Competition Werkes Fender Eliminator Kit Triumph Daytona 675/R 2013
Good looking fender eliminator
Bang for the Buck: Is this worth $125.95? Consider this: It comes with the majority of the items needed for a clean install (minus the solder, soldering iron and heat shrink tube). The rest of the items are things that you should have in your tool box. So for the items provided it easily bumps the price up. For the looks of the item itself I would say the price is good. However, for the fitment of the item itself... Definitely not.
Ease of Install: Anyone with even a minimal amount of mechanical knowledge can install this. You just need to be able to cut and splice wires and turn a ratchet. I marked this down because of the lack of the connectors that are needed to install the rear plate light. I cut off my stock connectors and soldered those on since I won't be going back to the OEM plate light, but didn't want to cut my actual OEM harness.
Performance: It does what it's supposed to do. It eliminated the huge, ugly OEM fender/plate holder. Good-bye dagger!
Finish: While the CW fender eliminator itself looks good, the actual fitment of it is terrible. You can shake the entire assembly around and it bulges in weird spots, and is entirely waaaaay too tight in others.
Durability: My turn signals burned out within 2 weeks. Luckily you can replace the bulbs with something of better quality or, as I'm told, send them back to CW for warranty... I opted to replace the turn signals with the Rizoma Track 77 LED signals. They are a much more perfect fit and will last quite a while.

Fairly solid kit, some what poor fitment and finish
Just put this on my 2013 Daytona 675... Since there are really only a few options for a fender eliminator on the 2013/2014's body style, I went with this because it looked the most minimal, while appeared to have a nice finish with the brushed stainless mount. I also liked how you can remove the turn signal mounts entirely, should an integrated tail light ever come out for this bike.
The kit goes on easily for the most part, there are a few bolts to un-do and that is pretty much it. However, it is definitely not plug and play as the kit requires use of the stock wire harness. To attach the signals and light, you will either need to butcher your stock turn signal/license plate connectors, splice into the harness, or buy/fabricate new connectors on your own.
Another gripe was that the fitment of the stainless bracket is really really poor. Using the rubber mount from stock tail and the provided spacer, there is a 3-4 mm gap around the most tail-ward part of the bracket. Then on the front-ward most part, the piece seems to fit so tight that it makes me worry there will be scratches to the body work paint if I ever take it off.
Complaints aside, it looks pretty sharp from a distance, is a lot cleaner than stock, and is probably a bit smaller than some other kits.

Nice stainless finish. Good quality.
The item is just as described. Very nice and pictured manual. You can decide if use turn signals or not. The brackets of it ain't mandatory. It comes with all hardware needed. Stainless screws, washers and nuts.

Clean looking fender eliminator
Makes the tail look soo much cleaner. I really like the way that it is designed.
