Out on the tracks today I heard the dreaded "crack" from the rear fender.

Undo the rear plastics...



Drill a hole for a zip tie...



Zip tie the pieces together...



I thought this was a problem for those with the heavy licence plate holder only. Not so. If you're hitting the trails & corrugated roads then you might want to get in there & put some reinforcing in place.

It looks like there is plenty of room back there to run some type of steel support plate/linkage from the rear fender to the steel frame & take the load off the plastics.

On the + side though - the Terra & I spent a great day in the mud
