Has anyone done anything about adding an underseat fender? I did the fender eliminator but now my back gets soaked every time it rains.
I actually had your XDS in mind Todd while visioning my 'solution'...That looks way better to my eyes. Nice job!
What did you do with the cables that fed the vertical blinkers either side of the plate mount ?I really didn't like the rear US turn signals so it was the Custom LED module for me. I removed the rear fender as well and think that this is far as I will go.
So far the wet stuff hasn't really bothered me. I can always put the fender back on with 4 bolts, if I change my mind.
I've got a MotoComposite twill weave carbon fiber "toilet lid". I'd use the small lights with the MotoComposites CF "lid". The smaller light kit would make the carbon fiber stand out much more. I think that would look good. Just my 2 cents....... í ½í¸ took it off anyway!
I completely agree if you want comfort, warmth, and protection from the elements go buy a goldwing. Otherwise suck it up buttercup, deal with a little dirt/water, and look and feel like a real man. ha haThe eliminator choices look great.
Part of riding a hooligan bike is getting dirty. You could get one of these, LOL
Interesting idea. Hey that middle light or reflector looks great. Is that aftermarket or is your bike a newer year and that's stock?Thanks for the great tip! Else my hand could have stuck in there. Took close to an hour for me, it sure is tight under the seat. Below are my setting:
1) running light brightness to "1"
2) brake modulator - left it at "1" (four flashes,solid for 3 seconds, repeat), will eventually try out the "Blaster X" or "Max strobe" some day
As for the fender (splash-guard), I took the middle ground and chopped off the top portion. I think it function well to block off small rocks/stones (and still showcase the fat tire), which might land on the belt. That was my main concern, not the wet stuffs.
