On so many bikes the front fender is too short in back to do much good. I guess it's a style thing. Anyway, I opt for function over style so to better protect the radiator and engine from road grime and rocks I've added extensions -"mud flaps"- to three of my bikes. I've used 1.5 mm black polyethylene cut from an oil jug, stuck to the inside of the fender with double stick automotive molding tape. Cheap waste baskets are another good source of plastic material. I first make a cardboard pattern, then cut out the part with scissors and clean it and the inside of the fender thoroughly with soap and water followed by acetone. After warming up the parts I stick the extender in place and use padded C-clamps to apply momentary pressure to ensure good adhesion.

Much more functional than stock, no permanent modifications to the fender, and it doesn't look too nerdy, eh?  Grin
