when this light first came out the ad read "no instructions included should be installed professionally." i didn't want to cut up my factory wiring so i emailed question. got no reply so i forgot about it. didn't cut blinker wires when i installed eliminator, but did cut license plate light wire. soldered and heat shrank wires. turned out to be a short in light itself, so i just unhooked the wire. plate is readable with taillight. i cut and solder wires regularly on my job.in fact i installed my own integrater on my zrx using a foreign car trailer adaptor i bought at the parts store never had any problem with it. if this is plug and play i would consider it. still not ready to cut up tailight wires though. ask questions before you buy.:confused::confused::confused:

i thought it was going to be a snap putting a rear finder eliminater kit on my 2004 Z 1000.
i have been a auto mechanic for 36 years. it was a major pain in the rear [ pun intended]. i had to take the entire rear of the bike apart to install the kit and small turn signals. that plastic rear tail section is way over designed. on the 2010 it is a snap. way better.

Will do just bought the light. Delivery is supposed to be the first week in november seems kind of long but it is coming from canada .

looked at the feedback found positive feedback about the light so it should be good to go .

i bought my elimanator from "canada" product actually shipped from hungary. sellers emailed me after i paid for item that his canadian warehouse was on vacation so my part would take sveral weeks to get here. was upset but waited for part.turned out to be for a 2009 and back had to wait two more weeks for the right one. license plate light is shorted and blows the fuse so i just unhooked it. iknow it's inthe light because i soldered and shrink wrapped them then carefully run the wires. i am trying to be more careful who i buy from.:(:(:(

cut and solder and shrinkwrap connectons off original turn signal. this is what i thought it would be. not hard but not sure about cutting up turn signal wires. will look very clean with stockers gone. hmmmmm.

thought about doing just that , but since the turn single connections are all the same on metric bikes is find some oem turn singles with the oem connections for sale cheap buy them and cut them up leaving the stock ones in good shape

ahh, didn't know that. let me know what you end up doing.
wound up using the chessy conectors that it came with just pinched them together a little at a time till I got a snug fit , then used a plastic water proof cover to go into the connector on the bike and electrical taped in all together.

kind of riged I know but will work out something better later.
