Has anyone used this tail tidy?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone mounted this tail tidy on their FZ? If so, how well did it fit and hold up? Did you have to use spacers or anything? Do your LEDs hold well to it?
 
I don't see why tail tidy kits (like Graves or Yoshimura) are $100+ dollars. Was looking for something cheaper.

I have one on mine. I got the one that match my graphite color. It was well constructed. It also came with LED lights. Fitted perfectly and I've had no issues. The LEDS work just fine still as well. Installed it in March 2015.

Sweet, good to hear. Got any pics? ;)

Ive got it on mine too. I actually purchased it without any paint or powder coating. I simply sprayed it with a similar looking coating as the rest of the accessory parts on the bike I had laying around. It was cheaper and I wanted it to match the other silver/metal accessories on the bike.
 
The ebay seller is on point too. He is very responsive and event gave me a pair of daytime running lights and a pair of the front spacers (for the hole in the front blinker housing) for free.
 
The angle of it is much better than the Yoshi (which points more vertical. This one is slanted more out to go with the lines better. I honestly could not justify twice the price for those others. This one is solid quality too. 
This is a pic of it prior to me spraying it.  As you can see, it is cut (assuming laser jet) and bent.

Nice, Thanks for the info. Yeah, I don't know why those others are so expensive for what is mostly just a bracket. I was just going to make my own until I found this one. Gonna see if I can find something that is similarly cheap (maybe a universal piece) that hides my plate a bit more, otherwise I'll probably go with this one.

This is exactly who i got mine from. The guy is awesome and communicates well.

I had even asked where he had got the turn signals because I had wanted them for the front and he responded with a link for me at the time I purchased this item. Top notch quality. No flimsy metal here.

How well does that blue match the blurple? I have been a little upset with my rear hugger & levers being too blue to match the rest of the bike.

It matches exactly. He uses the OEM color

That is perfect. If you could somehow get me a picture of it on your bike so I can see how it looks, I'm sold on that color with the LED tail lights included! I just want to make sure the extra blurple isn't overkill.

I don't know what's going on. I'm trying to post other images and it's not working. I've never had this issue before. It let me post this one image and that's it

Can you maybe put one in your second post (the one that doesn't have a picture yet...?) 
Haha wow! This is perfect! I have the Akra Carbon and that same rear hugger, so this is like the perfect preview. The blue intake vents are a nice touch. You painted your rear-footpeg mounts black?
 
I didn't like how that rearhugger's more bluish-blue wasn't an exact match to the blurple of the rest of the bike, which is why I'm hesitant on the blue eliminator... I hope you figure out how to get a pic from the back so I can contrast it!
