    Nice project for some geo locations, like Fl or Ca.
    Just out of curiosity, why did you keep a spray nozzle - it is useless without wiper, but affecting aerodynamic flow to some extend )))

    I was riding on a highway with somebody in a 4Runner. He used the rear sprayer and the motorcyclist behind him was NOT happy! :eek:

    The spray nozzle is at least unobtrusive.

    Looks great! I've been wanting to do this as well. I removed the door side moldings on my gen 4 touring. Your mod will be next.

    I searched for quite a bit yesterday and came across a few delete kits. All these come with a seal of some type. The ones that caught my eye were
    -OEM honda wiper delete rubber plug, cheap but I didn't the idea that someone could just pop it off.
    -OEM honda rear wiper delete kit that actually consisted of a nut/bolt/plug type
    -Passwordjdm makes ones in different colors, but I personally do not like the logo etched on there.
    My choice is the one from ECS tuning for its simplicity and how clean it looks IMO.

    Probably not--first, it's situated within the wake of the antenna; second, even if it wasn't, it isn't tall enough to protrude through the boundary layer and affect flow in any significant way.

    They charge extra to remove the rear wiper and spare tyre. The do put extra air in the other tyres though.
