RG Racing Fender Eliminator Kawasaki Ninja 650R / ER6n 2013-2014
Great product, but be ready to pay the price.
I bought this item back in June of this year. Knowing that the first thing I was going to replace on my new ninja 650 would be the ugly fender that came with it. The R&G fender eliminator is excellent quality, durability, and finish. But all the comes at a price I do think this item is a little exepesive for just a plate holder, light, and some wiring. Other than the price this is a great product for your bike.

Product very well made!!!
Installation was a breeze and fit and finish are excellent. Very sturdy after install and does what it's intended to do very well. One tip as others have mentioned, if using the factory turn signal lights use a spoon to push the rubber into the new bracket. I even sprayed a little rubbing alcohol onto the rubber as I was installing them which acted as a temporary lubricant.

Looks great, not that easy to install.
I chose this fender eliminator kit because it seemed easier to install than competing products and didn't involve wire modification on my 2013 Ninja 650. The instructions were OK to follow but not great. I don't usually do much handywoman work but eventually figured it out. I also spent a lot of time trying to figure out what part the pictures were of. It took about 3 hours to install and now the bike looks much cooler than before.
- get someone strong to remove the original screws and unclip the wires under the seat
- make note of where all screws came from
- test lights before attaching (the license plate illuminator wires had to go red to black)
- use a spoon or screwdriver to put blinkers into new housing
- use a skewer to stuff wires into shrink wrap
- shrink shrink wrap with a hairdryer
- you won't use all of the pieces provided

Good for the price
This kit is pretty nice. It looks great on my 14 ninja 650, and was fairly easy to put on. The hardest part of putting it on is getting the factory turn signals in the fender eliminator kit. Other than that, it wasn't too difficult.

looks good, and keeps the factory signals
was fairly easy to install, the instructions could be a little bigger, but otherwise it's great product, especially if you want to keep your factory turn signals!

I installed myself!
Although the directions it came with were awful and didn't help at all, the install was relatively easy after watching a How to video on Youtube.

A little pricy but love the fact that it uses the stock turn signals only issue was that the light was broken when opennibg the product and had to go though another company to get it replaced but was replaced with no questions asked

It's a breeze to install... ***NO CUTTING REQUIRED***
2014 Ninja 650 ABS
Total Install Time:
~60 minutes (most time was taken to insert OEM blinkers into new R&G mount). I'm also very meticulous while installing things.
Ease of Install:
I could not believe how easy this eliminator was to install. Best of all? There was absolutely ZERO messing with wires. No cutting. No splicing. Just plug it in and it works.
-brings blinkers up higher (better visibility)
-reduces weight of the tail
-I cannot recommend this product highly enough
-Splashes tar and other debris onto my taillight (was expected, however)
Tips and Tricks:
-Use a spoon-- just try it-- to help feed the OEM blinkers into their new home on the R&G mount. The rounded edges of the spoon really help to push the rubber into the mount. This took me around 15 minutes to do.
-Make sure you shrink wrap the cables leading from the LED license plate light. Snug up the shrink wrap up to the LED assembly once it's bolted on and then shrink wrap it. I used a lighter. Remember to use long back and forth motions over the entire shrink tubing and be careful not to burn the wires.
-Make sure you keep careful track of your screws and, in my honest opinion, rebuild the fender once you've taken out the necessary parts as to not lose anything.
-Put together/place all the parts on the R&G mount before placing on your bike.
-Remember to replace the rubber shroud that covers all your connectors under the seat.
-Don't forget to the put the R&G license plate light deflector on. It's extremely important and I glued it on over the LED assembly.
-Blinkers are easy to match up. Grey plug to grey receptacle, black plug to black receptacle, and the LED to the only receptacle left.
-There will be wire ports that are not used under your seat. Don't worry about it, since that's how your bike comes from the factory.
-Make sure you keep the left blinker on the left side and the right blinker on the right side.
-Test your blinkers before you tighten everything down! That means test left, test right, test emergency flashers, and make sure the LED license plate is lighting up.
