Installation of the fender
Put center bolt into slot of rear fender’s part, put it to front part and screw the bolt. Don’t tighten it at this stage, let the mudguard to be loose.
Next, put the side bolts into slots, and screw them. Also don’t tighten them at the moment.
Optional leg straps
You can use the fender fixed just with the bolts, however it may “rattle” under vibrations.
Thus, if you ride rough terrain, I suggest to use straps for additional fixing of the mudguard to the fork legs.
Start from the right leg. Slide the strap into the tunnel inside the seal protector.
Fasten the strap by pulling the free end with flat nose pliers backwards. Position the strap perpendicularly to the front part of the leg.
That’s it! You can install you front wheel back and go for the test ride.
