Kawasaki Ninja 400 STG Project Bike

  • The 2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 is the latest lightweight bike to hit the market so we decided to pick one up and do another STG Project Bike. A lot of moto media outlets are labeling this an "entry level" motorcycle which is fair given it's displacement and super comfy ergonomics. While we agree this would be one heck of a first bike we also feel the current crop of lightweights are a ton of fun to ride no matter your experience level. The Yamaha R3 has become pretty popular with experienced track riders since it was introduced in 2015 because it has proven to be a ton of fun to ride and the price is very affordable.

    With the Ninja 400 we will focus on street mods for the first part of the 2018 summer season installing all the bolt ons we can get our hands on. Once we finish the street mods we will turn the 400 into a track bike and begin the second part of the project.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 M4 Slip On Exhaust Install

  • We love this bike but the stock exhaust is too quiet, too heavy and it is just plain ugly. Installing the M4 Kawasaki Ninja 400 2018 Carbon Slip On Exhaust is a project most any rider can tackle and get a great result. The M4 Slip On for the Ninja 400 features a carbon can with a carbon end cap that really cleans up the look of the bike. M4 ships this system with the quiet inert installed and we feel the performance of the bike is best with the insert in place.

    M4 did a great job on this slip on and we feel it is a good buy at just over $400 with the carbon can.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 M4 Full Exhaust System Install

  • If you want to get the most power out of your Ninja 400 then a full exhaust system is a must. M4 worked hard to make what they feel is the best full system on the market today for the 400. Installing the M4 Kawasaki Ninja 400 2018 Carbon Full Exhaust System requires a little more effort than installing a slip on, but it is a project most can manage with common hand tools. Kawasaki did a great job making the OEM bodywork on this bike easy to remove and reinstall which makes projects like this one a whole lot easier. This system can be installed using the stock passenger pegs or the race mount bracket M4 includes with the system.

How To Remove The Stock Bodywork on a 2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400

  • OEM bodywork removal and re-installation has not gotten any easier over the years. As the technology has moved forward on the bikes the bodywork has become more difficult to work with on most models. I am happy to report the 2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 is not included in the group of bikes with over complicated OEM plastics. Kawasaki did a great job with the OEM bodywork on this bike, it is easy to get off and reinstall which makes both maintenance and mods a whole lot easier to do. In this video we cover how to remove and reinstall the OEM plastics on the Ninja, focusing on the right and left side fairings. The tail section is pretty straight forward and we will cover the upper fairing when we do our race bodywork installs.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Spiegler Brake Line Kit Install

  • Replacing the stock rubber brake lines with stainless steel braided brake lines is the best bang for the buck performance mod you can do to your bike. Doing this will increase both braking power and feel at the lever making the bike even more fun to ride. Installing the Spiegler Kawasaki Ninja 400 2018 ABS Front & Rear Brake Line Kit on the bike requires reasonable mechanical ability and common hand tools. In this video we show you what it takes to get this done every step of the way if you decide to tackle the project yourself. If you watch this video and do not feel comfortable with the project we recommend taking the bike to a licensed motorcycle technician.

    ABS equipped motorcycles require a little more patience and finesse when installing brake line kits as compared to their non ABS counterparts do, still this is worth the effort. Bleeding the brakes on an ABS bike is no different than a standard model, just takes a little longer to do with the additional line length.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Akrapovic Carbon Slip On Exhaust Install

  • Akrapovic produces some of the highest quality products in the world today, no one will argue that. The Akrapovic Kawasaki Ninja 400 2018 Carbon Slip-On Exhaust is everything we expected it to be before we began the install. The carbon canister comes with a noise reducing insert presintalled to keep the noise in check. This is removable if you choose to do so and we had Max Van rev the STG Ninja 400 with and without the insert installed.

    This Carbon slip on is designed to be easily upgraded to a full system by installing the Akrapovic Kawasaki Ninja 400 2018 Stainless Steel Optional Header if you prefer to replace the entire system from cylinder head back. We will have a video install for both the Akra Header and this slip on very soon.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Akrapovic Full Exhaust System Install

  • The Akrapovic Kawasaki Ninja 400 Stainless Steel Header is designed to be used with their Akrapovic Kawasaki Ninja 400 2018 Carbon Slip-On Exhaust for riders who want a full exhaust system. As with all Akrapovic Exhaust the quality and fit of this header is absolutely top shelf. This header has a larger diameter than the OEM header and will accept the 12mm OEM exhaust sensor or the larger 14mm sensor if you intend to use an aftermarket sensor for tuning purposes.

    6.7 lbs is the combined weight of this header and the Akrapovic Carbon Slip On for the Kawasaki Ninja 400 (OEM Full Systems weighs 13.1 lbs). To achieve the best possible performance from your full system we recommend installing the noise insert that is included with the Carbon Slip On for the Ninja 400.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Driven Halo Fuel Cap Install

  • OEM gas caps are one of the first things to get replaced on most sportbikes. The Driven HALO Fuel Cap Base Kawasaki Ninja 400 bolts right up to the tank of your Ninja ready to accept the Driven HALO Fuel Cap which is available in 6 different colors to fit the color scheme of your bike.

    We have installed the Driven keyless fuel caps on several STG Project Bikes over the years and have always been happy with their style, fit and performance. This is a great mod for any track bike that gets you one step closer to eliminating the key all together as well as a common mod for street riders looking to customize the look of their bike.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Driven Fender Eliminator Install

  • If you have seen our STG Best Sportbike Mods Feature you already know we did not start this project with Mod #1, the Fender Eliminator. We finally removed that boat anchor of a stock rear fender and installed the Driven Kawasaki Ninja 400 2018 Fender Eliminator w/Arrow Turn Signals on the bike. The Driven Fender Eliminators serve up a pretty unique design that uses all machined billet aluminum pieces. With the Driven kit you have the option of getting one with or without turn signals. They also just released the Driven D-Light LED Plate Frame we install in this video which is a slick finishing touch for sure.

    Replacing the stock rear turn signals with the Driven LED signals we also needed to replace the turn signal flasher to get the proper flash rate on the Ninja 400. If you are cool with the flash rate being much faster than OEM you could leave it as is.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Driven Axle Block Sliders Install

  • The Driven Kawasaki Ninja 400 2018 Axle Block Sliders look great on the bike while protecting that swingarm. These replace the thin sheet metal OEM axle adjusters with machined billet aluminum goodness available in several colors to personalize your Ninja 400. We went with red on our STG Ninja 400 Project Bike which meet heavy protest from Max Van who felt blue would have been the way to go.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Driven D-Axis Grips Install

  • You don't have to do a whole lot of riding before you discover that the OEM grips really suck. Replacing the grips with a quality set of aftermarket grips can make it more comfortable to ride and dress it up a bike. We really like the Driven D-Axis Grips because they use a 2-ply gel grip that feels great in your hands (reduces vibration a bit as well) with colored accents on both ends to get that pop of color. This is a quality grip that we have ridden with quite a bit here at STG so we know it performs great and lasts a long time.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Driven Swingarm Spools Install

  • The Kawasaki Ninja 400 is a bike we see a lot of new riders throwing their leg over. That said we want to make sure we cover all the basics with this project to help a new rider get dialed in right off the line. As a sportbike owner you will most likely want to do most of the mods to your bike yourself. Installing a set of spools allows you to lift the bike with a proper rear stand which is needed to perform many of the projects we will show you with our STG Kawasaki Ninja 400.

    The Driven Kawasaki Ninja 400 2018 Swingarm Spools are available in several colors to customize the look of your bike and offer excellent quality. This should be one of the first mods you make to your new Ninja.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Two Brothers S1R Slip-On Exhaust Install

  • The Two Brothers Kawasaki Ninja 400 S1R Slip-On Exhaust looks absolutely amazing in the Carbon Can. The carbon Two Brothers uses on their can's is different than anything we see from other exhaust brands. The end caps of the can are magnesium and aluminum, teflon coated black which really compliment that carbon sleeve. Installing this slip-on is a pretty basic project most any rider can tackle on their own.

    This Two Brothers Slip On retains the OEM Cat and is designed for closed course operation. With this slip on you do not need to install a fuel controller or tune the ECU on the bike. Sound inserts are sold separately if you would like to reduce the noise level after you install the system.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Driven Rearsets Install

  • The Driven Kawasaki Ninja 400 2018 Rearsets are fully adjustable so you can dial in the ergos of your Ninja to suit your riding style. Driven TT Rearsets have 4 footpeg positions to choose from with adjustable folding toe pieces on both pedals so you can keep the distance between the footpegs and toe pieces right where you need them to be. With this kit you are able to run standard or GP (reverse) shift pattern with no additional parts required.

    In the comments section for this video we have been asked "Why would you replace the rearsets?" which is a great question we will address here as well. Stock rearsets typically focus on street riding and comfort so the position of the pegs is a little lower and further forward. This works great on the street but will limit the amount of lean angle you can use at the track (or during spirited street rides) in addition to having no adjustabliity. Aftermarket rearsets will increase the ground clearance so you can use more lean angle and offer adjustability so you can dial in the ergos to suit your riding style. Most of the rearset kits we offer have fixed footpegs (OEM fold up) which offer more feel and can help reduce crash damage.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Yoshimura Street Alpha T Slip-On Exhaust Install

  • The Yoshimura Kawasaki Ninja 400 2018 Works Edition Street Alpha T Slip-On Exhaust is a street legal slip on that looks and sounds great! If you do your riding on the street and prefer to keep your Ninja street legal / emission compliant Yoshimura is the way to go. This Alpha T Slip On tubing offers their "Works" finish that will change colors over time with heat offering a look very similar to titanium. Installing this slip on reduces the weight approximately 3.3 lbs while adding a little more power and torque to your Ninja. With this slip-on system you do not need to install a fuel controller or flash the ECU.

    We have installed several Yoshimura Exhaust Systems over the years here at STG and have always appreciated how well they fit the bike and their overall quality. We feel the fit of a Yoshimura Exhaust is very close to the OEM exhaust which makes the install easy and the finished result excellent.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Yoshimura Race Alpha T Full Exhaust System Install

  • The Yoshimura Kawasaki Ninja 400 2018 Alpha T Race Full Exhaust System looks great on the bike with a precise OEM like fit. Installing this full exhaust system on your Ninja 400 will increase the power, reduce the weight by 5 lbs and give it an exhaust note that will put a smile on your face. This system uses the Yoshimura Works Finish that starts off matte grey and changes to a golden titanium look after it is heat cycled. The Alpha T Muffler looks great on the 400 and the carbon end cap is a great finishing touch.

    This is a Race Series Full Exhaust System that is designed for closed course operation. It ships with an optional sound insert that is not installed from the factory. We reached out to Yoshimura asking if there was any change in performance with or without the insert and was told installing the insert increase total power a touch while reducing the sound level. Without the insert we were told there was a little more bottom end power around 7-8000 RPM. As with any system best practice is to use a fuel controller or ECU flash to get maximum benefit from the full system.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Hindle EVO Megaphone Slip-on Exhaust Install

  • The Hindle Kawasaki Ninja 400 EVO Megaphone Slip-on Exhaust is the most affordable slip on option we have currently for the Ninja 400 starting at just over $200. The Hindle Megaphone EVO Muffler is available with either a Stainless Steel or Carbon Fiber End Cap and mounts to the OEM passenger peg. This is an easy installation that most any rider can complete with basic hand tools. With this slip-on system you do not need to install a fuel controller or flash the ECU.

    Over the past couple of seasons we have installed multiple Hindle Exhaust Systems and feel they offer quality parts (made in Canada) at a fair price. The Ninja 400 Hindle Slip On is designed for closed course operation even though it does not require the removal of the OEM cat.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Hindle EVO Megaphone Full Exhaust System Install

  • This full exhaust system sells for less than most of the slip ons we offer for the Ninja 400! Watch the video install and you will see the Hindle Kawasaki Ninja 400 EVO Megaphone Full Exhaust System is a quality full system that delivers a ton of bang for the buck. If you follow the MotoAmerica Junior Cup you will see this same pipe on Ashton Yates Kawasaki Ninja 400 when he is running up front. Installing this system will drop 7.4 lbs in weight and requires removal of the OEM cat. Best practice when installing a full system is to remap the ECU or install a fuel controller to get all the available performance benefits. This system is designed for closed course operation only.

    Hindle offers this system in both Standard Mount (uses your OEM passenger peg) or Race Mount which includes a bracket to replace the OEM passenger peg. The tubing and muffler sleeve are both light weight stainless steel with either a staninless steel or carbon fiber end cap available.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Woodcraft Clutch Cover Protector Install

  • The Woodcraft Kawasaki Ninja 400 Clutch Cover Protector bolts right on top of the OEM clutch cover in minutes. It is designed to help prevent damage to the fragile OEM clutch cover during a crash or tip over. Installing this cover protector can be the difference between picking your bike up and riding away or leaking oil from the cracked cover after a crash. We recommend installing this on any bike ridden on the race track and feel this is also something street riders should also consider.

    Woodcraft offers the replaceable skid pad in multiple colors to give your bike that custom look we all like to have (even though some of us refuse to admit we dig a little bling on our bike).

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Woodcraft Stator Cover Protector Install

  • The Woodcraft Kawasaki Ninja 400 Stator Cover Protector bolts right on top of the OEM stator cover in minutes. It is designed to help prevent damage to the fragile OEM stator cover during a crash or tip over. Installing this cover protector can be the difference between picking your bike up and riding away or leaking oil from the cracked cover after a crash. We recommend installing this on any bike ridden on the race track and feel this is also something street riders should also consider.

    Just like with their Ninja 400 Stator Cover protector Woodcraft offers the replaceable skid pad in multiple colors to give your bike that custom look we all like to have (even though some of us refuse to admit we dig a little bling on our bike).

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Woodcraft Rearset Kit Install

  • The Woodcraft Kawasaki Ninja 400 Rearset Kit uses a design specific to the New Ninja 400 rather than trying to get an existing design to work with the Ninja. Woodcraft has a unique relationship with Kawasaki (the owner also runs a race school that rides on Kawasaki's) so he rides and races on their bikes. When designing a new range of parts the more time and exposure you have with the bike the better the end result will be. We have installed all of the Kawasaki Ninja 400 parts from Woodcraft at this point and really like what we see. This rearset kit is a great example of just how good Woodcraft is at what they do.

    With 12 positions of adjustment available this kit will get you the ground clearance you need to corner low and help you dial in the ergos to suit your style. On the shift side of the kit you are able to choose from standard or GP shift pattern without installing any additional parts. (Note: we found the front sprocket cover needs to be trimmed a touch for GP shift). The only thing we would like to have seen added to this kit was for the OEM brake light switch to fit which is nice for street riders. End of the day this can be overcome by using a brake light banjo bolt if you require the rear brake light to be functional.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Woodcraft Street Frame Slider Kit Install

  • If you are riding your Ninja 400 on the street this no cut frame slider kit can help to protect those expensive OEM fairings in a slow speed tip over or crash. The Woodcraft Kawasaki Ninja 400 Street Frame Slider Kit does not require the cutting of your stock plastics which is something most street riders do not want to do. Woodcraft did a solid job with the design of this kit to get a no cut set up that has the strength required to make a difference in a crash or tip over. We were impressed with the engineering and the finished product after they were installed.

    We recommend this frame slider kit for street riders who prefer not to cut the bodywork. As with any offset no cut frame slider kit these would not be as effective as a direct mount (no offset) kit that requires cutting of the OEM fairings. If you prefer a higher level of protection and are ok with cutting the fairings we recommend going with the Woodcraft Kawasaki Ninja 400 Race Frame Slider Kit.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 New Rage Cycles Fender Eliminator Install

  • The New Rage Cycles Kawasaki Ninja 400 Fender Eliminator replaces that massive OEM rear fender and really cleans up the lines of the all new Ninja 400. As with all the other New Rage Cycles Fender Kits we have installed this one sports that trick LED turn signal bar with an LED plate light. To keep the flash rate in check this kit ships with the New Rage Dual Load Equalizer.

    We installed this kit when it was first released and really like the look once it was installed on the 400. Our kit was one of the first ones off the line and we found a minor hardware issue (see the video) so we reached out to New Rage and they were able to make a correction to all of the kits before they shipped out. Really impressed with how dedicated they are to producing a top quality product. If you like the look of this kit just go ahead and pull the trigger, you won't be disappointed!

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 New Rage Cycles Mirror Eliminators Install

  • Mirror eliminators allow you to remove the OEM mirrors to get that clean, supersport look for your bike. The Kawasaki Ninja 400 New Rage Cycles Mirror Eliminators installs using the OEM mirror hardware using basic handtools and only takes a couple minutes to do. Mirror eliminators are typically installed when a street rider removes the OEM mirrors and replaces them with a bar end mirror in their place. These are also a great for removing the mirrors if you are taking the Ninja to do a track day.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Leo Vince LV-10 Slip-On Exhaust Install

  • The Leo Vince Kawasaki Ninja 400 2018 LV-10 Slip-On Exhaust looks amazing on the bike, one of the best fit and finish slip-ons we offer for the 400. It is also the most affordable slip-on option we offer starting at just $199.95. Normally we would not have very high expectations for a slip-on under $200, this one exceeded all expectations.

    At 2.65 lbs the Leo Vince Ninja 400 Slip-On will shave 6.4 lbs of weight from the bike. This slip-on does not require the use of a fuel controller and installs in minutes using common hand tools most any rider would have in their tool kit.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Woodcraft Clip-Ons Install

  • The ergonomics of the Kawasaki Ninja 400 make this one of the most comfortable sportbikes you could throw a leg over. As your riding improves and you start to corner low you will find these same comfortable ergonomics are now limiting the amount of lean angle you can use. The Kawasaki Ninja 400 Woodcraft Clip-ons install under the top triple clamp lowering the bars as far as they can be without creating clearance issues with the bodywork. This new bar position will help you get into a more athletic position on the bike for race track or performance street riding. We recommend installing a set of rearsets on the Ninja 400 with the clip-ons to get the maximum benefit.

    Installing a set of clip-ons is a project that takes time and patience to get done properly. Our Ninja 400 Woodcraft Clip-on Install Video shows exactly what it takes every step of the way to get this all dialed in on your 400. As always if you do not feel comfortable performing this install we suggest taking the bike to a licensed motorcycle technician.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 GB Racing Cover Protector Set Install

  • The GB Racing Kawasaki Ninja 400 2018 Engine Cover Protector Set is a mod we recommend to both street and track riders alike. OEM Engine Covers are vulnerable when the bike is dropped or crashed. Installing these GB Racing Cover Protectors can be the difference between picking the bike up and finishing your ride and leaking oil all over. In this video we cover all the steps it takes to install these cover protectors over your OEM covers. This is a relatively easy install, still if you do not feel comfortable with all the steps we recommend taking the bike to a licensed motorcycle technician.

    Over the years we have installed GB Racing Covers on several of our STG Project Bikes and have always been impressed with them. Max Van has crash tested them on the STG R3 and we are happy to report they worked like a charm.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Motion Pro Throttle Tube Mod

  • Before we dive in we will hit you with a quick disclaimer: WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE ON ANY LEVEL IF YOU DECIDE TO DO THIS TO YOUR BIKE! If you have found it takes a real big twist to get your Ninja 400 to wide open throttle installing the Motion Pro Yamaha YZF-R6 03-05 Nylon Throttle Sleeve will make a significant improvement to that for under $10. In this video we show the steps we took to install this on our STG Ninja 400 to get the result we wanted. We got this idea from one of our customers and reached out to him. He directed us to the Ninja 400 Forum where he found this.

    When you are working on the throttle it is very important the end result leaves the throttle operating smoothly with a strong return. A throttle that binds and sticks is a very serious safety hazard. Never ride any bike that has a sketchy throttle! All apologies for all the disclaimers, we just need to cover our ass.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Woodcraft Axle Slider Kit (Front or Rear) Install

  • The Woodcraft Kawasaki Ninja 400 2018 Axle Slider Kit is designed to help protect the axles in a crash and can be installed on the front or rear axles (if you want to do both you will need to order 2 kits). The axles on the Ninja 400 will contact the ground in a crash and can be difficult to remove if the damage is significant. This kit will prevent that from happening without making your tire changes more difficult. Of all the axle slider kits we have seen on the market the Woodcraft kits are the most robust in our opinion. If you plan to take your Ninja 400 to the track installing these axle sliders is a good call.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Techspec Tank Grip Install

  • If you have a Ninja 400 you need to get a set of tank grips on that bike. Tank grips help you ride the bike more efficiently by using your legs which is harder to do when the tank is smooth. Techspec Kawasaki Ninja 400 2018 Tank Grip is a quality kit from a solid brand we have been working with for the last several seasons. In this video we show the Techspec Kit that we installed on the STG Yamaha R3 in 2015 that is still in excellent condition.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Driven Captive Wheel Spacers Install

  • Once you start riding track days or race it won't be long before you are swearing up a storm when one of the OEM wheel spacers falls out when you're trying to put the wheel back on. The Driven Kawasaki Ninja 400 2018 Captive Wheel Spacers install easily once the wheels are off and will keep the spacer where it needs to be. This is money well spent for any track rider, we use them on all of our STG Project Bikes as most of the riding we do is at the track.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Hotbodies Racing MGP Levers Install

  • From the factory the Ninja 400 comes with fixed, non adjustable levers installed. While these will get the job done they do not offer any adjustability. The Hotbodies 2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Racing MGP Levers are sold in a set and install easily on the bike. Hotbodies MGP Levers feature adjustable length and reach to get the controls dialed in to suit your riding style. To help prevent a broken lever during a tip over the MGP Levers are able to fold up.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Driven Mirror Eliminators Install

  • Removing the mirrors is a great way to clean up the front of your bike and get that Supersport look we all want. The Driven Kawasaki Ninja 400 2018 Mirror Eliminators are available in multiple colors and install easily. (The main reason we did this video was to give you a closer look at them installed on the Ninja 400) If you ride the bike on the street you should install a bar end mirror with the mirror eliminators. We have several great options for bar end mirrors from Driven Racing and CRG on the site. Mirror eliminators are also a great finishing touch for a track bike if you like a little bling in your life.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Hotbodies Racing Fender Eliminator Install

  • Like most every other sportbike the Kawaski Ninja 400 comes from the factory with a massive rear fender that no one wants to ride with. The Hotbodies Racing 2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Fender Eliminator is one of several fender eliminators we have installed on our Ninja 400. Each of these fender eliminators we have installed offer their own unique design an look. This one is a one piece molded ABS Plastic with LED lights for the rear signals and plate light held in place with adhesive. It may not look like much when you open the package but it looks great on the bike.

    The turn signal flash rate will be much faster than it was with the OEM rear signals after installing the Hotbodies Tag Bracket because the current draw of the LED signals is much lower than the OEM signals. If you prefer to have a flash rate closer to the speed it was with the OEM signals we recommend installing the Driven Flasher Relay like we did to our Ninja 400 in this video install.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Hotbodies Racing Install

  • The OEM Windscreen on the Kawasaki Ninja 400 is so ugly I can't find the words to describe it. The Hotbodies Racing Kawasaki Ninja 400 Windscreen replaces that flat OEM screen with a cool dual radius one that really improves the look of the little 400. We do not have this listed on our site yet as we are waiting on the images and part numbers from Hotbodies Racing. Stay tuned for updates.

2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Yoshimura Fender Eliminator Install

  • The Yoshimura 2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Fender Eliminator offers a modular design that allows you to multiple options to best suit your style. It includes a Yoshimura Plate Frame, LED Plate Light and brackets that accept the OEM turn signals along with the most complete instructions we have seen with all of the fender eliminators we have installed. In this video we installed the full kit and reused the OEM rear signals as we feel this is what most riders will do. The quality of the Yosh Fender Eliminator is excellent and we feel that installing the kit as we did in this video will offer the most trouble free performance over the long haul as it does not require rewiring the rear signals.

    If you prefer to replace the OEM rear signals with aftermarket LED signals Yoshimura offers optional brackets that will accept most aftermarket signals. It is important to note that installing the LED signals will change the flash rate of the turn signals and require a new flasher relay or resistors be installed to correct this.
