Simple Deform Bend not bending along Z axis correctly?

I have a model that I want a slight bend in, but it behaves extremely weird on the Z axis.
I tried other axis’s but to no luck and the model’s rotation is 0,0,0 and even tried without an empty but no luck.

What am I missing?

Hi mate I just answered a similar question here

Have a play around, and be aware that the position of empty and your objects origin are where they need to be. Plus, I am not sure on this but you may need more topology for it to work

Hope you can figure it out

Sorry for responding so late, haven’t done much work on the model since.
Thanks for the reply and solution!
