Clean up the SV

Hello all.
Looking at some things to clean up my SV
I'm saw a couple things on ebay I liked.
Fender eliminator by competition werkes, and LED flushmounts by watsen design.
Has anyone put these on their own bike?
How easy are they to install? and how well do they work and look?
Are they worth the price?
$145 for competion werkes F/E
$120 for Flushmounts
both prices include shipping.
Thanks for hte help!

Seems like a lot for that stuff. I have a Targa FE, it was $65 shipped and flushmounts that I have seen only run $30 each.

svrider.com always does a group deal on watsen's, $99 check there. You got to get like 6 people to buy em with you.

Don't get that sh*tty fender eliminator, get a hamicad fender eliminator. Just google hamicad. I have both of these items on my SV. Just look at my gallery.

If you have any questions about SV stuff, shoot me a pm. I have tried a bunch of stuff, so I know what to avoid and what to get.

What's wrong with the werkes F/E?? Looks good, and comes with flush turn signals.
Gallery looks nice, no close shots of tail of your SV tho.
Thanks for the tip too, I'll check out the svrider site.

I have the Hamicad on my SV. It's solid. You can use any signals you want with it, not just built-in ones. The Hotbodies one is also a favorite.

Werkes FE is not well made, the Hamicad is very stout. It's attachments for turn signals are in some from the license plate edge, so they hide back there if you get some short stalks. Looks great IMO.

I put the hotbodies kit on mine and thought it was pretty easy. The kit fit over the stock undertail (with some minor mods, cutting and such) and I still have the brackets that hold the fuses in the trunk.

Here's the Hotbodies undertail. This is probably what I would have gotten if I hadn't gotten the Hamicad:

Mine looks just like Trip's, except that I have the factory turn signals:

I like the hotbodies one, but it's a little spendy. I think i'm going to go with the werkes one on the 650, see how it looks and if I don't like it, I'll put something else on the 1000 when I get that.

I have the hot bodies, but you def need additional blinkers those little LED's are Sh**y. If you have a 2nd gen, you don't need a fender eliminator. Just a good hand with a dremmel, and two little 90 deg brackets (like a corner brace, but tiny) to mount the license plate bracket back on. When I mounted the Hot bodies, and realized how it was built and what I did, I hated myself for spending the money.
