  • insurance and fender eliminators

    Hey guys,

    Did a search but didn't seem to find anything regarding FE's and insurance... sorry if this has already been discussed...

    Basically, I just ordered a fender eliminator, and I know that I can get a yellow sticker for having one, but I was thinking, does that mean that 'technically' my bike isn't street legal, and if something happens, the insurance company can refuse to pay out?

    It's only any issue if you are wearing a non AS approved helmet.

      short answer: it's only ever a problem if it causes or contributes to an accident.

        Only if - The end of your fender eliminator is in line with or past an imaginary line drawn at 180 degrees throught the centre of your rear & front wheels.

          Aside from things flying up off the back wheel, is that possible? Sorry in advance if that's a stupid question...

            Anything is possible, but I've never heard of it happening. The main worry is the extra attention from police, most of the time they will automatically give you a yellow for it.

              insurance will only not pay out if the illegal mod was directly the cause of an accident or claim.
              Otherwise ur fine, i cant really think of any way a FE could directly cause an accident, bar mayb a rock getting flung up by ur wheel and hittin ur head causing you to fall off?
