I reckon the Bluebird Engineering carbon one on eBay for about 25 is better - certainly deeper. Mine's held on just with builders' sealant - seems fine.

There is a wider rear-top mudguard extension avaiable from Triumph for the TS that helps cut fling from rear wheel upwards to topbox area. It's meant for the Far East markets, but I got one for mine - about 30 iirc. This was for the earlier gen TS, but I imagine would fit latest ones.

My KTM and Weestrom both have the front fender extender, as does the Tiger.  I only fitted the KTM one, using the provided plastic push rivets and adhesive tape.  I cleaned the surfaces with acetone and lightly scuffed them, plus ran a bead of silicone across to prevent muddy water running through the gap and down the outside of the extender.  Has so far held up to Texas heat and Alaska cold as well as many miles of vibration, mud spray and gravel hits.

Several other bikes have had home-made fender extenders either from bits of rubber mud flap, heavy rubber floor mat or black PVC pipe (split, heated and spread out.)  Those were all bolted on through drilled holes - No problem with that attachment method either.

Rear "hugger"-style fender on Tiger does seem a bit short so I'll be looking for

I fitted the rear PP extender using the glue provided, then sealed the end.

I fitted the front extenders to both my Tigers using silicone sealant, same method as Paullie. They've stayed put.

The external use stuff is pretty good.

I nearly didn't buy the Pyramid one, as I didn't like the logo at the bottom, as appears in their advertising. I was quite relived when I found it was plain  :152:

Hmmm, after an aborted attempt to fit a Pyramid Plastics Fenda-Extenda, that didn't fit any where close (Nor apparently did it fit the Tiger 800 - had to give an ebay refund...  :232:)

Found one for a Suzuki (knowing my bike history it's for a GS500) and managed to fettle it on with some sticky pads and modified screws.

Looks a lot deeper than the Triumph one would have been. let's see how much crud this keeps out of radiators.


I never touched it, you can't blame me, it went off when I was cleaning it.

That looks so much better than the Pyramid offering.

Will get me one of those on my 2020 Tiger 1050 SuperSport . :164:
