2017 SR 400 front fender install 75 RD 350
« on: February 11, 2018, 06:20:24 PM »


After the brake upgrade I was unable to hook up the RH forward fender brace so I found this on ebay for cheap. I had to elongate the holes a bit and squeeze the fender a bit to fit it....

Looking real good. How much did it cost and is it lighter than the OEM?

I didnt compare the weights. It isn't heavy. I paid $40 and $28 shipping from an eBay vendor. It isn't perfect has a couple light scratches. It is a little wider than a stock RD fender so it has to be squeezed in there from the bottom ( front wheel has to be off) and the holes are about 1/2 a hole off so they have to be elongated inboard. Took about 2 hours to get it on and aligned. It is solid. I took the RD out for a pretty brisk test ride after and nothing moved after several pretty violent power wheelies.

Looks very good.  The one thing I worry about when fitting front fenders like this (and fork braces) is that there might be binding of the forks during travel.  Did you test for that?  If not, could you do it the next time you have the fork caps off?  Probably no problem if there was no side loading or pinching when mounting the fender, but you never know.

Thanks I will check it out. I pinched it together and shaped it before I put it in there and it went in pretty easy from the bottom. I appreciate the advice.
