Fender Eliminator for a K12RS?

Does anyone know of fender eliminator kits for a K12RS? Or have pictures of a custom fender eliminator? It is more difficult than a regular crotch rocket or dirtbike because the rear fender is a huge piece that runs up under the seat and contains the tailight and the only way to change it would be to do some precise cutting.

A common modification of the K-RS is to take a saw to the rear fender and cut it off behind the license plate, just below where the locknut is for the fender extension.

Cutting it here removes the bulk of the rear fender, but allows it to be reattached using the fender extension bolt and two extra bolts through the bottom of the license plate.

I haven't seeen this modification mentioned in a long time, so you might have to search the archives for a picture.

Edit: Did an archive search, and found this thread with pictures:
