Yoshimura Fender Eliminator Kit Kawasaki Ninja 650 2012-2016
Nightmare to install
Nightmare to install on 2015 Ninja 650. The parts just aren't made to fit. After a lot of sweat and aggravation, got it on and love it.

Legit tail cleanup for the Ninja 650
Pricey and a pain to install, but everything about the final result is worth the effort. Looks incredible compared to stock and other aftermarket options. Disclaimer: Setting the factory turn signal stalks into the Yoshimura bracket assembly is one of the hardest things I've ever had to do mechanically so have fun and good luck.

Love the product and how it looks. Decently priced. However, revzilla has the flat fee shipping of 30$ to Canada. But I had to pay an additional 25$ upon arrival for a collect on delivery fee.
For that reason Id have a hard time ordering something else for over the border shipping.

Easy to assemble if you can read diagram
It looks better than the stock fender. The assembly itself is very easy to put together. The lights, however, take a bit of work. If you cut a small gap (1/8 inch) off the larger end of the rubber ending of your lights, you should be able to get it in with in a minute. I didn't do that and wasted more than half an hour trying to fit it in the kit's slot.

A bit pricy, but well worth it
I've had this fender eliminator on my bike for about a month and a half now. I always have liked Yoshimura products and that's what turned me onto this one. I know that there are cheaper FEs, but that fact this was all metal swayed me.
The price is a little steep for what you're getting, but I'd say it is worth it. I've heard enough horror stories of plastic FE kits snapping mid ride and plates going missing, so I didn't want to risk that.
Personally, I'm not about hiding my plate so much, so the angle of the FE kit is perfect for me. It gets rid of that horrifically ugly fender, but still displays the plate clearly to avoid issues with the law. The LED strip on the top of the kit is wonderfully bright and so much better than the OEM light on the plate.
The ease of installation is based on your electrical knowledge. I rated it a 3 since if you're not used to electrical work, it may be a bit tricky. As for the mechanical installation, it is fairly simple. Remove seat, undo bolts, remove the fender and line up the new holder.
The only other thing that was tough was installing the turn indicators back on to the kit. I don't know if there is a trick to that, but I could not find an easy way to squeeze those rubber grommets into the slot. By far, that took me longer than anything else. About an hour and very sore fingers. I'd be happy if someone could enlighten me on an easier method to pushing those plates on. And on that note, the OEM screws holding the indicator bracket in place are complete trash, so consider replacing them or be very careful in removing them. They strip like they're trying to pay for college.
Overall, I definitely recommend this product. Yoshimura always delivers and they did not fail me on this one.

Best Fender Eliminator Available
This is the highest quality fender eliminator on the market. Everything works great and was easy to install. Everything is solid on this. The license plate light is bright and I paired this with a Motodynamic Integrated Tail Light which cleaned up the rear end nicely. I am very happy with this purchase.

Cleans up nicely.
I got my ninja 650 as my first sport bike. But it didn't feel sporty enough until I got rid of the rear fender. Installing everything was simple except the stock turn signals into the kitchen. Get ready to spend 30 minutes per light since the signal bracket is a really tight fit for the rubber grommets on the lights. Pliers are helpful getting those on.
