Anyone done a tail tidy on 2011?

I am trying to figure out what to do for a tail tidy on my 2011 S3. If you have done one to your 2011 could you post up some pic's? The only kit for a 2011 I have found is the Ermax, but I kind of like the Werkes and am waiting to hear if it will fit a 2011. The pic's on most of the sites kind of suck, so hopefully I can get some better ideas from those of you have done it.

Thanks guys.

Think carefully about a tail tidy. It might improve the look of the rear end, but I fixed one to my 2007 Speedie and got muck all up my back evertime I rode in the rain!

Yeah, I have been fighting with that fact. My Buell was the most miserable bike to ride in the rain, I would really like to NOT do that again. But the stock "fender" is incredibly horrible, I want to puke everytime I look at it. I don't understand how Triumph could make such a beautiful bike and then slap on part of crane or bridge and think it looks good.

I'm currently working on fabbing one up for my own, should be done this weekend with a little luck.

Here's one that I like,but more than I want to spend at the moment.

I have that one. It's an easy fit and excellent quality but it does leave the area where the old tail used to be attached to open, so I'll have to figure something out for that.

Goozbomb and J3T - The add says you have to use the indicator adapters. No problem fitting the stock indicators without it?

Could one of you guys take a picture of the area that remains open with the R&G eliminator and post it up?

There are quiet a few tidy's out there.

LSL : costs about €100 but doesnt look that good.
Evotech: looks good but the way the orignal indicators can be mounted looks akward.
R&G: looks good but apperently has some holes like j3T said.
Rizoma : Best looking one out there but the indicators are mounted midway the licenseplate holder.
