I have the exact same crack on my 2015 XLR. I have some other warranty work to get done so I will probably have the dealer replace it when I get everything else done. For now I drilled a small hole at the end of the crack to prevent it from spreading any further.

Suggestion. When you get the new fenders, get a bunch of 3/16" pop rivet washers and make spacers to install between the fender and the camper to prevent over tightening and cracking the new ones.

It seems like just a couple small washers would prevent this. Just need to distribute the pressure out to a slightly larger area. But a make-shift bushing like OldCoot suggest would be ideal.

Mine aren't cracked... But are pulled down pretty tight. I'm going to get washers to hopefully stop any future cracking

I can't fix everything, but I can make it so nobody else can

When I repaired the blowout damage on our 08Flagstaff fender, I also put a washer on the outside to spread the load under the screws.
