heat white marks with heatgun or propane torch[be careful not to melt plastic with torch].you have to heat both sides do bottom first. now i have a question.does anyone know a way i could remove stress mark[actually stretch mark]from my old lady's fat butt?i tried propane torch but she jumped around to much.i ended up burning off here eyebrows.

once you get the white marks off try using a fender brace. It sounds like the light is too much weight for the fender.

i would say white marks were caused by loopouts.he's just a too embarrassed to admit it.

Loop out, Hell I'm not embarrased, I think that what got the whole thing started. Not a complete loopout. I saved it but did scrappe the frnder and bend my tag and bruised my pride.

Any info on WHERE to get a good fender brace?

mattnohiohills,

I had the same problem with a UFO rear fender/taillight on my (past) WR. I bolted through the 2 layers of plastic on each side near the flex point. This holds the inner and outer layers tight together, stiffening the rear and reducing the flex. This seemed to be the simplest fix. I got the tip from another WR rider who had done it before.

Here's a link for the rear fender brace I bought.

http://www.bbaluminium.com/yamahaaccess.htm

The prices are in AUSSIE dollars.

I have custom turn signal mounts installed on mine and with the current exchange rate it's only $68 US including shipping.

Dan Lorenze's Dad has one on his bike and that what convince me I needed one. You can pick up the rear of the bike with this brace installed.

There maybe somebody in the States making a similar brace I couldn't find anyone.
