What R1200S Fender Eliminator Options Do I Have?

Looking for a fender eliminator solution for my new R1200S. Are there any solutions that tuck in the wheel well?

Thanks!

Here's an old man counseling against fender-elim.

The bike is 11 years old and was only imported one year in USA. It will potentially, adversely impact resale. And there is functionality to the assembly.

It will be a classic. Classics, for the most part, are prized for stock.

But I remember being young. I modified my Norton Commando when I was your age, to the point where it could no longer be recognized as a roadster.

I'll shut up here and resume my nap...

Edit:Just woke up.

Here's where I would put my attention. Get a header system that eliminates the CAT, consider a Booster Plug, recommend Motorex synthetic oil, wherever possible park out of direct sunlight and keep waxed (avoid paint fade), check if cam chain tensioner is the updated version, I aded a GS type engine skid plate on mine for underside protection, change the final drive oil at your upcoming 6K, get a pitbull stand so your bike is upright when parked/stored at home-- going back to my nap, again.

LOL, Thanks Mark!

Fender eliminators can be reversed. I didn't buy this bike to collect, she is here to be ridden. Ill have plenty more bikes in my life and I will tell the buyer, if I ever sell her, id they complain about a FE, they cannot buy my bike. In fact, I will probably take this to a RideSmart event or 2.

Im still figuring out what mods the bike has. Looks like I have headers along with my AKRA. Now just expecting to find a powercommander under the seat somewhere.

If you can, find one that fits the HP2S. It's designed with a little more clearance to accommodate the taller profile rear tire (190/55). If you don't you'll be limited to what tires you can run. I did not know about this so was forced to take mine off and sell it to another Pelican.

I have this one from R&G. It works great and I have it mounted to the Akra cannister.

I still have this available if interested:

FS: R12S Evoluzione License Plate Relocater Kit - NEW

This is an extra item I have. I am using the same part on my bike.
