Yoshimura Fender Eliminator Kit Suzuki GSXR 750 / GSXR 600 Yoshimura has always been synonymous with quality craftsmanship, precision fitment, and impeccable quality. Their newly designed Fender Eliminator Kits are no exception, and they are sure to give your bike the sleek race look that every rider craves. These kits feature a precision laser cut stainless bracket that tucks discreetly under the tail section of the bike, as well as a premium CNC machined light holder which houses 4 LED lights. The light housing is anodized black and laser etched with Yoshimura's logo. Completing the kit is an anodized aluminum license plate frame which features a silk screened Yoshimura logo. Note Please check local laws before purchasing. Some modifications may be prohibited in some states.

The Yoshimura Fender Eliminator fits my GSX-R750 quite nicely. Installation was a breeze: pop the cowling & seats off, remove OEM fender, snip the light, connect the Yoshi LED light, and assemble the whole thing.
I opted to solder the connectors from the Yoshimura LED to the stock wiring harness, for a more robust + easily repaired connection as opposed to the crimp-style connector included with the kit.
It's a bit pricey for what is essentially a bracket, small LED light, and license plate frame, but the fit and finish is excellent and the material quality spot on.

I love the Motul chain clean! Simpler and more convenient than kerosene, and does just as good a job of cleaning the chain. Spray on, wait about 5 minutes, agitate with a brush, and do another quick spray to rinse. Your chain will shine!
Remember to allow the cleaner to dry afterwards though - you want your lube to stick to that nice shiny chain.

Love my GP-R! I picked up the black + white in a size 48 EU (US 38), and it fits like a glove. I'm 5'10", 165, athletic build.
Leather is light but not thin, and the perf scheme is great. Better than my Dainese Laguna Seca suit, which is saying a lot - this jacket flows so much air. Great for the SoCal heat! Thankfully I haven't been down in the jacket, but the armor is in just the right places and doesn't move around at all, both on and off the bike. 3/4 zip to attach to leather pants. All good.
Deducted a style point for way too many bright white A-Stars logos. A reflective black on black "stealth" option would be fantastic.
I dig the lack of a hump as well - makes the GP-R a great commuting jacket, as I can throw my loaded backpack on the back with no discomfort or awkwardness at all.

Made on the basis of the best of AGV racing experience, the GP-Tech combines safety, ventilation, and perfect comfort with an extremely innovative and aerodynamic design. GP-Techs design is the most innovative in the market today, and its assertively modern lines clearly distinguish it from its competitors.

Absolutely love this helmet. I bought it during a winter sale, on a whim - I am typically a Shoei guy through and through.
I found sizing to run a little large - in Shoei or Arai, I'm typically a Large, but on the GP-Tech, had to go to a medium to get the fit right. Fit was a little snug, but broke in nicely within a few weeks.
Build quality is MOSTLY superb - the shell and interior are gorgeous - it's like the Ferrari of helmets. Really like the interior liner - it wicks nicely and feels really protective. The helmet itself is VERY light. Lighter by far than the RF-1100, RF-700, and Bell Vortex that I also own. Visor has a cool ratcheting system, and pinlocks that work fantastically! The GP-Tech also comes with a great padded bag you can tote it around in.
I say the build quality is MOSTLY good because the ratcheting visor mechanism is finicky and weak. Mine broke when changing visors for the 3rd time - after owning the helmet for 2 days. AGV customer service was very responsive and sent me a free set of replacement hinges. And some stickers and extra tear-offs.
Helmet is a little noisy at speed, but nothing major - I'm comparing it to other race-style helmets. Seems noisier than an Arai.
I've had the GP Tech for 6 months now, and have ridden in it all 6 of those months. It's held up nicely - a few rock chips here and there, but that's to be expected. i get comments on it all the time, from people that like the color, and graphics. Plus it has dogs on the back! Everyone likes the dogs.
Yes, I recommend this product.
