What would be the best way to cut the bottom portion of tail section below the license plate? That has definitely got to go now! What have others done?

Roto-Zip, higher RPM's & cleaner cut, smooth cut with sand paper than scotch brite, final step is Mothers - Back to Black :thumbup

Added touch to make it look professional - apply black door edge guard to cut-off area :yesnod

What about unscrewing it and taking it off completly? Yamaha makes it pretty easy to do this. Much easier than most other bikes.

Lift rear seat , remove 4 allen head bolts , disconnect a few wires and the whole thing falls out . Use plastic plugs to fill in holes . Tag bracket relocation...Cut small bracket from sheetmetal , bend and mount between rear pegs using the two snap in fasteners that Yamaha so graciously put there . Done .
