Am I being thick or does one have to remove the front tire to remove the fender?
Hey martyzx11,Yes,I believe you have to remove the tire.It's a poor design and very annoying.Last year I put a zzr 1200 fender on my 11,now the fender can be removed seperately.
Personally, I wouldn't do this. The front fender is quite easy to break and cracks often appears. If you miss two screws. more load will go through the remaining mounting points which will raise the odds of more cracks. MHO....I'm going to see how it works/looks/feels using just the 4 side screws and if it's good, I probably won't reinstall the 2 upper screws.
