So far, I've installed a fender eliminator kit and replaced both front and rear signals. Each signal set cost me about $10, and the fender eliminator bracket was $20. Photos to follow. Please add any of your lown cost mods here too :)

Where did you get your fender eliminator kit? I only see ones for like $90, it has a license plate mount right?
I got a universal fender eliminator bracket. had to get a metal plate from Home Depot to modify it though. I'll post more detailed pics of mine on here tonight.

Would anyone be interested in purchasing the fender eliminator kit from me for $60? I'm thinking of building a few to sell. $50 without the turn signals.

They're by K&S, but they retail for about $50. I'd just go to your local dealer and find flush mount signals for an R6.
Cassie.
Thanks for the info. I went ahead and found a few sets on ebay for the R6 for 30ish dollars so ill probably pick those up. Any more info on them? Do they need any kind of extra electronics to get them flashing properly and do you lose the day time running capability?

Thanks!

You'll need the resistor kit if you want to keep the running light function, and if you want them to flash at the same rate. If you don't get the resistor, then it will flash quickly.

I personally would never, ever, use resistors. They can get hot enough to damage the wiring harness and surrounding parts, even cause fires. The simple solution to this is to buy an LED specific flasher relay to replace the stock one, that will eliminate the "hyperflashing". I got one for $10, and cheap led turn signals for $15. Here's a link to my install thread including where I got the parts.

And, no this is not an FZ-07, but a close relative.

I like your fender eliminator kit. And the front signals. Where'd you get them? I'm waiting for the integrated sequential tail light kit. It's so nice and although it's $90, there will be no actual tail lights sticking out

I built my fender elim kit using a universal fender elim bracket and some parts from Home Depot. Front signals are by K&S, but any flush mounts for an 06 and newer R6 will work perfectly. Any R6 signals use the same factory connector, so you don't have to cut any wires.

I did not use resistors on mine. I'm not worried about having running lights, or the speed at which they flash. I'm with you on not using them lol

I'm glad you didn't use resistors. Forgot to mention that you can keep the running light feature using a product called "blinker genie".
