Changed out my Classic's rear fender for the "Fender Eliminator Kit (Plate Light Bracket)" by New Rage Cycles -- available on Amazon. Happy with it. The kit does not come with instructions.

Assembly was pretty straight-forward.

First, you remove every screw that seems to be be holding the fender to the underside. You do not need to dis-assemble the rear signal lights, or the stretch of piping that goes under the fender all the way to the license plate; rather, it all comes off as one piece if you just remove the screws that hold that entire assembly to the underside of the seat. Also I had to remove or loosen the plastic frame-like piece that is to the left and right of the seat (under each ass-cheek) -- I removed the right one - easy, one screw and then un-pop it; on the left one, remove the same screw and un-pop it, but there's no need to pull it all the way off, which I'm not sure you can even do because it is snug with the suspension/spring.

Next, find the wires from the bike to the (i) left signal, (ii) right signal light, and (iii) the license plate light. The connections to the left and right signal lights were easy to find. The connection to the license plate wire was a bit tricky to locate -- the existing wire snakes around into the under-side and is tucked tight in a bunched-up, zip-tied portion of excess wire; so, find that, snip the zip-tie, unravel it, and you'll find the connector for the license plate light. To state the obvious, do NOT cut any wires. Just trace the existing wires and you'll find the connector for each. Then hook up the kit and re-assemble.

I did not take step-by-step pics, but here's some pics of the finished job. Good luck.

I really like how it looks. Maybe I am blind but where exactly are the turn signals?

The turn signals are the white strips on either side of the tail light. Ive got this same tidy on my UE. Had to ditch the rear fender to fit but i think I'm taking all the fenders off anyways. Its a little bit more of a job on a UE or any of the bikes that have the license plate on the bracket hanging past the tire. You have to disconnect the license plate light plug and then unscrew the clips holding the wiring to the frame and reroute it under the seat to the tail light area. Some of those clips are a pain in the ass to unscrew due to their location on the frame.

Have you had any issues with cops? I just installed the same kit last night and while I love it, the license plate is almost impossible to see a certain angles haha

I haven't ridden that much since i put mine on but the cops around here don't usually mess with you if you aren't acting like a hooligan. Ive had similar plate setups on my R1 and gsxr600 and never got bothered.

Fitted an Evotech tail tidy to my Sixty2 this morning. I started to make a video, but forgot to record the second half. There was a lot of F'ing and blinding, as I'm not mechanically minded (even for this simple task). I managed though, so anyone can do it! I must say, the bits do fit snugly together, and I had a real struggle betting some of the bolts back in. The instructions from Evotech just about did the trick for me, but in the end it's down to common sense I guess. It's obvious which bits come off the bike for good and which go back on. Just got to put the reg plate before I take it out for a spin. Also, the reg plate for this must be 7x5" which is one size smaller than UK law stipulates so I guess I can expect to be stopped by the police at some stage where I'll put on my most shocked expression when they inform me
