Antihero, I've got a question. When you installed the fender eliminator did you have to cut or splice the factory wiring? I really like that setup but I'm trying for mods that don't void the warranty or potentially tear up the bike.
You're not going to hurt anything by cutting the wires. The thing is that none of the kits out there are plug and play - they all require the ends of the stock wires. While you can remove the stock fender without cutting anything, you pretty much can't install any of the aftermarket kits without cutting and splicing your stock wires.
If you are worried about it, buy a stock fender/taillight assembly from EBay - they're up there all the time for cheap.
