    Replaced the whole ugly piece of crap with a Metisse eliminator. This was 3 years ago now and I'd still do the exact same mod.

          Where would I find one of those, because I am not a fan of the flap.

              Get rid of it!!!!

              A little bird told me that Mr. Braada Jim would soon have a fender eliminator / undertail kit out soon for the kats.....

              Was that little bird wrong?!?!?!



              Another thing you could do is cut off the flab with a dremel, hacksaw, really sharp blade, whatever, and then get a Creese bracket, and that will mount your plate and blinkers to your bike...

              That is until Jim gets the undertails out

                        that little birdie is right...some dude named braada jim is secretly working on it.


                        you can also have a certain KR member make you a bracket and send it to you, so you can save even more money !

                          Well I just got a little rotozip thing from a friend that would easily tear right through it. I may do that anyway. I wonder if some certain KR member could PM me with a price.

                            Dagger, take it slow with those, using a cutting disc, and also, after all is said and done, you'll prolly have to sand it down a bit to get a nice smooth finish.

                            And wear eye protection, unless you like hot plastics pieces flying in your eye

                            Still a easy project though!

                            PM Special K about the Creese Bracket, not sure if he has gotten them in yet or not.

                              Scrapped it! I replaced it with a fender elim kit from Competition Werkes.


                              But also had it on there for three years because I didnt know any better
