A couple of you have asked how I drilled into the fender, whether I removed/loosened it, etc. I did not remove or loosen the fender. I used strong adhesive glue to attach it and left that overnight, with a couple pieces of tape to prevent gravity from taking over while the glue was drying.

Then I drilled two holes, and you can see approximate locations in these photos. The drill bit is touching the screw in the first photo. Perhaps my drill is shorter/lower-profile than other list members' drills? My drill was at a slight angle, and I pushed the drill bit in further than normal. But the drilling itself is easy through plastic, and I can feel the tips of the screws inside the fender so I know they are installed all the way.

(You can also see a bit of adhesive that leaked out the bottom and that I will peel away)

Thanks!  I canít see the lil push rivets holding the extender in place at all.  If a liberal amount of epoxy didn't hold it how would these rubber rivets keep it secure?  Drilling and using the screws seems to be the only way.

I used 3M "Extremely Strong" mounting tape - the kind with red plastic peel-off strip -  with no screws or rivets when I added a Powerbronze Fender Extender to my Z900RS, and it seems to be holding perfectly so far.  To be fair, it has only been a few days and a couple of hundred miles and no bad weather just yet.  But I did the same with my Pyramid Plastics fender extender on my Versys 2 years and 8,000 miles ago, and it is still holding strong.  I would also feel quite confident in using 3M Plastic and Emblem adhesive for this task, and would have done so if I'd had a tube of it handy, because it would have been slightly easier than cutting the tape to fit.  I once used it for attaching vinyl trim to a car and it stuck like a barnacle.  It held for years and is probably still holding today, if that car is still on the road. 

No, I don't work for 3M or get anything for mentioning this, I just have tried and been very happy with these two products.  YMMV.

How many miles on that fender extender so far?

Still only 200 miles on the extender on the RS.  I can't ride because It's sitting in the garage with the ECU lost in the mail on its way to be flashed.  USPS still says it's on its way but it has been 5 days on a 2-day promise.  😞
