I thought about just ditching the fenders and tubing it as well, it would be stupid easy if it was carbed lol. But nope I got a mess of a wiring harness to attach and secure to the fenders.

So I was thinking leaving the front width and just trimming the fenders, core support to allow for clearance.

you'll be glad you pinched it, i kept mine full width like that and it hits everything !

with the shadows and the black marker lines it makes the fenders look like hell when they are not.....well the drivers side is good but the pass side is rusty and didn't fold as easy.
