 I put it in my vice with plastic jaw on the outside and a piece of 4x4 on the inside because the jaws wouldn't close. I used masking tape over the area to be cut. Then using a razor and straight edge cut a straight line in the tape to match the sides. Then used the Dremel with a metal cut off blade making small passes each time. After it was cut off I smoothed out the sharp edges with the dremel.  Then turn it over and do the other side. Trick is don't be in a hurry, just take off small amounts at a time. It does remove your warning label.

Thanks for the details - I'm going to give this a shot.

Success - thanks JMK! turned out really clean. I scored a line with my table saw and sled then used a Dremel from there. A little filing and it looks great. I much rather replace my rear tire then to have to go through that again though.
We'll see how it feels the next time I take it out.

interesting... Homer, could you send a pic of this mod?

I couldn't get a picture to load (thanks JMK) but I see you got it handled.

If anyone else is interested, I used a vice as well and started with a Dremel but my patience got in the way and I changed up to a metal cut-off tool and de-burred the edge. Took all of about 10 minutes.

did you notice any difference in how it runs or is it just in my head?

It seems to pull harder especially going uphill 2 up. I do have a TTS tuner and Fullsac header and cores. I figured more air couldn't hurt.

Oh no, isn't that the same as taking the tag off of your mattress?   :D

I think it actually does pull harder overall... I have the same set up as Homer (TTS, Fullsac header w/ 2.25" cores)
