Swing and a miss

I ordered a mini fender from a website,, and thought I had my fender eliminator needs all figured out. After getting it, taking off the stock fender and mocking the new one up, I decided I didn’t like it. It’s now been returned and I have a custom FEK in its way. I’m going for the LED blinkers and have to figure out how a flasher relay works.


Here is the mocked up mini fender. I just couldn’t get on board. I’ve seen other people who have done a decent job with this fender and I was way excited to get this mounted but seeing it in person it just looked cheesy. It’s a plastic dirtbike/supermoto universal fender that can work with a Triumph. It left a big hole under the seat, not covering all the original area from the fender. I’m anxious to get the ugly fender and massive blinkers gone…I am…but I just wasn’t feeling it.
