I got a Competition Werkes Fender Eliminator kit for my EX500 bike today in the mail.

The instructions were a little sparse (one sheet that says things like 1. remove seat, 2 remove rear fender ) etc.

Before I start this project, are there any "tips" from members that have installed the kit already ?

Also, has anyone painted the fender eliminator or is it recommended to leave it the original "metal" finish.

Thanks for you help in advance....

Just pay attention to what screws/bolts went where, and make sure you plug the turn signals back in correctly.

the metal box is galvanized so it won't rust, and its basically hidden from view.

Well, it's done ! I installed the competition werkes fender eliminator today. I posted some pictures in the user gallery page, under Gman.

I'm happy with the look without the fender. The bike looks more like a sport bike now. With the fender it looked too tame.

I must be slow because it took me about an hour and a half to install it today. I saved the fender in case I sell the bike. Here's the bike before the fender removed




here's a phot after removing the fender looks much better now !

I made mine out of some old 2x4 brackets I had lying around. cheaper, as in free, but it doesnt have the factory finished look.
