If you look in that how to, you will see one picture with Lamont cutting it off with it still on the bike. If you look at the next picture, you will see where he has it showing after he cut it but the full piece is off the bike. Pull it off the bike before you cut it. It is 4 bolts and the back half of the fender with the beaver just comes right off. This makes it MUCH easier to cut, and file/clean up the plastic as well as mount the new bracket. Then just put the whole thing back on. :bigthumbsup:

Hmmm, I was thinking a Sawzall. But thats just me.:joke:
If you are talking, on the bike, That would be like putting a bull in a china cabinet. If that saw saw was to get bound up, it might jerk around and take out the fender, ouch. I just used the hacksaw blade by itself and was slow and careful and it worked great. While still on the bike.

Well, if it gets away from you, it could cause an awful mess with stuff that you really don't want cut. It takes only a couple of minutes at most to saw through the beaver by hand.

By the time you haul out the extension cord and get everything setup for the sawzall, you'd be done with the hand cut, not to mention that the sawblade by hand will produce a higher quality cut.

I used a open hacksaw to do mine. Just cut the underside of the fender from right to left. There is no need to remove the fender to make the cut. Good luck.

There was nothing to it. I used a blade off my hack saw and just held it in my hand. Cut very easy. I have how to pics as well from when I did mine.

True. But for the extra 2 minutes of removing the fender you can file down any residual plastic and take pride in it being done clean. :bigthumbsup:
