So I just recently wrecked my custom and had heard that the classic rear fender is a direct bolt on to the frame to the custom and figured I'd give it a try. Now does this mean all I have to do is buy the rear fender or do I have to purchase the classic subframe as well? This is something I've wanted to do for a while in order to get rid of the gap between the fender and rear tire. Has anyone got any experience in this?

Have you considered going aftermarket? I have a britt motorsports / Kustom werks rear fender with license plate cutout. Also have the plate bracket. Both brand new , both forsale!

Well the reason I was asking is because I crashed my bike and got a nice check from the Insurance company so if I could get it directly from kawi I'd just do that. I've seen it done but the subframes on the two bikes are different just wondering if I'd have to change mine. Sorry chap

I've completed the swap on my 08 Custom and the Classic fender is a direct bolt up to the Custom frame. The other item you will need is the wiring harness that runs from under the seat to the rear lights from the Classic as well.

Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.

Brake lights are the same and the turn signals are also the same minus the length of the black spacer.....The Custom ones are shorter and those are the ones I used.

The turn signals on a classic also have a chrome cover on them that the custom does not have....
