Default Re: Caution! Fenders are Death!

This has happened to a few members here.
My first build had the cheap chinese front fender that started to crack due to vibration, so off it came. Lots of parts that would otherwise be ok tend to vibrate loose or break when subjected to the vibrations these motors produce.
I've had various nuts and bolts back out, and even lost an aluminum frame to the motor vibe.
I use blue locktite on lots of fasteners now, and have even resorted to using locknuts in certain locations.

I hope you didn't get too banged up when you went down.
