Tail-Tidy

So I just finally ordered myself this tail-tidy http://amzn.to/2cPWAyX Is there any tricky bits that come up during the install I should note? Keeping the stock indicators, so hoping it should be a pretty clean swap?

I don't know about the Vagabond one specifically but with the turnsignals, the only thing that was tricky for me was threading the wires through the bottom of the bike as the hole was small. I think the vagabond one is a lot more straightforward than the TST one though.

There are 4 ( I think only 4) washers and spacers for the bolts under tail, be careful to not drop them when re-installing them. They will fall down into the sides of the seat plastics and can be a bitch to retrieve (you have to undo a bunch of fasteners to get them out). Even thought the how-to videos warn of this, I did it and so did my buddy.

other than that, it's just like the video shows. Post pics when you get done!

A lot of us have the vagabond tail. It is a very straightforward install.

Great video online that walks you through the install
I had mine installed even before I put any miles on the bike. Very straight forward install

I made my own how to video while installing the tidy for anyone who stumbles upon this thread and are looking to install one.
