Okay let me try this again. I'm having problems using my phone to load pictures on the forum. So I finally received the NRC fender eliminator today and got it installed on the bike. Now with that being said, for those that are deciding which ones to get, let me at least give you the low down on this product. It's definitely sleek, clean and beautiful. It definitely cleans up the rear real well. Turn signals are led, and so is the license plate light, but in cased in some type of hard plastic that's not clear yet when you turn on the signals it's pretty bright and noticeable still. Pretty easy to install, I just use the O.E connector plugs from the original fender and soldered them to the wires for the lights. Now here's the down fall of this product, no hardware to securely attach it on the bike. The ONLY thing holding it on the bike is two strips of double sided tape on top of the signal lights. It not heavy at all but just how strong, and how long would it last before it comes off? The bike vibrates enough from the rumble of the engine! And as far as price goes, I think it should've been sold for a lot less. Maybe, MAYBE closer to around 80-100 would be good not 130-140 dollars! This is just my opinion, hope this helps in deciding which ones to get. I do love the look, but not the price for it! Sorry I should've taken pictures of it off of the bike so you guys can see the double sided tape I was talking about

I got news that Motodynamic is currently doing R&D for their integrated tail lights. They are currently looking for someone around LA to do product testing and all that before they can mass produce for the release. Anyone keen ? Let me know!!

Motodynamics have made some nice integrated tailights, different from others. I love how the signals work.

Not a 899...


Some should be lucky if they are in LA ;)

I went with the NRC (New Rage Cycles) fender eliminator. The comment above mentions there is no hardware other than double sided tape that installs the bracket. This is not correct. There is a bolt that feeds up through the bottom of the subframe where the original routing of the signal wires and license plate light feed through. This bolt anchors to an oval shaped polycarbonate piece to really anchor it down. Pretty ingenious and simple install to tell you the truth.

I'm extremely pleased with the product itself. Integrates very well with the underside of the tail and the signals are very noticeable. The license plate bracket mounts up to the passenger peg location tight to the rear header. Clean look and similar to the one Competition Werkes version. I think this is the best fender eliminator out there when considering looks and value. The alternative I was considering was an integrated tail light and the Competition Werkes fender eliminator that mounts up close to the rear header. This would have run me almost double what the NRC eliminator cost.

Customer service at NRC is awesome... Justin was (and still continues to be) extremely helpful. I ended up ordering their mirror block off plate signals as well from NRC to get rid of the stock mirrors.

I'll post up some pics this weekend.

I will steer away from these. i tried to fit on my 848 and they just didn't work. It may have been me. Even having aftermarket rear turn signals put on by proper mechanic after the OEM ones perished, the 'blinking' was a bit weird.
I also think integrated can be a bit dangerous as left and right too close together and i would feel a bit safer with a more definitive signal direction.

Competition Werkes and MotoDynamic are both estimating around mid-April for the final release of their integrated taillight units now. We're waiting patiently with bikes sitting in our service department waiting for these to be installed......... patiently......... patiently......... ;)
