Werkes Fender Eliminator

So the stock rear turn signal / license plate holder has been bugging me big time. Time to change that!

Wanted to share a few pics and see what everyone thinks. I like it except the license plate is pretty darn close to that rear fender, i hopped up and down as hard as i could and could only get it to hit once and that was with someone else on it too. Will probably adjust the shock a tad to make it a bit less travel. i never ride anyone else. (im 5' 10" 180 lbs)

Looks great! I have the same setup and I never had a problem with plate hitting the hugger. Even with a passenger!

How much does it show when you're sitting on the bike? My only reservation with that setup is it might be too hard to see.

Very nice! I have the same set up minus the rear hugger as license plates over here are a lot bigger than in the US. One thing though, lose those nasty frame stickers.

The kit comes with lights, brackets, and 2-sided tape to mount everything. You won't use the stock lights.

You'll be bummed to discover that when you hit a big enough bump the plate scrapes the hugger.

Who needs a hugger?

I have a suggestion that might help. Go to any automotive store and buy the door guard, the vinyl strips that fit along the edge of the car door. Just cut a piece to fit along the lower edge of the plate and stick it on. It's only about five dollars, but it will prevent the sharp edge of the plate from gouging into your hugger if it does happen to scrape
