An other option is to make a plateholder yourself from an aluminium plate. The fender is quite thin and flimsy so it's better if the fastening points extend more to the front of the bike. That way the fender dont flap up and down as much. Even better would be to get an extention to where the aluminium backframe and fender is atatched together.

I have decided to make one out thick rubber-plastic.

Kind of like an old car tire carcass.

 

I found the material on line, but cannot figure out what it is called or where to get it.....yet.

I made one out of a tub for mixing sheetrock paste I picked up at Lowes for 6 bucks.

 

I just cut a big  piece out of the tub and then pulled the tail light cover.and cut a tab with a couple of notches in it to go around the two screw bosses to lock it in place.  The fit should be TIGHT if not oversized for the next step.

 

It's a weird shape in the pocket so I heated up my new part in the area that would sit in the pocket with a small torch ( till the plastic is shiny and floppy ). Quickly clamp it all together ( or screw it back on ) with the piece you made sandwiched between the lower cover and the tail light and wait for it to cool.  Adjust the angle of the plate holder by hand as it cools to get a angle you are happy with.  Use a rag soaked in cold water to shorten the process.

 

I left the " plate " part oversized and then trimmed it up once I mounted the plate to make sure it was straight.

 

First pic is the rough setup with the tub ( and it's missing piece ) on the floor to the left.

 

Second pic is mounted and done.

 

The material the tub is made out of is perfect for this,  just enough give to move ( hell you can fold it completely under the fender ) but it doesn't flop around while riding.

Yeah kinda like that

I just got my Ryco plate holder yesterday, It's way nicer than I anticipated. I'm just now getting around to plating my 2016 WR (busy summer) and this was a must have. After screwing around trying to fabricate something, I decided to bite the bullet and order this. It comes with all the correct hardware, nylocks, etc. Worth every penny of the $60!

Yes they do LOOK good.  Unfortunately, the angle is wrong.  One time bottoming and the plate will catch the rear tire and tear it off.  Both my buddy and I bought one and both of us had the same issue.  The new WRs fenders are "floppier" than previous models.

I haven't lost mine yet on my 16'. But I bolted it through with stainless button head bolts.

My Delrin back plate broke and I lost my plate. Drill holes in your plate and bolt it to the aluminum bracket.

The 16 fender is definetly not designed to hold something more than its own weight. Flopps up and down like crazy when your driving behind in whooppie sections.

That's why I have decided against the Ryco bracket for off road, and am making one out of renforced rubber.

I made mine out of a piece of aluminum, might have been about $5 or so. It's held up great with mostly off road use, and with the integrated blinkers in the tail light ($15 on ebay), is definitely minimalist.
