Shortening the rear mudguard means there's less to guard you from the mud. So you'll be wetter -probably a lot wetter- with a short'un.

Thought that looks so. Nice though was looking to find out where the water would leave the mudguard as in what position Phil

I have the Bike Brothers short rear fender, so I hope my opinion will count some.
Absolutely stunning piece of kit BUT if I lived in a wet climate, there is no way I would be able to live with it. And I would revert to stock.
Even riding over a puddle, my back and rear of helmet were sprayed with (dirty) water.
Happened numerous times - and always the same result; whether a puddle, a bit of water or a lot. Horrible !!!

So I admit - I am a strict fair weather rider when it comes to enjoying my Bobber...

Which forward controls are you going with ?
Triumph or Freespirits ?
I think you’ve made a wise choice - as the UK can be quite wet and at times :wink2:
