BMW wanted to emphasize the lightness of the GS with the airy sub frame. Unfortunately this leaves the riders’, and especially the passengers’ legs exposed to dirt and wetness. Water is splashed unhindered over the boots and thighs. The result is a soaking wet and soiled rider and passenger. But not just the users of the bike are affected; the water penetrates deep into any part of the rear sub frame and especially the rear shock absorber unit, battery and final drive. Any unprotected technical or metal part subjected to a constant torrent of dirty water will show effects. Oxidation and corrosion damage are predetermined, and cleaning the rear of the bike is a time-consuming task.
The easily attached “Inner Fender” puts an end to all sorts of half baked solutions and protects the complete rear of the bike in a very impressive manner. In addition to providing excellent protection the fender also visually closes the gap between air box and rear wheel. The fender is made of tough black ABS plastic, and is quickly attached to the bike. It is held securely to the bike with strong cable ties, which means that anyone with basic skills can fit this part in a matter of minutes. The pictures of our “with and without test” speak more than words, the difference is simply astonishing.

|Easy to install, good built, have not tried it yet, but I am sure it will reduce the dirt and mud that sprays around when off-road or during rain. After seeing my friend during a rain moment with their GSs I decided to get this piece, if it does half what it is suppose to do, this will be a gain over not having it.|
|As the article in the catalog shows, the fender liner DRAMATICALLY reduced dirt and mud spreading beyond the wheel well|
|This fits exactly into the designed spot on the GSA with no gaps, even with the complex countours of the underseat tray. It has good clearance for the shock, swingarm, and tire. It eliminates almost all of the tire spray and mud on the shock and reduces the spray that blows out the sides. If you can operate a zip-tie you can install this inner fender. Maybe a little pricey for a piece of molded plastic, but you know the price when you buy it, and it does what it is supposed to do.|
|It fits well,easy. Looks like an integrated part.|
