PostSubject: Rear Fender Eliminator Kit - GRiSO 1200   Mon Apr 13, 2015 1:51 pm

Good afternoon, all.

Despite searching the internet wide and far, I have not been able to find a FEK for my new MG GRiSO. I would like to get ride of the plastic fender extension that holds the rear turn signals and license plate. It seems to distract from the gorgeous rear tail light.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

HLMiskelly, Check out AF1 Racing in Texas. Got mine there, great people to deal with.

Either that, or if anyone else is still looking then these guys do one that sprouts from the CARC like an industrial daisy:

I think this one divides opinion, but I personally really like it.

Yeah the Stucchi one is nice. Maybe the simplicity and the "roundness" fits better with the GRiSO?

How did you attach the indicators to the tail? Are there brackets that come with the Stucchi kit?

You can also get that bottom one in Europe from eBay:

I've emailed Stucchi asking if they will be restocking their version (this is the one I'm wanting), but am yet to hear back. Will post their response if/when I get a reply.

Finally got the AF-1 Racing fender eliminator kit installed.  I initially tried using the standard tag light but it did not allow the tag plate to angle up correctly, so I replaced it with a simple four LED light strip.

Eliminating the rear fender really cleaned up the looks of the bike for me.

Do you have a link for this kit? I've looked on their site but was unable to find it. Can you lead me in the right direction? Or do I just need to call them?

Thanks

ADAM, I found the part at the AF-1 Racing web site by searching the site for GRiSO parts. If it's any help, my order listed the part as "Lightech License Plate Relocator for MG GRiSO" and it sold for $127.99.

The machining and finish of the parts are excellent, but you are right about the price. My only guess is the relatively low quantities.

How do you like the af1 kit? Looks well made and i liked the idea of being able to use the stock signals and tag light

It was well made and easily installed. The only problem I found was that the stock tag light did not allow the tag plate to be installed at the desired angle. I ended up buying a $9 LED light bar and sticking it under the tail light. Looks even cleaner.

That carc bracket is awesome! Does the MG cycle one have the necessary parts? What/how is the plate lit with that setup?

I like that led light bar. I've seen the af1 fender kit numerous times. Today i go to look for it to order, and it's not there anymore!

Problem is it adds considerable unsprung weight to an already weighty Swingarm and in the event of a crash may break off the brake mounts from the bevelbox. Tha cases aren't available as a separate part.

Stick a tailpack or a pillion [ or both ] on, and it's all good for you! Very Happy

"I like that led light bar. I've seen the af1 fender kit numerous times. Today i go to look for it to order, and it's not there anymore!"

Having read this thread and viewed some pictures, I thought I might give the FEK a go. They weren't on the AF1 site so I contacted them and they told me they don't carry any LightTech products anymore so no FEK's. I went to GT and they say backordered......

From AF1:
We no longer deal with Lightech as their USA importer is horrible and they wont sell to us direct any longer odd, I don’t remember the GRiSO kit, but Lightech did get dropped.

Looks like I ordered my FEK from AF-1 at just the right time.
