Anyone use a rear fender overlay?

I am putting an overlay and stretched bags on my 05 and was wondering if the bottom rear part of the overlay should be attached somehow to the rear fender or is it ok with no support? Thanks

You will want to support the bottom. At a minium to keep it from wiggling so bad. Whose overlay are you using?

I am trying a fiberglass Ebay special. So far, the fitment looks nice. A little tweaking here and there but looks good to me, even the bags look quality made for the price!

Mat and resin a piece of alum. across the bottom and make some brackets to mount it to one of the bolts by your mufflers.

I've used the bolts thru a curved plate frame to secure the overlay to the steel fender on a few of those jobs.

Thanks guys! That's what I had come up with, making a bracket that will use the back of the curved license plate bolt holes going to either the rear fender bolts on both sides or the single bolt in the middle of the fender that holds that bracket on. I got it pictured in my head, now I need to make it a reality. Thanks

That's exactly what I did on my last bike with an overlay. Fabbed a metal plate between 2 of the license plate bolts in the overlay and the single bolt on the stock fender brace. No cracks after 30K miles.
