Fender grommets

I would like to replace the fender grommets on my 2000 CFLs rear fender. Does anyone know where to find the right grommets for replacement? Thanks all.


After a closer look, are they just rubber washers? I see steel washers on the inside.

Are they like tank grommets? Rubber with a steel sleeve?

Appreciate the response. Going to take a closer look with my mechanic when I get a chance. Long story short, for reasons that still need to be answered, my tire keeps coming in contact with the rear fender which has caused what looks like cracks in the paint near one bung and the fender is loose at the lower bung (where I hoped a new grommet or washers would help). Not sure right now if this fender can be saved or I will have to start looking

I just repaired a similar problem. One of my fender bolts worked loose. It was ok going forward but when you backed up the bolt would screw out and freeze the rear tire.

It's not a big job. If you have the tools you can probably handle it. A lift does come in handy on this kind of job.

What mechanic/shop are you using?

I do believe I want to take a shot at this. I took a quick look at lift options and there are a bunch. Can you recommend a cheap stand that will do the job? If I can get this on a lift, I will deflate the tire so I can get to the screws I need to and have a look. Worst case scenario, I can get the fender stable enough to get over to Skull Motoshop. Big thanks man

Any advantages of the hydrolic vs scissor jacks? Similarly priced at the low/mid range. Just want to be able to get wheels off and do simple maintenance for now...

Picked up a Pittsburg 1500 lb hydrolic lift reasonably priced. Pretty stoked on this lift right now. Got the bike up, wheel off, and fender snugged up. Couldn't find the hard rubber washers (not grommets) in the right size so I've got 2 rubber washers in place for now and fender feels solid. Lowe's and Home Depot can be a crap shoot when looking for nuts, bolts, washers, so I'm wondering if you guys have a more reliable option. Harbor Freight had the lift and seems like a good one for those 8:30 pm runs

Used a car jack to support the rear wheel for removal and wasn't expecting two small washers/spacers to fall. No problem getting spacers properly placed as I had pictures but these small washers came from inside?

I suspect the go with the axle bolt (not the axle) as the diameter is too small. If anyone knows, the Help is GREATLY appreciated. The job's been totally doable except for the little mishap.

I would also like to take the rubber washers off the fender and replaced with nylon or steel then some blue loktite, where you find this stuff?.

Fender is secured, went with steel washers. Spacers appear to have quietly fallen when I removed the brake caliper. After getting the wheel setup, brake pads were dragging on one side, that's when light bulb when on.

I also have an added problem I could use help with. About a 1/2 mile into a test ride, when I pulled over to check the rear brakes/rotor, I suddently lost use of the throttle. A stripped/locktited housing (thanks earlier owner) gave way. I am now ordering a new PM housing and need, either to learn to stop being an idiot, or to find a place that can supply things like a THROTTLE CABLE SPLIT BARREL that's compatible.
