Hi Anonymous, this is not an easy job for first timers or myself since I have no idea what year and model XL you have, that being said here is the short version: remove seat, rear wheel, and fender strut covers. There is usually 5 bolts that hold the fender to the frame with spacers and grommets in between, 2 on each side and 1 at the front center. Disconnect turn signal and tail lite wires and remove fender. Good luck

How to remove rear fender?

Remove the seat. Unplug the connector for the taillight and rear turn signals. Stabiliize the bike and remove the upper shock bolts. The job is also easier if you remove the rear tire. Remove the bolts from the fender struts on both sides. Be sure to hold the fender or clamp it place when removing the bolts so the fender doesn't slip out of place and get scratched. Unplug the turn signals from the taillight housing. Pull the wires and connectors through the holes in the struts. Lift the fender out.
