gen4 front fender on gen5

Hey guys, I was recently told that a Gen4 front fender will fit on a Gen5. Is that true? From what I know, the gen5 forks are 10mm further apart than gen4 as far as wheel spacing goes--but that obviously doesn't speak for the mounting points for the fender. Has anyone ever tried this? I am trying to see if I can run a gen4 fender on my gen5--because I prefer it more.

I know the hayabusa fender fits both, I have one on my Gen 4 and I've seen them on 5,could prob easily modify to make anything fit. I have 2 Gen 4 fenders if needed

It'll fit. Ran my whole Gen4 bodywork, less the tailsection, for a couple years.

Did you have to stretch the fender outward a little bit?

Not that I can recall. Seemed to fit fine to me.

When i fitted gen5 fender (race bodywork) the story was:
Yes, fender is a bit wider (gen5 forks more apart). Fender did bend enough to fit. But then I replaced front wheel and when taking out axle the fender pulls forks apart (turning lower fork legs). This makes installing axle very uncomfortable. Ended putting spacers between fender and fork, problem solved.

Edit: Sorry this is vice versa, but same applies, I think you will need to bend fender out when installing axle.

Gen4 race: high spec.
Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa 2013: stock.
Kawasaki KX450F 2016: love it.
