Oh that's good. I didn't mean to sound like a know it all, but the fender stays are almost always trouble. They don't fail instantly though. High speed vibration takes it's toll. If you do like I do, and keep an eye on them you'll probably avoid trouble.

I had to remove the rear fender on one of my bikes after I noticed cracking.
