removal of front fender advice please.
hi wingers

i've just bought a new fender for the damaged one on my bike.

what is the easiest way to change the fender please?

on most bikes, you just unbolt it and away you go.

things i've tried:-

1) remove the center folk brace, no room to do anything.

2) tried to remove the wheel, found the brakes need to be removed
as well.

i'm just sat here, reading the manuals and i can't find out the correct
and easy way of doing this?

any advice greatly received wingers!

regards and thanks buddies

I belive you have to remove the breaks and the caliper stays remove front wheel then you can get to the bolts for the fender

hi everyone

many thanks for your advice
and caliper image.

this might make you laugh.
having tried a few ways
to fit the front fender, i
managed to do it, thanks
for helping me.

i put the bikes engine on
a small bike jack, lifted the bike
a few inches.
removed both brake calipers
then removed the fork clamps
and front wheel
then slid the fender from back
to front and fastened it on.
put the wheel back on.
lowered the jack/bike and
fastened the fork clamps
back on (locktite!)
then tidied up the cables etc.

i thought the replacement went
well, started to tidy up the tools
and then noticed that I'd not put on
the chrome front fender trim!
doh!
good practice!... i laughed
out loud!

i will remember next time!

thanks buddies, all sorted now.

see the home made fender extender
i made from a cracked
goldwing inner mudguard!
didn't cost me any bucks!
:-)

.... as Ticky stated, its a Goldwing......
with any 'quickie' little job, I ALWAYS give myself double the time I think it is going to take.
if I finish sooner than I thought, I consider it a job well planned and executed.

(basically, if you plan for the worst, and the worst happens, then you aren't disappointed - LOL)

Good job on the fender!

Ever consider polishing those valve covers? It is simple, right? They are held on by only four bolts, and they are in plain sight.

Just LOOK at what involves to take one off......... (remember what Tricky stated!)

just keep telling yourself, you are having fun! Smile
enjoying the view from the saddle....... due mainly to the people and information found within this site
