I want to know if the 2010 yz450 front fender will work on my 08 and if it is a direct bolt on or if I have to drill new holes or something I searched but couldn't really find anything

The OEM 2010 fender will not bolt directly to the bike, but if you redrill two of the three holes, it will.

This one fits:

There are 4 bolts, but only two need to be redrilled. Bolt your fender upside down on top of the new one and use it as a template.

The Cycra fender in the post I linked to bolts up.

I bought one from rockymnt and drilled all four holes out. I shifted the fender forward when I did this to avoid having my fender being scratched from the airflow veins on the rad's. For my new project though I'll def buy one with predrilled holes. I also converted the 2010 rear fender to work on my bike :smirk:.


Post number 10. At the time I didn't have a white rear fender to cut up to do the mod so I used my stock blue one to cover the difference between the two styles. My plan is to buy a white stock one and cut it up to get rid of the blue plastic's. I'm doing the same thing on my black plastics that I'm putting on it.
