That's an awesome mod, Sir! My Li'l Pony's willing to be a test subject if you like. Just tell me what you need from me.

Looks like you have done a very nice job on that kit.
If you have any left I would be VERY interested in one trying of these.
Also, very cool of you to let some people on here be test subjects.

So this would or would not work with an already lowered bike either flip or nones? I would be willing to try this on one of my bikes as well.

Right, if you added the kit to an already lowered bike. The kit will take the fender down another inch and a half or so over your tire (which is already up into your fender if the bike is lowered) so you would likely run into tire-fender clearance problems at that point.

The offsets on the brackets and spacers are machined for a set amount of lowering of the fender. It bolts into place rigidly at that amount. Not a varying adjustable thing. You get the amount of change that the picture shows, lowered or not, unless I modified the NC programs for it to be a different offset amount.

hope that helps answer it. do you have a bike that's not lowered?

Thanks cike, yeah I figure a few RSC guy's giving "thumbs up", or even down, is a lot better than me offering them sight unseen and untried.

I have both lowered but the two up bike has adjustable dog bones and I am not happy with the handling with the wife on it lowered so this adapter looks appealing. So I can adjust up to stock to add this mod so still interested if you need another test platform

Got it. That was exactly my situation that spawned the idea. Only I had the relay flip instead of the dog bone lower. Once my wife and I scraped my Cobra exhaust on one off-cambered corner I said that's it, I'm done. Flipped my relay around and made the kit and that worked for me to have the best of both. Even for my one-up riding it has been so much better because I tend to corner hard. I got tired of hitting my boards and frame ever so often. Now I'm not risking that and getting freaked out. taking the turns more relaxed now.
