Thanks Towerman. I’ve seen this source before, but was hoping to buy from within the U.K. because I understand that Brexit now means having to pay vat and (unknown) import duties on anything from EU. If the Aprilia mudguard fits quite easily, that would probably a be cheaper option and easier to buy.

Complete kit witch comes cheaper than my fitting. But when I did it, that kit was not available.

Monsieur Quebec, was it an easy and obvious diy “adaption” of that Aprilia rear mudguard or did it involve tricky ‘engineering’? I like the idea but am not a good mechanic. Any tips/advice appreciated.
It would be very interesting to know what adaptations you had to make to get the Aprilia mudguard to fit. I’m sure I’ve read of others using this guard on a Versys, so your advice might have a wide audience. Thanks.

The mud gard in Towarman's link is the same as mine. As said, this comes with the fixing plates.

When I installed mne, I got to buy all the apprilia parts 70€, I got the adapters made in a machine shop for 100€.

At 113$, it's a deal. But if you are intersted, Had a post on a french Versys Forum but all the pictures are lost. I'll make a new post here someday.

Thanks LpQ. Understand now. Variance is all in the fixing plates. Cheers.
