Rebel rear fender takeoff

Ok I really want to take this fender off... bike looks so much better without it. Not really sure where to start. I would be forever grateful if someone could give step by step instructions or a video *cross fingers*. If anybody has done this, guidance would be greatly appreciated.

I have neither step by step, nor a video. But i did give the bike a look, and you can see where the brackets to hold the fender attach to the bike. if you take off the four bolts that hold on the rear fender, you can easily remove the whole fender, leaving just the brackets it attaches to. should be easy to get the bracket off from there.


I haven't removed the fender, but i have attached the rear cargo carrier to my bike, which means i've had to remove the four bolts that hold the fender to the bracket, and that's how i know the fender itself is very easy to remove.

I tagged a disassembly diagram to a post before, not sure who it was, do you want it.
It's very very easy to take off!

I am rocking a sideways plate and wired the original tail light up to that.

I just took off mine. How do you mount the seat again because it's previously attached to those long "arm" bracket things

Here are some updated pics. Now just struggling with the exhaust... hopefully the light lasts as I'm not an expert electrician..

Is it legal where you are to have the license plate in front of the rear tire like that?

Doesn't seem like it'd be visible to a cop behind you in their cruiser.

Ehhhhhh, not really.... Still working on the license plate mounting. Passed a cruiser this morning and didn't get lit up. I will be raising the license plate some time this week but need to fab some mountings.

That looks amazing though, I'm interested to see how you get the plate mounting all setup though because I feel like that could make or break the way the rear end looks completely!
