$12.00? got to be good.
If you search the forum you will find at least 1 instance where this kind of fender has gotten broken on its own accord during a ride,... I know there are several threads on specific rear fenders, but this one from Aliexpress looks great, seems to be easily fit using two existing bolts already on the bike, and doesn't look bad at all. https://m.aliexpress.com/item/4000805763091.html
And at less than cdn$20,it's a no-brainer.
AliExpress is like Amazon - There are a lot of sellers there, and the product quality varies. But there is a lot of really good quality stuff there too, at a lot lower prices than the exact same products on Amazon.I don't buy from anyone who advertises on YouTube. AliExpress is one of them. Do you think you're getting a quality product at $12?
I should qualify that all the ads I’ve gotten are generally for specific products, and I either find the product reviews are mediocre to poor or, if it’s a decent product, it can be had for a lot less elsewhere. It’s a shame because some YT creators sponsor products on their channels, but the taint of YT ads is why I don’t take any of them seriously.AliExpress is like Amazon - There are a lot of sellers there, and the product quality varies.

Additionally, almost every single major motorcycle brand, parts outlet, insurance provider, tire manufacturer, etc. - the list goes on and on - advertises on YouTube. That is like saying "I won't buy anything advertised on TV" in the 80's...
