Front fender needed

While trying to locate a new rattle on my 03 K1200LT I discovered that my front fender has started to separate. Anyone with a 99-04 front fender, preferably black but I can have it painted? Thanks!!

Re: Front fender needed

You can buy ABS plastic two part epoxy at a parts store & fix it from the back side.

Re: Front fender needed

Hi , Like Dave say's patch it up on the inside. I bent some flat aluminum plate up & pop riveted it up first to mechanically hold it in place together, then I patched up the crack . You only see the head of the pop rivet, & it kind of looks like it belongs there anyway..

Re: Front fender needed

Mine has been patched for over 7-8 years, and holding nicely. If you catch it soon, perhaps gives you a better chance the repair will last. Good luck-couple tubes of JB weld or other epoxy way cheaper than the new OEM fender!

Re: Front fender needed

I patched mine multiple times with all kinds of different methods and the PO had done the same. i thought I had it nice and solid but it fell off somewhere in Texas. I watched Ebay until my color and year came around and got a perfect match. Whatever you do, don't tighten down too much on the sides of the fender as I think that really creates the problem. ON a black fender, some pop rivets would be fine and no one will ever notice them.If my latest fender starts to crack away, I will go the metal and pop rivet method myself.

Re: Front fender needed

The fender is ABS plastic if you don't use the correct epoxy it won't stick very well. The correct epoxy will weld to the ABS plastic.
