The Magnum does come with a 21" wheel and fender. The fender is styled the same but it is larger than the fender for the 18" wheel.

So if I go to a 21” wheel with the stock fender, and have it fit but look funny, I’ll have to seek out a magnum fender to buy and paint I guess.

or go fibreglass aftermarket but remember the front fender does act as a fork brace to some extent so I revkon steel is better.

Yes, if you want the same look you'll have to find a Magnum fender to buy. They are very hard to find so it may be costly.

I did go 21" and didn't even attempt to use the stock fender. The radius would be off and the 21" tire is quite a bit more narrow. You could use a Magnum fender or an aftermarket fender.
I went with a steel fender from RC Components.

21" fender to go with the 21" wheel. I have seen an 18" fender mounted above a 21" wheel and IMHO, it looks bad. Nothing flowed right, it looked like what it was, parts mated together that weren't meant to be.

I still say a 160/60R18 front tire looks and works great. No muss, no fuss, nothing else to change.

That's the idea looks great!
Did mine no regrets.

Stock 18" fender will NOT work with a 21" wheel. A 21" tire is 1" an a 1/2" inch taller so it can't fit

Yes they don't make a 160 front so you have to run a rear backwards. Kevinx did a perile dragon I think
