In California you are required to have a reflector at your bikes back end. I just installed the yoshimura fender eliminator and then I unbolted the stock reflector (the rectangular one) from the stock fender. There's a small plastic post on the back side near the screw that can be easily shaved off with a utility knife. Cut it off so the reflector will lay flat against the yoshimura frame. Drill a hole at the base of the yoshimura frame in the middle slightly larger than the mounting screw. Mount the reflector using the stock nut. I also used blue thread lock. It does cover the yoshimura logo but now the cops won't bug you and it looks clean. I'm pretty anal about my stuff. I recently got ticketed in Huntington beach for not having this on another of my bikes. Who knew. But cops are picky down there.
