Mod/trim front fender

Hi, anyone got some pic of their trimmed front fenders?

I like many have always had trouble removing front wheel because of the length of the fender nose. Want to give it a trim but don't want it to look like shit. Need some inspiration before taking out the dremel.

Re: Mod/trim front fender

Really? I have never had an issue with tire removal due to the fender. Maybe look at the design of some endurance bikes?

Google TOBC Racing, their GSX-R600 just won the Daytona 200 with Danny Eslick on board. They run a cut front fender for their quick change setup, take a look at their designs.

Cheers Anthony D. Yeah mine always catches. Pain in the arse. If my front paddock stand lifted 2cm more I'd be fine. Cheaper to mod fender than the stand.

TOBC fender looks good. Definitely given me some inspiration

Fender i had trimmed on my 03 600 a few years about back, not as drastic as tthe TOBC bike. I tried to follow the original contour just removed an inch or two. Ignore the improper safety wire on the caliper.

Nice and discret JTS! But I'm sure did the job!
