So I purchased the fender eliminator frmo Rage cycles.

I received it and unfortunately they forgot to include my load equilizer.. I called them and they shipped it out right away.. ( great customer service by the way)

I watched on Youtube one how to install it stopped me in my tracks..

It essentially leaves the back open for rain and all that other good road grime to spin up under there. SO I went on ebay and purchased another fender so I could cut it up a but so I can still have that plastic splash guard.

I want to keep all my stock parts incase I want to go back so cutting and splicing my original parts is not ideal.

I would aslo like to get the connectors so I I can make this more of a plug and play kit rather then splicing or cutting off the connectors on my original. Does anyone know the part numbers on those?

I also order the front clip on LED blinkers for the front and bought an extra set of front makers so I could cut the connectors off those but with the rear it can get very expensive quick the way I am doing it. Once I get everything I wlll take some detailed pictures of how and what I am doing and will share with everyone.

This was awesome! Thanks so much for posting this with the video. I think this fender eliminator will finish my bike!

I am like you. I have changed a lot of stuff on my street and have 3 boxes of all the stock parts including my handlebars, exhaust, seat, mirrors, etc...

Good tip about getting an extra fender to have the grim guard. I bet that will make the piece much sturdier as well. Please post your results after completion.

I think this will be a winter job for me.

No duel mode equalizer installed the lights didnt blink that fast... I would even consider not installing it.

Once I put the front LEDs on I needed the equalizer... but just one needed for the fronts and the rears. I mounted it under the tank..

Any trouble removing any of the bolts from the rear? I have two that wanted to strip even with my foot long breaker, so I have backed off of doing anything to the heinous tail we have.

Nope! No Problem at all! There was thread lock but... proper tools and a standard 3/4 socket wrench...

Size 6, my front two want to strip. Even tried "shocking" them loose. :-/ Looks like I'll have to ready myself for some drill and tap action in the future.

I heard nightmares but had no issues. I stand with the fender in between me and the bike so I am pulling into myself. I get less wobble on the allen heads that way.

( by freezing them I use Dr Scholls wart away ) I used that trick on hot summer days on my mustang and always worked.

FYI, just did my bike and the front two bolts DID strip. Had to drill them out. The back two loosened after hitting them with a hammer. Why they put Loctite on these I'll never know.
