Well there aren't too many FEs out yet for the 05s so I'll be waiting for some time but I can't decide on what one I want. What does everyone prefer?

I would like to easily remount the stock signals to the FE until I upgrade the signals. What one would make that easiest to do?

Also some pics of everyone's set up would be nice. Thanks.

Hmm... after looking into the Competition Werkes a little more I'm starting to really like it. I think I'm going to get that one. It's 160 shipped from their website. Anyone know where to get it cheaper for an 05?

The little flushmount signals it comes with are really cool too and really clean up the tail.



You don't even really notice they're there.

If I were to get this would I have to worry about the FE bracket coming down on my tire hugger though? It looks really close and seems like one big bump will squish it.

It's on a hindge. It moves. THe 03-04 has a roller that rolls on the hugger. About the only thing better then the comp works it just pasting your plate right under your pipe flat with the plastic. So it could be even less visible.

I hate this FE because most people buy it. Then cry when they get a ticket because it's not legal. Well no crap, it's all the way under your bike, not in very good view and your plate has to be at teh rear of your bike, not in the middle. for looks yeah it's nice, if u want to be pulled over it's nice also. Just my opinion.

I looked at FE's for a while but they were all too messy for me; I like the one I made; I've been thinking about an undertail; so I may get that instead

I've got the Comp Werkes, yes, it looks awesome. You may or may not want to paint the stainless steel pan black before you install, just depends on if you want a big shiny piece of stainless up under your seat.
I've never been pulled for it, if it happens and I get a ticket and come on here crying you can tell me "Suck it up, buttercup" or something like that. Around here the police don't screw with you unless you need screwing with, then they might start piling some tickets on ya.

Larry's FE w/LED plate lights. If you don't want the lights, the FE is only $33. I moved the turn signals back to the reflector brackets. The only problem (not much of a problem) was that I had to extend the right turn signal wire and run it through the passenger seat storage compartment b/c the light clips are on the left side. I just drilled a couple of holes in the plastic and ran the wire through it. BTW-Larry's top-notch with the service.

Up until last month I had a Competition Werkes Fender Eliminator. I got tired of getting pulled over for the plate not being visible. So finally, I decided to take it off and add a Targa fender eliminator instead. Actually, I've grown to like the Targa better. I think it looks fine, and I haven't been pulled over since.

How long did it take to receive your FE form Larry? I ordered mine about a week and a half ago but still no FE.

pretty muchanything other than stock is illegal anways... so go comp werkes... you wont regret it at all..
Not to split hairs about the legality or illegality of fender eliminators, but if one set-up draws attention and gets you pulled over constantly, and one is more or less accepted by the local police, I'll opt for one that doesn't get me pulled over constantly.

I decided to take off my Competition Werkes FE because locally, the police take a dim view of them, and they constantly scrutinize them. So far the Targa FE has passed muster with them, regardless of their legality--- simply put, because the plate is plainly visible.
