Fender Eliminator

Installed a fender eliminator from Vagabond Motorsports. Really slick install kit. Requires no electrical splicing and re-uses some of your old hardware. Looks fantastic.

I saw the Youtube review of the Vagabond kit - it looks like really nice quality. I went with Yoshimura because it looks like it holds the plate a little more vertical. Either way the stock fender looks like $#@! and they're both an improvement.

No rain today!? I like the look too, I'm just afraid of the splash protection under rain, as some others have mentioned with "short" fender eliminators.I don't typically ride under rain, but I sometimes can't avoid when you leave for a few days ride..

Rain? What about puddles? LOL. It doesn't take much water to get your back sprayed without the fender.

I have the vagabond as well.... you can make a small extender by cutting up the stock fender and bolting it on..takes about 5 mins and will keep your back dry.

I've got the same on my bike. Very nice unit. The youtube video they made was super helpful.

Had a rainy morning yesterday and can verify the tail tidy does nothing to keep your back and crack dry. Sure looks nice though.

Yep. I live on a dirt road and after every ride there is a bunch of gravel all over the passenger seat.
