    A how to Build your own Rear Mud flap

    I was disgusted with all the gravel - tar and mud the rear tire pics up here in the NW so I did some research and came up with this step by step to add protection to your rear swing arm/shock/dog leg from getting trashed every time you ride. Here is what you need
    1. urethane rubber Ebay / POLYURETHANE/URETHANE SHEET 1/8" X 9 3/4" X 14" 80/85 Black Part#102
    2. rivots aluminum 1/8 x 3/16
    3. sheet metal sheers
    4. rivot gun
    5. washers

    Remove your factory rear mud gaurd, place on the table and scribe as wide as you wish I went 1/2 wider than the wheel and 1 inch lower than the center stand in the up position, then cut and pre drill your holes, .\see pic
    Pop rivot the gaurd to the foward part of the factory gaurd using backup washers

    This looks like a front mudflap for the rear wheel!

    Looks great. Cheap, and quite functional in solving a known problem for those of us who ride year-round in all weather. I just ordered some of that urethane sheet for myself.

    Thanks for posting the how-to.

    Hi Roadcrave: Is the urethane sheeting material you used pretty rigid or is it flexible? I had given thought to purchasing an OEM rear fender extension and mounting it on the front of the rear fender the way you did. Thanks, Rick H.

    Does the mudflap drag on the wheel at high speeds since the urethane is quite flexible?
