My fender extender was originally "professionally" fitted with both the sticky pads and plastic push "rivets". The rivets popped and sticky failed and extender escaped.

I recovered fender extender and used marine stainless nylock nuts and bolts, with clear nylon washer on painted side, using existing the rivet holes. Job done.

 :762:  yes I used S/S bolts and self lock nuts too.... I didn't consider  the supplied rivets to be strong enough

I fitted mine with the sticky pads and Push rivets,  think I'd better nip out and check it's still there   :5:

TBH I thought the S/S bolts looked better than the rivets  :169:

I wish Id read this thread sooner. Yesterday was the first decent dry day since I fitted the Pyramid Plastics read hugger extension using just their sticky pads. Guess what? First run out and the d**n thing fell off and disappeared. I still want one fitted, so could anyone please advise me what spec/size these stainless steel self lock nuts and bolts are? Id also like to use a glue that works to help spread the stress away from the drill hole area, as clearly their are evil vibrations at work trying to shake off the extender! Any suggestions on which glue? Your experienced advice is much appreciated, thanks.

Contact glue with stainless steel bolts, lock washers and loctite.
This is a bloody great Bike....!

Thanks for the thread reference. Yes I wondered if Contact Adhesive or Araldite Epoxy type might be the answer. It makes sense. Cheers

... me too Goaters ... preparation is the key ... clean off with spirit based fluid and rub-down both surfaces with abrasive paper to improve the key. most Two-part epoxy adhesives will work if suitable for Plastics.
