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.

about 3 places.

wondering if that might be an easier route to take to repair.
