R&G tail tidy and luggage

Does anyone now if the ventura luggage will fit with a r&g tail tidy. Apparently there are four bolts the rack fits too but i fear these are not there when fitting the r &g tailtidy

Re: R&G tail tidy and luggage

Not sure about the R&G. I went for the EVOTECH tail tidy and the Ventura "L" brackets still fit where they should, from what I remember the brackets sit on the side two fixing holes of the tail tidy I didn't lose those bolt holes both used the same fixing point. I put a couple of pics on this thread you may be able to see. https://www.fireblades.org/forums/hon...tml#post863124

Re: R&G tail tidy and luggage

Per the instructions from R&G, you still re-use the 4 allen bolts from below to mount the cover. these 4 bolts are what are replaced to install the ventura. (I have one installed along with a knock-off version of the tidy tail)

You shouldn't have any problems.

cheers.

Re: R&G tail tidy and luggage

I have a R&G tailtidy fitted to my bike (09 Fireblade ABS) and fitted Ventura luggage to it with no problems. As said before it uses the 4 allen screws, takes about 5 to 10 mins to fit. The only issue I have had is, I got a Honda rear hugger fitted when I bought the bike and it hits the undertray of the the bike due to the exra weight. I spoke to my dealer who said, that will be why there is no hugger for the ABS model Fireblade in the Honda book.

I had a similar experience with the hugger and the ABS model, the dealer mentioned the problem but were still happy to fit the Honda hugger prior to me picking the bike up last week. There still seems quite a bit of clearence, but time will tell!
