Zard install help

Just got the slipons and install seems easy...

However, they came with a tail tidy because the oem plate holder will not go on these...and I can figure it out. In addition, no installation instructions. Anyone already go through this and can help?

Pics to follow

Mods - not sure this is the right place for this thread. Feel free to move

And how about the original place of the plateholder? Can't really figure it out with these pics. Post a better one of the tail tidy.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

Original plate holder fits directly onto original exhaust. These do not have mounting points or adaptors to do the same

finally figured it out...it uses the fairing mount points (the ones for the brake light mount)...nifty method but installation maunal would have been soooo helpful). Putting together now and i'll poste some pics later.

ok - tail tidy (pic 2) mounts on the 2 fairing mounts where the rear light connects. I also added a connection through the hole where the wires pass though...only plastic but better than nothing and there was room.

all OEM lights transfer directly over to the new tail tidy (pic 3)

now the question - in pic 1, you can see a bracket that is riveted onto the top of the exhausts. In the screw package, there is a nut/bolt the right size to go there....so i thought that this bracket was to join the 2 exhausts. However, as you can see, they do not line up naturally and when you add the tail tidy there is not enough space. So, what purpose do these brackets serve?

That's a good question. I don't know anybody else who has Zard, maybe your the first?
