Motodynamics Fender Eliminator?

Anyone try the Motodynamics eliminator? I have been looking at their integrated lights which looks incredible. It says direct bolt on for most models, although there is an asterisk saying "Models with seat posts must be cut off prior to installation" What models have these seat posts? I have a 2012 M696 ABS.

Thanks,
krafty

Thanks for the pics, I'm definitely getting the light, looks fantastic. I shot them an email earlier about the eliminator, so we'll see what they say.

They didn't have any pics of the eliminator installed, so I just got the light and ordered the Evotech eliminator elsewhere.

I think you will be happy with the Evotech. It is built very well and has the best key access for the seat removal IMO. Doing them together makes the most scene so you do not have to pull it all apart again. There is a great write up on here on how to do the install your self and also one on youtube. It is pretty easy, but a little time consuming to do.

How hard was the install? Haven't done any mods on my 2010 696 yet and I was wondering if it would be easy enough for me to do it without much experience.

I think so. It is pretty straight forward and comes with everything you need to hook it up. I find going slowing and doing some research before I start really helps. Lots of posts on here on how to access it. I am not very mechanically inclined and have done all the mods on my bike by myself. The satisfaction of doing it yourself is priceless. I would have paid the dealer over $1,000 to do what I have done on my bike for free and enjoyed doing it. If you want to take a road trip to Phoneix, I'll give you a hand

No, and this is what Harry @ Motodynamic said.

The evo tech and DP kits are much nicer IMHO thus the price they are going for. Ours is just bare metal with antirust coating. Nothing fancy.

You'll be happy you install them both at the same time. I did it that way, and the install basically goes hand in hand, and you won't have to mess around with taking off the stock turn signals, etc. There is a very good how-to on this site somewhere on the Evotech install, highly recommend looking at that before/during your install. It helped me greatly.

Overall it took me 90 minutes, but I took my time. After doing it once, I could probably have it done in half the time. The hardest part for me was removing the plastic nut from the seat lock mechanism.

Knows if you and Fiona have been doin' it !
