R&G Tail Tidy fix
on: December 04, 2019, 06:17:41 PM
So my Tail Tidy on my 2011 STR lost a bunch of weight but the number plate,  which are pretty small in NZ since we went away from the squarish ones, did flap around a bit.

Either way it was noticed that the plastic was starting to split.  Early into a 2500km trip around the South Island.   Fortunately I got back with it in place.  I took it all off and with a cardboard template made a thin sheet steel brace out of some chromated side of a large server, but could be any steel you find.  There are ridges on plastic but I ignore those, then just bolt it all back together.

I'll post a pic when I'm on my phone later.
