Fenda Extenda

Just installed the Puig Front Fender Extender for the Kawasaki Versys 650 / 1000.

Not much for instructions - but it appeared to go together quite well. I added a bead of blue RTV silicon all the way around the edge because (in my mind) it would help to keep all the road crap from getting between the two parts - and might actually help to better hold the assembly together.

It makes one a bit nervous, drilling four holes into a perfectly brand new motorcycle fender...... and smashing those little plastic push-pins into place......

I've done this on a couple of bikes I've owned. I did not want to drill holes so what I did was use JB Weld. I roughed up the matching surfaces, applied the stuff, let it dry and that was it. It was probably on there more firmly than with screws.

Thanks for the posts; I've got one waiting to be installed the first time I have to pull the front wheel off for any reason. I've put them on prior bikes, always using the supplied screws -- I see they now use the plastic rivets. Funny how nobody feels safe relying solely on the supplied adhesive strips, I know I never have. :^)

Almost 9 years ago, I installed my Fenda Extenda using only Shoe Goo. It's still holding fine.

I could not bring myself to drill any holes in my front fender.

In the instructions, it says that the adhesive strips are only to hold the fender extender in place in order to drill the holes.

Ya could add some more strips, let it sit a couple of days - and then it would probably work just fine

I removed the crap doublesided tape from my Pyramid fender extender replacing it with 3M acrylic doublesided automotive grey mount tape. I lined the outside profile of the fender extender and then laid some strips across.

Been over three years now and have even run over kangaroo road kill and its still on.

No holes required.

BTW. the top rivet looks like it is off center.... measure 3 times cut once.
