So after tweaking here n there I finally somehow got it to work. Servo is pulling cable and set at proper tension and no EXVL code! Lucky day I guess

Thanks for the pics. They were a great resource for installing my new tidy tail on my 696. Only problem is that the locking mechanism wont lock anymore... I only discovered this AFTER putting it all back together :S

Has anyone got any advice on how to get the lock to work again? I've coiled the lock cable in a single loop, but the lock is stuck permanently in the open position, no matter how much I jiggle the key :/ Do I need more cable tension, or less? and does the rotation of the key-unit matter?

Nevermind, I figured it out. The cable had come loose from its bracket at the locking component end (where there is a spring to push the lock closed). Popped it back in and it works perfectly.

As a side note to anyone installing the evo, make sure you poke the license plate light leads through the holes in the tail and screw in the license plate light BEFORE you crimp the ends of those leads... I figured out the hard way that crimps don't fit through a bolt. Duh.

You guys ever get your backs wet and dirty after a ride under the rain with the tail gone?

That's exactly why I never chopped the tail on mine. I ride it in all weather, and chopping the tail to up near the end of the seat does indeed result in a skunk-stripe of muck whenever you ride in bad weather.

Most people don't care, because few Ducatis are ridden as daily transportation and taken out when it's wet out.

Didn't even think of that with the tail chop. Oh well too late now! Maybe a better rear hugger to help with that?

Have had the key stuck after removing the seat a few times now since the install. I have to really play around with it to get it to come out. Any suggestions?

Default 696/796/1100 EvoTech tail tidy install

Just got done installing my Evotech tail tidy, also included the Motodynamic led taillight in the install & I couldn't be happier with the results.

Thanks to all of you for the help you provided in this thread. Definitely helped out A LOT! It was my first mod and I'm pretty damn proud of it. Haha

Here's a before/after pic.
