I had the same question, and after researching, I believe it's the Yellow Duc eliminator.

Riding in HK is great. I can ride all year around. We have enough mountain roads, long stretch of highways and not enough traffic police.

Hey>>>absolutey great look...congrats..
Question...why your tire looks so fat compared with mine or others? Is it my view or I'm nuts?
And another one...is that all full system, it looks so clean? I'm just asking because if I see my picks it leaves the impression that the main pipes start to get rusty AT the weldings but they don't...it changes color from the heat but I don"t like the look>>I tried all kinds of polish products but can't get rid of it...any advice...anybody??

Marlon,

His tire appears to be a 190/55 (same tire as on the 2010 1198S, which is the rim he has installed)

His exhaust looks so "clean" because it is ceramic coated in black. Ceramic coating conseals heat inside the pipes, helping to improve performance, plus looks IMO. Hopes this helps.

Took me a while to post this up here. Didn't like the option available (cost and quality) so I set out to make my own. Luckily I had access to CAD, and a friend with access to a machine shop. This is what I came up with.

Eliminator Kit is made by Yellow Duc andyou should be able to get www.motowheels.com to special order you one. Don't pay the extra 20 dollars for the signal mounts if you are relocating the signals in your vents.

Reasons to spend 150 dollars on this over any other...

1. It's solid as steel.

2. Doesn't wiggle, come loose, or make a single sound of vibration when the bike is running.

3. Machined aluminum so it's very strong.

4. Black anodized to aid in its invisible aesthetic and clean finish.

5. Location cleans up undertail better than most.

6. Adjustment is easy and once its done you don't have to mess with it ever again.

7. Hardware is all stainless steel, high quality.

8. Uses stock plate light.

9. It's a very nice design.

See this video I made of the signals.



They're Watsen design signals for the Sport Classic. Their website shows them in detail. Here's some pics of the install.

Wallers right about the tire except I replaced the stock with a different tire than the '09-'10 1198/s tires which are the Supercorsa SC2. This rear is an SC3, but you are correct about the tire size. The SC3 is a little harder compound and requires a bit more warm-up when you are going to push it. I like it because I tend to go through tires very quickly. The 1198 and 1198s all come with the same Diablo Supercorsa SC2 190/55 R17 rears.

Here's a link to my bike thread with quite a bit more info including the ceramic coating which I highly recommend to anyone doing any kind of non titanium exhaust:

Whoops! I guess I should have been more specific and said same SIZE tire.

Luke the bike is sick!

I have the same fender eliminator, the yellow duc eliminator that is.

What I did is tap the two holes in the bracket (easy to do because it's aluminum) and put an M6 set screw to hold it.

So, you slip it on (it is a tight fit btw) and position it where you want then screw down the set screw with some loctite and presto!

Or, you can drill a hole in you under seat and secure it that way.
