Fender Eliminator - Thinking about one of these for my 919

Found this cool looking item, made out of aluminum. Only problem I will need to add a piece for signal light mounts behind the licence plate somehow.

thoughts?

Very cool looking piece! Not sure how it attaches, but be careful if you have to drill into the undertray. The ECU is in there.

Yeah, I gotta go out to the garage and take a look around the bike's rear to see it this thing is worth the hassle. Does look cool though.

I installed the Jardine one and it was an easy mount, so maybe use that layout to see whether this one will fit right in? On the negative side, it does leave a bit of black on top, but it's still better than stock.



The Jardine one also came with bolts that had lights in them to illuminate the license plate. You just wire them into the old plate light. Pretty easy.

I know gn83tm made a custom bracket that is about as tidy as you're going to get with respect to mounting the plate as high vertically while still allowing room for the turn signals to clear beneath the exhaust.

I don't think you can mount them too much closer to the exhaust than that.

A word to the wise. If you actually ride your bike in all weather conditions or just haven't grown out of that "I have to make it look cool phase". You'll learn to appreciate the rear fender. Without it even a small amount of moisture from someone washing their car in their driveway and letting the hose wet the road will put a wet stripe up your backside let alone an actual rainstorm that you get caught out in.

I like this mount. It should bolt right up to the fender mount under the tail section. Run a couple LED plate lights and a CustomLED integrated taillight and you're all set.

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.

Well said!! I have been through that on my R6. I got the 919 specifically for the rainy/winter months here in Seattle. And I have no plans to eliminate the fender.

I have the Jardine eliminator and mine was old enough that it didn't come with the lighted bolts. I used the empty space above the plate to mount the OEM tag light and it looks much better than stock but without the need for new signals or an integrated tail light. It's not ideal but I think it's a good compromise.

Maybe I should have stated that better. I don't have this mount, but it LOOKS like it would mount right up. I fabricated my own out a piece of aluminum and my plate is tucked right up under the tail. I have a CustomLED and LED plate lights. I'll post a pic...

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.

I mounted my eliminator kit on the stock plastic of the stock piece.

All I did was cut plastic to size.

those single sided exhaust really do cleanup that back end.
The 919 looks great with the after market exhausts, and even better with the one-sided singles.....very nice.

Thank you. I mainly got it because the bike had a bad case of the stink and I work in a professional setting. My whole office area reeked of exhaust when I rode in. Not to mention my jackets. This got rid of it. Plus it looks awesome. Hindsight, wish I would have gone with the carbon fiber to better match the color of the bike. Maybe some day I will swap it out.

So how do you powder coat the parts? Do you open the part and send them to a shop or do you take them to a local shop for powder coating or do you do that yourself? I am curious since I want to powder coat some of the parts on mine.

Take the part off and send it to the shop. When it's done, slap it back on. Or buy parts online that are already powder coated and swap them out.
