Front mudguard flexing

Has anyone else experienced the front mudguard flexing while riding at high speed causing the handlebars to shudder and if so how did you overcome it?

A front fender brace like Steve sells would stiffen it up:

The front mudguard is a bit of a sail though. For high speed stability you need to go for a rally/roadster low style.

 Never had the mudguard cause other issues, yes it bounces around under harsh riding, are you sure the front wheel is running true, tyre seated correctly, the root of the problem may be causing the mudguard to bounce or flex but I would be checking the front end out

I’m with TerryK, never had this problem.
I’ve got a genuine Yamaha TTR250 one and when I’m going out on a “rough ride” trip, a YZ250 version.
Neither have ever wobbled around.

Hey, great to see that you Brits are allowed out of your houses again.
I’d be headin’ for the nearest Pub ! 🍻🤪

Cheers 🍺
Jeff

Same here Jeff - never had the issue.

I think that the ladies are very happy to have the retail shops and hairdressers etc open again. I know my sisters just couldn't wait to get their hair done - the blokes not so much no

Sadly, the weather in the UK was pants yesterday so I certainly wasn't tempted to sit outside a pub to quaff a pint! It was the recent lifting of the "stay local" that made the most difference to us I think.

Stay safe!

Brian

It only happens when I hit about 110k’s or when I came up behind a slower vehicle and entered the turbulence zone behind it. Will I’ll check out Steve’s braces.

Ronnie mac recommends cutting your mudguards for speed.

I'd recommend the Totallyttr brace, from memory I had to file it out a bit but its served me well for years with tubes, tyre irons etc.
