On my RR conversion the sub frame was notched and bent up, then welded in order to maintain the strength. The tail is mounted securely to the sub frame at multiple locations. It is very strong and able to take the weight of both the rider and the passenger.


Here's the how to thread link:

There are other tails that will fit, but I'm pretty sure they all will require sub frame mods if you want the tail up and looking right. I may be wrong, but any time you put parts on the bike that weren't designed for it you will need to modify things.
