The other day, I replaced the back part of a front fender, and the customer had stated "this will be the 4th time its been replace. The last time I had the rubber part of the extension cut off, and it's happened again."

Since I see so much of this, primarily on trikes, I felt the need to share what I know. First off, in the 2 wheeled world, there's one lesson most 2 wheeled GL1800 riders quickly learn ... that GL1800s like pavement, or they fall over !!! However, since trikes don't fall over, trike riders seem to forget that rule, and I often see them leave the pavement to complete u-turns and such. Here is what probably happens, and how to correctly assess the damage for a proper repair. Most DIYs can easily replace these parts.

More parts to check

This rotor cover has no cracks, but I've seen damage in the read area, so don't forget to check for them.

Here are the rearward ones. Often I find cracks around these mount holes.

In my world ... I've seen 1 fender broken that had an OEM Hondaline extension as shown in the 3rd picture in the first post. However, just last week, I replace 2 fenders that had longer extensions on them. When a fender extension is added, finding one broken, is so common, that I wish I could afford to stock all fenders in all colors.

Cheers and out for now
