vango Posted February 9, 2015 Share Posted February 9, 2015 I did a tail tidy using the stock yamaha parts. I will post a link to a video soon. -Take off the rear passenger seat -Unclip the three wires that go to the signal lights and the taillight(I labeled each wire and it's matching wire with some masking tape to ensure I didn't mix them up when reinstalling) -undo the four locknuts -drop the wires out and remove the rear license plate bracket -Disassemble the long metal bracket from the license plate assembly (four black round screws) And remove the plastic wire retainer that holds the wires tight to the brackets underside. - I bought 4 -2" long 6mm stainless bolts -4 stainless fender washers (fender washer just has a larger outside diameter) -4 stainless lock washers 4-nylon spacers 1" long ( you could use aluminum as long as the inside diameter of the spacer is 6mm) I found these at a local hardware store. The nylon spacers hold the licence plate bracket away from the underside of the pillion so the plastic shroud doesn't get crushed when bolts are tightened. -The bolts and washers drop in from the topside. -the nylon spacers slide onto the bolts from the underside. -then the bolts thread into to threaded holes on the licence plate bracket. **** see info below Tighten it all down and it will be solid as a rock. I also removed the metal bracket that holds the cheesy reflectors on the side of the bracket. ****I had to re drill the two of the four holes under the passenger seat to make them closer together ( the two closest to the front of the bike) I thought the holes would line up perfectly but they don't ! It's like yamaha does this on purpose so you have to buy an aftermarket tail I also had to dremel out some of the plastic around the relocated bolts so the plastic liner tray can sit flat. ( This gets covered by the tool kit) Hope it helps. I'll Post a video link soon. http://i1303.photobucket.com/albums/ag153/jeremyfernhout/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-02/6A83D6D0-F7A8-4D36-A6C0-20821121F762_zps7wnadlem.jpg~original URL=http://s1303.photobucket.com/user/jeremyfernhout/media/Mobile%20Uploads/2015-02/08EB0F11-3688-4DDC-99A7-CB7BDC536149_zpsnpmvq678.jpg.html][/url] Read more: http://fj-09.org/thread/220/fj-today?page=5#ixzz3RCkjCA9i Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
