Took me six years to change my mind and adapt the pointy fender, but only took minutes to make the change.  Great instructions I really appreciate you taking the time to post the pics and instructions. 
  I always thought a company would pick up on this and make some bolt ons, but no need now as this is so easy.
 Thanks again, John.

I did the mod on my 02' and loved it until I mounted a Baja Designs lighting kit. The weight of the tail light cracked both sides at the seat bolt holes. Did I undercut too much off or is it just not stout enough with the mod to support the weight?

      Great mod I love the look of my 250 rear fender and for those who like the updated look of the 250 fenders the front fender off of a 03-07 kx250 will fit on the kx 500 all you have to do is use a 3/8 drill to barely make the holes bigger so you can reinstall the metal grometts but the holes are a direct line up and the fender looks great.





Yeah I know the gas tank color doesn't match the UFO plastic but I am about to take care of that and thanks again for the mod on the rear fender.

By the way I used a jigsaw and sawzall to trim my rear fender it worked perfectly

The 09 and up 450 front fender fits too and I think looks the best.
