Chinese Rear Fender

Recommended Posts

On the Chinese sites I see a rear fender like this:

I am worried about the big hole in the mounting bracket.

The rear axle from my NC750X is 18 mm.

So then it would not fit.

 

Did anybody used it?

Does it fit and work?

 

Thanks,

 

Hans

It does fit. Not sure about the looks, but it helps to keep the bike cleaner.

Some pictures:

Not bad for 22 euro's.

Saw one on a bike in the local shop last week and it looks like adjusting the chain will be more of a faff. Personally, I think they look like sh*t, but everyone has their own opinion.

I had a look on that. It is not a nyloc nut on my bike, it has a spring steel ring on the end. That ring is holding the last thread.

For maximum hold there should be 1.5 to 3 threads showing. That was our specification, which so far as I understand it was an industry standard. Thread strength and torque settings And allowable limits were pretty complicated maths from what I recall. :frantics:

We use ASME specs at work as long as the "bolts extend complety through the nuts" we are good to go. Too long results in corrosion & difficulty to extract later. To make life easy for the inspectors one thread through is best on small stuff...mind you this is offshore ramblings))

 

Too right @slowboy it is complicated. I was asked today what torque shall we use for an 1-3/4" bolt that is supposed to be hydraulically tensioned but we don't have the equipment...
