Anyone break the stock rear fender brackets yet? They seem to be casted out of aluminum and not very strong.

after my first crash i broke both fender brackets. I purchased new oem ones and and just crashed again a few weeks ago and rolled the quad, the brackets stayed fine but my shoulder is another story.

Here is the solution I came up with... so far they seem very strong they even allow you to hang your butt way over the fender if necessary for that difficult, off-camber stuff. I tested them the other day, by standing on top of the fenders with my feet directly over the bracket ends (I'm 6' 195lbs). I did not jump up and down (as my friend suggested), but I work the rear shock a little bit and they did not been at all (he was surprised as well).

Looks good, did you make the brackets or buy them?
