Today I have installed one of these:

It is a really good bit of kit and at £25 very reasonably priced.  I think the likes of R&G and others are charging stupid money for similar offerings.

It is robust metal, well painted and includes a led number plate light plus all the fasteners required to fit it to the bike.  It is compatible with the Tracer's existing indicators as well as aftermarket versions.  The bikes existing wiring is used intact apart from cutting the number plate light cable at the number plate light end to fit the new number plate light.  The kit also makes use of the first bracket attached to the underneath of the bike.  The rest of the tail unit goes.

Happily it is also compatible with my Yamaha semi-rigid panniers.  A couple of pics below.

The tail tidy looks good!  I agree with you on some of the manufacturers outrageous pricing, the Yoshimura tail tidy comes to mind at $120!

I bought a Generic Tail Tidy  for $32 shipped.

Ha, your giant euro tag can double as a mud flap. 

I don't know about giant.

The Swedish standard is 17 cm x 15 cm and according to Google, the US tag measures 18 cm x 10 cm.  So there´s not what you'd call a huge difference in size.  Still I'm quite happy for my plate to double as a mudguard as it keeps the bike clean.

Have been looking at that but i doubt it wll work on the GT model because of the hard luggage.

Would you be able to take a birds eye view of the tail tidy please so I can see how the indicators sit in relation to the oem arm?

The indicators sit in the same vertical plane as the rear tail light.  The distance from indicator tip to indicator tip is 38 cm.
