DIY Bandit Tail Tidy

Post by G-force on Mon 8 Oct - 0:54

I've decided to chop the OEM undertray and make a tail tidy for the Bandit...
Looks simple enough, I'll post up some pics of my progress..

Pretty much the same but a bit tidier! I'll chop off the standard air brake at the back and make a bracket to hold the reg plate. So it'll just be a bit slimmer.

Halfords! Excellent! Ok forget the DIY making of the tail tidy. But I will still have to chop off the existing number plate holder.
I had thought about fitting an undertray but I think I'd lose too much under seat storage and it would've meant chopping the luggage bar off the frame.
Royster, your DIY oiler cooler cover would be pretty easy to do. Did they have decent looking mesh? You wouldn't want it look like you'd wrapped it in chicken wire! Very Happy

Thanks for the offer Andy but I'd like one that doesn't launch my reg plate at Audi R8s on the Erskine bridge! Or flap about and cut chunks out my back tyre!

Temporarily put this idea on hold following the purchase of a bigger project!
