I've given up trying now.
First it was a mission to push the indicators in,without damaging it.
I think i am missing some screws as well.
Anyone know any demo videos to fit this ?

I fitted the R&G at weekend and had the same nightmare getting the indicators in the small holes, managed it in the end. I thought the Evotech was supposed to be quick and easy to fit??

The Evotech is super easy to fit. The only time consuming part is getting the stock indicators into the small holes on the kit. But this is made easier if you use a flat head screw driver to push the rubber through.

Once that part is done its just a matter of screwing it all together and then into the stock holes where the original OEM one was.

I got no video of it done or photos but it wasn't hard. What part are you having trouble with?

I've managed to fit it now however the spacers on the tail tidy does not allow the screw to be fully tight .. I think the instruction is wrong as it said to put the smaller spacer on the tail tidy piece .. Also I am left with 1 screw not used not sure if I have done anything wrong.

The screws on my spacers to the undertail are tight as original so i'm not sure what you mean buy not fully tight. I did forget to mention one thing though. The 2 holes for the smaller spacers, well 1 off them wasn't cut properly so i couldn't fit the spacer through it. I just filed the hole a touch and problem solved.

I also have 1 screw left. Not sure what its for or were it goes cause every hole has a screw in it.

Hi Oni.

I've figured out the issue. When I was fitting the metal plate to the tail tidy, the nut on the plate snapped out. I thought it wont be an issue, but the reason why the tail tidy was moving was because of this.I took it out today and hammered the nut back in position and all good.

Its one of those things, when u don't know it, it seems very difficult. Now I can fit this with my eyes closed :)

thanks

Oni,the picture you posted for your evotech assembly really helped me .Thanks.
I had the plate outside the tailtidy fitted before.
Now I have sorted it, and its all good.

No problem Farhan. Once you install one and look back you realize how easy it is and like you said can do it blindfolded if you need to do it again.

Ok, so my wife and I tried for about an hour and a half last night to put on my evotech tail tidy and could not for the life of us get past the first 3 steps of the directions downloaded off evotech's Helmet Vehicle Automotive design Technology Auto part site!

In step 1, it mentions disconnecting the rear brake light and indicators, however I see no access to these connections!

In step 2, it mentions 4 screws to be removed to take off the rear fender yet we could only find 2 of them.

Could someone please help me figure this out? I've seen people mention 45 minute to an hour install and I don't see that happening with the difficulties I'm having even locating the screws!

HELP!

Jasber, the step 1 is a bit wrong as they have put the connectors for the wiring on the 899 inside the actual license plate holder sticking off the undertail. Dismantle that first then you will see the connectors to take apart. After that the instructions are pretty straight forward.

In step 2 do you see the ones closest to the riders seat, those are indicating holes not the screws, Look through those holes and you will see an allen key screw deep down inside. you need a long allen key to get to them. Don't need to pull them out just loosen them and when you fit the evotech make sure you screw them in as you are fitting it to ensure you don't push the screws out of the holes and into the tail. As if you do that you will need to remove the whole rear fairing.

^^WHS^^

My long Allen keys wouldn't fit through the holes so I ended up taking off all the plastic bodywork etc around the rear subframe to get to them. All worked out though.

Can you tell me the size and length of the Allen key you used?

I can't remember the size of the screw off hand but its the same size as the other 2 visible ones. As for the Allen key i used, it was about 15cm long.

I fitted mine today and noticed the bracket to fix the license plate didn't initially work with my California plate. I had to make a custom bracket to make it work. Anyone else experience the same issue?

The kit comes with 2 extension plates so you can fit all types of plates (which were needed for an Australian number plate). Were those not usable as well?

Crap, I just realized I'm missing this and the LED light for the license plate. Can you take a picture of the extension plates and screws used?

Here you go mate. You can see the 2 brackets connected to the license holder with the 2 silver screws.
