Damn Plastic fenders

My only gripe of the Fury.

Just a friendly note to fellow Fury riders. Don't overtighten the bolts that fit over any plastic especially the rear fender just use blue loctite. If you over tighten it doesn't allow the plastic to flex and it will crack if over stressed. Mine did when I hit a big bump in the road.

Honda covered it under warranty.

Just if you have taken off the seat or any of the bolts on the bike, locktite em back on. I understand the factory bolts are installed with a torque wrench to prevent overtightening.

Well I took the radiator fan off to remove some unnecessary parts when I installed forward controls and tightened the bolts on the fan a week later 2 had vibrated off.

Locktite ftw.

It's been a while since I removed mine, but I couldv'e sworn the fender bolts have a shoulder on them that prevent just this sort of thing.
