    Is there a way to remove those little fork protectors? I don't want any chrome left on the bike when I'm done and those need to go. That is unless they are critical, like they hold on the boot or something. I'm thinking I can just cut the buggers off since they're plastic.

    I have a 650 Custom (which is very similar in many ways), and on my bike, there is a retainer ring on top that you can carefully pry up and off. Then the "fork protector" will just slide up. You will still have to cut the retainer ring as well as the protector, unless you want to slide the fork tubes down and out to slide them off.
    I cut them...Good riddance.

    Awesome! Thank you so much! Those buggers are as good as gone.

    I just broke mine off....LOL. I hate the way they look too.

    I was really tempted to grab em with a pair of pliers and go to town until they snapped off. But, I had a moment of clarity and came here first.

    What did you guys put in place of them after you took them off? I pulled the retaining ring off one and slid it up and I'm not real thrilled with what is left behind either. Any thoughts?

    I am wanting to take my fork covers off what is the best way to do this? What I am talking about is the full metal parts, is that possible? It is on my 1100 classic...

    Kuryakyn and several other manufacturers make lower fork covers fot the 1100. See Shane at SS Custom Cycle. I believe they run about $80-$100 a pair.

    I don't have a Classic, but I believe it's as easy as removing the front forks, taking them off, then reinstalling the front forks.
