2021 r&g tail tidy...
on: August 14, 2021, 03:11:18 PM
Hey,

My bmw garage recommended Evo Tech tail tidy due to all of the relevant holes etc being in place. Unfortunately they have sold out.

Does anyone have experience with the r&g one? I'd assumed it has been specifically designed for the 2021 model with the relevant holes etc but just checking. There are no pictures available on their site unfortunately.

Thanks

My 2014 bike came with an R&G tidy and Iím very disappointed with the quality, it looks cheap and aftermarket, the powdercoat has flaked off really badly, and there is no comparison with the evotech tidy which I had fitted on my old Street Triple which was top quality and really did look OEM.

I personally donít mind the number plate hanger on the Gen 1 bikes, at least it stops all the shite from going all over your back. I have got an unused OEM hanger which Iím tempted to fit.

Ah interesting. I may just wait a few extra weeks for the Evo Tech in that case.

I've had good experiences with evo tech rad guards, fork protectors etc. Fit and finish and function all excellent
Not used a tail tidy though

I've just fitted a dbmoto tail tidy bought off eBay, took a bit of a gamble on it but looks good, gets good reviews, cheaper than R&G too, pretty straightforward to fit as well. No complaints here.

The EvoTech Tailtidy is absolutely solid. They secure the indicators well, too. The R&G one i found to be flimsy/cheap.

Definitely worth the wait, imo.

Evotech is in stock again. Just bought one. Get it while they still have them!

Their message me email when available form is kinda broken and didn't get an email. If it wasn't for me obsessively checking their site everyday, I wouldn't have known they were back in stock.
