Thumbs up My home made fender eliminator

Here is my home made fender eliminator for the Speed Triple. I ended up completely removing the undertray to cut it. That was a BITCH! I cut the fender just as the instructions for the SkyKing FE recommend.

It just so happens that the holes for the license plate light are the exact same spacing as the holes for the license plate mount.


I cut down the factory license plate mount to my liking.


I then had to grind off part of the plate mount so that the cosmetic trim that surrounds the tail light will fit. I essentially ground it down to the width of the light housing.




I went to Lowe's and bought some galvanized decking brackets for the new signal mounts. I drilled a few holes in each to mount the signal stalk and I also cut them so that they would not protrude past the base of the signal stalk.



Here they are mounted to the underside of the undertray. I used some of the factory screws that I no longer needed.



Here you can see the 2 holes drilled for mounting the signals.



Signals installed.



Plate installed.



Finished product.







I think it turned out pretty well.

I have since painted the bare metal parts with a high temp black paint. I sprayed the parts and then baked them in the oven and they now have a nice hard finish on them.
