  • Allen Key

Fitting

  • The ProGuard - BOLT ON is our direct mount front mountainbike mudguard designed for big spray and mud protection (DISC BRAKE ONLY)
  • IMPORTANT: You must apply the rubber adhesive side pads to the recess on the mudguard side wings, they protect your fork legs and provide vital stability and resonance damping
  • Clean the fork threads and the fork legs MAKING SURE YOU DRY THE THREADS THOROUGHLY
  • Select the correct bolts for your fork (details below) and run these into the threads WITHOUT the mudguard which will 'PRIME' and clean the threads before fitting, this part is important (YOU MAY NEED TO RE-TAP THE THREADS IF DEBRIS / PAINT IS LEFT IN THE THREADS FROM THE MANUFACTURE OF THE FORKS)
  • Squeeze the side wings of the mudguard hard and slide under the fork brace from the rear with the wheel and tyre still in place
  • You should be able to locate the mudguard and let go as the rubber side pads should hold it in place (ensure the slots are centrally aligned to the threaded holes on your fork)
  • Use the Allen key provided to screw the bolts in EVENLY a bit each side, go gentle to start off to ensure you DON'T CROSS THREAD THEM, stop once it's pulled together so you can still move it
  • Check alignment of the mudguard to ensure the distance from the tyre is even front and back, if you need to adjust the alignment then remove the mudguard and clip-on the appropriate TILT BRACKET found in the packaging (see example below). There are 2 TILT BRACKETS, one raises the front of the mudguard up and the other lowers it down (written on the TILT BRACKET)
  • You can also change the height of the mudguard by 6mm through the slots for more clearance. NOTE: Highest position offers the most stability with the best mud clearance
  • Finally tighten the bolts to the torque settings below: TORQUE SETTINGS: FOX, MARZOCCH & OHLINS = 1nm | SR SUNTOUR = 2nm
  • NOTE: ONLY USE THE RRP SUPPLIED BOLTS AS THESE ARE SPECIFICALLY SELECTED OR DESIGNED FOR THE MUDGUARD - USING OTHER BOLTS MAY INVALIDATE WARRANTY - REPLACEMENT BOLTS PACKS ARE AVAILIBLE
  • IMPORTANT - YOU MUST CHECK BOTTOM OUT CLEARANCE, LET MOST (BUT NOT ALL) OF THE AIR OUT OF YOUR FORK AND COMPRESS TO TEST IF THE CROWN OF THE FORK HITS THE MUDGUARD WHEN BOTTOMING. LOWER THE MUDGUARD THROUGH THE SLOTS IF YOU NEED MORE CLEARANCE, IF YOU CAN'T LOWER FURTHER THEN DO NOT USE

Important

  • Bolts must be checked after each ride to ensure the mudguard is secure
  • Remove mudguard every few rides to clean the brace / threads and fork legs
  • DO NOT USE IN STICKY / CLAGGY MUD AS IT MAY BLOCK AND CAUSE INJURY OR DAMAGE
  • MIN CLEARANCES - 18mm from the tyre when fitted and 10mm from the frame (on bottoming)
  • INSPECT BEFORE YOU RIDE: DO NOT USE IF DAMAGED IN ANY WAY AS CONTINUED USE MAY LEAD TO FAILURE OR INJURY

Weight : Mini 104 gr , Standard 130 gr (without bolts)
