MachineArtMoto Avant "No Drill" Front Fender Extension for Liquid Cooled R1200GS & GSA Motorcycles
The AVANT front fender extension for the 2013~2014 liquid cooled R1200GS/ADV is designed for functional improvement and styling to complement the look of this significant new BMW.
The GS_LC’s stock fender is both pointier and shorter than the previous models making the painted front engine surface and the exhaust headers vulnerable to premature chipping from road debris and coating with tar and mud. AVANT helps control this environmental assault, increasing longevity and reducing clean-up.
The patent pending design installs in three minutes with two self-locking screw clamps that grip the underside of the fender, as well as engaging the tip of the fender for a secure fit. AVANT can be easily removed for transfer to another bike in the future without leaving disfiguring holes behind.
Injection molded in tough polypropylene, AVANT fits perfectly and its texture matches the stock BMW fender. It is shown in the photos with BMW's optional Enduro Skid Plate fitted to the standard GS.
AVANT also fits the 2014 GS/A with BMW's standard skid plate. It DOES NOT fit GS/A with the optional Enduro Skid Plate part #77148533747. The reason is, to enable longer suspension travel on the ADV, front end caster angle was changed reducing clearance between the AVANT and the Enduro plate.
NOTE: Several aftermarket skid plates extend forward of the engine a considerable amount, possibly colliding with the AVANT. If you want to fit an AVANT and purchase a beefier skid plate, select one that does not extend forward more than 25mm from the engine. We have not yet qualified all skid plates that will fit with AVANT, but will do so and post them here at a later date.
