    With tail tidy

    Shame it didn’t last.  3 Weeks, 3 days old – got hit by a Volvo while stationary and waiting for insurance to sort it all out.  Totally gutted!!!!

    That’s the one.  The only issue is the plate that bolts to the bike isn’t wide enough.  Had to get a new wider one made at work to fit the hidden holes under the rear subframe

    i used the original indicators, and had to notch the mounts as the indicators have a peg to stop rotation.  Didnt want to drill hole for wiring so used one of the other hidden holes to pass wires through, but had to cut off connectors, feed wires through and then soldered back together under seat unit.

    The plate was made by:

    very good service and prompt delivery.  I talked with the guy about a different  size/style and he was very helpful, but he’s on holiday til 11th June.

    Turn signals are original, just rewired to the back of the bike.

    Heard from the insurance, looks like it will be repaired but dont know when i’ll get it back.

    How is your neck?  I assume it was a decent smack.  Any photos of the damage?  May we assume that the Volvo driver was texting!?

     

    sure – great tail tidy though – lol
