Odd one - anyone got a Stucchi tail tidy?

    The holes are aft of the luggage knobs. You might be able to tell by seeing where the bracket sits in some of my before/after pics above, but I can try to take a picture of the underside and post it tomorrow if it helps.

    Thanks for the info and pics. Your bike looks boss, I especially love those indicators!

    I'll have another look at my bike but I am sure I couldn't mount it directly under the tail piece because the taillight was in the way. I'll have another look in a minute.

    Edit:

    Yeah, I tried to fit it in those holes, and the end plate touches the tail light. The backmost holes as you face the bracket lined up, the front two did not. Even if I spaced it out to be the right distance to miss the tail light, I couldnt get close to lining up those front two.

    Maybe its the fact mine is an 1100 and yours a 1200, but I doubt there would be any difference. Looks like another great idea ****ed up by Stucchi Luigi. They have a habit of doing that.

    This is the clearance (its the same both sides) with the uppermost part of the Stucchi logo touching the tail light:

    And this is the holes not lining up:

    *sigh* Looks like I'll be sticking with a pair of Suzuki brackets to hold my indicators on!

    I can't tell from the pics, but it is possible the 1100 and 1200 have different bolt patterns. Mine didn't line up 100%, but the bracket was flexible enough to brute force it to line up. I left all 4 bolts very loose until I got them all started.

    Also, the bracket does barely touch the underside of the tail light on mine. I'm getting an error trying to upload the photos, so I added them to the album link in the previous post. Hope it works out bud!

    Thanks for the pics!

    My 'Stucchi' piece has a sort of upward swoop to it, if not for that it would probably go on. Yours looks like the top stays flat. I may try to file mine down, I have nothing to lose.

    Right now, I just have it mounted with a pair of right angle brackets which doesnt look too bad.

    I think what you did looks great. Not a huge fan of the stucchi bracket anyway. It works, but I wouldn't call it an elegant addition to the bike.

    That isn't the one I have though.

    I believe that it would not pass muster in the UK anyway, unless a seperate white or white-ish light was fitted to illuminate the plate.
