Mud Flaps

Bought nice mud from Ebay, not so easy to fit, without rear wheel removal, but now done. Fronts still to fit but had to vet my speedway bike ready for tomorrow. Details to follow on fitting the fronts.

Re: Mud Flaps

I'm loathe to fit mudflaps myself, increased drag=increased fuel consumption.

Re: Mud Flaps

TopCat, the only thing I will say is that the flaps on the rear still fail to reduce spray or dust from the road hitting the back window, I thought when I fitted mine it would reduce the dirt on the back but they don't.

Front ones do make a difference and back ones stop the bumper getting dirty, especially with wider alloys on board

Re: Mud Flaps

Ahh, I see the point! The little patch of dirt on the rear bumper and the big mud splashes up the sides are a common sight on most Doblos I've seen, if they help then it's all good.

Still, I just wash mine.

Re: Mud Flaps

Isn't the muck on the back end created by the vortices coming off the car? To prevent this, I think you need to add a spoiler?
