Hotbodies TAG Fender Eliminator Kit Honda CBR250R 2011-2013
You get what you payfor
Cheap plastic and doesn't fit perfect. For how cheap it is its not bad but if you have the extra cash i would probably shoot for the Yoshimura over the hot bodies

Good alternative for the yoshimura FE
Build quality wasn't perfect. There is a small gap at the very rear of the FE that bugs me, but not so much that I've taken it back off.
From what I've heard, the turn signal bracket is extremely flimsy. I don't use it, so it doesn't bother me. If for some reason that's a dealbreaker for you, go spend 5 bucks at lowes and fabricate one rather than spending more on the yoshimura.
Its not an AMAZING FE. But it does the job, and does it well enough.

Good, but you get what you pay for.
I bought this product knowing that it was not going to be the best on the market. After reading and watching a lot of reviews on this product I decided that it would meet my needs. For the Honda CBR250R, there was a lot of people complaining that the bracket to hold turn signal was flimsy. This was accurate, however since I have an integrated taillight/turn signal the bracket was not needed. The rest of the kit seems okay, its plastic, but it seems durable. Another annoyance is that you have to remove the whole kit to replace the license plate. I solved this by drilling holes in the hot bodies to mount the OEM bracket. Overall I like this kit, for the look I was going for this kit was right on the money.

Very cheaply made
I bought this for my CBR250R, and I really wish I had gone for a higher quality kit. First off, this kit didn't even contain the bracket necessary to mount the plate light. Also, the "spacers" they give you are too large to mount the stock tail lights, but thankfully I had some washers laying around that I could use. Lastly, the unit entirely covers the back of the license plate, so you have to unmount the whole assembly to ever swap out a plate. Also, the new mounting for the blinkers is directly over the real wheel and doesn't properly seal the light housing, so now there is water inside my blinkers. Overall the plastic feels cheap and flimsy, and the included instructions are pretty bad. Whole steps missings. There's no way I can recommend this kit.

Great product and easy to Install.
Took me 2-3 min to install, worst part about any of it is taking parts off the bike and then re-assembling it. Easy product looks great, and blends well with the shape of the bike.

Buy something else
This is currently mounted on my L3 GSXR 750. I read several negative reviews before purchasing this item, most people complained about it being very fragile and not fitting quite right. I purchased it anyway, I thought I would make sure to be careful when installing and aligning all holes and drilling new or adjusting as needed. Two sets of holes did not align properly but because everything was so flimsy I decided to not drill any new holes. The wiring for the single tiny LED is ridiculously small and you have to cut trough the sheath of the OEM wiring to be able to connect it. I did what I had to do, the LED worked for a couple of days now it doesn't any more. At the end of the install there was a crack on the fender eliminator, I had been careful and don't even know how it occurred. In summary, try anything else, I'm sure you will fare better.

got it for a 2013 ninja 1000 and it came with no instructions but it wasn't that hard to figure out. The license plate bracket is plastic but it seems like it should hold up. The LED light above the plate is very low quality and I'm unsure of its durability.

First is maid out of cheap plastica little bit hard to install had to take of a plastic spacer because bolts were not long enough and also the angle for two of the bolts was kind of hard to screw in.
