919 rear splash guard/hugger

Hey new to this forum, got my bike about a month ago. So far so good. I was wondering if any one tried to install a rear splash guard on their 919 similar to the ones on the Ducati Multistrada's or BMW's. I am not talking about the one under the seat but the one the covers a portion of the rear tire. No luck in finding anything about it pertaining to 919's.

Welcome!

You mean like an extension to the rear hugger? Never seen anything like it for the 919....

Hit up Mf1ve or AllanB, they like to fab stuff up...

the Stock mud-flap that comes on the bike works really well! to us, it's known as the "shovel" since it's shaped as such. do you not have the stock mud flap?

I've wondered this too. On a related note, does anyone know if eliminating the fender results in water all over the rider? I've wanted to eliminate my fender for "aesthetics" however I commute year round, and dont want to suffer a stripe on my back. (thus my interest in seeing if a different type of splash guard can be or has been used.)

He's talking about something like this, hugging the back of the tire:

ah ok! that's hella cool! i'd totally rock that, lord knows i could use it with all the rain we get here hmmm, i might have to see if i can fab something up, ideas ideas! it is so functional it makes total sense.

yes bocom, you'd get water not just in a line up your back, but literally all over your back. the stock fender works really well but is such an eyesore. even the trimmed version doesn't work near as well. i'm currently running the comp werks fender with a piece of aluminum extended down and i still get water all over the back of the bike in the rain, its just not directly focused on my back lol.

edit: i've looked at pictures of the multistrada and i cant find a picture that gives me enough of a viewing angle to see what it looks like from the side, how it bolts up to the swingarm, etc. much less find the measurements of it to see if it will clear the 919's tire.

that's awesome ariannasdaddy! great find! hmmm... i wonder if we could use the multistrada lower chain guard to attach to the 919 oem chainguard and that would serve as a base for the splash guard... the back end of the 919 chain guard is pretty flimsy though since it lacks support that far back so the idea likely wouldn't work. most likely would have to fab something up that can move with the axle bolt when the chain gets adjusted.

times like this, i REALLY wish had an actual shop with a bunch of power tools... i likely won't be able to move forward with this sadly.

The triumph dealer has a multistrada on the floor and I had to walk by it 3 or 4 times before i could form an opinion.... and as much as I like function... I didn't like the looks of it at all.

As for rear fender functionality? my wife's old sv650 came with a fender elim kit on it. we ended up on a 45 minute ride in the rain and she was soaked. I told her that it was cuz she didn't have a fender. Now that she's sold her bike and is strictly a passenger on mine... I'm not allowed to get rid of the fender.

speedprotege, would you be willing to take some close up pictures of the splash guard? and maybe some measurements? would love to know if i could mount it some where on our chain guard and still clear the rear tire.

I'll see what I can do. It's about half an hour a way - I might be over that way next weekend.

Interesting on the splash guard... it'd be cool to get rid of the fender all together and just mount the plate on the guard. Run the wires for LED turn signals and an LED light for the plate.

Since I picked up my 919 I have wondered how to go about fabbing up a rear hugger like the ones on beemers and ducatis. I particularly like the one on the Diavel with the license plate on it.
