Yoshimura Fender Eliminator Kit Yamaha FZ-09 2014
Good design, bad execution
First, let me say that the way it looks is amazing. That being said, it has some flaws. The holes for the screws on the led light are not threaded, so I had to replace the bolts with regular screws and use some loctite to secure it. Also, in order to put the license plate on after initial install, like I had to since I installed before I got my plate, you have to remove the turn signals.
All in all, great product, just be aware of the flaws. Few other things, you will cut and re-use the seats key hole cover, and the stock turn signals are used.

Best kit for the FZ-09
By far the best looking kit. Super easy to install in less than 30 min. LED plate light looks great at night, and is White not yellow tint. Just put Lupis integrated tail light on last night and the pair look great!

Yoshimura Fender Eliminator Kit Looks Great!
This kit includes a full license plate frame and led light plus all the hardware. The fit was right-on and the end result looks awesome with the framed plate and led. Instructions were a little lacking so, I watched a u-tube vid for the graves unit which made the installation easy. I found that with this kit I could re-install the original red reflector side marker bracket and add a rear rectangular red reflector for "compliance "under the plate if the need arised but those big red reflectors hanging down below the turn signals and under the plate really detract from the clean look of the tail and defeat the original purpose - so I will take them back off. The sale price made the Yoshimura a no brainer and I'm very happy with the quality and appearance of this kit.

This fender eliminator is one of a handful out for fz-09 currently and of them all this has it all. It includes, tag light, removable turn signal brackets (for a clean look running integrated turn signals), a sweet Yoshi tag bracket (black), and a great finish. Overall, this is a winner, the only down side is the price. Install took about 15 mins and I didn't run into any snags, as always fast shipping from Revzilla which is the only place I shop for my bike.

I was skeptical on how the product looked but after I installed it. It's awesome. Major change. The directions are a little vague but I figured it out and its turn signals are compatible with aftermarket ones when they come available.

Looks Factory, Perfect Fit
Great product here. Install was a challenge but if you're buying this chances are you own tools and know what your doing. I installed this while installing my givi side bags since I had everything apart already. This fits PERFECT with the bag brackets and it looks awesome. Have not rode it since install but I'm hoping the durability will be good. Only problem I had was with my Village tag that my city requires did not want to fit with the license plate frame so I just tightened it on at an angle, not a big deal.

The installation of the Yosh FE was pretty straightforward once you figured out the instructions weren't going to be very helpful.
If you have an FZ-09 Service Manual, it could be helpful to remove the side panels. The Yosh parts are well made and once installed it looks great. The instructions from Yosh are poor at best. I'm very happy with the result and it looks as good as if Yamaha designers had planned it.
