Marks

Does anyone know if using the suction cup pads create permanent marks on the fender. My buddy has one on his HD but his fenders are metal and he has never had a mark. BTW he has gloss paint and so do I.

I would say if you don't wax it and you leave them on for months on end then you'd probably see rings but if it is just for a ride and you remove it I'd say you'll be fine. Doesn't really matter whether or not the fender is metal, what matters is how the paint is and how you take care of it.

Thanks Snuff, much appreciated. Sounds like a logical explanation.

They also specifically say that it will not adhere very well to just "paint", i.e. matte paint... so just be aware that if it doesn't stick as well, that would be the reason.

I would also take great pains to ensure both the suction cup and the fender are spotless. A small spec of anything under that cup will be ground into your finish.
Yea, this is wise advice, was thinking about this all day long scratching the 800 paint job I just got on this one fender... lol ... Reminds me, I'll add this to the FAQ as well, thanks Jay Cee!

I have a suction cup pillion pad for my Johnny Pag Spyder. The suction cups do not scratch the paint if everything is clean but getting it off is a bastard of a job. I find marks from my fingernails on the paintwork after I get it off and I am super careful.

I suggest that in addition to the suction cups being totally clean that you apply 3 or 4 coats of wax on your rear mud guard (fender) before you put it on, that way the wax keeps the paint from getting any marks.

Just got the paint job done, think I need to let the clear coat's rest for a month before applying wax (least that's what I remember Painter telling me, but I am really tired atm... so, don't know)... I'll call and ask tomorrow about it.

Great find RSS! For sure let me know what you think of it!
Sure thing...
