In my opinion install was easy but I always do my own mechanic work. Looked great, perfectly blended into shape of fender. Rode a little under 100 miles and discovered fender was broke at left mounting holes. Don't recall hitting any big potholes and certainly didn't go over any speed bumps. No idea what caused it to break. New replacement rear fender half is $290.00 with tax.
I added the rear fender extension on my 03 Wing and it also ended up cracking the caliper covers after about 30,000 miles. The extra weight of the extension vibrates the fender and everything attached to it. Thatâ€™s why Hondaâ€™s fender stops where it does. Because thatâ€™s the weight and vibration the plastic parts can handle. I had to replace my rear fender and the side covers. A little expensive but without the extension I could have had damage from road debris in more expensive places. My friend had a rock or part of something that hit the front engine cover, cracking it, causing an oil leak, almost causing him to crash in the leaking oil, and leaving us stranded waiting for a flatbed to tow the bike 87 miles to a dealer. Even though I had to replace the other parts I still feel the extension was worth it. I have a 17 Wing now and have installed the fender extension on it. I guess itâ€™s all a matter of what youâ€™re willing to put up with. Iâ€™m sure after time Iâ€™ll have to replace them again. But Iâ€™ll take that over the alternative possibility.
looks great and does the job it is designed to do. However, it is not indestructible. Mine broke off following a blow from a chunk of thread from a truck tire separating in front of me.I have the short one I used first, but now have no screws to use to attach it to the front fender.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
