This came with the bike when I bought it, but it wasn't installed.

Image

It's made of 2 pieces which are bolted together. Just weighing it in my hands vs. the stock fender, I felt no difference.

The rear looks cool with all the vents, but it's also strong and doesn't flex much. The red piece is what you line up on top for a custom fit. It bolts right on, no problem.

Image

The bolts lend a certain bling factor.

Image

It looked okay just mounted right on there. Better than stock, IMO.

Image

I used some washers to shim the front up a bit. Not sure if you can tell, but it looks to me like it was made for the bike, now.

Image

At highway speeds, it's a lot stiffer and doesn't flop around like the stock fender. Splash and mud protection is just as good, the rear portion vents more than stock while still protecting from rocks, etc.

For about $30, it's a nice piece of bling that functions and looks more modern than stock. I give it an A+. :2_thumbsup:

Comes in all the usual colors, too. http://www.polisport.com/en/off-road/pr ... rs/?id=279

Are the bolt just for looks, or is it some kind of two piece fender?

Yeah, it's 2 pieces. It didn't feel any heavier than the stock fender, though.

The front is glossy, the rear piece is a flatter finish, and it's stiffer than it looks. It's easier to see on a colored fender. https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=c ... r&tbm=shop

That top view of the front portion looks just like the one piece Polisport that I put on my bike. Is yours like the next "model" up?

I guess so. Looks like the "free flow" idea is the big deal with this one.

If I was doing a motard, I'd look at the SM Line fender. It's got an air scoop! Bound to make you go faster! :bumps:

Any sense if the Polisport fender is stiffer-IE more likely to accommodate a fender toolbag over time?

I would think so. It's stiffer than stock.
