Hey everyone, i wanted a simple fender eliminator kit, but all of them were wayy to expensive. So I decided to make my own. What do you think?






this is when i mounted the turn signals on top, next to the brake lights. I didnt like it after a while so I moved the signals to the arrow straps.

So how did you make it? I'm actually getting ready to do the same with an extra rear fender that I've happened across. Aiming to cut it down to size...

I like the stock brake setup with the reflector and little tail it has. I think it flows with the bike so I plan to hack off the stock plate holder and do a custom one as well.

Hey sorry it took a while for me to get back to you. I was with a friend and we fabricated 2 brackets out of light weight 6061 aluminum which took a bunch of tries to get right.

I am actually working on getting a kit ready that includes all the hardware, and the brackets (painted black) along with detail instructions and video of how to do the install. I dont want to go through all the effort if there is no interest. The price is set at $50 shipped. Pm me if your interested. If I can get atleast 10 people interested, then I am going to go forward with it.

Thank you.

The street triple is the easiest bike in the world to make a fender eliminator out of.

$5 worth of material at the hardware store and a little time is all it takes, you can even use the factory lights.





EDIT: yikes! had those pics for a year but never realized they were so blurry~~~

I will see if I can dig up pics of mine, but its really simple.

The tag bracket is just a piece of angle (steel or aluminum will work) that is drilled to accept the plate, and it mounts to the rear foot peg brackets. It locates the plate between the pipes going into the cans. The factory tag light was installed underneath the tail with a screw that goes into the " storage area" behind the battery. The turn signals are also attached to small pieces of angle that attach to the can brackets.

These are my current turn signal mounts. I went with these after removing the twin Arrows and going with a shorty exhaust. With the twin high mounts, I just added a small piece of angle going toward the rear of the bike that attached to the can bracket. The turn singnals bolted to the angle. Simple ,but no pics, and I dont plan to dig the Arrows out of the box for pics.



EDIT: you can see my temporary tag light in the above pic...the stock light works, but I had mine boxed up with some other stuff and was too lazy to dig it out at the time...

I need to make one myself. Have an old comp tower case that is just the right width for the tag. Looks like you have yours way up underneath Dave, thinking mine will be right below the tail light assy. No speed cameras around here to hide from, for now, heh.
