First thing is first, mix a tall drink of choice:arsenal(mine is a captain and coke). First step I measured about 4.5 inches from the tip of the front fender back, cut it straight off. I then use the cut off piece as a template for my trace line and final cuts. Lay the cut off piece over the fender and carefully trace with a utility knife. I made about 4 passes carefully with progressive pressure(DON"T go all the way through yet!). Then from underneath the fender(start on right or left) I cut all the way through the fender. It comes off really clean if you take your time. I then sand the final piece with 100, 150, then 220 grit sandpaper. It came out real nice. Much better than the factory duck bill. I think it looks like a true supermoto bike now.:thumbup: Only thing left to do is go rip up your tires!(tomorrow cuz I had the drinks):bike:

The only thing that I would do different is less ice!:drunk:
I'd switch it up to Sailor Jerry rum. It tastes the same, IMO a bit better (it's spiced very nicely), and its stronger, and cheaper!


The fender does look good though!

You could have gone for the Acerbis fender instead... but you did an awesome job in the cutting I would say...

However, the Acerbis is a nightmare to fit...:damn::damn:

Here's the result... :D



I want to keep my original plastics... ermm... original... :lol:

Looks WAY better. The main things putting me off the looks of the WR are the huge stock muffler/heat shield and that front fender. it actually looks almost as good as a DRZ now! ;)
