Anybody cut their rear fender?

I've found the front fender mod, but has anyone trimmed down that rear scoop??? I'm contemplating trimming that pig down and didn't know if anyone had some ideas...

I am not sure how much you ride in rain or mud but the rear tire on a KLR is one hell of a water or mud pump. Mine used to throw water and crap up on my back and helmet with the fender stock so I would hate to see what it would do if it were shorter.

I cut half of the inner rear fender off & moved the license plate & light up below the brake light on the outer fender. I lowered the bike 3" & did not want it eating the tire & causing other damage if the rear shock was bottomed out.

I have cut or trimmed my rear fender also....Got rid of that whaletail look. You can cut it along the fold lines on the sides using a recipricating saw, air body saw, or electric. It's easy. Even a regular saw will work but takes a bit longer. Sorry no pics of it after I did it? Hmmm..?
