Yoshimura Fender Eliminator Kit Kawasaki Ninja 300 2013-2016
Great product, tricky to install but worth it...
I couldn't wait to get ride of the OEM fender cluster. This kit is pretty neat and allows you to re-use the OEM turn signals. Assembly is straight forward, as others have mentioned in reviews, the turn signals are a real pain to get into the brackets. It is worth the effort in the end, cleans up the look of the bike and the plate is more firmly attached to the bike The LED lights are cool too. The wire connectors included are cheap, get yourself some better ones from the auto parts store. I used crimp connectors with a waterproofing gel inside. Slip the wires in pinch with pliers and a solid waterproof connection with no electrical tape or shrink wrap.

Looks great, slight pain to install
So first off, the light/bracket/frame all look excellent, it seems like this is what the tail should look like from the factory. It was sort of a pain to install, however. Here are some tips so you don't gouge your eyes out: Use silicone lube to get the turn signals into the yoshi brackets, otherwise it will take hours of pain lol. Most importantly, after you cut off the stock license plate light connector, DO NOT splice it onto the new yoshi LED light until you thread the wires through the hole in the bracket. The instructions from yoshi tell you to crimp on the butt connectors BEFORE assembling the bracket, which would then require you to cut the wires again and do it over since the Kawi female connector will not fit through the hole in the bracket. This is a well-known issue with the instructions, but I didn't look up a 3rd party installation guide so I had to cut the wire a second time. I would also recommend to solder and heat-shrink the wires rather than use the cheap provided butt connectors. At the very least, be sure to use a heat gun to seal the heat shrink on the butt connectors and don't strip off so much insulation from the wires that copper is exposed on either side after crimping them together.
Overall, it's very pretty and the materials are high quality, but it's a bit overpriced for what it is. If you're too lazy to make your own bracket, this product is worth the cost.

Clean Finish, Durable
Was very excited to get rid of my stock fender on my Ninja 300. One of the most difficult parts was installing the stock turning signals into their new slots. Make sure you also keep track of which turn signal goes where when you pull them out.

Excellent product, 1-2 hour setup with no experience
This was a little daunting to try and install, especially for my first and brand new 2015 Ninja 300 SE, but it was worth it. Shipped within 2 days. Bike looks sweet!

LOOKS GREAT. INSTALL NOT EASY AS REVZILLA SAYS TO ME
Product is amazing. Two problems I had were the wire connectors for the led license plate it comes with are not good for puting wires together. It's best to splice them together. Also the instructions say to wire everything together but if you do that before placing the led light onto the bracket the stock wires will not fit into the hole. So i had to re-splice. Customer service from Yoshimura was very helpful with a couple questions I had and 1 problem.

Not as easy as it seems.
The process of assembly before it even gets near the bike is a little bit excessive but over all good strong dependable material.
