They have them for sale in the re catalogue. Has anybody done this yet? They look great. It looks to me as though the fender stays are different.

The 350 fenders do look great on a 500. To change to 350 fenders on a 500 you will need new shorter fender stays. To change out the rear you should get new mudguard carriers although I am told that it is no big deal to drill a couple of holes in the 350 rear fenders to make them fit.

Sounds encouraging coming from an administrator. I emailed the store ,as they ask you to when ordering fenders of a specific color (black) , and asked if the 350 stays are in stock also. so we'll see.

They called and told me that did not have the fender, This was after I  called the order in as they request at the website, To "make sure its available" Oh well 4 weeks
' gives me some time to mount the Lucas plateholder and rear signals. came up with this "strut end mount" the other day. The bracket goes in the tube like a bar end mirror.  see pics

you should get new mudguard carriers

I ordered a set of the blemished 350 fenders from the clearance section. What are mudguard carriers?

Thanks,

They are the black tubular things that the fender (mudguard in the UK) is bolted to.

Does anyone have any photos of the 350 rear fender with the 500 mudguard carriers? I like the deep look of the front fender, but am becoming concerned about the look of the rear.

Thanks,
