Hi everyone,

Has anyone of you taken of the front mud-guard? If so, do you have tips for me and maybe photos of the process?

cheers,

If you mean the fender, I think you have to drop the fork. Complicated.

The way I did it was to crash into a large dog. Took it right off in many small pieces. Putting a new one on...drop the fork.

Not recommended if you've never done it before. Tricky stuff involved with the steering column and if you mess that up...not good.

generally, this is a job better left to the specialist. there are a few speciality tools involved and some very intricate processes.

best,
