Mudsling vs Wunderlich rear splash guard

I was just about set to purchase a Mudsling rear splash guard for my 2018 GSA and have read it may have tire rubbing issues with some tires.

Wunderlich has one which has a different bottom end with the middle removed for the last couple of inches.

Has anyone tried the Wunderlich one (for nearly double the cost of Mudsling?!?). I sent Wunderlich an email last week with no reply as of yet.

I have the Mudsling on my 2017 GSA with low suspension and while it is close it does not hit and I have run several different 50/50 tire brands

Right on and thanks for that. I forgot to mention I also have the lowered suspension and I should have added that.

You can get a Mudsling equivalent on eBay for around $30-35. I have one on my lowered 17 GSA and Spousal Unit has one on her 17 GS. She has a Mudsling on her other bike and the eBay version fits and performs just as well. It is just a hunk of plastic.

The only Chinese accessory which did its job on my 2018 GSA well and has no fitment issue.

No problems with Mud Sling

I have 2018 GS and factory lowered suspension, have used Michelin Anakee III and Metzeler Karoo Street with no problems.

I have a mudsling on a GS. I have seen a bit of rubbing but this has possibly been with my wife as passenger with a bit of suspension bounce. With just me on the bike, I can't see that hitting the tyre would ever occur.
