Use the search function at the top left of the screen.  Lots of threads on this!

I have a front fender extender.  IIRC it's a Puig.  It helps keep crud and rocks off the radiator and exhaust.  I've also installed an Evotech Performance radiator guard.  Both are recommended!

I've fitted both. The fender extender is the more effective of the two and, as sweatmachine has written, keeps a lot of the crap off the front of the bike. A radiator guard is an absolute must. IMO. The hugger extender helps keep the underside of the seat and the suspension unit cleaner but only has a smaller effect on what gets thrown onto the panniers. I'd still fit both if I bought another Versys.

Where do they get the names for these colours?
