    I thought I would start a thread for tire splash protectors (the RS really needs them). I hear that front fender extenders are having a tough time working on the short and flexible extenders and at least one has been withdrawn from the market. But Wunderlich sells a nice hugger for the LC bikes, which I bought and installed on my RS. It goes on in about 20 minutes with just two bolts and looks and feels like a factory part. Unfortunately, I don't know how it works as I have yet to see wet streets since I installed the hugger last month. Photos attached.

    That looks really good Richard. Matches the style of the bike really well.

    I just installed a Mud Sling debris deflector on my RS. When added to my hugger, the shock is definitely well protected. However, if the Mud Sling was on the market earlier this year, I would have just bought it instead of the hugger as I think it will provide better coverage for the area in front of the rear tire than the hugger, plus it costs less and is much easier to install. I paid $150 USD to my door as they are having a free-shipping sale until the end of the month (which saves you $20 in the U.S.). Photos are attached of the protector and its clearance (or lack there of) to the front of the hugger. So far I haven't ridden my bike to see if there is any rubbing at the left front side of the hugger/Mud Sling junction. If there is the parts should flex instead of causing any problems.

    I put a MudSling on mine last weekend. I also have the Machine Art cylinder head covers, so it looks like these guys make some good quality stuff.

    Have a look here:

    I´ve mounted this Hornig Carbon fender. Nice quality and easy to it.
    But not only the look and the installation is satisfied, also the practice. Offers a good protection!

    Too rich for my blood. I'll stick with my Mud Sling front engine protector at a fraction of that price: https://machineartmoto.com/products/...avant-r-rs_lc/
