Default 2011 Iron Rear Fender replacement

I am importing a 2011 Iron 883 into Canada and in order to pass inspection, it will need a rear tailight and plate support on the rear fender. it has been suggested to me by an HD employee to replace the rear fender with a used sportster fender that has the rear taillight mounted on the fender with the center licence plate mount already attached. I have found a few on ebay and was wanting some advice on what years would work on a 2011. Colour doesn't matter, I will remove it promptly after inspection and licensing and replace with the OEM US side mount plate and fender. Thank You in advance for your advice.

04'-06' is a direct bolt on without issues. 07'-10' has the ECM hole in the fender...if you have the stock seat that shouldn't be a problem either as it will cover it.

Default fender switch out

Thanks for the advice. Do you know if all sportster rear fenders would be a direct fit no matter what model?

That is correct....except for the xr1200. The frame is the same (and that is what the fender mounts too) for the various models and engines.
