Factory warranty, as a rule, does not cover any failures that can be attributed to non-approved modifications or non-approved parts/accessories.
Been quite some time since I've heard of a cracked fender! Most of those, IMO where/are caused by excessive torquing of the mounting screws when installing the extension.
Now, having said all that. This is a trike, maybe has a rake kit (mine does). That should be a non-issue. My extension has been on since the bike was new in 2006, triked in 2010.
I would be discussing this issue w/the owner of the installing dealership. While telling the OP the cracked fender is not covered by warranty due to the fender extension is true. However, IMO, the dealer has some responsibility here, since they installed the extension. If they are claiming it was impacted, where is the damage showing this? With the position of a front fender extension, maybe the person making this statement should enlightened the OP what could possibly "impact" the extension that would cause the fender to crack???????
