Dealership told me to not take them off. I haven't but I think it would look good without them. I know why they're there but are they really necessary?
I cut mine up enought to fit it with the 250 , not sure if there is enought left to get sothing stuck, I did put it on for pasanger safty.StrykenShane said:I removed the lower when I installed my 250, with my luck I'm sure it'll wind up costing me but no issues so far. My dealer told me even with the guard you can get crap up in there and in his opinion I'm better off without it. He said they have had many belts fet damaged from stuff getting hung up between the lower belt guards and the belt but rarely between the upper belt guard and the belt. He felt I should keep the upper since I do occasionaly ride with a passenger.
