Missing Rear Reflector

Post by dstaff » Thu May 03, 2018 5:50 am



Hi.
Would anyone have a suggestion on a replacement for the rear reflector between the saddlebag lights?
Mine fell off yesterday, leaving behind the white plastic backing.

I've found a replacement on ebay (Part number 33742-MG9-771) but don't like the idea of paying $30US for a flat piece of plastic.
I'm wondering if others have had to replace their reflectors, and if so what did you use?

Thanks
Dean

I have a pair of saddlebags from a parts bike. It's an 86 ... would you be interested in one off of one of those?
20 bucks plus shipping if they come off nicely!

Thank you for the offer, but unfortunately it’s not the reflector on the saddlebags I was looking for, just the one on the rear fender that goes between the bags.

But if I ever need bags I know who to ask. 😄.

I have that one also, I think it has Aspencade on it.

Darn! That’s too bad. I have a Limited. I wouldn’t want to put the wrong badging on.

I actually think the piece that fell off my bike didn’t have anything on it.

Actually after looking at pictures of the Aspencade I think the reflector with "Aspencade" on it is the one on the Tail bag.
I'm looking for the one on the fender under the licence plate, which has nothing on it.
