How to fit your free MBUK mudguard

Keep the mud and slop out of your eyes and face with a free MBUK mudguard!

Although it’s obvious to some, mudguard fitting can require patience and attention to detail to get the best results. If it isn’t put on straight then it can buzz the tyre or get damaged. Follow our simple steps to perfectly attach your MBUK mudguard, free with issue 348.

Fit the zipties

Hold the mudguard flat, with the graphics facing up and the front (short end) pointing away from you. Thread a ziptie down through one of the front holes and up through the matching rear hole. The serrated side of the ziptie should face upwards. Repeat with the other holes.

Present the mudguard

Bend the mudguard and slot it between the tyre and fork arch so that the short end is at the front and the holes with the zipties inserted sit on either side of the fork legs and fork arch.

Tighten the zipties

Tighten the zipties to pull the mudguard into place, making sure that the ziptie around the right-hand fork leg goes under rather than over the brake hose.

Finish off

Cut of the end of each ziptie as close to the head as you can with a pair of snips. Rotate each ziptie to hide the cut end and prevent it snagging your clothing.
