I have used fender washers from the local hardware store and used them as shims between the fender and lower triple clamp. Don't put them on all four bolts, just the one or two that will make the fender tweek the back the correct way. I'm sorta anal about that kind of stuff as well, plus I like my fender pointing to where I'm headed.

My new front fender can tweeked too, was sorta pissed for being brand new. I did what yamahacrazy did, but I put some blocks between the tire and bottom fender and tweeked it more the opposite direction and heated it up and let it sit overnight.
