    Tail Tidy Advice - 2019 Factory

    I'm looking for advice on a tail tidy for my new Tuono. Are there any of them that don't spray your back when riding on wet roads?

    I like the looks of the Evotech and possibly the Yoshimura so far.

    I'd say no. The stock one is just as bad though; sprays your back anyway.

    The whole point of a tail tidy is to eliminate the tail, the thing that is supposed to stop roosters tails. Id personally pick what you think looks the best, and roll with it. (MotoDynamic kit is less popular but is built like a brick shit house, is pretty cheap, and is straightforward to install. would recommend)

    Agreed. Get what looks good. I rode through the rain when I had the stock one and my back was soaked. I went with R&G.

    The OE license plate holder does a pretty poor job at keep the spray off your back, installing a tail tidy makes it worse...

    if if you want to eliminate the spray look at doing this... works very well...

    How to retain fender benefits without a fender... gg.

    The only solution is to either install another rear wheel hugger or ride 2-up. ;-)

    So it looks like the are really only 2 options, ugly and dry or soaked. I'm glad my jacket isn't a light color. Guess I'll give the Evotech a shot.

    I got the Yosh, because that's what they had at the dealer when I bought my bike.

    Looks good, installation wasn't as easy as it could have been, due to it coming in so many pieces.

    Luckily, it doesn't rain much around here, so I don't worry too much about that, but every time I get off the bike, there's gravel on the seat where my ass was.
    You don't need to earn my respect.
    I give it freely.
    Whether or not you keep it is entirely up to you.

    I just fitted the J tech one off eBay, it was only about £25. Saw the Evotech one fitted to a bike at the dealers yesterday & it’s a better part, because the licence plate lamp is better & the J tech leaves a big hole under the seat for the wires, which lets water & grit under the rear panel, it needs a big grommet which wasn’t with the kit.
    The Evotech has a much smaller hole.
    Both will result in a wet arse though.

    I had the Evotech fitted to my bike, but I never felt it was a big improvement over the stock... so today I decided to take the Evotech off and put the OE back on. I did cut off the part below the plate that had the little red reflector, that cleans it up a bit. Also fitted Aprilia LED turn signals and had heaps of space to stuff the excess wiring... Should have saved my money and not bothered with a tail tidy in hindsight...

    I have to admit it's growing on me; definitely an improvement over the stock tail.

    I've only had my bike a week and usually fit a tail tidy, I have already ordered evotech goodies but debated over the tail tidy, kept looking at the stock tail and come to the conclusion its not bad at all compared to most modern bikes so keeping stock.

    Interesting. Kinda reminds me of an old swing-under bicycle stand.

    I've got the Evotech tail tidy and clear taillight with integrated turn signals. Mine looks pretty tight but the license plate hanging down looks like ass.

    If you buy the Aprilia one from the accessories pdf it's adjustable, you can adjust the angle of the plate until you like it and then you can re-adjust the angle of the indicators to keep them level. Click image for larger version.
