Not necessarily. Once you remove the battery box, the air box and the brackets between the fenders and the support, you can usually work it out. It is definitely easier to do with one fender off though. If needed I would say the right one is easier to pull off, but not by much.

I have the battery box support and battery tray off and I'm still not finding a way. Doesn't seem to be much room.

O it's a pain. Specially with the fan shroud and the weight of everything. What's the reason for removal?
