Fender Eliminator Installed

Just received my fender eliminator by Vagabond Motorsports today and installed it. The process was very easy and the finished product looks fantastic; would highly recommend to anyone, plus they have a great instructional video on how to install it on their youtube channel.

Put the same kit on my bike last week. Just as good as any other brand if not better!

Would you guys mind throwing some pictures up so we can see what they look like? I know I can go online and find photos but it's always nice to see "real life" photos if you know what I mean

Put the Yoshi eliminator on a while back... It looks nice, but it's a pain in the ass to swap the plate once it's on. The license plate frame/border is part of the structure of the kit, and is required to keep it bolted to the bike. I like it, but if you don't - this isn't the kit for you. Photo below.

Looks nice 👍. I was thinking about buying a motorized hide plate gadget or making my own, but I don't think making one would look very professional.

You could always just go with the manual flip brackets? Just a simple lean back and stretch your hand to put it down or lift it up after? I think the motorized one may look slightly bulky under there no?

I made one years ago that was just on a spring loaded hinge and I ran a fishing line to the front so I can pull it. It worked good but what i didn't like is that it moves a lot at high speeds and I didn't want a cop to see it move since it could be trouble.

Hide plate gadget I was looking at thats electric isn't big, its the same size as the USA motorcycle license plate 7x4 and its only about 1 inch thick it by trydeal www.TRYDEAL.com
