R&G Racing Tail Tidy from BellaCorse

So after 1 month of waiting on NewBonneville to get their Cat-eye FEK's in stock, I cancelled my order and went with the new R&G kit from BellaCorse. Couldn't be more thrilled! Mike hooked me up, the kit is super great, steel cover instead of cheap ABS. Even threw a British flag in the box! Anyway, the kit installed great, looks great and really makes the bike feel like I wanted it to from the start. Anyway, I know you're all waiting on the money shots, so here you go (btw, I have some heat-shrink I'm going to put on the wires, but wanted to make sure everything wired up cleanly first).









End of story, BUY THIS THING!

Nice, clean look. Are you happy with the brightness of the Cateye turn signals?

Thanks! Those are the cat-eyes from BellaCorse (http://bellacorse.com/bcc062-65.htm). I like them alright, but I may go to LED's soon. I have LED's in the taillight, so it's not like I'm totally screwing with the tradition any more than I already am, and they won't break as often. If I'm honest, one of the bulbs in the front signals broke less than a mile from my house, so I already had to replace it. Also, the housings are plastic, so one already feels like it's stripping out while I tighten it, probably will have to go with something a little more substantial in the future.

Very nice. IMO the FEK adds the perfect balance to the smaller front mags of the SE/base Bonnies. Adds a nice aggressive look. Pretty little bike ya got there.

Thanks! The wife makes fun of me for washing it all the time, but it makes it always look great. This is my daily commuter, put almost 4k miles on it since July. I agree that the FEK really polished the look of the bike, it's amazing how it can make the whole thing look smaller so quickly. Looks way more agile and aggressive.

Davengo - I literally clean it every Saturday morning. My wife is starting to get jealous.

Mike - no worries man, thanks for all your help getting everything ordered up!

I have LED's on right now (Rizoma Track 77's) but am going to sell them and install these Bella Corse ice cube signals in black. (Your Cateyes are at the bottom of the page.)

I liked the Rizomas initially, but have come to feel that they are too small. The single LED is very bright, but the actual visible area is small. Just felt that I was not being seen on sunny days.

Comparo to stock: http://j.mp/Spb05A

Front and back (the other lights are LED running/brake lights from Skene Design): http://j.mp/Spb4SU

Those Rizoma's are cool, RSDA. A little too modern for my taste on this bike, but they look like quality kit. I don't feel like my cat-eye's are too small, but that's probably because the lens is still about 1"x2" of rounded oval. Hoping to find something like them, black housing, decent sized lens and LED internally. #wishmeluck
