Front fender issue
Written by goldwingman40 on 6/20/2010 at 03:36 am

Mike & Mac,
For your info, one person modified a ST1100 fender and modified the PC front
fender brackets to hold it, also someone did put the complete front end off a
ST1100 on a PC so he could get rid of the 17" tire and go to a more common 18".
Also several have changed the front fender . One replaced the forks with a later
set and small fender. I modified a early Yamaha R1, 1999-2001, and made aluminum
brackets to mount it on my 89 PC forks, repainted to match. Dan Burrell modified
some aftermarket fenders and made brackets for a few people, I think the fender
he used was from J C Whitney and is no longer available, not sure.

    There's a rubber rain guard on the front fender? Are you talking about the plastic disc covers? If so, trash them and go coverless. I made some brackets and got rid of the covers. Maybe Dick will sell you his if he didn't use them? I like the

      Better term is the rubber mud flap that screws into the bottom rear of the fenders. I also noticed that the tab on the right disc cover broke off. It locks on the bracket just below the axle bracket. I haven't tried eBay yet.

    Mike, I've got a decent, actually, quite nice, front fender for an 89 that I would let go reasonably. Mind you it's not new, but it's still nice. Don't know what their going for but I'd be gentle with you. Rights to your first born would prob
