Removing the factory license plate bracket and bulky turn signals and upgrading to something more sleek is one of the easiest way to change the look of your motorcycle. There are plenty of options out there to slim down your license plate hanger, with less options out there for slim/minimal turn signals. New Rage Cycles has some slick fender eliminator kits out there with some very subtle, yet effective (read bright as hell) blinkers.
Why is removing the bulky bits so gratifying?
New Rage Cycles produces products for most makes and models and after seeing their kit installed on a buddy's Ducati 899 Panigale, we decided to give their Ducati Hypermotard Fender Eliminator Kit a try for our very own Bullitt SP. Their Hyper kits work on the standard Hypermotard, the Hyperstrada and the Hyper SP.
Wiring was painless. We opted to install their optional Dual Load Equalizer which worked exactly as it should.
The overall process was pretty straight-forward and we were able to get it done in one evening. The blinkers tuck right up against the tail and mostly disappear until you need them. CNC machined from polycarbonate, using 1mm LEDs, these things are seriously bright.
Overall, we couldn't be happier with the system. Fit and function were both beyond what we expected. Installation was a breeze and price points are more than fair for the quality.
Next up we may lightly 'smoke' the blinkers to see if we can get them to really disappear. We've also got some of NRC's snap-on front LED signals that we're excited to give a try. Stay tuned...
