One of the first mods I was considering was taking out that ugly license plate base and installing a smaller one.
After checking it out I found out that in order to do that you have to cut the plastic cover under the rear fender, cause it is one piece and I am not willing to destroy it.
Any thoughts on this?

I'm waiting for a Yoshimura fender eliminator kit with turn signal brackets. Hope they come out with one for the XSR 700 and XSR 900. Guess the XSR 700 is still new so we gotta wait for aftermarket parts to catch up.

There will assuredly be a tail tidy kit that comes out. There always is. I don't even get why they make bikes like this. Everyone likes the look of the tail tidy kit better. They should just sell them that way to begin with.

Someone could always fab up something with parts found at the local hardware store, and best of all walk out spending $20.
I checked it out man, I am a bit of a gearhead, bought a cheap universal tail tidy at 30 euros, but the plastic cover under the rear fender is a whole piece going straight under the seat. I don't want to cut it, I want the original parts to be undamaged.

I'd just make sure that you get a kit that you know works. They are available for almost every model of bike so I'm sure there are a few out there to choose from.

Check this out!

http://www.barracudamoto.es/moto/yamaha/xsr-700/gdf.html?___store=barracudamotoes_es&___from_store=barracudamotoes_gb

Available soon.
A little bit expensive, but hopefully it solves the "plastic cover underneath the rear fender" issue.
A bit up their in price but worth it since there's nothing else to think of unlike those universal kits or anything else. Worth the time you'll save and that's one thing we'll never get back, time!

Hopefully more companies come out with eliminator kits just for the range of choice.

Seems nice, the only thing that troubles me is how they replace the plastic cover underneath the rear fender or they just remove it and everything is out in the open
I like this one... but the instructions on ermax website are not clarifying if the plastic underneath the rear fender must be remove .

Thanks for this thread! Just ordered the Evotech option. Install seems straightforward.
