After looking at the pics, I am with you an that. What the fukc was I thinking? Guess, I am just desperate to change that ah so fukcly rear of my DX. I figured, after removing the dogsass, it would go well with my 260. I was wrong. Any suggestions, let me know.

Axel, I think if you put back the dogass and trim it to license plate size it would look better. the license plate being narrower than the tire would give a visual effect of a wider tire. At least that what I do with mine.

:them: I had a DX and thought that rear fender was ugly. Way too big for the tire, trimmed the plate holder down to nothin and even put a 260 Metz on to fill the space, didn't work. Needed to be shorter and show off the tire, Hence the F fender. Works great for me. Beauty is in the eye......

Yes. Get the sub frame from a 2007 D, which fits the wide frame, and then you can put the narrow fender on it. My subframe is on the way from the US.

I think I saw the one you are talking about at that same dealer...it was all trashed and they were asking something stupid like 15k for it...It (that paticular bike) looked horrible.

I got some pics too, I just have to find them.

Will the narrow fender fit on a 2007 DX. You increased your tire size for that look. I already have a 240 but want the narrow fender.
Has anyone done this?

Doing it now. Bits coming. Will report back. Basically you need the 2007 VRSCD inner fender. That fits the wide frame (which all 2007 bikes had) and the narrow fender (which the D had). Oh, and the narrow dog's ass.

Bits should be on their way across the Atlantic in the next few days.
