  • Cutting Fender??

    I was looking at some bikes today, and I noticed that some of them didn't have any flush mount blinkers for the rear...but that long ugly plastic piece that sits over the tire was gone. I got a dremmel, is it O.K. to cut most of the fender off...basically leave just enough there to hold on the license plate and the blinkers??

      Yes a dremmel will work. I used a Hacksaw on mine, But mine is cut further up.

              The first chop I did, I kept the stock blinkers. Recently though, I chopped the whole thing off, and went and bought some flush mounts. Its pretty much to your own personal taste and what you like and want.

                  depending on the year of the bike you can go with what i have and those are the integrated rear turn signals...

                            The competition works is expensive. Espcially when you consider you can acheive just about the same look for free, or damn cheap if you were to invest in a creese bracket, or make one of your own.

                              Its all personal preference. U can chop off enough to just leave the license plate bracket and signals..or chop the whole thing off, and get a creese bracket or make one of ur own for alot less and just bolt it up under the rear to the underside of the storage compartment.
