I have one broken off. My wife flipped the bike over backward coming off the top of a dune, and it landed on the fender, bent the fender brace and broke the clip off that side. I have tried epoxy but that didn't work. I have an idea to use a shoulder bolt, a couple of washers, and a rubber grommet to fix it, but it really doesnt rattle around too much yet so I haven't done it. It sure isnt worth paying the 160 or so for new plastic, especially if you have ever considered either cutting the front fenders down (less weight to rattle it around) or buying aftermarket stuff, like carbon fiber that I have heard rumors about.

I've broken a side off on mine. I tried to JB weld it back on..lasted for a while, but was out riding and noticed the plastic shifted a bit, looked and it was gone..so who knows.

So your dealer replaced your whole front fender?

Guy's, because it's polyethelene you'll have trouble finding any glue to fix it.I had mine plastic welded.

hey Geoff this may sound a little dumb but what is plastic welding and how is this done because both of my clips broke off and my bike has never been flipped or rolled.

For your info. Harbor Freight had those plastic welding kits for sale, not sure how they work. I am planning on geting one next time I am in their store.

Well im now without BOTh of my plastic clips. Had a little incident today...bike is ok..both the front and rear plastick bent down a bit, and that clip broke off. So now both my clips are busted..FFS! I highly doubt the dealer would fix this..i mean i did flip it on its side, but still..yould think they wouldnt be so brittle.

Ya same here both mine have broke off. Also my back plastic is cracking by the bolt that holds it to the frame. I think polaris should replace them.
