Default Rear fender struts

Any of you swap out the curved fender struts to the straight ones?

And will they fit.

Also I am trying to find a smooth stock looking rear fender, with no tail light or plate mount holes.



Thanks

The reason i ask is because the guy at the local harley shop said thats what people are doing to have a smooth fender if putting straight fender struts on them and then trimming the finder right above the plate mounts.
