TL1000R

Fender Eliminator

 
 

 
     

The TL stock has this big horrible looking mud flap on the rear that provides mounting for the stock turn signals and license plate. Funny thing, I never really noticed the big ugly mud flap until I saw how nice other bikes looked without them. The solution to the big nasty fender is a fender eliminator or under tail. There are many different versions of under tails or fender eliminators and all are over $100. I really don't like the popular under tails out there on the market and most require modification to fit right anyway -so I decided to just hack away at my stock parts.

Cat eye signals can be found at the LuckyBike Ebay Store
