I just got the CW piece, and as someone who has been building and modifying cars and bikes for a good number of years, I can honestly say that parts of the kit were pretty well thought out, and yet others were not. The fitment was ok, not great but not horrible. The wiring is a disaster for something brand new out of the box. All in all I'd give it a solid 7/10 It might have been an 8 if there wasn't a missing piece requiring me to fabricate.

I purchased an M696 ABS a few weeks ago and promptly kicked off the right rear turn signal. From what I've read this seems to be a common problem. For a part that sticks out like it does it's a horribly cheap design. So my next step was to find a fender eliminator kit and solve the problem once and for all. From the research I've done across multiple forums the Evotech kit seemed to be the best. I also couldn't figure out how the Competition Werkes could possiblytake two hours to install. I decided on the Evotech but found a brand new CW kit on ebay for $45. Regardless of the crappy instructions and non-painted stainless steel I couldn't pass up a bargain like that.

I installed it yesterday and the warnings of how big of a pain it was and vague instructions were true. It took two hours of fitting and refitting and head scratching to finally get it on. I popped one fuse that controlled the taillight in the process too. I also painted it black before I installed it.

Overall, now that it's done, I'm definitely happy with the looks and quality. I wish I had taken pictures. I could have done a better writeup.

Just bought the Evotech elim, personally best $140 I've spent on the bike so far. Instructions were much better than most suggested.

I'm a stickler about buying things and wanted an angled shot of it but could never find one. Hopefully this helps if anyone is considering buying it....took me about a year to finally buy it.

after much research I purchased an Evotech.Got a local guy who specialises in Italian bikes to fit it which cost me another $200.(total $340). Was worth every penny as it looks great and the guy who fitted reckons it's the best quality fender eliminator he has ever see,(3mm thick aluminium)

i tail chopped my S4 2 years ago luckily i did not do the same to my M750 as when i ride the s4 I get covered in crap and the back of the bike needs a wash after every ride ,,, i plan to re weld the T TRay tail and all its bits back on some time , tail chops look sexy but are not practical if u use the bike regularly in all weathers

motodynamics off ebay for $50. i put the plate bracket on backwards and bent it back a little to make the plate less visible by speed and red light cameras. instructions on this plate suck but fortunately i found this thread and jmlenz's pics helped a little:
