Protect the paint

Is there anything you can put on the upper rear fender so the bag I strap to the backrest won't rub the paint off between the plate & backrest? Thanks

Solving the problem is more important than patching the cause. Plus one more on the luggage rack.

I only need it for 4 days. Wonder if masking tape or duct tape would be a temporary fix.

If you decide to use this method, I would use painter's masking tape (the blue stuff). Definitely NOT duct tape. If heat gets to it the glue will bond to the paint then you havfe a hell of a mess. BTDT with a car window.
