Hello
Can anyone tell me if it’s common for the front mudguard to split on the mounting points and what could’ve caused it?

Im looking at one to buy and the current owner reckons that at some point in its life it may have had an extender fitted which caused the split?! I guess you can’t buy a new guard from Honda now?
Thanks
Neil

A new fender is listed at about £169, there's probably going to be VAT on top of that.
I've run fender extenders on all my bikes and never had one split.
I'd say either its had a "bump" or the bolts have been over tightened.

If they didn't use factory bolts then it's very easy to overtighten and split things.

Had to change mine a few years back for the very same reason, got one from a breakers but the colour wasnt an exact match but good enough for the job it does.
