I cut mine a few inches shorter after I ran over something that took a big chunk out of it. I think I was inspired by how Thomas Alberti had cut down his. I prefer having some protection from getting gunk all over the shock and spring.
If you're really patient, you could draw a line on it where you want to cut, then run a really sharp knife or a single edged razor blade around the line. Then trace over it again 40 or 50 times, applying a bit more pressure each time. Eventually you'll cut through the plastic, and if you've been careful, you'll have a nice smooth edge.
I used sand paper to smooth out my edge once it was cut.
