Quick question to all the track pros out there. I have this CF tail, but obviously it doesn't come ready to mount the attachment hardware to it like an OEM piece. I figure that I can mount the front hinge that mounts behind the tank okay, the CF is reinforced right there and that the screws will be covered by the seat foam. I will have another piece of seat foam inside the tail to keep the fairing in contact with the subframe where I sit, where but how do I attach the rear of the seat fairing? I can't see any clean way to mount the locking mechanism hardware...

Thanks in advance for suggestions and advice

I have John, but I'm not sure how to do it.. is there a specific kit that can be bought? Can I still use the biposto subframe?

I don't plan to Dons, i have a street kit that I am going to keep, but it will stay in storage for a much later date.

Right, then don't mess up your subframe and fittings, get another set from CAG or eBay and glue/fibreglass or similarly the fitting to the inside of your new tail.

This is how I did it years ago, and Rich recently added an improved version.

Ahh okay that will work, I have a spare set of hardware. Thanks. I would like to see an example of a tail setup with Dzus fasteners on it if anyone has any pictures.

Hi Ian

I haven't got any pictures of this set up, but the old MV factory satellite team used it on the early F4 race bikes. As far as I know there isn't any off the shelf kits you can buy and you'll have to make one..

It can't be that difficult.. You just need to put some time and thought into it.

As a starting suggestion, why not remove the locking mechanism completely ( a bit of weight saving to be had here... Andrew :naughty:) and replace the lock catch with a flat alloy fixing plate cut to the same size and shape as the locking catch..

Then weld a small length of alloy tube on to the fixing plate.

Make sure the tube length equates to the height you want the seat to sit at. ... Trial and error here until you're happy with the seat height/position and the gap between the exhaust tailpipes and the underside seat unit is sufficient.

Then attach a DUZS clip to the top of the tube... Drill the seat unit in the correct place to align with the DUZS clip ( if you put some downward pressure on the seat against the DUZS clip, this should make a depression on the seat material and leave a mark to allow you to know where to drill).

Then all you need is the DUZS fastener and a fiber washer.. Job done.

The alloy fixing plate assembly idea should be a simply set up and hopefully not difficult to produce.. You can even anodize the finished kit.

If you don't want to use the DUZS clip set up, then why not tap a thread into the end of the tube length and use an alloy countersunk screw to secure the seat unit down..

I bought some resin and fiberglass from Home Depot and fixed these nuts to the inside. Same size as the stock bolts. The flange allowed somewhere for the fiberglass to sit over, worked great. I did put some under the nuts near the middle to level them out.
