Launched in 2020 as a new middleweight adventure bike with a fairly short front mudguard, owners can now protect their engine casing and front brake calipers with the new Wunderlich Front Mudguard Extender for the BMW F900 XR.
It might be popular to shorten mudguards on cafe racer bikes, but if you’re riding on off-road adventures, commuting or just getting through the winter months, it can be painful to see the damage and corrosion caused by water, grime and rubbish being flung up by the front wheel of your motorcycle. Especially if you’re not able to clean it straight away, or stone chips become a problem.
So Wunderlich now provide a sturdy thermoplastic extender for the front mudguard of the BMW F900 XR to compliment the particularly short standard example. Measuring 14.9 x 21.6cm, you get extra length with a specially flared lip on the bottom edge to help keep everything away from the front brake calipers. Which is handy.
And the black colour matches the design of the original parts, so it won’t look odd or be particularly noticeable beyond cutting down the time spent cleaning your engine casing.
The Wunderlich Xtreme Front Extender for the F900 XR is quick and easy to fit, doesn’t require any drilling, and comes with instructions and fittings for £94. You can find it in the UK via Nippy Normans.
