Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that the 2 tabs the hold the back of chrome caliper covers to the front's rear fender were snapped off. If so, do you think that by not securing the rear of the caliper covers put undo pressure to the front's rear fender?
Yeah, I learned the hard way! :evil:I imagine hundreds have been broken by fender extenders. Just the wind at speed is a lot of force on the rear of the front fender. Riding in the rain at highway speeds would really put pressure on the extender. Not worth it in my book!

Great idea, will do that on my new one.I reinforced my rear fender by painting the underside of the fender with truck bed liner...a few coats around the mounting bosses and the rest of the underside creates another fender bonded to the plastic fender..I've repaired cracked fenders the same way...pretty easy to do and it strengthens the fender.
