Hi two40.
Really like the look of the rear end. I wanted the single seat, no rear subframe look, but have struggled to work out what to do with the license plate and rear light. This looks perfect. Can you please give us more details on the S2 tail tidy. I can't find it on their website for the XSR700? Was it easy to sort the electrics? Thanks

The two tubes are just that, hollow and designed to route your wiring. You'll need to buy Yamaha connectors unless you don't mind cutting up your original connectors.

Whichever LED's you buy you'll need to extend the wires so some soldering is required and then heat shrink them all to protect from elements and hide the colours. I routed mine up along the ABS and brake lines, up through to the battery case and plugged in to original connectors. Check out the video for some more info. Happy to answer any questions but it's all pretty straight forward.

Don't forget to buy the indicator mount as that does not come with the kit.

Brake light I used (comes with built in license light). The license plate support comes with a provision for a license light (angled bit at the top) and a license light. I cut the metal bit off as the brake light I used has a license light. I don't think the license support was meant to support a brake light as well but I always intended to do this.

The fender I cut up to fit under the seat. It's simply bolted on to existing holes.

Some more info, babbling, and poor focusing here:

+1 Really like what youve done with tail tidy, fender and a great video. Any further mods planned? Handlebars?
Cheers.

Looking at those photos the mirrors really stand out to me. Might try and find something more subtle but I don't particularly want to go the bar end route as they make the bike wider and I like to lane filter.

I'm giving the colour some thought at the moment. Would like to experiment a bit with the tank and fenders. That silver scratches so easily that it's almost inevitable I'll be painting it soon anyway.

Beyond that, air box removal is something I really want to do. Can't get the attached image out of my mind...

Nice, yeah the airbox mod is cool. Not a clue how to go about that one though. The batterey may need relocating? ...not sure.

I quite like some of the round non bar end mirrors and also some of the lower rizomas look good. Know what you mean when filtering. Luckily traffic here is fine and mostly country riding but commuting in a bigger city for sure i'd want to be narrower.

Hello two40, I really like this mod. I think I saw this bike before I bought mine (just two weeks ago) and I just knew I wanted to try this too.

Slight difference though, I would like to retain the stock rear/braking light. You say you have modified the rear fender a bit to make it fit better under the solo seat without the rear hoop attached. Is it still possible to keep the rear light when you do that?

Hi,

I looked at retaining the stock tail light. I couldn't see an easy way of doing it without extensively modifying it (ie, damaging the mould to make it fit). I'm sure it is possible if you try but the sleek look of a bare fender will be lost.

I also looked at using the stock fender and tail light and just cutting up the fender. Again, you would need to do irreversible damage but from memory I couldn't figure out a way to make the standard fender work and look good.

I bought it on eBay from a seller called Rycamotors. Not sure if they're still around or if they sell the fender. You should be able to find something similar if not. Just search for 6" motorcycle fender and pick one that looks about right. You'll need to chop it off leaving you enough length to mount it and the distance you feel is right to hang off the back. Don't forget to use rubber grommets to mount the fender. I used existing holes so the frame was not altered.

Good luck!
