Marauder rear fender on a Boulevard c50

I've got a 2017 C50 . I was wondering if anybody has tried mounting the up swept bob type rear fender from say a 98 Marauder.

The wiring will not work. The Marauder/M50 fender is wired for incandescent lights. Your C50 has LED for the stop light. Not sure about the side markers. It should fit, but you're going to have to deal with rewiring some lights to make it work.

That's why I love this forum.....I would have checked the bolt holes for proper alignment and went to town only to be frustrated later when hooking up the wires and wondering why my lights didn't work. Guys sharing the knowledge.

My 99 cents:
a) Wiring harness: you would need to splice wiring harness: cut-off your current rear fender harness connector making sure to leave at least 3-5 inches for splicing, extend wires, splice into new lights, and you are done.

2)Just pop compatible led bulbs. Break light operation shouldn't be affected. Turn signals need an LED specific really, and if your bike OEM bulbs are incandescent, you shouldn't worry. Even then, if you switch all turn signal bulbs to LEDs, you just need to swap-out a $14 relay (


). I swapped turn signals and break lights on my 2008 C50 to switchback LEDs, swapped relay, works like a charm.
