No issues so far . . . No different than running a fork brace (2.5" wide on top). It provides additional support for the lower fork guards . . . Which my brake lines are mounted to. You definitely need to eliminate the cross-over brake line:

Only 2.5" OEM fender remaining:

I have not ran into the real sticky mud yet . . .
