Thanks for the nice welcoming, so the first mod I did was to remove the flapper valve. I've been wanting to get an undertail kit for it but am worried about cutting the fender.

Hey SubSailor, do you think adding an undertail kit hurts or helps the value of the bike?
I can't really say what effect it has on resale value.
I'm sure a perfectly original condition bike would fetch more.
I myself know that the bike is not rare as thousands were built.
And I didn't really care for the rear fender anyways, so my buying criteria was how well the bike was maintained and what toys it came with.
However, with mine I did adopt the attitude not do anything to the bike that I couldn't undo.
If I wanted to, I could restore my bike back to it's OEM condition with just a little effort.
So in your case, I'd say buy a rear fender and then you can modify the current fender anyways you want to fit an undertail.
You can if need be, remove the undertail and install the unmodified fender and return it back to OEM shape.

The undertail will just fl
