Front Fender
« on: February 26, 2018, 10:07:36 pm »
2015 C14.  Still fairly new to this wonderful bike.  Just came back from a 40 mile ride and was looking at something on the bike when I saw something laying in the gap where the exhaust pipes come out. It was the back 6" of the front fender. It had broken off. If it didn't land there, I'd probably never would of known. So.....Has this sort of thing happened before?  I lost my toe hold (while stopped) last week and put the baby on her side, but the front wheel is so protected in there, I just cannot see how the fender could break.
And yes, I'm in the process getting lowering links, and maybe those little crash bars (T-Rex?).

I might as well ask now.....suggestions on replacement/repair/live with it?

Sounds like an aftermarket fender extender.

agree with the fender extender. they're usually held on with double-sided tape
The black part in this pic is the fender extender: https://www.murphskits.com/product_info.php?products_id=276
If it ain't fast and won't corner... Crome it.
