The cutout is just the outline, either make a group in photoshop with a vector mask, or using clipping masks. Just search google for "how to use vector mask in photoshop" or clipping mask, it's a pretty self explanatory thing once you see it.

Basically think of it as painting a room. You don't want to get the wall paint on the window trim, so what do you do? Get masking tape and tape the window trim so you don't get paint on it, same principle applies with a vector mask.

Yeah I pretty much understand how it works, but I can't see it on the bike, right?

Why do you need to see it on the bike? It's just graphics, the only thing you need to see is what you see in photoshop.

Is it cool to do swingarm logos and stuff or do we need to strictly adhere to the cutout?
