I own a 2004 Stumpjumper FSR Pro and am looking at the 2004 Mudflap Shock Protector which is available on the specialized American website.

Since Specialized does not have an online shop, could you guys be kind enough to let me know the price in the states and how good the product is in protecting the shock from mud etc. Even better show me a picture of a Stumpy with the mudflap installed!

I'm from Malaysia so if the price is right and the product is good, I will have to ask a favour from a buddy of mine who stays in Arizona to pruchase the product for me and send it by snail mail all the way to Malaysia.

Many thanks in advance mates.

:D

not available anymore ???

Hi!

My mate in the States tried to get it for me (I'm from Finland) for my Enduro but he said that Specialized informed him that the mudflap shock protector was discontinued and couldn't be ordered anymore. :( Now that is really strange because it was a new-in-2004 product...
Hope you can still find one.

Thanks for the quick reply mate.

Now, that's strange! Since both of us are looking for the
same thing, let's hope that someone here can help us!

Cheerio then.

They are sold out, but will probably make another batch because the 05's aren't that different. It really works good and looks cool, retails for 14.99 USD.
It doesn't stand out like seat post mounted fenders and is mainly there to keep junk off the shock.
I'll post a pic soon, at work at the moment.

jonjon,

Would appreciate if you could post a pic for us here! What's the weight and dimensions if you don't mind mate?

JerryBoneJr,

I do have a shock pretector boot but reckoned that the original mud flap might do better and at the same time as a second layer of protection.


Thanks for all the response guys and Archangel, I hope you are following this thread since both of us are interested in the same product.

73's all round.
:D :p

For sure, mate...

Let's hope that Specialized brings more of them to market...

BTW: I'm using a Speed Stuff neoprene boot over the shock and it is working allright. Still would be happier with mudflap because the shock would be exposed and easier to clean...

Hi i got fed up trying to get one for myself so i cut out a piece of clear lexan and Zip Tied it around the lower shock body, weight was not an issue and it looks cool i'll take some pics tonight and post it.

Mudflap

Here's a 'far away' pic of the mudflap. (Vail, Colorado)

I had to send it to a mates place in Colorado as they don't send to NZ either.

Definitely reduces the amount of mud (& snow) on the shock. Weighs next to nothing.

kiwirider,

Very cool mate!

Now, how do I get one? It is such a hassle getting parts especially for us guys from Asia and Asia Pacific regions!

73's to you mate and I love that pic of your Stumpy in all the snow! :D :p

Parts in NZ

Cruz,

The NZ distributors don't stock the complete range of Specialized accessories. eg the mudflap, touch-up paint etc.

Does anyone know why Specialized doesn't post overseas? They are missing out on a massive market. I'm lucky to have contacts in the US that can send the parts on to me.

Hey, what's the riding like up in Brisbane? Thinking about taking a long weekend over there.

Make Your own

Cut a piece of 3mm neoprene 180mm x 75mm and zip tie to frame just above forged insert, thread through link. see pic, note clean shock and lots of Godley Heads track mud. no trapped condensation like lizard skin.
