Lamonster tail tidy looks good, and I'm happy with the final product. Some thoughts for anybody that might try this. The lamonster tail tidy is cheap at around $80, but it's far less than plug and play. It's really heavy and the finish on mine was not fine, but acceptable. There are no instructions with it and it requires more than a tinker to install. You have to spot the unit on the under fender cover and drill 5 holes through the plastic (1 for wires). Be careful because there is limited space above the under fender. Removing the oem signals, plate holder, and mud guard looks easy, but is time consuming as the assembly includes a zillion components. The lamonster tidy I bought reuses the oem signals so full disassembly of oem cluster is required. Finally, the oem wiring run to the signals has to be rerouted (from swingarm area) to under the seat and into the tail section. Fishing the wire up to the underseat area was very tight, but doable. Buttoning it all up ends with refitting the finicky under-fender now with a bunch of hardware attached (it's a fit, slide backwards to catch 6 holders, then 2 screws). Good project for the master tinker looking for motorcycle titillation who wants to clean up the unique rear wheel look of their Rocket.

Nice I like the look not sure I want to go through the pain of doing it. I heard some say the plate can catch on the wheel.

Looks clear to me?

Was it a pain to re run the cables. It's snow season for me so got about 3 months before I can ride, starting to get the itch to tinker.

Go for it! Manageable install and good test of man-skill and tinker-osity. Just Rocketed 3,500 miles with flawless Lamonster tidy performance. Take your time, enjoy the project, and bask in the improvement and demonstration of you motorcycle manliness! Go for it!

Lamonster sold out... Found another unit in the UK that also comes with the washer and bolts to replace old mount.

Will see about getting that just hammered on exchange cad to UK makes it expensive
