Just an observation for any one who has fitted one of these.

I've had one on for over a year now.
Whilst cleaning the front mudguard I noticed hairline fractures in the plastic.:frown2:
This has been 'encouraged' by the extra weight flexing just above the mountings.

I might see if an internal metal strap might help reduce this movement.
Or just take it off and clean the muck off more often.!

ride safe...

I assume you are referring to the front fender? The beak extension.

Was considering... but now no so much now. Anybody else with experience with this?

Do you have any pictures?

as requested - 2 x photos.
the single stress has gone right through the corner.
the multiple cracks have just cracked the gloss surface [so far]

initial plan is to strengthen that corner with some woven fibre-glass + resin.
it'll all be on the inside out of sight.
Thanks for pointing this out, something to check, especially shortly before the warrantee period expires.


Don't fix it, get it replaced under warrantee.
