    Front fender options

    Hello, Iím new to the Forum and have mostly just been reading and trying to come up to speed. I used the search option but couldnít find the information I need on this subject.
    I just purchased a 1995 TW which has a broken front fender. Both sides on the fender are split up the side leaving only the top holding it together. My question is, where do I find a stock blue front fender besides lucking out and finding one the right color on EBay for a fortune? Iíd like to keep it as close to original as possible and donít want to go the high fender mount, but are there any aftermarket options that are nice that someone can recommend?
    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Welcome!

    Without going to a high fender, I think finding a stock fender is your only option. Maybe find a good price on one that isn't the right color, and paint it to match?
    Now I must hurry on... for there they go, and I am their leader!

    Welcome from NE Oregon. I don't know of any after market fenders that are low mounted like the stock one, just the high fender conversions. A dealership may be able to order you a color matched stock fender, but it would be new and your other plastics are probably faded, so it wouldn't be exact anyway. And it would probably be expensive.
    My 2009 came with a black front fender and the rest of the bike is white with blue graphics. I have been thinking about a high fender conversion in white and could then sell my black stock front fender if you are interested. I don't know a price yet. Let me know if you have any interest.

    Thanks for the link to boats.net, LT Larry. Itís listed as not available at this time and Iím guessing it wonít be anytime soon. Iíll keep an eye on them.
    Mountain Yawp, you may have a solution to the problem. I also agree with your thoughts on the new one being slightly non-matching due to the other plastic fading, and the fact that the dealerships can be very proud of their OEM parts. But it would be preferable to painting as the paint would be even harder to match and susceptible to being scratched. If you do decide to go with the high fender, drop me a PM and let me know what youíd like in exchange for it. In the mean time Iíll keep looking for a blue one. Who knows, with the power of ďThe ForumĒ I may prevail! Lol

    Actually, a black fender on a 1995 wouldn't look bad at all. Black goes with nearly anything....just ask your wife.

    Do you have all the pieces of the fender? If so, you may embark on a project to repair it as the cheapest option.

    I am looking into repairing it. Iíd need to epoxy some custom splices to the inside to re-enforce it. Any suggestions what type of epoxy to use?

    As for black ones..... arenít they larger?

    Plastic epoxy. I have used this to bed in and seal a broken fender after first stitching pieces together with fine wire laced through numerous pre-drilled holes. Repair still good after about 30 years, will take picture tomorrow if you like.
    This should be the same epoxy I used in the past, purchased from Lowe's 2 days ago. Should be yellow-is with very odd smell. Nice and elastic unlike most every other epoxy. Discovered during my R/C racing days. Rough up bonding surface first. I like to take a razor blade and make numerous cross cut micro-keyways for the epoxy to get a mechanical bight. Mix 2 parts well, then mix some more.loctite.jpg

    Thanks Fred! Iíll pick some up and try it. Iíd love to see a pic if you have time.

    My next issue is trying to find the part number for the two grommets on each side of the front of the rear fender where it attaches to the frame. All the parts sites show the fender and all of the parts except those two grommets. Maybe Iím missing something.
