Yes there will be fitment issues, since the rubbermount rear fenders are wider than the solidmount ones.

I don't know how much wider, because I don't know how wide a solidmount fender is. However, the rubbermount fender is about 8¼" wide, maybe a bit more. That won't fit between your fender supports, will it?

They're wider because the rubbermounts have wider rear tyres: 150mm wide instead of 130mm.

Measure the distance between your fender struts and this will tell you how wide of a fender will fit on your bike. How deep will be determined by the size of rim/tire you run.
