So, I have researched it, and read up on it (Thank You Redhorse) and I am going to do the DIY Fender eliminator Sunday.


Is there anything I should watch for? It seems super basic and easy enough but everytime I think that I end up in a mess trying to pull something together. Will I need to buy replacement anythings before I start? It all just bolts right bacon (back on, lol, had to leave the BACON typo in there)on right?


I am just checking...I just want it to go simply and smoothly...


I will take pics.

Thanks for the compliment. Making a few more changes over the winter. New color and some other things.

As far as the fender eliminator is concerned, "you can do it!"

The only downside to this procedure is that the plate is still mounted to a piece of plastic. I chose to go with the yamaha fender eliminator because it's steel and doesn't vibrate like crazy when the bike is running.

Yeah Scoper...


and I noticed that as well.


My thoughts are that I might as well get as much out of that piece of plastic as I can. Mod, ride it till it breaks, then get the now one.


If it never breaks/has problems...I save $50.


plus, its lighter. Lighter = faster. lol


See that, always thinkin....lol

I did the Redhorse rear fender mod about three years and 18,000 miles ago and still going strong. As the other guys have said it's a piece of cake to do.

Alright....


Done and Done...


Here are the pics.






































































































































Just add a license plate and its done.


Simple enough, I think it too me 45 minutes and I was slacking.


Bit of advice, when your cutting the light out, cut from the back...I read everything about it on the site and I dont think anyone said anything about that. Sure was easy going at it from the back side.(I swear I said that some where else.)lol


PEESOWT!

Your kidding right? How much do you want to bet that your plate will be cracked by July?
