also whats your opinion of crash bungs, are you fitting ? I may order some up now and have fitted on arrival, although have heard they can cause damage to engine block if bike dropped (not any intention to drop, but if this was to happen)

I personally think the swingarm license plate position was the best looking for the new dragster.
Why did you choose to tail tidy yours?

Thanks!
The connector is approximately 7mm square by 15mm long, male to female. If memory serves it has the option for 4 pins but not sure if all 4 are used. If I have to strip 'plan B' down to do 'plan C', then I will take some photographs of connector.

Another easy way, would be to remove the cable plate cover on the bottom of the swing arm, as the connectors are located there.

Unfortunately the rear wheel hits the 7"x5" plate in the first position tried (plan A (as photographs)). I will hopefully get to try 'plan B' today.

I believe crash bungs may help lesson the damage if dropped or crashed. The question of if they can cause more damage, than if not fitted, would depend on where they are mounted (I guess). We used to have crash bungs on our track bikes, but luckily they were never used in anger. We do not intend on fitting them to our road bikes.

We chose to tail tidy ours because we feel that it looks better.......each to their own, I guess If the tail tidies do not work out, then we may have to revert back to the swing arm plate position

Plan B works a treat. It does look far better than I thought it would and it looks far better in the flesh than the photographs show (the plate does not obscure the tail light as much as you may think it shows in the photographs). The important thing is that you can see the tail lights each side of the number plate and more importantly you can see the brake lights (which only light up on the outside of the tail light anyway).

Basically what we now have is a plate that has been fabricated (OK bent in a vice) to follow the contours and fixed to the plastic moulded under seat arrangement. Attached to this plate, at the bottom, is a 'fabricated' plate that has the original indicators fixed to. At the top of the plate is attached the original tail tidy that we previously purchased and used (which has the original number plate light attached to).

I'm mocking up a tail tidy for my 2019 dragster as well. I'm in the US, so our plate are a bit smaller.

I am utilizing the holes where on in stock form, are used for the grommets that hold up the passenger pegs when not in use.

I measured the closest holes, and ended up ordering this tail tidy for a Grom as the base:

I am using the "lower mounting bracket" piece only. I had to Dremel out the holes as the location of the holes on my bike are a bit closer together than what the bracket allows.

I am using their slim license plate light as well as a start:

Signals will be moved into the met openings in the middle of the tail light. Roger from Watsen Design made some that should work perfectly there. Still waiting for them in the mail.

This is exactly what I had in mind for mine if I didn't stick with the fender in the back, and what I was looking to explore. I'll probably do the integrated turn signals into the rear brake light though just so I can eliminate blinkers. Thanks for the post.

I was able to do integrated signals in the rear tail lights on the pre-2019 redesign because the tail light modules were two different physical lights.

With the newly designed tail section, the tail light appears to be a single light, not two separate ones. I'd love to be proven otherwise, but thats what it looked like to me when I had a look.
