Ordered (Givi)  and willow post pics on fitting

Well, received the Givi mudguard and installed it today, 5 minute job. Looks fantastic... BUT I need to remove it. There simply isn't enough clearance at the bottom, it's almost touching the tyre. At the top there is only 4mm too. There is almost no play to adjust it so it will be sent back.. Not a happy bunny coz it looks great...

That's disappointing.
I presume it would be possible to "slot" the hole for the wheel spindle to allow the mudguard to slide back to give sufficient clearance.  Maybe that's what Givi will do.
Since I don't have a centre stand, the mudguard might (will) also get in the way of my paddock stand.  I would need to come up with a solution for that too .....

Thanks for posting the photos, and good luck with Givi.   :003:

Slotting would mean risk of moving, and would need a milling machine so I think givi need to extend the support bars 10mm or so.

Hi,
Iíve checked mine (a givi too) and no problem like you. Maybe itís a manufacturing problem.
See my pictures

Yes, yours looks better. There is a tiny amount of play before you tighten the  axis bolt but then it slots into a fixed positioin and there is no way to get mine clear of the tyre.

Different tires too.  Even when they are the same size there are variations.

Hi Roy got my Givi/Kappa today fits perfect and on a wet ride it completely protects the licence plate area.

You'd have to think that's the problem.  Michelin Road 5s maybe ever so slightly prouder??

That's seriously wrong from Givi then, lack of product development and quality control. It shouldn't depend on what tyres or wear you have.
Maybe it's just the soldering on my bikes swing arm....? I don't know whether to try a 3rd time or not...
