Front Fender Replacement Recommendations

1342 Views 7 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Sidecar Bob
My 79 cx500 custom came without a front fender. No big deal but I think I want to replace it to help avoid all manner of potential debris from smacking me.

Also from a superficial perspective I can’t help but think motorcycles without fenders look kind of silly to me. I’ve seen OEM ones on eBay that will run me about $50 or $60 after shipping and taxes but I was wondering if any of you have any recommendations or suggestions.

For my requisite stupid question, will I need to remove my front tire in order to install whatever fender I get? Thanks!

If you do fit an aftermarket fork-brace...loosen all the other relevant fork and axle bolts (and tighten them up again...)....that will reduce the risk of stiction from uneven forces....
