I just got a 2000 300ex a week ago and I was thinking about having the front fenders shaved down. Is this a pretty common thing? I think they look kind of goofy stock, but I dont want to spend the money for aftermarket plastic. Any advice or opinions is appreciated.

A lot of people does it, but if you ride in any wet or muddy conditions, you will get covered with mud.

Use masking tape to draw your lines before you cut. Like they said, If you do anything other than MX I recommend leaving them on.

i cut my bros 300 fenders....just cut the front or top part from the nose straight on an angle to right where the fender drops down and not the back and you should be fine in everything just imagine where the mud flying off your tires would go and leave that there....but def use masking tape for a straight line i used my metal cutter off my air line but anything should do and you can always sand them afterwards

I wouldn't cut em, if your curious as to how dirty it will get, ride without the front plastic on, and just go through some wet grass, and come back and let us know if you want to cut your fenders.


Now I have thought of redesigning them, but that's because I have 400ex front a arms, and the durablue 2+2 axle in the rear, making my fenders useless for mud protection.

So I might try to add heat to the front, and see if I can't pull the fenders out a little to cover the front tires a little more.

I can deal with the back, but the front throws it right in your face on turns.
