Hotbodies TAG Fender Eliminator Kit Kawasaki Ninja 1000 2012-2013
Good product, poorly advertised
The product doesn't look like in the picture. It's much more basic in form and lacks a high quality feel.

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, 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.

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.

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.

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.

Get what you pay for!!! Literally!
So I wanted a "fender eliminator" for my bike but didn't want to pay the steep price so I went with this and let me say its just "ok". It is very cheaply made ( just thin plastic). It comes with ABSOLUTELY zero instructions and honestly not that much comes in this kit. I ended up making it work on my bike and it looks alright cosmetically but I am very worried that when I am riding, its going to crack, break, fall off, etc… Its just a little this piece of plastic that is quite flexible and it has a built in LED license plate light that literally only shows the middle of your plate. If your good with this kind of stuff (can make it work) and don't want to spend more on the better kits, then go ahead and try it for $45 but just be cautious if your looking for quality and durability. Hope this helped.
