Another Rear fender delete

Doing some work on the bike today, i decided to see how it would look fenderless, i love it! it would be a done deal if i had a tail light to put on it, plus removing those little supports looks kind of difficult, no fenderless for me just yet.

I disagree. It just looks like a bastardized jap bike. Do a small, cropped fender if you must.

I think it looks great fenderless as well. It adds a more "fast" appeal to the bike and gets rid of some of the "cruiser" look "same call this japanizing". But Leaving mine off deff sucked. Water/dirt/rocks all hitting me in the back. And yes the supports are a bitch to remove. Easier to cut or remove the tire and get to them. One of these days I will purchase a nice short fender, but not today...

Ah I love that they have Braile keyboards now for the blind.

Looks better with NO Fender then it does with it and the dogs ass removed. Removing DA and NOT putting Air suspension in looks like true crap. So I say put DA back on or take off the whole thing.

In the OPs case it looks more or less fine because it looks a little Cafe-racer styled with the handlebar setup, but all that space under the tire looks just

Check out this guy who managed a fenderless setup with brake light and air ride, one of my favorite DXs! http://www.1130cc.com/forums/member.php?u=30904

Air Ride being the key to it working.

I hate bikes that leave the seat hanging in the breeze.

You are out of your mind, the thing looks like Pure Shit on a 240 tire can you imagine how it looks on a 180?

Looks 100% better than the seat hanging off the back. Dude can always go to a 200 or 240 set up.

I have a 200 on my stocke rear end, it aint that much differentce from 180. If he is going to spend that kind of Scratch he might as well just get an $1200 Air ride system and leave it be and do this, which is Proper way to remove Dogs Ass
