Default Pre without pseudo-girders? Anyone?

Does anyone have pictures of their Pre where you removed those stupid looking plastic girder things that are I guess supposed to be a chain guard? I'd like to see if my Kat would look better with those things cut off, or with them just repainted the color of the bike, as I am in the midst of sanding.

Thanks in advance.

He is talking about the kick plates on the bottom of the rear fairings. When i got my bike they were chromed. You can cut them off and it will look ok. It will open up that area of the bike more.

Kickplates? Is that what they are? Does it look better with them all one color, or better with them cut off (opinions please)?
