Fender extender

Just fitted this, carbon fibre fender extender. Perfect fit, they said it could just be stuck on but I decided to also use a couple of these small plugs.

Looks good and probably works even better!

What kind of glue did you use besides the clips?

They say to use silicone sealant but I used double sided numberplate tape. It felt solid with just the tape but I wanted to make sure it didn't come off.

Looks great!  :37:

I have one waiting to be installed that I purchased from an ebay seller in Spain.
Wouldn't be the same one, would it?

I like the idea of the additional mounting hardware versus just relying on adhesive.
Wow, what a boring motorcycle.
-no one, ever.

I fitted a Skidmarx front fender extender as it was long and that was what I was looking for, it came with some double sided sticky tape, but I applied a bead of silicone and then three SS small bolts and its as solid as a rock, plus there is plenty space between the nuts and the front tyre    :002:

Carbon fiber looks fine!
