a motorcycle is not an enclosed vehicle so if you commute or ride in all weather chances are you are getting sprayed from the heavens or the truck infront of you so whats it matter if the rear is kicking up the same crap?You will get spray (dirt, rain, etc) from removing the fender. Not terrible, but be ready for it. Yesterday the roads were wet and I had dirt on the back of my helmet and jacket. Not to mention the license plate and tail light.
So if you commute or ride in all weather, probably not worth it.
Exactly. You are bringing the stock turn signals in a bit more. ON some, like the Vagabond, which I have, you're removing the rubber grommet thing which cuts down on the length of the turn signal stem, and hence, in a bit more. Also, the stock turn signals are orange and reflective but incandecent, which you might replace with white led turn signals which can be brighter or less noticeable depending on time of day, situation, etc.I'd say less visibility could be a potential con. You remove some reflectors that are attached to the OEM fender when installing a FE
Good point. The bike I was riding with had a stock fender and he had no dirt spray on him. Still got wet but not dirty.a motorcycle is not an enclosed vehicle so if you commute or ride in all weather chances are you are getting sprayed from the heavens or the truck infront of you so whats it matter if the rear is kicking up the same crap?
to the OP there are no viable cons to a fender eliminator... unless looking too sexy is a con
I'm on the same boat! The con of the FE is waiting so long. Lol. I cant stand the plump size orange blinkers. I need them off my bike ASAP! Hurry TST! There's another option from Targa out as well that looks pretty good just no angle adjustment. I had a targa FE on my Grom and the quality was very good for a simple design.The stock fender looks like absolute **** and the fat ugly stock turn signals vibrate and bounce stupidly. I've been waiting to get a TST fender eliminator but its taking forever and its going to cost more than the vagabond one so I might just get the vagabond. I'm sick of having a giant piece of stretched out laffy taffy on the back of my bike, lol. Going to put on the FE and then swap in some aftermarket signals too.
