Rear Fender Eliminator

Anyone know where I can find a rear fender eliminator? I've already got ideas to replace the rear signals ( custom dynamics LED light strips). But still need somewhere for the plate. I was thinking about just cutting it off, but I'm worried about a jagged edge. Any ideas?

There is a kit sold by Besteem USA on Amazon and Youtube. You have to cut the original one yourself but they provide instructions. They also make a rear hugger.

Are you running anything right now or just have the stock setup?

I'm still stock. I was really going to do this mod until I started commuting and noticed how clean my clothes were due to the large fenders. I was also concerned about losing the large turn signals which may decrease visibility to cars following you.

I like the besteem one, but the small signals concern me. I'd like to see a video of them working to see how they look when flashing, but can't find one. This winter season is gunna be good for my bike! I'll post pics when I install it. I think I'd add the LED light strip turn signals too though.

Well, It should be here by the end of the week! I also too the time to lightly tint my brake light, and I think it looks sweet! I haven't ordered LED turn signals yet, since I want to see how the built in ones look before I do that. Will keep posted

She's done! I personally love it! I like how the tail light finishes off the rear and matches the color of the bike. I can't wait for summer so I can ride it and see if I get any dirtier, or not. I'd recommend this mod 100% only thing I'd change is the turn signals. they are a little small for my liking (can see that in the one picture with it illuminated amber)

actually no, it seems besteam figured out the perfect angle. I maxed out the suspension and the plate didn't come near touching the tire. I don't get any dirt on my back either

Check my mods in my gallery on my profile. let me know what y'all think I should do next!
