EvoTech Performance imo. Powder coated aluminum instead of steel. Has a really neat system for hiding the directional wires & license plate led wire. Nicer looking led light without branding. Like the way it mounts to the tail better, has a very well thought out/designed bracket that fits the tail.

Only down side of the EvoTech kit - if you live in the states, you'll need to use the license plate adapter that comes with the kit to fit the smaller license plates & the screw holes so if you want to put on a license plate frame it's a problem because the holes in a typical plate frame won't line up with the adapter.

For a start its a nice gauge Stainless Steel powder coated black, comes with LED indicators or use your originals (like I did). I got it for all up $57 US ( $80 Australian posted!) and its good! I find Yoshi stuff expensive and very over- rated. Been buying Yoshi stuff lots over the years and you always have to pay the big bucks for an average product. Their exhausts are good but other stuff very average. Can't talk about Evo Tech but again very expensive for a basic set up. This one from eBay is a gem and fitted very well for a reasonable price. I am a fitter and machinist and can vouch for its quality!
Take it easy

I live in the US, bought the tail tidy from EvoTech shipped from the U.K. as well as their front & rear spindle bobbins, frame sliders, etc. but sometimes you can find their stuff new from retailers on eBay. There's also a US retailer or 2 that I saw online think one was called motorstarz.com but if you search on google that's the best shot.

They make quality parts., Yes, it's mostly under the bike but their tail mounting plate is made to fit exactly the opening left in the tail by removing the OEM unit & without seeing ugly bolts & hides all wires without needing zip ties, etc. The wiring runs hidden through the middle of the singular center post & then hidden between the back bracket to reach each directional. Can tell some though went into the design specific to the H2 & on how to make it look the most OEM'ish possible.

EvoTech



Vs.something like this (R&G) that doesn't fill that space under the tail & bolts that don't belong in the undertail of an H2:


Here's the Yosh:


Plus the EvoTech license plate light styling is very H2ish:

Imo the EvoTech tail tidy is the nicest one on the market but the down side is that for those in the USA there's a small adaptor (to fit US plates) & once a license plate is mounted the plate sits too close to the LED light to get a license plate frame in there plus the holes of a frame probably won't line up since you have to drill out the top license plate holes to get it to fit the adaptor. Last time I was at my dealership my service manager (he knows I'm OCD) was giving me the business because my license plate didn't have a frame & the very edges of the plate were bare steel, not painted,, whichever convict made it must have been having a bad day. Anyway, I use this stuff called PLASTI-DIP for tools, etc. so had a idea for the plate.

I poured some PLASTI-DIP into a plastic tray about a 1/4" deep. Then dipped each side of the plate in it, & Voila! Made my own rubber edged frame that can take a ton of abuse.
