I'd like to. However, the development time, cost and likely sales volume would not be a project likely to receive approval or funding. Thanks for the suggestion. I have also questioned the cost, weight and complexity that Polaris invested in this somewhat wobbly system.Is it possible to make a whole new hood that functions correctly, looks good, has less drag, and isn't crazy expensive?
I know this is a long shot...
The safe distance (vertical drop) measured from the Tinnerman clip fasteners that originally held the license bracket is about 3-3.5". Installing the LED will reduce that clearance. With a stock SL tire on your ride you might increase that distance by tilting the fender down a little when installing. (adjusting with provided shims) We can prepare for you a primed fender (ready to paint) for the same price as stock and possibly, for early adopters such as you, I might be able to have one custom painted. A painted one will push up the price.Hi Paul @irishdesign ..........Interested in this product....Although a few questions. First it looks like you are going to offer it in pearl red, is that correct?.....Secondly will it be compatible with Metricks slingwing.....Any chance to get measurements from the top of your fender to the bottom base of the rear view camera?........Any visual effect if the license plate is not mounted to your fender...mounting holes or ect......Thanx in advance.

Read the FAQs on paramountplastics.com for greater detail. The virgin ABS is capped with an acrylic based UV shield that is rated for marine use in Florida sun. Critical attachment points and stressed regions of the fender are double walled and structurally reinforced with sonic welded and adhesive bonded interior ribbing. If you don't back it into a tree and it should be good for the long haul. I'll be willing to bet that the steel brackets of any swing arm mounted hugger fender will crack before the Stealth Fender fails. Part of survival is being in the right place. Mounting to the swing arm beckons trouble.I think it looks great in black. I think will eventually crack since it's abs?
Thanks for the kind words. We're not able to hold the current (first adopter price to the forum) much longer. Our plug and drive wire harness and marketing expences are giving our accounting colleagues concern that we'll not recover our design and tooling investment.I will be getting one of these fenders hopefully before Christmas 2016!!! Like the rear fender and for the price, love it!
