about how it looks.

Looks good the only question is

How good are You at transferring holes--

Easy way get four set screws and a hammer (small)

Install set screw backwards, line up fender touching the set screws.

Tap with hammer to mark drill points for new fender. easy.

I will buy the OEM one from you if it's for sale. PM me if it's for sale. I'm in Sacramento Cal. Where in Cal are you? I have a blue S but want to swap the fenders for black ones and go with the OEM SM front. Let me know.

I just installed the Acerbis Supermotard fender on my bike also. If I could have picked up a factory blue SM fender I would have gone with that, but the Acerbis looks really good also.

Here's the fender in blue on my S:

The Acerbis are great looking fenders. They look even better if you trim the platypus bill off the front of them. 👍

Hey Akis, what kind of tires are you running in that picture you posted? Bike looks real good too.

Cheers... in that session I was running Maxxis goldspeeds - medium cut slick rear and a soft wet front (ran out of time to change the front to a slick before the race after wet morning practice).

I had one on my bike at one point... wasn't a fan of the 'broken nose' style to I fleabayed it and got an UFO instead.

It comes with a template for drilling the holes. I much prefer the look of the Acerbis over the OEM. 👍

I did the Acerbis on my 2007 S. It looked weird at first, but you get used to it. People that see it for the first time like it. Plus it helped stabilize the front at higher speeds a little.

I definetely noticed a small change at higher speeds, the stock one flapped around a lot more than this one. I am getting used to it now, so I may just keep it on. Off to getting rid of the most ridiculously huge brake light that came on this thing.

I guess you guys don't go out in the rain much then !? On my SM, the water from the front tyre flicks up past the front of the standard guard & sprays back all over the headlight area. I guess a shorter guard will just let this get even higher. I have to admit it does look much better though.

Here you go. BTW the fender isn't crooked in the first pic.....it's the angle the pic was taken at.

I got one, and they suck in rainy weather on the road.

The spray from the wheel hit the lip pf the guard and I guess the wind from forward movement sprays it back right onto the light and light guard and then onto the rider. Faster you go the worse it is.

They guard looks trick but like I said, sucks in wet weather, I think it needs to be either a tad longer or have bit more of a curve.

Got a Cycra fender on order, see how that is..
