Hotbodies TAG Fender Eliminator Kit Honda CBR250R 2011-2013
This kit really cleans up the rear look.
I really like the look that this fender eliminator kit gives the bike. It doesn't have a bulky look anymore. I watched the video that was on the site and decided to give it a shot. Big hands can be a downer as it's a pretty tight place to work on the tali of the bike. The finish of the plastic parts id really nice. Only request I would have is that the plastic piece the turn signals mount on could use a bit more of reinforcement to take the lights bouncing with road bumps. Mine has some cracks but still works great. Just like on of the rating questions asked, this product is the best bang for you buck. Thanks.

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.

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.

Good but needs improvements
I purchased this Fender Eliminator Kit to improve the appearance of my bike. It did make it look better, but the product is pretty cheap and flimsy. The piece which holds the rear tail lights together does not work well. The product itself does not fit the bike as well as it should.
I would not purchase this product again. It's better to get a better product at a slightly higher price, than to get this.
My rear tail lights wobble as though they are about to fall even though I installed them properly.

Installation was a little time consuming, but the finished product is solid. Definitely cleans up the look of the tail end.

Streamlined look of the bike, challenging install
This fender eliminator kit for the Honda CBR250R is a good value and definitely improves the look of the bike. It seems sturdy and the plastic appears as though it will hold up over time. Overall, I am satisfied with the product. For me (a newbie), it was challenging to install, however. It required a lot of dismantling, and several steps. Not all steps were described well in the instructions. I found it helpful to refer to installation videos on youtube. It took a few hours to install, but I am happy with the result.
