some people say less wind resistance in the air... some do it for looks.. and i heard other people say they like to be able to see their front tires.... so i guess it depends

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.

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.
