    Hey guys,
    As mentioned in another thread, i've removed the pillion of my stock fat boy. This is part of the design and yet i've noticed that it leaves a really big gap between the rider seat and the fender so the electrics are pretty much exposed. I could understand if i'd modified anything but since this is factory design i was kind of suprised. Anyone know if this could be a problem? particularly in heavy rains

    Never good to have explosed electrics in the rain, they are water resistant and not water proof. Consider adding a fender bib when you have the solo seat on the bike that would cover that area.
