    I have a drive that has Mountain Lion and Bootcamp installed on it, I used to use the Mountain Lion partiton but I now no longer need it and would like more space for Bootcamp.

    Can I use Disk Utility to remove the Mountain Lion partition without damaging the Bootcamp side of things and still be able to use Bootcamp ?

    not without risk, if you want to increase your windows partition, 2 options

    use camptune

    redo boot camp with a larger partition size

    if you really never use OSX, you can get away with a 25-35gb OSX partition leaving lots of room for windows

    I assume by what you say Camptune will allow me to increase my Bootcamp partition on the fly so to speak.

    Yes but another poster suggested winclone, which also would work. They are created for different purposes but helps you solve your situation.
