For Rescue YFZ and others that want some race cut fenders pics here they are. I just did it yesterday after looking at a bunch. I wanted it to still look good with the headlights on and not have the headlights stick out a bunch past the cut fenders. I was pretty meticulous and cut very slowly, taking my time to do it correctly (replacements are $175 from Yamaha). I used a fine tooth hack saw blade in my hand and taped everything off. After the fenders were cut, I then went back with a fine hand file and a small piece of 400 grit sand paper, being very carful. Look at the removed fender piece for a (sort of) guide of how far I went with it. I cut on the edge of the tape (as a guide). You guys may or may not like it, but I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out! :D

yes. u cut back wind resistance. u can speed up the quad by 2mph by cutting the fenders. there are other ways of doing it though so u can still get a little lift from jumps.

I have always had a quad with race cut fenders so I am used to it. It feels funny riding one with fenders to me. I don't really notice any more stuff hitting me unless I am in mud, then you can SEE the difference between me and my buddies who have full fenders. :D
