  • Changing of rear mud guard in FZ-S/FZ

    Hai all

    It was unfortunate when a grandpa hit my FZ-S in the rear mud guard and it broke. Felt sorry for the grandpa as he could not stop his M80 and had to bang my bike.

    Anyway I decided to change the rear mud guard. Since my FZ-S is the first generation model, the mudguard design is slightly different from the newer models. The newer model mudguard is a perfect fit and seems to be more effective in its job than the predecessor.

    Things required
    1. Rear mud guard
    2. Rear mud guard flap
    3. 10.00 mm spanner/socket
    4. 12.00 mm spanner/socket
    5. 8.00 mm spanner/socket
    6. 6 self tapping screws (to attach the rear mud guard flap.)
    7. 5.00 mm allen key
    8. Star screw driver

    Step one
    Remove the seat

    This would have given you an opportunity to dust off the under seat area.
    Got a $5 head? Get a $5 helmet.

      Well done, the saree guard has got a footrest attached to it, did this guard was fitted by the company itself or you have modified it by adding this footrest to it.

        Yes it has been almost 3 months since I have opened the seat. Closed the filter inlet and cleaned with cloth and vacuum cleaner.

          Great work.

          Only issue is that, if we remove the whole mudguard and put other things back to its place (except mudguard) the electronics and air filter box will be exposed to mud, water and other things. Any option for this??

          Cheerz!!
          The real beauty lies in throttle's twist!!

          Headlight can be replaced, Head cannot be. Wear a helmet.

            Sorry for the delay in responding. The footrest is an extra fitting which is available in the SVC or local shops.

              The only option is the mudguard and why do you want to remove the mudguard any reason?
