Hello and happy holidaze everyone.



I have had more than a few inquiries about the front fender I have. Well, it is on sale right now for $23 and thought I would pass it on.

Have a great holiday.



If anyone is feeling really festive, pick up an extra black one for me. I tore mine up on my last ride...way back in JUNE !!!!

The back of the fender was shredded a bit because my bike bottoms out on heavy braking. I am a novice at troubleshooting...maybe my fork oil is bad or low?

Any suggestion is welcome.

Hey Russ,

I think I told you on the phone call, but I think I put my fender on just a tad to far forward and when the forks would compress it would catch the knobbies. I ended up cutting the fender shorter so it works fine and of course, the forks are working just fine and I learned that after the fact.

Hey Howie,



I think you will be fine. The key is making sure the fender is not too far forward. That was my problem and that is why is was rubbing.

As far as the fender, I am not sure the difference. I do think that yours is a two piece fender. In the case that is does rub,

I finally settled on the polisport universal fender. I tried several others that were either too large or did not match the color of my plastics. I believe that the two piece fender above would be a little too large for our little tdubs but to each their own.

They ended up sending me an ALL blue one like yours brock. I was kinda pist but decided to put it on! haha It actually looks pretty good! and rubs ONLY when I pop a wheelie! haha I'm looking for an xt225 tank with the shrouds to help match the color (i've always like yamaha blue)a headlight fairing in black or blue!

For those who have already settled on something else, I wish you nothing but the best.



If you're still in the market, I'll second PalmStateCrawler's endorsement of the Polisport front fender. If you order the white fender from ProCycle the Polisport is the one you get, at least last I checked.



I have absolutely thrashed my TW with the Polisport fender/Procycle high fender mount combo up front for several hundred miles now and I have experienced zero problems.



The white is an excellent match for my TW plastics as well.



Just my $0.02
