fj09david Posted February 7, 2015 Share Posted February 7, 2015 After a successful fabrication session @ Ryans place i received the part the other day from Ryan and completed the install this evening. Looks fantastic on the bike. Here is the write up for the process i took to install the tail tidy. Disconnect the 3 wire connectors for the turn signals and license plate light. Remove the four nuts holding the tail located under the passenger seat Remove the extension arm off the tail to expose the cable raceway to allow the connectors to slide out. This is done by removing the 4 bolts securing it. Remove the plastic washers holding the turn signals onto the tail and remove the turn signals and cables. Remove the 2 nuts securing the license plate light. I chose to use the LED turn signals that Ryan provided. They are bright and fit with the overall style of the tail. They are secured with a single nut and 2 wires fit with bullet connectors. Fishing the turn signal wires through the tail tidy was the hardest part of the install. I used a make shift fish made out of zip ties and pulled all 4 wires through the cable raceway. I used a wire connector that i found from another forum called Posi-Lock wire connectors. They are a very nice product for connecting two wires together. I cut the quick connector off the stock turn signal and stripped the cables. I wired up my signals to ensure that i had the correct signals connected to the correct connector before i secured the tail to the bike. Using the rubber and metal bushings from the stock tail for the license plate light install this into the tail tidy. Fish the light connector through the raceway. I used the lock nuts from the stock tail in conjunction with the screws and washers provided by Ryan. Tighten it up and its all set. Now go out and admire the amazing tail.
