Anyone Feel No Need for a Tail Tidy?

Recommended Posts

Guest 2wheeler
Am I the only one on this website who actually likes the stock setup for the license plate holder and turn signals???
 
It's funny to me how EVERYONE seems to want to install a tail tidy first thing on this bike. I actually like that thing hanging out there, and think it looks decent. I think that safety wise, it's advantageous having the depth between the tail light and the turn signals/plate light as well as giving greater separation between the turn signals.
 
I'm sure I might hear some scheisse over this one, but what the heck, it's the New Year.

Yes, you are the only one! It's a tumor hanging off the rear of the bike for stupid government rules.

If you want to put tail bags on the bike it may be useful otherwise its a tumor as Randy stated.

 It's nice to see someone take up an unpopular position and with a good reason. Safety is often less of a concern that appearance for motorcyclists. Good for you 2wheeler. 8-)
Having said that, I am planning some sort of modification to my rear fender. I will have reflectors and proper lighting but It won't be as ugly as stock. :D

Fear not, I actually agree with you even though I opted for a tail tidy. The separation and brightness are things I had to consider when purchasing a tail tidy, I felt there's a safety factor involved there as well but lately I feel no matter what you put on your bike or your person there's always that one moron that can still hurt or kill you.

I was in your shoes for about 6 months and the it dawned on me one day just how unsightly it is. After installing an Ermax I was really pleased with the look compared to oem.
 
Give it time my friend. ;)

There is the Genuine Yamaha Accessory Tail Tidy which allows you to adjust the length of how far the plate goes out. It also has the nice MT symbol on the plate light.

I'm another one who hated it. I personally feel it took away from the aesthetics of the tail of the FZ-07. So glad I got the Yoshimura.

Hold on, this is my first week on the internert. Is this what they call 'trolling'?

Not only am I ok with the tail as it is but I like the quiet exhaust,
not over joyed with the look of it but the sound is ok.
now the rear shock that is another story

I frankly don't mind the way it looks. Separates it from what I consider the high rear of a street bike. Love the exhaust too. HATE the rear suspension .

I've still got the stock tail and don't mind it a bit. My money will go for suspension before anything else.

I don't mind the fender at all, I think it's actually designed fairly well compared to others. Fender eliminator is just one of those things people feel the need to "fix" just like removing stock turn signals.

 Right! My sentiments exactly. It was one of the very last things I purchased for mods as sadly I was running out of stuff to change out. I knew it was only a matter of time; it was simply part of the inevitable evolution of the bike's aesthetic appeal.  
Now to save up for spiffy rearsets and full suspension.
 
Oy vey!!!

With tail tidy it looks more sporty less dorky.
