My BIL bought maier rear fenders for his 85. The original fenders have the support wire and there are molded slots in the rear fenders for the ends of the support wire.

the Maier fenders do not have the molded slots and do not come with any support wire. Maier sends “brackets” and when I called they suggest that you modified the original support wire and then attached with the brackets to the rear fenders.
Is any one having success installing a support wire? I suspect that most people are leaving the support wire off altogether because what Maier suggest doesn’t seem very doable.

Anyone here using these Maier replacements and what if any rare you doing about a support wire?

Iv'e- BDT Motorsports have built quite a few ATC250R's and TRX250R's with aftermarket plastics, including Maier, some are full blown race Trikes/Quads for MX, FT, TT , WOODS customers...never installed the wire or brackets. I don't like the idea of drilling holes into new plastics, and you don't really need the wire or extra support it may provide IMO.

Hello, I installed mine in the same way the stock goes in; however, once you install the supplied clips and you install the wire through the holes in the clips, i bent the wire in a 90° right at the tip, this prevents the wire from coming out of the clips...one thing though, mock the wire in the desired position and mark where you'll be bending, remove both the clips and the wire and now on your bench with hopefully a vise, bend the wire at the marked position, then install the wire through the holes on the clips and bolt them onto the fender... the wire is a bitch to bend, but any human being can do this, so again, I do sugest you use a vise so the wire won't move as your hammering it into submission...
