Larry, I couldn't be happier with the rear extension.
It looks great! I sprayed both parts with bedliner, which made them look uniform in appearance.
I'll let you know when I put the front on.
Thanks again, ride safe, and have a great summer.
Jerry

Looks good Jerry, hope the bedliner stays put and doesn't peel off.  :)  Glad you like them.   Larry.

Hi Larry
I love your fender extender and have had mine all season.
Not only does it help protect the Rad. It keeps my headers cleaner.

Thanks Andre, I had that in mind when I designed it along with protecting the oil filter and lower bodywork as well.

After some repairs to the molder and to myself (dental  :'() all is back to normal and orders will be filled promptly. Hope all you guys had a safe summer and enjoyed it as much as we did.

I am finally a little ahead of the game. I have a few sets of front and rear extenders ready to go now.  :)

I would have to disagree that the huggers don't do anything...the rear spinning tire acts like a big air pump and pushes air forward and hinders the flow of hot air off the rear of the engine, so adding a hugger actually improves the flow of hot air and keeps the engine a few degrees cooler.

The subject of this thread is not huggers and I will disagree with you there. What you have said would be true if the rear of the engine was open to and exposed to the rear tire, which it is not.

Given that the rear tire spinning will have little effect on cooling.

My rear fender extender also has nothing to do with cooling rather it aids in keeping the road spray down and helps keep the back of the bike cleaner.

That's too bad. I've always said, that VeeJ could use a hug.

Front and rear extenders for anyone who needs one.  :)   Translation - Anyone who doesn't have them on their bike. Especially on the front with that naked vulnerable radiator.

Just got a large order of plastic and the good news is that it has not gone up in price yet. Postage has risen slightly but at this point will not affect prices for a little while.  :)
