Avant Fender Extender – R1200GS LC 2013 on, R1200Adventure LC 2014 on
The best extender fender in the world !
From the makers of the MudSling
The Avant Extender Fender offers these features:
EASY, NO DRILL INSTALLATION !
ADDS 5.5″ TO THE LENGTH
ADDS 2″ TO THE WIDTH
WIDE BUT LOOKS SLIM
The new MachineArt Avant fender extension INSTALLS WITHOUT DRILLING and adds an extra 5.5″ of length AND 2″ of width to better control mud, tar and rocks splashing back onto your pipes, engine and surrounding components.
This patent pending design installs with two self-locking screw clamps that grip the fender underside for a secure fit WITH NO DRILLING, while the angled back wings give you wide coverage without looking wide.
Injection molded in resilient polypropylene, it EXACTLY MATCHES the texture of the original mudguard.
There is nothing else like it. !!!
The front fender of the 2013 R1200GS_LC is both shorter and pointier at its trailing edge than the previous generation GS making the exposed painted surface of the front engine case even more vulnerable to stone damage.
The Avant reduces clean-up maintenance and helps keep the surrounding parts looking new for longer.
“A key feature of the Avant extender range is ease of installation with no hole drilling required, unlike other available fender extensions”, says Andrew Serbinski, Principal Designer and President of Machineart.
“Not only is it simpler to install, it looks beautifully integrated with the styling of the new GS and is transferable to another bike without leaving disfiguring holes behind, a benefit for resale value”. The Avant Fender Extender fits over the top of the fender and securely engages the tip of the stock GS LC front mudguard with a unique molded-in shoe. Two compression clamps grip the underside of the GS LC front mudguard on both sides, drawn tight with T25 Torx Head screws. The characteristic flared wing shape widens the splash coverage area without looking wide.
The fitment of the Avant with sump guards and Crud Catchers.
The Avant Fender extender will fit with all BMW and Touratech sump guards except with the BMW ‘Enduro’ sump guard when fitted to the Adventure model (but it is fine on the standard R1200GS LC model). The Avant will not fit with our Crud catchers are either the standard GS LC or Adventure LC.

FITTING THE AVANT WITH SUMP GUARDS (SKID PLATES)
1. With Cymarc Crud catcher – the two items basically do the same job and fitted together the clearance is very tight – not advised.
2. The Avant fits the 1200 GS LC with either BMW’s standard or optional Enduro skid plates.
3. The Avant also fits the 2014 GSA LC with BMW’s standard skid plate, but does not comfortably fit the GSA LC with the optional Enduro Skid Plate part #77148533747. The reason is that the front end caster angle was changed on the GSA, reducing clearance with the Enduro plate.
4. Two aftermarket skid plates that fit properly with the Avant on the GSA LC are made by Wunderlich and Touratech. Both do not extend as far forward of the engine centerline as does the BMW Enduro plate, leaving sufficient room for the Avant.
