|A Simple Way of Cleaning
up the back end of the bike
There are many ways to cut off the fender of a bike
-some are quite involved and elaborate. I chose the easiest way
possible. Many other bikes have fender eliminator kits available to
make the job easy and look great but not the little GS so we need to do
Removing the rear fender is quite easy. Remove the
seat, remove one bolt from the front, 2 from the sides and 2 from the
rear. Once it's removed you are ready to begin.
It's quite easy. I use a dremmel (the
greatest tool ever made) with a metal cutter at slow speed to cut the
plastic because it cuts straight and at slow speeds cuts plastic pretty
well. Of course you can use anything you like. Many people use
a razor knife or exacto knife to cut the fender.
I did this because the sun has already started to bleach
out the fender and it looks bad.
