Fender Eliminator Fab Question

After having the bike apart the last few weeks, I thought quite a bit about fabricating a little plate bracket to get rid of the fender.

My only question is that there seems to be a small (maybe 1/8 inch) gap between the undertail plastic and the taillight. The gap is still there with the fender installed, but by eliminating the fender, I'm afraid the rear tire will throw a bunch of water up under the seat if I am riding in the rain.

Anybody address this issue or am I just missing a gasket?

Press Any Key To Continue.

You need to trim the Fender off and keep the part that goes under the rear plastics. With out it your plastics will flop around. With some creative trimming you won't even notice it!

I suppose I could take some parts off and get you all a picture! Not like I'm riding it in the snow or anything.

This is not the greatest picture in the world to prove my point but it plus a description might help you. I took apart my tail section, removed my fender, bought a cheap $30 aluminum universal fender eliminator from Cycle Gear. I bolted the aluminum bracket onto the back of the plastic tray so that I could move it up enough to cover the gap you're talking about, and presto it's all good. Plus the plate still sticks out enough to prevent some to the spray.

Now you may be wanting your plate way up under the tail like the squids do, in that case this won't help you.

I know mine isn't the 919 but I picked up something similar to what Cajun did from ebay a few weeks ago for my RC...It replaces the back half of the standard fender and relocates the tail light futher into the tail section but is still plenty visible and turned out really good. It also gives you the option of mounting rear turn signals which I decided to do instead on integrating them...Cost was $50...Check them out here

Here's some pics. I guess it didn't cover up the gap as much as I thought it did but I've ridden in the rain and I have not gotten water up in the under tray so I guess it's all good.

I did!

No not really, I just pulled down the tray moved computer out of the way bolted up the bracket put a little foam rubber between the computer and bolts so they wouldn't rub into it and bolted it back together.

I went the route of carving up the original fender using the stock signals, and plate brackets. It might not be "professional" looking, but it sure was cheap.

I stumbled across this fender eliminator kit when looking at the jardine website. It's reasonable priced but is intended to use the OEM tail lights. I'm sure that you could install LED lights with ease.

Here is how I did mine.

I reused the metal from the left and right fender A reflectors and bolted them to the tabs on fender b. Total cost for this mod. $0.00 dollars. I'm leaving the gap up there open so if it does get wet it can drain and dry out.
