Yup, works out great with the 17" wheels. I made it out of the old front fender.

I would think your tire could hit that even with 17. I know it would get wiped out with the stock 18 off road

But maybe better than on the motor - I would think the heat would be bad for batteries.

I doubt my 17" would ever touch the fender, not with the riding I do.

It can't hit, the fender is bolted to the swingarm so it moves with the tire. I have about 800 miles on this with no issues. I can easily remove it if I want to put the 18" wheels back on.

I don't ride single track on this pig. Just asphalt, gavel and forest service roads.

It's great having big sticky tires and good brakes.

I think they mean the real fender.

I used to hit the fender behind your battery mount and kiss the muffler on the way by too. It was the fast two track where I'd use up the suspension, not single track.

Yep that battery would be gone

The battery isn't set in to the stock fender, when the shock bottoms it will make contacted with that hugger and or tire

OK you guys had me worried. So I disconnected the shock linkage and jacked the rear wheel all the way up. The only thing my homemade hugger hits is the rear turn signal mounts.

The fender just pushes down against the tire a bit. I tried to get a picture but there isn't enough room to get the camera in there. If the battery was anything but a 2 cell it would hit. It just barely clears.

Thanks for freaking me out

Good thinking
Noticed that on one of your previous posts Sean-O
Guess that removes concerns about the OEM and BD regulators holding up to the increase in capacity.
How's it go with heat or do you rely on the mount/dash plate acting as a heat sink?

JM It only gets hot when I don't have the pwr turned on and yes the dash acts as a heat sink

when I have my headlight running its enough it seems to keep the reg cool ..I have only ever noticed it getting warm when im tinkering with no air flow
