When you say not sitting straight, do you mean the tire looks off center, or do you mean the fender itself is crooked/ slanted? It’s hard to tell in that pic with the bike on the kickstand
The 300 arm wouldn’t have anything to do with how the fender is sitting
On a side note, where did you run your wire for the led brake light? I just installed all of this stuff yesterday, going to tackle the wiring today, was contimplating where to run the wire out of the fender. I might drill a hole, which I’m not crazy about

Thats why I’ve never gone up from my 280.. seems every mm over hangs off one side..
Not much you can do with the left side of the swingarm. Drive shaft has to be there. Can't make it smaller. So yeah, big tires are offset. IIRC, even the 280 has a small offset due to the drive shaft. The offset is built into the Coastal Moto rims from the get-go. I'd like to go 300 next tire. but we'll see.

Mine doesn’t look to be off by much, and I used the small shim on the left side, so it’s not like I pushed it over much....maybe a mm
These fenders are pretty thick, not much flex in them to even squeeze washers in there. To be more clear on my other reply, I shimmed the wheel itself over (not the fender) with the small shim that came with my arm. Probably a mm
I remember reading a post by a guy that did this set up that had a maroon m109r, the one with the fat front tire set up. He said something about machining his fender strut. I’m trying to think logically how that would help. I can’t come up with how it would.
