+1 ... the supermoto fender is made for a 17" front wheel. It is NOT safe on a 21" wheel if you plan on riding offroad at all, rocks and crap will go right into your lights and windshield and face. Go get one of the KTM 690 Enduro fenders and be done with it. See Finn's StormTrooper F800 build - he's using the same one. Looks good, functions well.
