So after reading a post here somewhere, I measured mine and sure enough it was backwards, I was adding the skid plate so I was working on it anyway, I was going to leave it until I had more time but now it was bugging me so I got it done.

Didn't have to remove the wheel, let the air out and found a right size wood dowel just to put a bit of pressure on the tire and the bolts came right out.

Before & after

See now I had suggested airing down the tire for screw access and several people said it can't be done without removing the wheel. Thank you for proving it can be done.

I corrected the orientation of my front fender yesterday with only a single wrench and some patience. The wheel stayed in place, and the tires stayed fully inflated.

The most frustrating part is definitely getting the bolts out. There's roughly negative 1mm of extra space to slip them out between the bracket that the side reflector is attached to and the tire. A liberal application of nasty language and wiggling things around eventually got them free. I'll upload a couple photos later, but the fender is made of a thin enough sheet metal that it'll deform enough to slip out between the forks.

Once you've got the bolts off, it will appear as though the fender is still captive between the forks, but if you apply a pinching pressure, the fender can be made to slide forward.

Pinch now:

and slide it out:
