Thumbs down Front Fender Stress Cracks

I have stress cracks around the two right hand side bolts on the front fender. It is pretty bad. One crack is nearly halfway across the fender. Anyone else had this issue? How much does an OEM painted front fender cost?

You can check here, you may want to take a deep breath first, nothing is cheap.
Good luck.

You have got to be kidding? That much for a piece of fiberglass?

Sorry, like you said, sticker shock.

Gee I apologize, I'm guilty of clicking and hitting send. Next time I'll be sure to look before I hit send.

Got 2 new fenders for my 800b last years from cheapcycleparts, was just over 200 for both. Wonder why they are so much more for the 900s.

wasn't sure if it's a 900 or 2000, here on the 900 page. I have a 900 front fender after replacing it with a custom fiberglass one. I think they're different sizes, too
