It was a little bit tedious getting the holes drilled in exactly the right places and had to taper the front spacers a little shorter than the rear for the right angle but it worked out fine and is solid and secure...................Lars.

We concluded the following:
The forks of (at least my stock 2008) forks are too wide and too big for this fender to fit.
The indent really hampers the amount of play you have in shaping the fender to fit my bike.
I'm going to return the fender.

UFO Superbike Low Front Fender
I purchased and have been trying to install the UFO Superbike Low Front Fender Item #: 08-2224.
I guess it comes down to I'd rather pay another $30-50 and have the thing fit properly. If the new fender is in the correct place on one side with the fork where it's supposed to be then the other side has about 1.5 inch space.
I'm going to spend a little more time wrestling it into place but I just don't foresee being happy with the quality of the product! There is no way this thing is going to sit straight on the bike.

I'd read others talk about wind force on stock fender, too, but seems to me that when I'm in gusty weather (frequently, in the mountains of SW New Mexico) it feels like my body is the sail. I very definitely feel the push of the wind against my upper body and helmet. Didn't notice much, if any, difference between stock fender and the Acerbis I have now - but I sure like the appearance now. The fender is mounted on the Eagle Mike fork brace.
FWIW, since I'm on here now, bike in this shot has the home-made backrest, lowered Seat Concepts seat and saddlebags mounted far forward of the usual position - I ride solo 100% of the time. The green thing on cargo rack is a surplus US Army zippered duffel. I hike way back in the mountains a lot and rather than leave stuff for the thieves, I load jacket, helmet, etc into that and hide it in the brush nearby. Make sure to take a GPS reading when you do that. (ask me how I know to recommend that)
Un-happily, physical problems (old age) are going to force me to sell it in the near future - now that I've got about every farkle known to mortal man on the thing...................Lars.

I think I want to drop the fender.
I average 10,000 miles a year. 99% is road alot is highway since I take many extended trips on my bike. At over 30,000 miles now I never noticed or are just used to the wind being caught by the beak.
I do experience fatigue on my trips. I'm hoping the fork brace & lowering the fender will help.
I'm thinking Eagle Mikes fork brace. Not sure on the fender yet. Any thoughts from those who have already done it?

My 08 with stock hand guards had some speed wobble around 75mph
I added the EM fork brace and BarkBusters which mostly got rid of it. What really did the trick was the KTM front fender

Yeah, it does. I had to pay Acerbis for mine.
