Maybe I'm just anti-unnecessary carbon fiber, but that looks hideous!

I agree with herb, I think I'd just stay with the duck tail than buy that. Least its not ridiculously expensive, and its functional.

Magnus speaks for the voiceless, tailless and cfless.

At least with the stock tail people will think you just didn't get to it yet. Seriously, has anyone seen a tailless Monster depreciated?

It looks better in the DP catalouge than it does on the bike. Have to agree with Daffe regarding resale value (modified v standard).

At least they tried... still really ugly though.

A skilled welder and a little paint can make a chopped tail un-chopped pretty quickly anyway.

In all fairness it looks much better in person. I myself did not like it in the DP Catalog, but liked it when I saw it in person. But it needs a smaller LED plate light and to be painted black. You really need to see it in person.

I do agree with dennis, It look much better in person. If I had that option before, I would have left mine stock, since I ride in the rain every now and then. You can cut it anytime anyway, if in the long run you dont like the way it looks. ;)

this really belongs in the mods section...

although maybe this question will make it more tech oriented:
what is the functional rationale for the stock tray? It seems like most people like to chop them - why keep one?
