Best Fender Eliminator Kit

http://www.pureperformancecycles.com...X-R600-750.jpg




im looking for a fender eliminator kit that is the same layout of that one in the html pasted in the post.

its for a honda 919 2002 and i want one that fits the license plate closer to the engine and behind the wheel. i hope thats not a confusing way to put it.

but ive googled it and cant find a name for that specific type. and so i hope someone on here knows the answer.

Well let me rephrase... I haven't seen one for the 919 in the United States. And my experience with ordering parts from Europe and Canada is that the shipping cost far out weight the cost of the part itself.

it'd probably be easier integrate the taillight then fab your own holder for the placement where you want it. just use the screws with the lights on them so no cops can bitch about you not having it illuminated at night

Also, only illegal in certain states. I looked into it for Idaho and it just has to be visible, and lit (I put LED mounting bolts in).

IMO, my setup is actually more visible than stock, due to no obstruction and better lighting.

And no, I don't really get a lot of crud on the license plate. It actually stays cleaner than the old spot where it was next to the sooty exhaust ports (with my homemade fender eliminator kit, see second and third pics). I believe Osiris re-mounted his to the same above-hugger position as mine, and even with stock pipes, you can still see it fairly easily.

FMVSS section 108 would disagree with 'only in some states'....but then again if the state doesn't follow the FMVSS, they aren't going to enforce it

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

Might be the case. I called the police dept. before I made the change and they said as long as it's visible I'm good.

Seriously, do it yourself. $8 for LED mounting bolts and one of these with correctly drilled holes to match OEM rear fender (got mine for 85 cents).

TP/TPA Tie Plates

Just watch where you run your wires. Don't wanna hit anything important. Like the ECU. Like I did.

as long as the plate is above the rear wheel, its most likely legal. Depends on the state's requirements for license plates i guess. I agree that putting the signals down in there as you are suggesting is dumb but I dont think that was the idea of the original poster... the way it read was he just wanted to move the plate.

Homemade sorta

took some cues from fellow members, used the stock plate mount, eBay turn signals, LED plate frame and TADA... friend did basically the same with his and he has duals up high so it'll work on either exhaust setup.

bbb2, looks good. just one suggestion: you might want to consider swapping out those cheap-o ebay led lights with a set of higher quality/brigher led lights such as a custom led integrated board or rizomas. they're expensive but it's well worth it to make sure people behind you actually see you.

i've had experience with those cheap ebay lights and they're bright when you look directly into them but when you step back 50 feet they're not, even worse if you're not looking directly at them.

+1. On my last bike I had some ebay led blinkers. I thought they were the shit. Then my father told me how much they sucked when he rode behind me. Thats when I got the rizomas and started the custom led tail light buy. Now everyone can see it well.

@googleit, when you mounted you plate in the stock location, what did you do about the gap between the rear cowl and the plate? I got myself a cheap universal fender eliminator and there seems to be a gap between the bolting location and the cowl. I can see the turn wires that are tucked into the tail section of the bike and I'm concerned that water will get into the tail section with the ECU and start causing electrical problems...

When I had the plate mounted at the rear of the tail below the taillight (between my Sato pipes) I was using a jimmy rigged unit I built myself and painted. Here are some pics, the bottom one is my current setup (now that I have a single side exhaust). Sorry if the pics aren't that great, didn't have very good lighting in my garage.

If you notice, I took the stock license plate light, and bolted it to the top of those two brackets which in turn go through the two attachment loops at the rear of the tray (the fender bolted to these holes). The bottom half of those brackets held onto the license plate tray and the turn signals.

It was really quite ghetto, but when painted black, looked very clean from the back. It was very minimal, which was my original goal.

I first built the eliminator just to get an idea of how it worked; eventually thinking that I would build another one of better quality. But that one worked so well and looked great, I just left it. Still have it in the garage, actually...

When I bought mine it only came with the rear signals, but the matching ones can be found at the link below. Try the Series 2 Single Filament and they should match up pretty well. I have had them for almost 8 years and they have help up really well.

OK I got the competition werkes (not that theres much choice these days)... Anyone have a good recommendation on black oblong mirrors? The ones Im seeing online just arent quite what Im looking for they either look alien space craft or like they are flimsy and wont hold up.
