Got mine in today! Maund / canyon racer is on it with the shipping. Only took 3 days USPS to get to me. Fortunate for me i live in SoCal.
Could not wait to put it on. Took the original fender off, got the FEK mounted, but still have to do the wiring and mount the signal lights to the shocks.
I knew from what everyone said that it is quality and it is . To my surprise it was supper thick, sturdy, cast aluminum...and if I didn't make it clear, that is a good thing. Left all A++ on ebay.
Tomorrow morning I may just chop the wire harness of my original tail peace, use a little solder and shrink tubing to do the job right.
FYI: If it helps anyone, i am sure everyone is much quicker, savvy, and smarter when it comes to these things than me, but if it saves a little time/guess work ...
I used the kits allen bolts ( longer than original) on the actual FEK, with red loctite, and with the bigger of the nuts supplied. the new mud guard sandwiches the FEK kit to the frame using the previously mentioned bolts and nuts. I used the orignal star bolts, with loctite, near the wire harness, mid seat/frame, to hold the other side of the mud guard with the new,smaller of the kit's, nuts to fasten the mud guard. use the smallest bolts to fasten the license plate to FEK ( FEK license holes are threaded, no nut is needed)
... for what it is worth, hope it helps someone.
