today after the roads dry a little i might take her for a little trail ride and get a inline fuel filter and take the one inside the tank out add a small washer to the petcock to change its orientation and Teflon it back in trim my rear fender a little more also for extra chain clearance i hear it slap a little when i pull the clutch in and coast
That isn't true at all. 150 miles? Ha! I've put over 50,000 miles on bicycles with fenders. Any bike with fenders can pose a danger if they are not secured. Motor or not, even just pedaling. Cheap fenders, expensive fenders, don't matter. If they aren't secured properly they can come loose.
