Mudflap-ectomy....completed.

I like the tag where it sits with the trellis frame, but I didn't like the mudflap that was attached to it, so I removed the flap. took about 20 minutes to do. the flap is held onto the trellis frame with three allen bolts.


hint for those that do this. use RTV on the nuts to hold them in place on the backside of the plate holder since there are preformed nutwells (is that a word?) that way the next time you have to remove the plate for any reason the nuts should stay in place on the plate holder.

Here are a couple pics:








I also took the flapper butterfly off the valve on the exhaust. it still operates it just has no butterfly so no codes. *word of caution for those that do this* have a grinder, as the screws are spot welded onto the butterfly.

gutting the cat will not be easy, as it is one big cat that sits right before the split, and the two mufflers are in a once piece assembly. I think with some time this exhaust could be cored as well, but it'll take a little more engineering than the 1198's exhaust since it is a one piece assembly.

I wonder if the plate would look better with a custom bracket coming off the tail? I agree tho, the mudflap fad to go. If the plate was relocated it would complete the transformation in my opinion.

Ducati makes a side mount holder that looks much better IMO-

Here's a link to the diavel forum with pictures of it.. looks like install is a 3 hour job requiring gas tank removal to re-route the wiring.

Now, that's what I'd call r*tarded! It screams HD IMHO.
Can't anyone with the US size plate place it between the tail lights and mount it on the pass. handle where the reflector is and get it over with? It won't even need lic. plate light since the lights are on at all time!
Maybe use a flip down hinge so you can get to the key hole.........?

To each his own.. that yellow billboard doesn't do the alternative any justice. I think a US plated bike would look much better than the stock hazard placard dangling behind the rear tire.

I guess they don't have much of a place to hide that highway sign, if you could run it on a slip roll a couple of times it would make a heck of a hugger for that 240....
