If you are doing the integrated tail light you can do your own fender eliminator for free and it is real easy! + all the parts you need are already on the fender!

ripper speaks the truth... i just intergrated my turn signals into the tail lights and all it cost me for the whole thing was 15 bucks for the tail light intergrater...

and i took the original license plate holder and reattached it and it looks and works really sweet...

i went outside and took this and a video which is much better...



i basically copied what i saw a couple guys here do....

remove the shovel... take the original license bracket and drill (carefully) 2 holes in the back of the tray.. making sure not to drill the ecu..... then i wired the turn signals into the tail light assembly using a trailer light connector... it works really good... and i used LED bolts to hold the plate on which also "light up" the plate... the cool thing is they are really bright and make it difficult to read my plate at night..... woo hoo

the video will show (youtube is slow) that they flash then when you put on the brakes they flash faster which really draws attention....

i will put up the video as soon as youtube quits screwin around......

Here is mine with just using a dremel tool. Funny to look at this picture, since the cans are now black, as are several other parts.

i just bent up some spare sheet metal and bolted it to those two little tabs on the back where the original fender was bolted to and used an led pod for a plate light, i would suggest gettin some kinda license plate frame to make it more rigid

I'm here for a good time, not a long time

I went with Motion Werkes

But apparently I paid too much! Now I see I could have done my own! Oh well. I really don't like the tiny size of the MW turn signals, I know that much.

The good side of this is that I was able to to end up with a PERFECT FIT/ANGLE of license plate bracket for my Aluma motorcycle trailer by using the bracket that came off my 919! Pretty cool. I was wondering how I was going to make or find a license plate bracket for a small plate, and my answer was right there in my garage! It's angled perfectly for the trailer fender. I installed it yesterday and it looks original. Next I'm going to see how the 919's stock license plate light will work on the trailer.

So, thanks to paying so much for the Motion Werkes fender eliminator ($127), I ended up with THREE things I needed for the price of ONE: fender eliminator AND trailer license plate bracket as well as a license plate light.

Well, that's my 2 cents worth on this topic.
