PostSubject: Tail tidy (please don't hate me!)   Mon Oct 26, 2015 3:04 pm

Hi all

Have just introduced myself to the site, and I'm already asking stupid questions. I have looked through this forum (honest!) but can't find any evidence of a tail tidy available in the UK (or anywhere) for a GRiSO 1200SE. I'm obviously being a bit thick, but can somebody point me in the right direction? I'm after anything that will replace the acres of plastic that seem to come with the OEM tail-piece.

Many thanks.

Al

PS - and if anybody knows of any short, stubby, adjustable levers that fit a GRiSO, that would save me starting another annoying newbie thread!

Mine has one fitted, will try and see what make it is tomorrow. Chinese levers on eBay are pretty good. Got the longer ones myself and they are fine. Have a good search around there's a few threads about em.

Not sure if this one can be modified for a UK plate but I am extremely happy with it, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Take that to heart and measure your plate hole pattern before you order. They don't fit BC plates, which 1151 and I found
out the hard way. I jerry-rigged mine, but best to get the right one right off the hop.

See they don't hate you.........

Oakland Raiders to LA Raiders to Oakland Raiders - soon to return to LA? Is that right? Used to follow American football a little 'when I was younger so much younger than today' [ everyone sing along ]

I got one off Space Clam, a couple of years or more ago, who frequented the Guzzi Tech site, looks the same as the GTRX offering. Had no problems mounting a UK plate

I'm using [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for the turn signals and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for the license plate. Works really well.

I have the Stucchi one, which I love, but I think it's difficult to get now (Stucchi stopped trading?)

this is not my bike, just a random internet picture of a GRiSO with the Stucchi eliminator...

That's not illuminated, Midlife, is it?

I should get a photo of my set up (will try at the weekend) - yes I've wired up a little Rizoma LED number plate light which bolts onto the number plate itself. The Stucchi Carc tail tidy has a couple of holes in the tubing for you to run wires through so they stay out of sight.

This is my tail with the "GT-Rx® GRiSO Fender Elim Kit" for the turn signals and the "License Plate Relocator For CARC Drive Moto Guzzi" for the license plate.

Hey all. Thanks for the replies. Yes, Blue, it's the Oakland Raiders (for the moment - LA looms again). Grew up in North America and live and breathe all things Oaktown, and especially the Raiders.

Was hoping for a simple solution for a UK plate, but there's not much around. I can't seem to find a Stucch or Space Clam one, so will go with the Lightech solution, I think. Really like the look of Primitia's bike but not sure it'll work with a British plate. Mind you, if San Antonio keeps bidding for the Raiders, I might come over and see it in person!

Thanks all

Al.
