The back fender on my DR-Z400 is nothing but trouble, its time to get rid of it. Why do I hate back fenders? Glad you asked, here are my reasons:

  • It gets in the way when I need to work on my engine
  • Scratches easily and consequently looks terrible
  • More real estate to clean when I wash my DR-Z400
  • Limits license plate mounting options
  • No clear performance gains

So the rear fender is purely aesthetic and yet, it looks terrible. I’ve read about these fender eliminator kits that replace your rear fender, so I decided to give one a shot. Once I removed my rear fender, installation didn’t require too much elbow grease. The “non-fender” is made from stainless steel, so I don’t worry about rocks scuffing it up. Once in place, adding a license plate requires fastening with two bolts. Initially I worried about using only two bolts for my license plate, but Puig provides good sized bolt holes that give a snug fit. Additionally, the license plate holder has mounting options for turning signals. This kit is a big step towards making your DR-Z400 street-legal. I’ve been riding around with this kit for a couple weeks and have no complaints, the license plate feels as snug as it did during installation. If you’re thinking about removing your rear fender I would highly recommend this fender eliminator kit.

Here are the specs for the Fender Eliminator Kit:

  • Clean up the rear of your bike with a fender eliminator kit
  • Constructed from stainless steel
  • All model specific brackets come with turn signal mounts if needed
