Everyone before MY20 when they started coming on R&Ms.

It's an added precaution to prevent the belt from coming off the rear cog, but if your wheel is straight in the dropouts and you stay on top of your belt tension as it stretches, it's not essential in my personal opinion (Professionally, it's 100% essential.)

Is there a reason you want to remove it?

i may do it to fit my trailer hitch, coho xc ballz has a anti rotation notch on it, the snubber arm used the frame notch, either that or grind the notch off the burley qr.

Can you hitch the trailer to the other side?

My Burley trailer is hitched to the left side of my RM using an RM hitch.
