:mad::mad: I saw a 3 inches break in left side just in front of the 2 bolts that maintain the fender...

Did i received a stone? Is the poor quality of our roads here responsable? ( riding on a hole?) Cheap plastic part from Suzuki???

Of course is there a product usable for sticking it back ? My beauty is injured!!!

Or if i have to change does anybody has the part number??

Thanks guys,

This is actually the first time I've heard of this except for when there's a hard smash through a pot hole, even then it's not that common. eBay is a great place to look as BlkM109R mentioned as well as Boulevard Suzuki parts:

New front fender in whatever colour your bike is for $129.63

is there a chance you could have parked it somewhere and someone have backed into your bike without you knowing?

Something must have hit it. No one has ever reported that it has broken for no reason before. If you look in my Bang for the Bucks mod thread, there are 5 places listed that you can buy that part online from.

Parts :
For seeing part explosions and for buying OE parts. they do not sell the parts at the same price , so I would look at them all.

1. Oneida Suzuki

2. Babbitts

3. Alpha Sports

4. Ron Ayers

5. Action Parts

For the record, I bought my fender, headlight cowl and air cleaner cover from Babbits. Good reliable service.

mine started to crack around the bolt holes and then eventually just broke with the bolt just hanging there.... Did manage to fix it my-self without getting a new fender... I think the same thing happened with a little extra unwanted presure from a spectator/Kid/Hardley owner.... I used Marine-TEX, filled in the whole entireley.. Shapped the hole with a Dremmel tool,and hole saw on my drill, back to stock form and then drilled were the bolt need to go after it hardened... Works and saved money.. Fender back on front were it belongs

Where you'll run in to the big $ is getting it painted. Not sure what color you have but paint for the Red is crazy!

I pick one up on ebay for $25 shipped to have around for when the spirit moves me to start modding it.

Watch ebay, they come up frequently and if you shop, you can get a good price.
