Front Fender Adapter Kit '79 to 80', Enables Adapting Early Front Fenders (Short) on Front Forks 1979 TT500 and 1980 and Later XT500 (suitable fender see e.g. item 50041)
Finally the XT500 can be converted from 1980 onwards (with aluminium tank) to the beautiful slim front fender of the XT500 until 1979. The adapter sits inconspicuously under the lower yoke, the mudguard is perfectly positioned in the centre of the inner tubes and is still decoupled with rubber bushings. The wiring harness can also run between the triple clamp and the fender as originally planned. Comprehensive illustrated mounting instructions are included.
Suitable for fenders XT500-' 79 and TT500-' 78: 50052,50273,50274,50717,50725,50059 as well as the' Export' front fenders with ventilation slots: 50041,50064,50068,50066 .
Background info: During the model change from 1979 to 1980 - caused by the new fork - the recesses for the fork inner tubes in the fender were moved backwards, therefore the early version of the front fender fits only with the help of our adapter for XT500 models '80 and later.
