Just upgraded from an '87 Honda 250x to an '03 Z. You wouldn't think I could find much to complain about having rode the Honda for 14 years, but I do have a gripe that I'd like some feedback on. Are the fenders on the Z actually supposed to do anything? I get mudded in even the smallest puddle. If you happen to hit a wet spot or bog on a side hill and have to lean uphill, you lean right into a wall of water coming off both front and rear tires. I'm sure all the racers don't care, but what about us guys just going out after dinner for a quick ride? Has anyone seen aftermarket flares or extensions for this machine?
