Default OEM fender with 21" Can it be done?

Does anybody know why you can't use your stock fender with a 21" wheel? I would like to keep my stock fender plus it will save me some cash! I have the two tone custom paint see signature for exact color.

so you have a 18" now and you want a 21" that would be 1 1/2"
so with a tape measure you could tell. You need to know how wide the 21" will be
call Coastal Victory they could tell you if fender will work and you can get wheel price

Thanks visionjohnny, I just talked to Josha @ CV, he said it can't be done.

"They" say it cant be done .... they always say that. Have you heard of 'fabrication'? not trying to be an ass or anything but all you have to do is lift it from the mounts a little bit.

First you have to get the wheel on and then fit the fender and see if the circumference of the fender is even close to the circumference of the wheel/tire combo?

Then just lift the fender off the wheel/tire by one or two different ways:

1) Pop out the mounting rivets and cut the mounting hole legs and add material to extend them all upwards. simple welding of some metal pieces in between. paint it and pop rivet it back together. (easy way)

2) Machine a billet aluminum extension piece that will give you the lift you need. (hard way)

ptc I'm sure it can fabricated, but not by me. I have neither of the tools to do this job properly or knowledge in painting, sheetmetal and welding to make this process happen. I really don't want to mess nothing up.

Yea if youre looking for 'bolt-on' upgrades like that .... no it wont work. The VIC aftermarket hasnt yet caught up with all the things that can be done yet but they are closing in on alot of things.

There are other fenders out there, but not alot of choices, youre just gonna have to go with whatever is available and look like all the rest of the 21", 23", 26" upgrades going on out there all over the place now.

"Custom" (as I define it) means it is different from the rest, a custom bike doesnt just look like a clone of something else somebody else has already done...

Good luck to you on your project! if ya need a 21" tire I have one avail.
