Yoshimura Fender Eliminator Kit Yamaha FZ8 2011-2013
It's very nice Dear
It's a great alternative to the god awful trailer hitch light assembly/ license plate holder that yamaha felt was necessary at manufacture. As I recall the installation was quite easy,but that was during a Memorial day party so it's a little fuzzy. There was no left over parts afterward and it works perfectly still today. It also comes with yoshimura stickers if that's your thing. Being as I'm not a tool box the stickers went to my son as he is into such things...my buddy has a different license plate eliminator and it is not as well made...he was quite jealous of the better quality and of the stickers. He is a Tool box. Anyway it's worth the extra cash and will clean up the lines on any bike. I hope this helps.

I installed this somewheres around a year ago maybe less, the other night I was riding at night and stopped off to look at a friends new house. Well I noticed the the LED's werent working so I thought ahh ok maybe the wiring is loose, so i checked that checked the fuses on my bike then i realized hey lets check the LEDs themselves. Well since the LED's are totally out in the open and uncovered i found out they had been damaged and no longer were working I tested them with a power source and a volt meter and they were totally dead. The LED's themselves are high quality but something of that quality should be covered to be protected.I would not recommend this to anyone unless somehow you could install a piece of plastic in front of the LEDs to protect them.For the price its totally not worth it. I threw all the BS parts away and just use the bracket now. Still missing a license plate light. Havent been pulled over for it yet. (fingers crossed)

Integrated design compliments that bikes natural aesthetic
Yoshimura does a great job developing accessories that compliment the bike versus sticking out like a sore thumb. Sure, you can buy a fender elim for a lot less elsewhere but my advice is spend the extra $$ to get a product that is designed with your bike in mind. You'll be happy you did. The product was easy to install and everything was labeled and packaged neatly as you would expect from Yosh.

This product works exactly as advertised.
This kit fit perfectly, and install took about an hour. It looks great when installed, and functions flawlessly. The LED license plate lights are nice, and much brighter than the OEM Yamaha lights. I only have one (*very* minor) issue with the kit: it includes simple (non-sealing) butt-connectors to make the electrical connections for the license plate light. I threw those away and used 3M self-sealing butt-connectors with shrink-tube to keep dirt and water out of the electrics.
Great kit! Would buy again!!!

This kit is high quality product, it is made of quality metal parts and doesn't look cheap.Installation was fairly easy and straightforward, all the parts/instructions are supplied and easy to work with. This kit is a perfect match and huge improvement in how FZ8 looks like. My favorite feature is LED lights for the license plate.
As always super fast shipping and price match guarantee from Revzilla helps a lot when trying to save some $.

Works perfectly, and as advertised. Feels pretty solid once installed. I don't question the quality at all. Looks great!
