Not to throw stones but the rear fender on the F is one of the best aspects and you want to replace it with the DX?? Why wouldn't you buy the DX to start?

DX rear fender would make it different, give different seat options (maybe), and look cool. Having said that, I cant see me doing it in the near future. I love the look of my F the way it is but its nice to know what options exist for future mods if I get the urge. I would not consider any mod if it required altering the bike in such a way that it wasnt reversible. If anyone tries this fender exchange I'd love to see it.

I believe it requires a different rear sub frame / fender support as well but still a bolt-on to the frame which as stated is the same.

Actually my friend has an 09 DX and wants to put a F rear fender on that ride. You crazy kids should switch parts and kill two birds with one mod... :D

We need a good photoshop geek to make both options so we all can look at the outcome! :popcorn

I wouldnt be willing to swap, I would want to be able to reverse it back to stock. Would like to see the photoshopped image if someone can do it.

Was kidding but it's funny how you're both looking for each others "look"...

Black with two orange stripes, if ya want it ill find the subframe to go under it.
It's for a fellow rider bud of mine, a truck tapped his and I've been bugging him to fix it.

I just texted him and will also see him at work tomorrow and I'll bug him some more.

I'll let you know what's up after I talk with him. Thanks!

Bite your tongue! The F rocks. :D

Some cutting on that subframe and a real small "fender" might look pretty sick. You'd have to lower the bike quite a bit to complete the look. You first!!
