Does everyone have a the plastic rear fender or is it only the guys with grey bikes with black rims - think the color is called matte black but unsure?

My Fury is blue and my buddy's is black, and both have plastic fenders. I believe they are plastic on all of the Fury's:(

All the plastic pieces on this bike keeps the weight down, that’s why it handles so well.

I think even my engine is plastic;) I was surprised to see that even the front fender was plastic, but all bikes these days are made of plastic. Even newer Harley Davidson bikes have quite a bit on them. You can't get away from it. Who cares? The bike is still an awesome machine.

Honda did things right...

Honda has learned a lot from building race bikes. They incorporated some of that race technology in the Fury.... including the use of weight saving "plastics" rather than traditional "tins". I wonder what would happen if Harley tried to build a MotoGP bike? :confused: HAHAHAHAHA

I guess the question is, will a plastic fender be able to hold a custom sissy bar thats bolted to it?

I would say yes, as long as the bolts route into the metal horizontal brackets underneath the fender. The stock sissy bar does that.

This morning I accidentally dropped a weighty sharp edged object on to my rear fender. After letting loose the requisite set of words describing what I thought of my actions, I was pleased to see that the plastic fender only sustained a little nick. If this were a painted steel fender, I'm sure that the nick would have been a dent along with some chipped off paint exposing bare metal. I'm starting to like these plastic fenders :)

Harley came close with the orange on one side, black on the other VR1000
