Has anyone successfully used a Multistrada 1100 front fender on their Hypermotard 1100? How about another model fender?

I haven't really looked at the Multi fender but I have been looking for a full front fender for a while. I was looking at the Triumph thruxton R fender. I have not measured one yet but it looks like a possibility. To me the Hyper 1100 just does not look quite right without a full fender, looks like something is missing or that you took a hacksaw and cut it in half. Call me old school I guess. Also if you get caught in the rain you get messed up with spray. Seems like Ducati would have made a full fender for it as an option.

Yes, I agree and is why I'm looking for a full fender. I bought my Hyper used with an LSL headlight and the Ducati beak/headlamp was long gone. I've never liked that anyway and never liked the first gen Hyper's until I saw this one without the beak. However, it needs a full front fender or I need to take that rear half off entirely as it doesn't look right. Hopefully someone else has experimented and will chime in with the solution.

I'm doing the same on my project. When I find a solution I'll report back. Don't wait on me though, the fall is very busy. :wink2:

Hhhhmmmmm. Tossed up a spare ft finder for my 996 and bungied it to the forks. Not bad. Will need to make an adaptor for the mounting, but it looks clean.

So you guys adding a wheel hugger front fender and deleting the upper headlight fairing/fender?

Or just supplemental coverage?

I did a search and found a pic of Phil's bike, a poster on one of the forums. He used a first gen multi fender , but only the front half. This leaves a gap between the two fenders. I personally don't like the gap but otherwise it looks workable. I believe the front holes are a match to where the fork guards attach to. I believe you could let the rear overlap the existing carbon fender and do a little trim work. Maybe silicone the two fenders together on the rear or make a new bracket for the rear.

The UPS truck rolled up just a couple hours ago and my first fender idea won't work. I bought this: 2013 Ducati Multistrada 1200 S Pikes Peak Corse Front Fender Carbon Fiber | eBay and it just doesn't work how I wanted. Plus, it has the upturned lip on the rear edge that I don't like- which I didn't see until today. I really wanted it to work because it looks fantastic, but I want to keep the rear fender and add another one up front. So, I have another idea which I'll look into but it won't happen for a few weeks.

If anyone would like this fender, I'll sell it for my cost of $102. It's a beautiful fender that could be easily repaired with fiberglass underneath.
