I heard some time back about a rust problem on fenders and using silicone to repair. Can someone fill me in?
Your Vulcan from 19 years ago will be there long after the Indian has rusted away. And your Vmax right next to it. Facts.I had rust showing on my 2015 RM after about 6 months. Both front and rear fenders. These were replaced under warranty. Before they installed the fenders I had them brush coat all the inside seams with automotive undercoating. The fenders are pretty thin metal and there are numerous places that are spot welded together. Even the new fenders I got appeared to have nothing there to seal these overlaps. Just going in the rain throws the water into the inside of the fenders and then the water sits there till it eventually dries up. It is not a matter of if they will corrode but when. It's hard to believe that Polaris could not spare a couple bucks in undercoating to seal these fenders up on these $30K machines. Even the lighted icon on the front fender will eventually give you the "brown Indian". The bracket inside the lighted assy has little protection to it. I took this apart, bead blasted the metal, painted and reinstalled and then added a bit of RTV to the wire grommet to seal this to keep water out from intruding into that assy. I have not had a problem since and now have 40K on my bike. Dean
How do you take the light off?
