Well this evening I turned the valves from winter storage to summer useage mode. Went through the trailer inside and looks like that part lived the winter well. On the down side both fender skirts are cracked, if I had to guess screws were too tight and the cold weather caused em to crack. Hopefully I can get some warranty on those.

Will go see the dealer later in the week before work.

I saw a few brand new units on dealer lots this weekend with cracked fender skirts too. Hopefully they'll cover them for you, it's obviously a defect if the brand new ones are doing it too.

I want to design new fender skirts; bring them closer to the tires. Introduce some "aero" down the sides. The major anti-aero is the big flat buttinski.

Chalk up another one for cracked fender skirts. Brand new in Dec, first time out this past weekend and noticed the cracks. Called warranty specialist at dealer...wouldn't you know she was out today, but tomorrow is a different story. Hope it's covered.

I would hope it would be covered , when i picked mine up a few weeks ago noticed the cracked fender in the pdi . They did send me a new one but this was before i left the dealer lot , install is not hard but a pain , when i got the old one off there where 3 screw holes per screw , guess they had to move it a few times for the correct alinement , they should not ave screwed through all the points before knowing it was set right , Or this was the 3rd fender on this new unit. getting the light cover off is a pain ,the reflector is screwed and stuck on . if you screw up the tape you'll need to put a white backing on the reflector . I was able to peel mine off with out damage . get a good tube of black silicone , seal things up before installing fender , like extra screw holes and the wrap edges of the mounting areas etc. don't over tighten the thing does not fit like a glove , so take your time [if you get one] getting it located correctly . then a good bead of black silicone . it also helps to use the old one laid over the new to mark certian holes for the lights and reflectors

Finished up installing the Biker Bar for the wife's Sporty yesterday. Of course (after having been completely opposed to the idea at first,) she saw the one I had installed for my SG and then she wanted one! We'll see how well they work this weekend, heading to Castaways in OCMD Friday!
