Hotbodies TAG Fender Eliminator Kit Honda Grom MSX125 The Honda Grom MSX125 packs more fun per dollar with a style that suits anyone. This sporty little ride turns the streets into your playground with its big attitude and nimble handling. Hotbodies Racing is thrilled to introduce their personal touch to giving you that true street fighter look with this awesome canvas. Hot Bodies Racing is proud to present the TAG Bracket, a fender eliminator kit for the modern sportbike. This is not your father's fender eliminator, this kit is constructed of durable ABS plastic that is channeled and louvered for extra strength. Due to the molded construction the products shape is more complementing to the bike. No more kits that look like cheese graders or heavy metal brackets. The TAG bracket will look like it belongs on your bike and eliminates the OEM fender.

Installation of the TAG Bracket will eliminate the OEM turn signals.

Cheap plastic does not match stock tail in color or texture.

I'm amazed that a company can charge over $100 for a part that should cost no more than $10 at the very most. Yes, it DOES look good once it's installed but it's just a thin piece of plastic. It doesn't even match the existing black plastic on the underside of the bike. This product is somewhat bumpy and more shiny than the existing, low sheen smooth plastic which is stock. And this product feels thin and brittle, not thick and semi flexible like the stuff Honda used.
To remove your plate, there are no captured threads for the bolts. This means you have to remove the entire thing from your bike to get a wrench on the nut on the back to remove your plate.
I do like the look but the execution is weak and overpriced.

Commuting year-round in Portland, Oregon, I see a lot of wet days and a lot of days with huge swings between high and low temperatures. Even on the days when it's not raining, it may be 40 degrees F in the morning and above 80 in the afternoon. This jacket fits the bill nicely.
I'm about 5'10" and 185 lbs. The size Large is possibly a bit big but I wanted room for an extra layer for winter weather. The interior zip-out liner doesn't add a lot of warmth but it's easy to layer a fleece jacket underneath in the morning and then stuff the extra jacket in a backpack or a sidecase for the ride home.
The jacket is very waterproof and windproof, even at freeway speeds, and the vents do a great job flowing air once it warms up and stops raining.
The only thing I didn't love about the jacket is the basic back protection is pretty flimsy. I installed a Knox back pad from another jacket for more piece of mind.
Yes, there are certainly jackets out there with more features and I considered some higher-end touring gear from Rev'it, BMW, Aerostitch, etc. but I'm glad I went with this jacket. I'm not honestly riding 10-hour days in a third-world country for weeks at a time. I'm commuting on pavement less than a half hour each way. This jacket is solid and reliable and is perfect for what I need it for. It's a lot of jacket for less than $200.
Yes, I recommend this product.
