Contemplating a tail tidy kit for my Cafe.  Would appreciate posts regarding your experiences.

I fitted one of these and it is fantastic. Amazing value compared to other kits and very very well made. Makes most of the others look like a total rip off actually.

A play on words, or words on play
Last chapter, verse in the final act
Words well scripted, each sentence choking
Inaudible gag, blanket which suffocates
As you eat another's words, malnourished, you starve.

You pay for quality. And yes I've done the cheap Chinese ones on other bikes. Only to have them fail as the metal fatigues...

There's probably an element in label profit making, but I'll guess that they designed it, rather than just copied someone else's design which will account for some of the difference.

Yeh that one one is designed and manufactured in England and has the quality you would expect, just not the massive price.

I'm a miserable sod when paying for stuff so if I love it it must be good lol.

They all look to be extremely over-priced. Vagabond makes what I want at half the price of these others, but they don't have one that fits the RS and/or Cafe, only the Z900. I prefer re-using all stock lights and the reflectors/tie-downs. Don't want any wiring mods. Also don't want to fail my state inspection if the rear reflectors are required.  Thanks for the replies.
