I'm in the same boat, and I'm thinking about the DP carbon short tail, but I can't seem to find a good picture of it anywhere on the web. Unless it's a fair bit shorter and better looking than stock, I probably won't do anything, as I'm not a huge carbon fiber fan.Wanwo said:Don't regret losing the stock but I wonder if I shouldn't have gone with the shorty. It can depend on your exhaust what looks best. The problem is you might change your exhaust in the future.
Keep the piece of frame. You can always go back. It only takes $.
Anyone else have a similar experience?dukatea said:The only "regret" was when I discovered you can't ride the bike in rain.
Well, you can, but you get major swamp ass. The tail deflects water. Without it, that rooster-tail of water goes right into your crack.
The best that I can tell is that there is just enough water thrown up on the pillion cowl that runs down onto the rider seat. without the extended tail, the rooster tail isn't a foot and a half behind you, it flies straight up into the brake light assembly.MS4RS said:Anyone else have a similar experience?
I ride my bike all the time I can, but I don't like the idea of getting wetter then I need to be. With that said, how is your ass getting wet from the rooster tail that should be about a foot and a half behind you?
here's a top view... looking for others now...kaiser552 said:Does any one have pictures of the dp shorty from a side or top view so we can really see what it looks like? Thats what I was worried about is the rain thing. I live in oregon and sometimes you start to get the itch to ride and you stop careing about the rain.
