1500 Mud Flap???

Postby cbx4evr » Wed May 09, 2012 8:02 am



Does anybody has this product?? I'm looking for a picture with it installed on a 1500. Google hasn't been much help this time.

I've got one of those as well. I looked at it for a bit, scratched my head and thought, "how the hell does this mount on here?" and threw it in a box. Let me know if you figure it out.

I haven't got it yet. Have an opportunity to purchase from another rider who sold his bike before putting it on.

So what you need to do is install that thing and put up a picture. I think the center panel attaches to the tie bar across the back frame for the saddlebags behind the fender. Not sure about narrower pieces.


I'm not much into chrome or lights so I'll likely pass on this but am curious.

Yes I have one of those. The wide piece fits up under the rear mudguard and attaches to the two bolts that are on the rear of the rear reflector, and from that you will see where the other two brackets fit, however a word of warning ........... DON'T get the end of the tail pipe too close to the mud flap, as it is plastic and when plastic gets hot it melts as mine did. I removed mine and had to alter it by cutting the mud flap and fitting a piano hinge thus allowing the flap to swing free.

Also watch the wiring for the two nifty mudflap lights, it you are not careful they will break as the wiring is thiner that used condom rubber.

If your caravan (trailer) parks have speed humps or your air shocks are set too low you might destroy it. You won"t know until you clean the bike. :)
