Rear fender eliminator

I bought this fender eliminator bracket on ebay and what seems like a simple job took me 2 hours to almost finish but it got dark and the lights in my garage aren't the best. Honda hides a lot of screws in this little area and taking it apart without breaking anything was the biggest hurdle


It is a very sturdy bracket and it holds the turn signals nicely but I am going to take it apart tomorrow again to see if I can hide the wires better. I still have to mount the license plate light and I plan to use the OE light that came with the bike but I have to drill the bracket because the predrilled hole is meant for a small led light they sell separately. I might drill 2 more holes in the bracket so I have 4 mounting point instead of only 2. I will see tomorrow when I get home from work.


I will post pictures tomorrow in the day light, my phone wouldn't take a picture I could see because of the lighting in my garage.

I'm curious to know what it looks like without the huge factory fender. Got any pics without it on?

I've got a targa eliminator on my bike currently. Will post pics once the bike is back from repairs.

Agree with op about removing the fender. You have to practically take apart the whole rear of the bike to even get at it.

I finished and then finished the 2nd time. I made a video of the pictures I took along the way. It seems there are differences between the 250 and 300 when comparing my bike to the DIY link I followed for taking it apart. I had to drill and cut the bracket a little because I didn't have directions for the one I bought on ebay. I still want to do something about being able to see the wires from underneath, I put the reflector in place just for now to obstruct anyone from seeing underneath from behind.

Beauty, looks much better now! You think it still offers enough coverage to keep you from getting splayed in moist conditions?

I think it has enough coverage to keep the spray off the rider but the tail light might get a little more dirty than usual. I really try not to ride in conditions that there would be water coming off the wheels if I can help it. I don't own any rain gear and don't want any so I take the wagon if the is a good chance of rain before I can get home if I have to go somewhere.

Here's a quick shot of the targa eliminator I took last night. I'm running the option without mounts for turn signals with an integrated taillight. The plastic piece mounts with a bolt and is not a perfect fit, but it seems like it could possibly be bent with a heat gun or something of the sort. Will take more photos later.
