Hey guys,

Just thought I'd share my $10 home depot fender eliminator:smile

Its quick and easy and you basically use a bracket from the original fender so it looks half way decent. All you need is a piece of angle aluminum 2" x 2" unfortunately i could only buy it in a 4' length or this would have been less than $10 to make. Anyway basically you will cut the aluminum to about 2 3/4" piece and drill 4 holes in it, thats it. Sorry for the crude directions hopefully you can figure it out from the pics. All Bolts were from the original fender assembly. I know its not the best but its very simple and does the job.




Black Bracket from factory fender


cut piece of aluminum (you'll need to drill 4 holes)


another shot of the aluminum bracket


after the bracket was bolted on I just used a set of pliars to bend out the angel slightly so your plate is not straight up and down at a 90 degree angle


Like I said its not super fancy but does the job for $10. Oh one last thing...after i took the factory fender off I just wrapped the wire for the plate light with electrical tape to prevent any type of short and tucked it back up through the whole in the undertail bracket.

Just picked up my bike from the dealer yesterday and that's the first thing I said I was going to do (get rid of that stock fender) Anyway thanks for the good idea, I'm going to try it out.

I just pulled the bulb and wrapped the connector with electrical tape and pushed it back up behind the tail light. If you look at the 3rd and 4th pics you can see half the connector wrapped in tape behind the aluminum bracket. The LED break/tail light is bright enough to illuminate the plate. Im sure if you wanted to take the time you could trace that wire and just pull it back completely. This way was just quick and easy.

I did the same thing you did too. i used the back set of studs and chopped the ones closer to the end of the tail off to tuck the plate a bit more under the tail. Also i put in a set of short stock tail lights too cuz those rubber stock ones were just ridiculous looking.
