Diablo Short Rear Fender

For anyone who has this fender:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/HONDA-REBEL...8AAOSwQvhZhVKM

A buddy helped me take off the stock rear fender and put on the supports for the Diablo short fender. The wiring is a bit more difficult, so that's the next hurdle. I'm just wondering, for anyone who has this fender installed, is the voltage regulator just exposed to the elements? Am I missing a piece? I added a picture to show what i'm talking about.



There's another plastic piece that came off with the rear fender that kind of blocks it, but it doesn't secure to anything with the Diablo support bars.

Any guidance is much appreciated.

I put my top piece back on & secured it with black cable ties.
Not had a problem with the wet road spray getting in.
You can always glue some plastic to cover those two large openings at each side.

Hey Dan,
I did mine with that exact Fender but i dont remember having an opening there. I think you took off more than needed. The wiring was easy, I think i have a diagram that helped me somewhere.
Good Luck

Hey man - 2 things, can you take a picture of under your fender so I can see what it looks like? Also - if you have that diagram it would be super helpful!

^^^ Second that please. I'm going to bobber my rebel so any info related would be appreciated. Also do the rear wheels and swing-arm need to be taken off in order to remove the stock rear fender?

You do not need to remove the wheels or swing arm, take the seat off and unplug the light connectors, the mud deflectors, I had to remove the heat sink thing too.
Although I fitted the H2C short Fender, the procedure is more or less the same.

So, piece 4 in that image connects to the stock rear fender and helps keep the voltage regulator from being exposed. That piece doesn't connect once the stock fender is removed. There's nothing to secure it to. I guess I'll have to do like the first guy said and zip tie it or something.

Wiring is still my nightmare...

You can slot the top piece over the bottom one then zip tie. I used the small holes at the side to thread the ties through.
Mine is very secure

Guys does removing the stock rear fender also remove the mounting points for the peg stock or the muffler mount? Number 7 in the diagram.
