Tail Tidy Number Plate Holder

Recommended Posts

Sorry guys, it needs to go  😞

It is floppy and ugly and sticks out and risks getting damaged.

 

Any ideas? There are lots of aftermarket ideas for the MT07 and 09.

 

Will they fit or must we wait???

 

I want something neater and stronger but lighter yet still hold the blinkers and number plate.

I'm not intend to tidy up the tail. At all. As much stuff it is there the less I get on my back...😎😁

Hi there,  yes I saw it but it is still too big - it sticks out the back same as the original.  I looked at MT07 solutions and they are very neat.  🙂

Nice video link erey, looks like he's done a good job.

 

For my money though, for any bike I was to own, especially one to be ridden on wet dirt roads I would want the tidy to reach at least to a vertical line above the rearmost of the rear tire so I don't get a wet dirty back whilst riding. From what I can tell Yamaha have done a great job of designing the rear end to keep the rider and their gear dry so I would keep that in mind when modifying the bike.

Exactly and the tail of the bike is for the 790 riders to look at :)

That rear end weighs a few kilos, so it must go! Someone will create a suitable tail tidy that weighs nothing cost little and doesn't cover you in mud.

The list of items on the T7 that can be removed or reduced in weight is getting longer. My goal now is 190kgs, and I think that is possible without spending a lot of money.

It might look good. But it's not very usefull. The tyre will hit the number plate.

Should have our tail tidy in production shortly, next thing to go onto the laser. Just waiting for a repair on the CNC brake press this week to fold them up. 

Its long enough to stop mud being flicked up and it very strong as well.
