My front fender was installed backwards from the factory when I bought it. I told the Yamaha salesperson that it looked to be installed backwards and he told me,"I've seen so many factory bikes and I assure you 100% this is not backwards!" As soon as I got home I took it off (you have to take the front wheel off so the bolts holding the fender in have room to become fully unseated) and reattached it correctly. It looks sooo much better! I'm amazed at how many times this has happened to folks who bought a SCR..
