Luckily I can order directly with Wunderlich Germany (or via my BMW dealer), so the extender only costs me €60 ($66), and some more of course to have the dealer install it.

But after all the good reviews here it was an easy decision to add this to my GT.

My wallett thank you for letting me know how cheap you can get them for there lol. As you mentioned, with all the positive reviews I dd not think twice, one of the great reasons to belong to a good forum.

@Gaucho , are you in Germany? Here in the U.S. it's a $115 (€104) item.

In the first weeks of ownership, I installed the Fenda Extenda IIRC. Likely from Twisted Throttle. I haven't had issues with the tire wearing it or vice versa. I may have taken some forum advice and used a heavier duty two sided tape in addition to the plastic "rivets" provided with the kit. So far so good after 11k miles.

It should, I bought one off eBay for about $25-35 and it appears to be the same as all the others. I reinforced mine with an aluminum strap and added screws. No rubbing or flopping around that I can tell. Don't even notice it anymore.

Here is my post with a couple of pics.

Glued mine on with Gorilla glue, like all the other CF extenders I've bought from them for my other bikes.

I prefer your reinforcement strap than the L bracket supplied with the fender extender. Thank you for posting that and the photos.
