Yoshimura Fender Eliminator Kit Kawasaki ZX10R / ZX6R
Good product, but it has considerations
The quality of the (many) individual pieces is very good. The finish looks excellent, and will seeming last a very long time. The metal is thick and cut/stamped very cleanly (no edges, burrs, etc.) The quality of the materials certainly rates 5 stars and make it all worth it
The instructions are terse at best. There is no picture except for a schematic, that is ok. I would rate the instructions 3 stars at best. The instructions are (barely) adequate, but could certainly has much room for improvement.
I have a couple of complaints, but before I go into them, I want to say that I would buy this again without hesitation. Anyway, I don't like the way it fits together. It is basically 4 pieces that fit together successively with the license plate fitting on at the end. It works because the metal pieces are so substantial, but taking the license plate off to put on a new tag or new plate will be a real hassle because you have to take 80% apart. The width of the outside plate covers the tag, so it almost ensures that you will have to take it apart to put on the new tag unless you plan to cover a bit of the license numbers/letters.
My second complaint is that there is nothing for the hole where the wires come through. I would imagine that in significant rain, the tire would shoot rain up into the hole and you would have water inside the tail. I don't ride in the rain so I don't care much, but if you do, you may have to find some creative way to plug the opening better than just the wires running through (silicone??).
I wanted something that didn't change the stock blinkers. I wanted safety above looks. The integrated tail lights look slick, but getting rear-ended scares the crud out of me. Anyway, as someone else mentioned it is a bit of a pain to put in the stock blinkers. Just make sure you take out both plates. One plate screws into the other. The second plate (the inner plate) is what actually holds the blinker onto the holding bracket. This wasn't obvious to me, and the instructions are as I said "terse".
The end result is amazing though. After getting used to that nasty eye-sore of a tail thingy, you will be very happy about how it all looks. It turns a fat obnoxious rear into a tight sexy little thing, and that is always good ;-)

Does not come with turn signals
I bought this kit and had to return it. The construction is high quality and there is even a license plate light.
The only issue is it DOES NOT come with turn signals. So in my case my bike was bought used with an aftermarket fender eliminator kit already on it, so I did not have the stock turn signals. Thankfully returning it to Revzill wasn't a problem.
If your looking for a great fender eliminator with high visibility get this you'll be very happy. Just remember you need your stock signals.

This fender eliminator looks so much better than that big ugly stock one on the 2011 ZX6R. They say that it's supposed to reduce weight but to me it feels the same. I had 2 problems with this product. The first was that the LED light wouldn't fit into the holes that came on the plate holder section mainly because the screws provided were a little too big. I tried to look for some smaller ones but could not find the same tread type and all that stuff so instead I left it off the bike, which was no big deal because my taillight lights it up pretty good. The second was that I kept the stock turn lights and put them into the brackets that come with the kit except it was a hassle getting them into the holes. I don't blame the kit but it took me awhile to get them in there. Other than that, my bike looks better and I hope it lasts after paying so much for it!

Simple Install, Solid product
This fender eliminator is fantastic, price is a little high but definitely worth the money. Doesn't look cheap and it feels like it will last forever. The 4 license LEDS spread light better then the single bulb on the OEM Fender, color seems to be about 6000k. Overall great product.
