A torch...


:badteeth:


I think most on this site will say a dremel/rotozip. By far the easiest and most forgiving...

i used a Dremel with the little round ball on it.! My plastic was melting a little down by my exhaust on the bottom where it is exposed.
good to go now!

:+1: use a cutter to cut the fairing to get it close to where you want it, then use a sander to even it out and clean the edges

I have used a mini right angle air grinder on plastic parts when trimming up mudflaps - works great and quick. You just need a steady hand. Dremel also works wonders too.

Another vote for the good ole dremel. Very easy to use. Just tape off what you want to get rid of and carefully work your way to the tape. That's how I cut the notch for GP shifting and it came out great. If you didn't know better you would think it came like that from the factory.

I second the Dremel....Ever since I got it, I find reasons to go to the hardware store and get new attachments.
