I decided to remove the fenders because they were junk, and I did not want to risk a wipe out. Yesterday morning right before i was going to head to school I made an adjustment on the factor chain tensioner and broke it. I went down to Tractor Supply and picked up a new tensioner. I ended up taking the bracket that came with the kit and cutting it down then welding the new tensioner on the modified bracket. It's not pretty, but I think it's going to be bulletproof.

This first pic is the new tensioner. The sencond pic is the finished product. Now I am off to school, and don't have to pay for the $250 parking pass. Thanks guys for all the help. Oh, and the search function on this forum is great.
