Newbie looking for parts
« on: November 10, 2019, 06:18:20 PM »
Hi all I have have just recently purchased a k3 550 which is in good condition but as with everything it could be better so stripping and rebuilding so it’s eventually  really good.  I am after a genuine rear mud guard as mine has dents in. It doesn’t have to be mint just solid and not dented as I would get it re plated.

Hope someone can help as they seem pretty rare 2nd hand  for a k3


Thanks all

AFAIK the K3 guard is the same as the others, 500/550F the difference being that the K3 had 2 captive bolts which went through the frame and were held my 2 shouldered nuts. These replaced the 2 bolts and the captive nuts welded to the guard the 500/550F has. Other than that they were the same as far as I know.

I'd say you'd certainly get away with fitting a 500/550F rear guard and just using bolts and nuts to secure.
Don't play stupid with me, I'm better at it
