      Hello MZ riders,

      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?

      Kind regards,

      Mark

      Hi Duncan, many thanks for your answer, as I’ve never tired riveting, would a ‘standard’ rivet gun work with the Simson rivets? Cheers, Mark

      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.

      Hello Derek,

      Thanks for the suggestion to use nuts and bolts, this might well be a lot easier, the mud flap and mud guard are both pre-drilled so this is not an issue.

      Kind regards,

      Mark
