Mustard Bikes Ninja 300 Fender Eliminator

Just got it in the mail today, going to install on my wife's bike sometime this week. I will definitely take pictures when it's done. Has anyone installed this particular part?

We did our own tail tidys using L brackets and hardware from Home Depot, but only as a temporary solution. I put an R&G tail tidy on my 2012 Ninja 650 a couple weeks ago. The nice thing about that, is there is a place under the seat where you can disconnect the signals and lights. This makes installation easy because you can work with the lights and then string them back into the tail when you're ready to mount. From what I saw on the 300, all the wires are attached - and seemed pretty tight as well. Any advice on this particular part?

Here are some pictures of the part, they're huge so I won't embed them.

If you dont want to cut the wires you are going to have to take the bike apart so you can unplug the wires on the other end..

Gotcha. How much of the bike is coming off, in that case? Seat, fairings? Or are we actually dismantling parts? Just want to get an idea of what I'm in for prior to starting. Really trying to keep the mods clean and reversible.

I think you can get away with just taking off the riders seat, a metal bracket under it, and the small center plastic fairing in between the front and rear seat..

I had to take off the whole rear end on mine because I had to replace the turn signal relay..

I'm also using the Mustard Bikes FE. Very easy set up, only need to remove the rear seat undo 4 bolts inside and snip wires. Mine was for stock indicators, a screw, brackets and some bad words got them off the stock fender. Then reverse process for fe kit (bad words included), bolt it on then solder.
You can see the screw and bracket in this pic.

yeah i see them. so you just cut all the wires under the pilion seat? im gonna probably figure it out once i have the seats off, want to try to do it as clean as possible.. but looks like im gonna have to splice anyway.

Yeah i need to tidy it up a bit when i get a chance. The wires are abit tricky as there is no play and i have fat fingers. When you have it apart you'll see where you want to go with it.

Mustard FE Install

Hey Guys,

Just got my Mustard FE in the mail, now how the hell do i fit it??? How far back up the bike are the clips on the indicator wires so you dont have to cut them? or should i just cut them all and splice?

Cheers,

Nick
