Default Evotech tail tidy install

I got my Evotech tail tidy kit installed and while I was at it pulled the rear pegs. I took pictures of the process if anybody is interested.

looks very sweet. do yourself a favor and get some SMALL signals though, those stock kill the look.

I really like the look of the EVO undertail. I agree with Tbagr about the lights though.

What is the wire loop thing in the third pic?

Lookin good. Where did you get it from? All the places I have looked are out of stock. Is it me or in the 3rd pick does it not line up with the back tire? Maybe its because its leaned over.

I'm yelling at you but in a good way. PLEASE POST HOW YOU TOOK OFF THE BACK PEGS PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE !!!!.

This is an absolute must for me since I never have a passenger with me.

The out of alignment look is just from the angle of the picture. The loop is the wiring harness for the plate light- the pictures were taken as the job was in progress so I had not connected the wiring for it yet.
Removal of the rear pegs just made sense at the same time as adding the kit...all the same steps are required to prepare for the install of the undertail. Then you must continue to completely split and remove the rear subframe. The two allen bolts that hold the rear pegs can then be accessed.
I'll give a more complete description with pics from home...at work now.

Start- remove sidecovers, bolts that retain seat, rear cover or seat.

next- Drop undertail, Remove screws from crosspiece( I know they are a biatch to get at) then remove the bolt at the rear of the subframe and the bolts at the front (including the two at the rear of the tank cover). The battery box will drop when you remove the halves of the subframe. Remove allen bolts from footpegs and reassemble.
