Procycle Low Mount Fender Kit

Anyone had an opportunity to install Procycle's new Low Mount Fender Kit? I'm wondering how well it fits, sturdiness of the plastic, ease of mounting, amount of wheel coverage width-wise (picture on web makes it seem a little thin, like water would spray up on the sides), etc. Does it have to be painted or can you just go with the black? Any feedback would be great to hear.

Thanks...Andy

I am learning the hard way with a failed petcock membrane.

I would check the O ring under the Float assembly or check for junk under the float needle!

Several pounds of wet clay continued to jam between rear wheel, rear shock and swingarm and I continued to dig it out with sagebrush branches. I worked the clutch hard to keep moving.... Made it home but the DR had lost all clutch play . Changed the oil to determine how much of the clutch had disintegrated. I found enough aluminum flakes in the oil to require 3 more oil changes to come clean. There was no adjustment left at the lever so I moved the clutch arm in one notch and all seems fine. Do I go in and take a look or let the dealer do it (since it's still under warranty)? Thanks in advance for any offered wisdom.

You need to talk to Al (Gore) about this global warming stuff. Try to catch him on his jet.

Procycle should have them. This might be a good time to have Cogent upgrade it as well. Or maybe a shiny Wilbers...
