Yoshimura Tail Tidy

I received an advance sample of the new Yoshimura tail tidy fender eliminator kit which will be available this month. It will retail for $149.95. It is very well designed and incorporates holders for original turn signals which can be mounted wide or narrow (pictures are narrow). Holders for aftermarket turn signals also available. Has a license plate frame for US size plates and very nice LED light for the plate. I'll mount it up on mine shortly and post more pics but Yoshimura site will have them up soon.

That's really clean looking! And I like the Yoshimura name on it!

This is excellent! Any idea if it will hold a Canadian plate?

The slotted holder for the plate allows for about 95mm to 160mm bolt spacing

Are the cables hidden when installed? The evotech tailtidy has a plate that covers the cables. This looks like the cables are in the open?

Maybe overthinking a license plate kit but it looks like the cables will have to run along the bracket? Yeah, the EvoTech unit has a very clever way of completely hiding the license plate led wire and the signal wires are mostly hidden by running back into the kit from behind the plate & then hidden between the main bracket into the tail. I like the singlular middle bracket of the EvoTech better too vs. the two sided bracket on the Yosh. Also like the smaller EvoTech LED. The EvoTech kit also has a nice finishing plate that perfectly fits the area where the stock fender used to be mounted under the tail. The downside of the EvoTech unit is you have to use additional adaptors to mount a U.S. plate but it's not really noticeable. Think the EvoTech units thicker material (air craft grade aluminum, the Yosh looks steel) & powder coat finish looks better & the style looks more OEM'ish perhaps is a cleaner look but look forward to seeing the Yosh mounted & glad to see more co.s making after-market parts for the H2.

Correct, the cables are not hidden and would need some kind of flexible conduit to tidy them up.
