tail tidy I will say yes too, the fit is spot on and a good solid part, didn't have to do any modifications (like I have had to do with a couple of R&G products in the past) it looks very neat and tidy the OEM indicators fit was spot on too.

Bar ends I am not so sure they are worth the money, I have had them for a while and to be honest I don't think they are. I think the only reason I have kept them is just in case it did fall and the bar end takes some of the blow I can replace them with the OEM's if anything, in terms of vibration I haven't really noticed much/any difference.

yep agree with above - had the Rhino bar ends and they made no difference (on a 2016 bike) - on the later model (2018) I can feel more vibration through the pegs and seat now at certain revs rather than bars - tail tidy by Evo is spot on !

Because I wanted to use a pair of mirrors from Oberon Engineering I had two bar end weights fabricated from stainless steel to the same shape as the originals plus and extra half inch of length to accommodate the mirror stalks. It only cost 20.00.
However, there was an added benefit that the extra weight substantially reduced the terrible bar vibrations I was getting at the mid rev range. So, result.
As far as a tail tidy, I went for the New Rage Cycles undertray set up from the USA. There is some wiring involved but I think it's the neatest solution out there. One thing, though, is that after nearly two years, the LEDs are starting to fail but the undertray is very useful for mounting other things in that area if you need and could be utilised to have ihnstalled various other LED light set ups. I tell you when I get to that point. The NRC number plate mount failed and snapped off quite quick and they did send me another but I decided to go my own route and bought one of those (sort of) cheapo Chinese ones and modified it to suit the undertray.

Clearly I have too much time to waste in isolation.
Your number plates in the UK as almost the size of an A380 aileron.
No wonder you need a tail tidy
Huston we have lift off.

Evotech bar ends are a good improvement over the standards in terms of extra weight and finish, worth it Id say.
I have the R&G tail tidy, but think the Evotech looks better due to the plate angle and less protruding indicator mounts.

You're not wrong my friend.
It's probably an old law dating back to when Benz invented the internal combustion engine. Most of Europe seems to have small plates for bikes. But not us. Ands the law are quite strict. Even though we have tech that means they can read a plate from miles away.
