Man that's a huge bummer. I guessing you didn't notice until it was too late. Have you started shopping around for a new tail tidy?

Yep I knew nothing until I had a indercator warning light come on the dash! I fixed the problem by making the mounting points in closer to the stop light

Isn't your melted indicator pointing the wrong way?

H*ck. It happened to me too. I installed the Evotech fender eliminator and I believe it was okay throughout the run in period. But once I started giving it the beans, I quickly noticed this. The black exhaust facing bit is melted a bit and the screw housing on the clear bit bent so that it no longer works.

I'll be going back to the factory fender this weekend. Bummer.
