790 duke fitted with Husky fender?

Looks to me like these bikes are using the same swingarm. Has anyone tried fitting the Husqy rear fender from the Vitpilen 701, which would move license plate, brake light, and turn signals from the subframe to a swingarm mounted splash guard?


edit: well.. maybe not the brake light.. unless you replace the husqy turn signals with multi-function lights

That's interesting. Would really clean up the tail on the 790. Looks like you'd have to run your own wiring from under the seat down along the swingarm but shouldn't be too bad if you know what you're doing.

I asked my dealer, as well. Initially, he said that he doesn't *think* it would work--but he's tracking down part numbers to confirm whether there's an incompatibility issue. I'll update this, when he gets back to me. The only similar solution I've seen is the fender eliminator by access design, but it's $815US.

I did a quick look up on the part numbers. The Husky and KTM have different part numbers for the swingarm and they have a few differences but the location where the license plate holder arm mounts to looks identical on both. I'd give it a very good chance that it would bolt right on.

I may have went this route as I like that look. Curious as to what you find!

Keep the rubber side down!

OK, I got this info second hand. There are some slight differences, where the arm for the hugger would mate to the swingarm. Depending on what those differences might be--I have a dremel, and will fix it. A friend found someone who pulled the hugger from his 701, and I'm waiting to hear about price.

I would personally not do anything on a modern (cast) swingarm with a dremel.
On older ones with steel tubes maybe yes.

At that point I would opt for the mustard. Dirt cheap in comparison and the fitment is spot on. I love it!
