    I'm after a tail tidy for a 2017 Honda VFR800F (8th gen). Does anyone have a suggestion? I can't find one anywhere.

    I just made a custom one on my VFR. Just cut off the stock fender / license plate bracket and and make an L bracket to mount the plate. I have no light on the plate but I've never had an issue with that with the police.

    I was going to buy a this fender eliminator / license plate hider from trydeal but making one just seemed way cheaper lol

    Go to your local hardware store. Pick up a couple L brackets and you're done. $5 tops. And you can't even tell. I elected to keep the reflectors for visibility and used them to mount the L brackets to the bike instead of new bolts. The plate mounts directly to the other side of the L.

    This is how they connect to everything. The reflectors hold everything together really. You can use regular bolts if you want to do away with them. Then the plate is held on with ordinary reflector mounts. [​IMG]

    Does the top of the plate cover the rear reflector, or sit just beneath it?

    What exhaust is that? I love how it shows off the sweet SSSA! That’s the only regret I have with going to a Two Brothers, but when I was looking for aftermarket I couldn’t find a shorty.

    It is the Coffman shorty exhaust. IMO the best looking and sounding one for the 8th Gen. Though really it would fit on a 5th or 6th as well with the caveat that on the 6th you would be getting rid of the under tail.
