No problem

The rearsets came from ebay, there's more that look the same but cheaper, the stock ones look cheap and mismatched to me, they had to go!

The hugger was ordered direct from Powerbronze UK. Think it looks good but functionality is rubbish, you need to remove the small plastic part in front of the shock, so that gets covered in whatever is thrown at it, that's why I got the shock tube. I've also modded the part I took off so it could be re-fitted.

Tail-tidy came from BS-Motoparts in Germany, plates over here should be 9"x7", mine is 8"x6" and still looks massive! You can adjust the width for the indicators, and the reflector at the bottom is also adjustable.

Hope that helps!

Hey thanks for the heads up on BS-Motoparts - they have a nice blue rear hugger that I'm going to order!

Last question about the tail tidy as it doesn't say on the site - will it accomodate the OEM turnsignals? I see that its adjustable too for angle which is perfect for what I want.

Had really great service from them the few times I've used them. Unfortunately the tail tidy doesn't support the OEM indicators, I only found this out when I received the item, luckily I was going to change them anyway.

Handle bar phone mount, not sure if I like it, won't be using it much so will see how it goes





Finally decided to get some better tyres on so it's up on stands waiting
