    2017 fz-09 licence/fender eliminator install from Yamaha

    I couldn't take it anymore. I had to get rid of that hideous license plate and mud guard. Sorry no pictures of the new unit. It does however look great and the seat release cover is kept intact to prevent dirt and mud from entering. The bad news is that the kit from Yamaha, although complete and well made is a royal pain to install. The instructions were poor at best as it left a lot to your imagination. The illustration for the routing of the wiring from the exterior to the interior was virtually worthless. The one hour indicated time to complete the job turned in to 3 1/2 hours with much head scratching. I've built three experimental airplanes so i"m used to following a good set of plans and diagrams but this was a total let down.
    All said and done I would say get it because the finished product is well made and looks good.

    Here's two photos of the finished product. So glad that ugly growth has been removed and put away on the shelf of shame.
