Front fender requirements

I’m swapping the front wheel on my custom with s Classic rim and tire. Obviously the front fender won’t fit anymore after this, right? My question is, I see a lot of guys bikes with no front fender. How much road debris are you throwing up at yourself, your radiator etc. I ride a lot to and from work, some highway some back roads.

I have fun it with no front fender and no problems with debris. If you have any rain or wetness on the road you’ll want your fender back though...I chopped the oem 800B fender for mine...

How or what did you do to chop the 800 fender? Can you get specific, maybe some pics?

Looking for fit advice on front fenders

I need some sizing advice on a front fender to chop for my vulcan 900. I put the Classic wheel and Commander 2 tire on the front, so now the custom fender won't fit. Can I mod any fender that has the proper width? Any suggestions on make/ models that already have the right dimensions? I am not looking to go BCB with this. Just need to keep the rain/debris off myself and radiator.

Has anyone figured how to get the custom fender to fit over the larger wheel/tire?

I just picked up a 1600 fender. It’s bolts right up, all metal and welded to the bracket. Really a much nicer product than the 900 fender. I’m not sure if I’ll cut this one up or leave it large, dresser style(see avatar). I also picked up a knock off HD 1200 short fender and used mounting bracket for a 900. This will get fab’d into something similar to what you have. Pics to come. Thanks for the help.
