The biggest reason I cut mine is I wanted to do a custom paint job on it and I knew that it would hold up a lot better and look better longer if I cut the fenders and eliminated 90% of the flex. There's much less change of scratching them doing tree shots when there cut, also I can see the front tires so I don't catch one on a tree or a root wad when I'm doing the trees shots. I only ride the dunes so the fenders aren't needed, that and I hated the batwing rear fenders on the 700R.
Yes, looks very good. Im cutting mine just for the simple fact of not buying new plastic from my roll over I had. :grin_nod: When ya get ready for makin that yellow mean machine in the background to really sing, let me know- done up my daughters not too long ago with great success.
I'm would like to cut mines to but I do alot of night riding so need to keep the lights on. So I don't know how they would look cut with the stock lights on. I like the look of the stock light so would like to keep them. Any one got any pics with cut fenders and the stock lights on. Maybe a little photoshop guys.
