    According to R&G-racings homepage a Tail Tidy for the Vit- and Svartpilen is (finally) on its way.

    Can´t wait to get rid of the original arrangement for the plate and rear indicators.

    Will give the bike a much cleaner and nicer look

    Very cool.

    Part of the reason I love the bike’s looks so much is that “floating” half fender though.

    I would happily dump the signals on it, and fit the plate on it a bit tidier.

    Are they only making this for 401?

    I purchased this one, waiting for it to arrive from China. The spacing on the mount is 140mm which should fit the existing holes for the grab handle. Hope it arrives soon, should be a fun little project.

    Please keep us posted! If it works, I’ll definitely be picking one up myself. There were a few similar solutions offered in the other thread, but i have been too busy to purchase or put it in so holding off until all the responses come in anyway.

    I removed the half fender with turn signals as well as the front turn signals. I installed some motogadget m-Blaze pin signals. They are small but super bright. I mounted the plate on the side with one of those axle mounts. I really like the look of the back of the back with no fender or plate over the wheel. It’s super minimal and clean. The prototype that Husqvarna showed a few years ago with the high pipe was like this. I tried to make mine similar. I will get some pictures up next week. I’m out of town at the moment but excited I found this site. 🙂

    Sounds awesome, can’t wait to see pictures! Love the m-Blaze pin signals too! Was thinking about getting them or some rizoma bar end ones.. either way the stock ones have to go.

    Hey Galavoxx:  I’m curious about the wiring of the turn signals. How did that go? Thanks.

    Sad news Maclovin: I ordered the same tail tidy from amazon, actually had to make a custom bracket for it to work, wired it up and Damn! Not enough clearance between the tire and the bottom elbow piece!

    And did u actually compress the shock to check? Thinking of shaving the knuckle piece down and tapping a few more threads if it’s close

    I did a little tail tidy this weekend. I got a side mount for the license plate and some of the basic signal indicators from amazon. Overall it was maybe $40 for everything. I bought the resistors, but didn’t end up needing them because I used the original wire harness. Fairly simple process overall. Tail tidy
