This is another good one. This one seems like a better build but it's probably more expensive too.

That's the one I bought. Not installed yet; it's been cold and rainy here all week and my garage isn't heated.

The Graves one is $94.64 and the Vagabond Motorsports one is $69.99 shipped. I think R3 Forms members get a $5 discount....

I bought the Vagabond and it's a quality product, everything fit nice and tight. I wanted the license plate light because why give the cops 1 more reason to bug you?

The Graves fender eliminator doesn't have a license plate light. Isn't a light reguired by law?
Better to assume it's required if you can't find out for certain. In Nebraska, you don't even have to have turn signals and there is no mention of needing a license plate light. However, why tempt fate?

I love the guys at STG but, I'm going to get the eliminator that reuses the plate light.

And… Installed! I like to take my time. I only ran into two hitches. I needed to be more careful aligning each lock washer and I needed to label which side each turn signal belongs on. With my luck I'd put them on backwards!
Looks great!

At least you had the weather to install it.

It's 34F here right now at 4 p.m. and there is 1" of hail on the ground (north part of town got 6" of hail yesterday and another 6" today).

My garage isn't heated and it feels like 30F out there.

Install mine soon......hopefully

Looks good. Still waiting for my eliminator.

I ordered a Vegabond FE yesterday.
Any tips on installation that the video and printed instructions do not cover?
Installation looks SUPER easy, but the FE I installed on my Ninja 250 looked easy to install too but it turned out to be a major PITA!

The Graves FE looks fantastic too, but I decided to go with a FE that retained the tag light.

It really is as easy as they say it is and the video is spot on. Also, you get an instruction sheet with the FE.

Mine took a little longer than in the video because I added aftermarket LED signals and had to do a little soldering, but it was still very easy.
