Could anyone please advise me how you attach a Simson mud flap to a mudguard? Small rivets are supplied for this task, though I’ve asked at several motorcycle shops and my engineering friends no-one is sure how this is done. Is there a special tool for this job?
Front or back, it’s the same process. Line up and mark where the mudflap needs to be. Then drill holes in both items – mudflap (if not pre-drilled) and mudguard. If using pop rivets, be sure not to drill holes which are bigger than the rivet diameter, and use washers both sides.
A better way might be to use nuts and bolts as they are easier to remove provided you use stainless items.
