I appreaciate your opinion, while recognizing you're not well experienced with the sachs g3.

those down bars are near entirely useless, theyre almost exclusively an aesthetic choice and only support the front motor mount. They have no impact on the frame, and people regularly remove them entirely when running alternate swapped motors. So yea, I totally would cut out a piece of that frame.

Also you can find those pieces cheaper than the intakes
