Since now that I got my first new bike, it's the first one with the gawd awfull stock rear fender (first pics below). So, in less than an hour, I bent, cut, welded, and painted up my own fender eliminator. Since the blinkers didn't need to be relocated, it really wasn't difficult. Sorry if it's a bit ugly, but you can't really see it without getting down and looking and it's functional.

Existing bolt holes where the stock fender mounted. The undertail area is all enclosed as if suzuki was doing the common mods for us, therefore, not wanting to drill or cut the new bodywork, it was the most logical place.

Very nice.. :cool:

I don't understand why they have to keep putting f'n mudflaps on sport bikes. Do that many people really ride them in the rain? :bash:

I've got mine on order, not trying to decide on exhaust. :cheers:

Yeah most of the manufacture have smarten up a bit and made the flaps removable instead of having to cut them!!

You know, he's always been a big cat, but now he's at the age where all he want to do, is hang in the garage (like me) and eat and sleep on the vette. So if I don't regulate the food, who knows how big he'll get. He does chase dogs of most sizes off the property, though :bash: . THAT"S FUNNY TO SEE!
