Glad it's not just me that finds all the different sizes of allen keys required a pain. Top tip, get yourself a decent set as the ones in the toolkit on the bike will end up rounding the heads out as they are made of cheese.

Haha. Actually they have already damaged a few heads already. Now they are in for good.:frown2:

Great video by the way, really helpful. It looks so so much better. One quick question - what size number plate works best with this tail tidy?

Hi

I've got the evotech - plate size I run is 8x6 which still looks legal but small enough to also 'fit' the rear. I did have a 7x5 but it just looked way too small - and am sure it would attract Mr Plod!

I had a side bag but after removing this and the rack I relocated the indicators under the tail - in my opinion this is the neater look rather than having the indicators mounted with the number plate

Hi Lisbonmekat,

Mine does that too ans I don't have this Evotech tail tidy installed, but another model (S2 Concept). I'm wondering if it has been moving like that since I got the bike or not!

Any answer from other owners would we appreciated!

Thanks all!

Hi guys - my seats (I have the single and the standard) do not move after fitting the Evo-Tech tail tidy. And didn't move beforehand either. Its sometimes tricky to locate the seat catch but once its located both seats are firmly fitted. FYI - I have 1k miles on the odo' and swap the seats regularly. Hope that info helps.

Hi All,
Thanks for the great video!
Did anyone installed the EVO TECH Tail Tidy with the Akrapovic High-mounted Exhaust System? Are the flashers far enough from the exhaust exit?
As far as the seat "moving a bit up and down" I have the stock tail and it is (unfortunately) moving up and down from day one.
