Yoshimura Fender Eliminator Kit Kawasaki Ninja 1000 / Z1000 2010-2013
Good product, tricky install
Good product - well put together and designed well. Paint/coating on it was very nice, and the LED light bar for the plate illumination is very good.
The instructions were a bit lacking, and for an already tricky install (not Yoshimura's fault) better instructions would have been nice.
All in all, a great product - I was able to install it with SW Motech top case brackets by installing it on the top of the top case U bracket that would normally mount to the top of the stock under tail, for the bottom support system. Its only held on with the two bolts and its rock solid. I have an integrated tail light so I did not need to install the turn indicators - they would not have cleared the top case brackets.

Quality is Superb!
Very easy to install, excellent quality and looks more tucked in that other brands I have seen. Love the License plate LED. I had this kit on my bike in no time. Package was delivered in the afternoon, started to pre-assemble the kit in my dining room while looking at the instructions just to get a feel what was up ahead and ended up installing it on the bike while still wearing my work clothes (shirt and tie), changed clothes and came back to do the soldering of the two wires for the LED light (I did not use the crimp connectors included with the kit, personal choice) and I was done!

looks good, easy install
Got this for my 2013 Ninja 1000, i already had the r77 exhaust so i figured i might as well keep the theme going and get the yoshi fender eliminator. The kit has everything you need to do the job, except decent instructions, but its pretty easy to figure out and plus theres always youtube.

While the directions could use some work, the finished product looks great. One tip to note - don't tighten up anything until you gt everything mounted and all wires run!

Looks great and functions well but install can be fiddly
The kit was complete, no missing parts. The brackets holding the stock turn signals mounted together with the license plate holder and could be annoying to deal with at times. (Installing the bolts and leaving them loose really helps, tighten them last) When installing the bracket to the bike put the bolts in from the bottom and the nuts and washers on top. The instructions have them the opposite way and IT IS a pain unless you've got 4 hands. It looks much cleaner! The butt connectors that come with the kit are low quality and I DID NOT use them. Solder, a small amount of dielectric grease and shrink tubing is the better way to go IMO. The install was a bit fiddly at times but, the clean look of this kit was well worth the extra effort.

Does exactly what it says it does
Once received I was happy with the directions, they were detailed and explained step by step how to change the old fender to this new one. Once started it only took me a little over an hour to do the changeover. So far I have found no issues with it, and as far as this one being the cheapest one I found it was a good deal.

Installed this kit and it looks amazing!!! Too bad the LED "block" fell out and I got pulled over by the police for not having a plate light. Had to buy an adhesive LED strip to make my bike legal for now.
