Rear Fender Removal
Ok, I am not the best Wrench, in fact I am amateur at best. I have bought a second set of tins for a paint project.
I want to know if I can remove and install the rear fender without having to remove the rear wheel? Service manual says to remove the wheel. This is where my confidence begins to wain and I don't want to mess with the wheel, belt, brakes etc. Can I do this with the bike on the jack say 6-8 inches off the floor? The bike would be secured to the jack of course.
The local shop I deal with wants 2K to remove and install the tins I do not think there is that many labor hours involved for a professional. I have tools, some common sense, a service manual and room to store the bike this winter while the paint is being done.
Any tips, help or tutorial from someone that has done it will be greatly appreciated.
