Default XR Front Fender

Anyone know if a Kingpin front fender will fit a XR? It looks like there may be a clearance issue with the plastic oil cooler shroud.

I KNOW the XC fender is a direct bolt on for the Hammer and Kingpin so the KP will fit the XC but as far as the clearance goes I have no idea. Here is an alternative that will give you the clearance.

XR has only been around a short time so it's doubtful anyone has tried it. Give it a shot and post pics!

This is a pic of an XC fender on a Vegas that the owner threw Kingpin forks on. As you can see its a direct fit, so clearance will be your issue.

Thanks, but I like the longer look and think it would compliment the longer rear fender better than the trendy wedge hairdo look.

I'll have to go take some measurements first. No money to burn in this economy...

You misunderstood the link. It isn't for the fender but the rake kit. The rake will give you the clearance for a KP fender although you have to use a 21 or 23 inch wheel. If you decide to go with a 21 or 23 Ness sells a fender kit to clear the taller wheel.

Could always lower the back end an inch or two to go with the rake kit and use the stock wheel. Just a more affordable way to skin the same potato. I don't skin cats.

I don't know much about "rake and Trail" in regard to bikes but I do know that the KM rake kit is designed to keep the trail correct but only with the 21 or 23 inch tire. I also know that the incorrect trail can cause tank slap at higher speeds.

Bbob does lowering the rear change the trail?
