CRF 1000L tail tidy - anyone know of one available?
« on: July 20, 2017, 10:06:23 am »
Hi All - we are busy prepping for the outfitting of a customers new AT for him;


he is wanting a tail tidy for his Africa Twin, but the 'usual suspects' (R&G and Puig) do not have one - any ideas on WHERE I can source one?


Pic shown is off the internet....

Rockfox did a tidy on the ADA bike. But I suspect those are still in concept phase.
Live like someone left the gate open.

I simply trimmed mine back with a carpet knife. Not a proper tailtidy but still way better.

The chance of finding a 'proper' tail tidy is as close to ZERO as you can get.

There is ONE plastic from the number plate holder all the way to the rear shock.  One piece injection moulded. We did cut the back end off just about where the indicators are fitted.  A complete new 3 piece was vac formed and a LED tail light was made. ( Pic is the trail LED. Not the look that we wanted  :-[ )

Chris,
Only really looking at the pic now.  This is MUCH more than a 'Tail Tidy' It is a complete new 'back end' with seat, rear hand grip removed, new side panels etc etc.

Basically what we did for the ADA bike back.

yes - lots - and I usually try and reply the same day  ;D
[size=78%] -[/size][/size] have I overlooked one from you - if so, apologies, am battling with the sheer VOLUME of social media - Facebook+instagram + 3 major forums + then e-mail, cellphone, phone - some days I feel swamped![size=78%]

Let me know
Chris
