Got my package from www.ema-usa.com (http://www.ema-usa.com) today. Opened the box and said hello to my new R&G frame sliders and R&G Tail Tidy. So I spent a few hours of my Friday night working on my bike while ignoring my cell phone...note to self: never tell friends that you need to work on your bike on a Friday night because they will not stop bothering you and giving you sh*t.

Anyways, first up were the frame sliders. They fit like a glove and to me, were money well spent. I love the R&G's because they look different from the standard, generic looking round pucks. The brackets are very sturdy looking (more sturdy than my old Vortex brackets) and fit perfectly onto the frame. On a side note, I noticed that my '07 is much easier to work on than my old '03...probably because the fairings seem to cooperate much better and there is less usage of those stupid plastic screws. Anyways, I've included a few pics of the bracket and slider installed.

The R&G Tail Tidy was a pretty straight forward install with good directions. Just a heads up though...they do NOT come with signals and the stock ones look lame on it. Picked up a couple of aftermarket LED's like these http://www.cyclegear.com/spgm.cfm?L1=&L2=&L3=&L4=&item=MRX_LA1&tier2=14 which not only match the R&G brakelight, but are also very bright. I'm using the shorter ones BTW. As far the the brakelight itself, I feel safe in saying that it's DEFINITELY bright enough to where I am NOT compromising my own safety for looks. There is a stock rubber grommet that you should reuse for the replacement signals. The kit even came with crimps for the brakelight (you'll need four more for the signals though). The silver colored heat shields will have to go as soon as I get my CF Yoshi in a few days. Anyways, cleaned up the wires with some electrical tape and tadaaa!!!

http://www.upitall.com/Private/u/20/28/211

As for the front signals, I bought a pair of the LP Short Stalk LED's from my local shop. I'm too impatient to wait for the Gregg's. Anyways, these are much smaller and shapely than the stock frog-eyes. They look exactly like these: http://www.competitionwerkes.com/Catalog/front_signal_kit_4_2627427.htm. I was only able to find dual filaments (which basically means that they come with two wires). The stock assembly uses three wires: one for the signal to blink, one for the signal to remain on as a running light, and one for the ground. Because these LP's came with only two wires, I had to choose between using them as running lights or using them as signals. The way I see it, my headlight does more than enough as a running light soooo...signal it is!!! Anyways, they go on very easily and you don't even need to remove the fairing. All you need is a socket wrench to remove the stock ones, cut the wires (preserve as much wire as possible since it's better to have more than not enough), splice in the new LP's, and screw them onto the fairings with the provided nuts...

http://www.upitall.com/Private/u/20/28/213

One thing that is driving me crazy is that I can't get my damn bar ends off!!! The screws must be frozen onto the bar-ends themselves because I can't budge them. I'm about to go to the dealer and pay them to install my Renthals...how lame is that?!? Anyways, read from Paul's thread about how much he liked the Renthals so decided to go for the change. I have small hands so the smaller diameter might work better for me.

Here's a shot of my bike after installing the new stuff, removing the silver stickers from the front and tail, removing the reflectors from the forks and tail (I NEVER ride at night), removing the passenger pegs, installing the solid black PUIG double bubble (read too many stories of melting guages...this one is completely solid so you can't see through it at all which is okay because I never look through my screen during a speed tuck anyways). If you're wondering what that white thing is on the black fairing, it's just a decal (felt like I needed something there after I removed the CBR stickers).

http://www.upitall.com/Private/u/20/28/214

Now I'm just waiting for my Yoshi CF, Pazzo levers, and seat cowl (should be here within a few days). Then a PCIII, Gilles rearsets (if they ever come out with some), some BSK wheels, Galfer wave rotors and brake lines...got a few trackdays starting in May so no time to waste!!!

nice! did mine tonight too. did you notice any slight rubbing of the lower fairing with the R&G brackets?

i agree that working on the 07 is a breeze. my 06 fairings is a bitch to take apart. :tard:

would you mind taking more photos of the tail tidy? i was at EMA today and was thinking about picking up a set as well, but decided to wait and see it installed in person.

good job man.

Great write up bro, thanks very much. The R&G Tail Tidy is by far the cleanest I've seen thus far and your comments regarding its performance have convinced me that this is the way I will go. The set up with those aftermarket signals is perfect, awesome choice.

Funny you mention the Greggs, those are the ones I'm going to wait for for the front.

Regarding the bar ends, you have to hold them in place with your hand and then back off the screw being careful to not strip it. http://www.600rr.net/vb/showthread.php?t=73431

is the R&G fender eliminator an entire replacement of the stock rear black bracket fixed to the subframe? or is it just the part of the light?

Slowest_One, I did not notice the rubbing until you mentioned it...you're not alone...but it is very slight...not enough to even bother me. Here are some more photos of the tail tidy during the day...hope it helps you make a decision. As for me, I'm far too impatient to wait for different options but I'm pretty happy with the gamble I made here...

why don't you use the same Motrax (cyclegear) signal lights for the fronts too? Also, did you have to use some rubber spacers to cover the hole up a little bit when installing those aftermarket signals? Post some pics of the tail tidy ON (braking)

Thanks Rayzorman,

As far as the Puig screen...mine fit pretty flush (even towards the bottom) and there is no vibration (I can vouch at this point up to 120mph). The screen seems very sturdy and is slightly thicker than the stock (I don't know if this is because it is the solid black version). The wind protection was improved...not much but it IS noticeable. Here is a sideview of the screen (a little cloudy here in San Diego today so it's kinda dark). The pic is a little crooked so it doesn't show the increased angle too well. BTW, the little R&G sticker on the fairing came with the Tail Tidy...

Did not get the covers...without the covers, there is going to be a small hole that will be open but not very noticeable and definitely not an issue if you wire everything correctly and use heat shrink to waterproof (if you ride in the rain). With my black fairings, a tiny black hole can't even be seen.

I think I understand what you're asking...the kit is attached to the stock black bracket and replaces everything that used to be attached below it.

I used different ones to match up with the bike better. If you take a look at the pics/links, The Motrax lights have little pixels on the lenses that match well with the little pixels on the Tail Tidy brake light. The LP lights are simply clear lenses that match better with the clear lenses of the headlights. There is no reason why you couldn't use both on front and back or vice versa. Just my way of doing things...to each his own. You could use some rubber spacers for the front but there is none needed for the back since you will reuse the stock rubber grommets from the old fender. I'll try to post some pics with the brakes on later.

How much higher is the Puig over the normal screen? When I'm hunched up on the tank and look down at the tach (stock screen) the screen blocks the top of the tach. I'm wondering if the "bubble" on the Puig will allow for more sight clearance???

Very cool bike...thanks for the replies...i dropped by 3 Cycle Gear today for some signals...they were all out...Jesus Buddah Allah Christ!!!! I guess I'll ride on stocks for a little longer until Cycle Gear restock their stuffs.. BTW, I think you can have both running lights and signal by adding a relay to the system. I also read that if you wire both driving light and signal wire together, the light will be on and when you turn the signal, it'll blink...

Yes, it will allow more sight clearance (my guess is probably about an inch more)...I wouldn't have kept the solid black screen without the increase in sight clearance for the exact reason.

Thanks for the reply. the rubbing does not bother me at all as well. I just placed some clear 3M sheet at the rubbing points for good measure.

the R&G Tail Tidy is the best so far. since EMA has it on back order, i'll wait a while. Aside from the R&G sliders and fork protectors, all i've done is put on some Frentubo steel braided lines. Brake bite is off the hook!:rocker:
