Rear Wheel Spray
on: August 26, 2015, 11:05:40 AM
Been caught out in rain and dirt recently etc

What amazes me is the amount of muck and water that sprays up from behind the CT

Even after a minor shower, the back of the bike is filthy - even though I've got a rear wheel hugger fitted

Any ideas on sorting this prob?

I've got a Pyramid Ducktail, fits to the rear number plate, cuts down the muck on the back of the bike quite significantly. There are already a few threads on this, I would post a link for you but as I'm on my phone and my teens are a distant memory I don't know how to do it.

I never take my topbox off so it acts as a giant mudguard  :012:

A ducktail is the way to go mate.
