Shock Protector
« on: March 12, 2016, 01:10:14 pm »
Hey gang,

I could swear I saw something about a shock guard/flap, but all the searching and I come up empty.  I'm trying to locate some kind of flap (rubber or plastic) that mounts to the bottom of the radio box, and prevents road grime from flinging into the space between the radio box and the swingarm - ultimately crusting up the rear shock (and hard to clean area thereabouts)

I can't be the only one looking for this, but it feels like it this morning.

Cheers.

This might be the previous Post you were thinking of : Rear Shock

Unfortunately Ernest T's Photo no longer shows up there,
although you could always contact him to discuss ?

Cheers  :821:

I fitted a mudflap to the Radio Box....as well as a home made plastic flap to the front of the Drag Link to prevent Road crud getting to the Rear Shock.

I was taking out the radio in any event as I didn't want to put a self-tapper through it...  :164:
The Drag Link flap is just the side off a Plastic Box the the SWMBO's Laundry Sachets comes in...secured with a tie-wrap

I'll try and dig out the pictures.....

Does the rear hugger that Powerbronze sell protect this area from getting covered in crud from the rear wheel?

Not entirely....
My only complaint about the Trophy is the lack of thought to protecting the rider and the rear if the bike from all the cack that gets thrown up by both wheels, the rear especially.
Perhaps if they did more "Testing" along the Old Fosse Way in winter, instead of sunny Spain they'd get this sorted..
P.S. I'd be happy to assist in foul weather testing if they'd like a volunteer

Twisted throttle has a shock cover but it is not bike specific

Thanks, I may have to add a piece of plastic to mine then, when I get it. :002:
