R & G Components

Following earlier postings of the disaster with the MC Corse tail tidy.
Today R&G fitted their unit, very neat and light and the micro lights are a improvement on the OEM.
Also fitted, the spindle sliders which are identical to the F4,

Front fork and handlebar protectors, rad guard and side crash bobbins (it is not necessary to drill the fairing), will be available in the very near future.
I have seen the prototype of the side crash protectors, very impressive

This tail tidy looks very nice too.
Seems to be premium quality, matching MV standards :-)
Mine (tecbike) is a bit simple, ordinary bent steel plates...
But I like the adjustable indicator brackets - you can align the width for every size of number plates.

This tidy is designed for Euro plate sizes. I wonder how it would work for smaller US plates? It looks like the bracket would be wider than the plates themselves. Bruce, could you measure the distance across the flat bracket area in the rear view?

The R&G tail tidy has long elongated mounting holes, which allow mounting of US/EU plates on the same tail tidy. I have it on my other bikes.

It is 8 1/2 inches, with horizontal and vertical slots for fixing the plate

Definately too wide for my taste for US plates. I'll be starting construction of my own unit soon. However this is a huge improvement on the stock piece! Too bad you all have to have those huge plates!

The number plate is 7" x 6", the 8 1/2"" width includes the brackets for the rear indicators

R&G has added some universal fitment parts today to the F3 catalog. No updates on crash protection yet.
