don't need it, my tail section is held on by 2 zip ties on the ears of the tail section (the part that is closest to the tank).

i COULD put those pop rivets and bolts on top of the tail....BUT here's the trick why you SHOULD NOT...in the event of a crash, the body work is more prone to break and crack where it is secured......moral of the story, if you can get away with zip ties, do it...........cuz if you were to crash again, you'll have a better chance salvaging a tail that flew off, then a tail that got crushed and smashed.

Seriously Tony...........it isn't like you have to worry about it or anything. I mean, one day when you are FAST then zip ties might not cut it anymore!!!!

I had read that a superbike tail would work. I actually found the piece I needed so its all good now. Tks tho.

hey brandt.....make sure you don't bolt those top 2 bolts next time.....or you'll be replacing tail sections every time you hit the floor.
