Revamp Your Ride: A Guide to Motorcycle Fender Upgrades

Welcome to the world of motorcycle customization, where every tweak and upgrade translates into a unique riding experience. Among the plethora of modifications available, one often overlooked yet incredibly impactful upgrade are your set of fenders, front and rear. While it might seem like a minor detail, upgrading your motorcycle fenders can have a significant impact on both the aesthetics and performance portions of your ride. 

In this reading, we will go into details about fender upgrades, their benefits, and why investing in this seemingly small modification can make a big difference in your ride. Whether you’re aiming for enhanced style, improved functionality, or both, understanding the potential of a fender upgrade is essential for any rider and their motorcycle.

Is It Time for a Fender Facelift?

Sure, your current fender might do the basic job of protecting your bike from some of the dirt and grime, but is it really offering the best protection and style? Here are some tell-tale signs it's time to upgrade to a premium set of fenders. 

Wear and tear: If your current fenders are showing signs of rust, dents, or large scratches, it's time to consider an upgrade. Beyond detracting from your motorcycle's appearance, these issues can compromise the integrity and performance of your fenders. 

Enhanced protection: Are you and your ride bombarded by road spray, mud, or debris? Upgrading to a higher-quality fender can offer superior protection.

 Performance upgrades: If you've tuned your motorcycle for peak performance, adding matching high-end fenders can sharpen aerodynamics and reduce drag.

Aesthetic mismatch: Perhaps your tastes have evolved since acquiring your motorcycle, or the current fenders no longer align with your upgraded components or envisioned paint scheme. Upgrading to a new set of fenders can breathe new life into your ride's appearance, creating a cohesive look that complements your motorcycle's style and modifications. Whether you opt for a unique color or commission a custom paint job, upgrading your fenders allows you to express your individuality and make your motorcycle truly your own.

Finding High-Quality Fenders

What exactly do we mean by "high-quality"? Here are some key features that set our fenders apart from the rest. 

Laser cut precision: We harness the power of advanced 5-axis laser technology to cut our fenders with unparalleled accuracy, ensuring they fit perfectly onto your motorcycle. This precision guarantees fitment for direct bolt-on installation, making the upgrade process smooth and straightforward.

14-gauge stamped steel: Durability is paramount, especially for those who love challenging their bike on various terrains. Klock Werks fenders are stamped from 14-gauge steel using precision, deep-draw stamping technology. This ensures a consistently smooth and flawless finish that requires minimal bodywork. What's more, this steel is rigid enough to act as a fork brace, providing additional stability and durability. 

Made in the USA: There's a certain pride in riding with American-made parts. Klock Werks fenders come from a tradition of quality and local craftsmanship, ensuring you're outfitting your bike with the best.

E-coated and ready for paint: Each fender is treated with an electrostatic coating (e-coat), offering exceptional rust and corrosion resistance. Once you've found the right fit for your ride, you can take the fender straight to your painter with the confidence that it's primed to paint and withstand the elements.

Selecting & Installing Your New Fender

We know riders have distinct tastes and needs, which is why many of our fenders come in various styles — from tire hugging designs that flaunt the bike's wheel to more full-coverage options. At Klock Werks, it’s easy to find the perfect fender to match both the look and functionality you desire for your motorcycle.

If your preferred style comes in a Fender Fit Kit, you're all set for a straightforward, no-fuss installation. The Klock Werks front fender Fit Kits include the fender itself, mounting blocks, and all the necessary hardware. Our rear fender fit kits, whether you prefer a touring or cruising style, come complete with aluminum fender spacers, designed to provide robust support for your new rear fender. Want a fender that's not part of a Fit Kit? No worries, grab a separate set of mounting blocks to ensure a perfect fit and hassle-free upgrade. Can we reference the Steadfast blocks here?
