Question Looking for mudguard/tire hugger/splash guard

Hello,

I'm riding KTM Duke 390 (EU) version, which doesn't include rear tire hugger. Curretly I've made a lot of search, but unfortunately I could find any online indian parts website that will offer this item. Searching in Ebay, Amazon wouldn't help either. Please, let me know if someone knows where I could buy it online, where international shipping is also supported. Thanks a lot.

Pyramid plastics do make one

But I'm not sure if its much of an improvement over the original.

This company claims to ship worldwide but I can't vouch for them:-

Thanks for the reply @roadster.

Here is the aftermarket solution that I've ordered today:

Splash Guard for Ktm Duke200 BSIGRXXNKS

Looks much better than the original one.

Thumbs up

@loon as I promised, this is my opinion about this tire hugger:

First of all, the quality of product is good and overall look is nice. Difference between splashes that I got has been reduced up to 95% less. If my back and helmet were completely mucked when I was riding through puddle or rainy day, after installing and riding about 50-60 km/h I could see only one drop of water on my pillion seat. So, it's the nice choice to get this item, if you're planning to go tail tidy kit on Duke 390. The only thing needs to be changed or cut off a little bit: chain guard, which is a bit too long from the back side (that's just for a nicer look). That's all, providing some photos.

P.S. Don't forget to correctly adjust it. The photos has been taken during the adjustment process and we were testing it with water on a stand. Then made some corrections to the metal for moving it closer to the tire as much as possible and close the gap, which is not shown on a photos.
