    PROTOTYPE single seat tail

    Well I made this prototype off a single seat tail , getting some measeruments from you guys on the forum.....
    As you will see , I putted in a few more curves at the top and near the seat to give it more slickness and better flow around the seat .
    Not just another chopped oem tail...
    thel me what you think
    I t is a prototype , needs some fine tuning ....
    I still have to figure out a way to get the thing easely mounted on my frame (wich will have to be chopped...)
    Then I can start making the mold and make some more in polyester or carbon IF anyone is interested...
    I am also thinking that the underside wil have some sort of a invisible hinge and closeded with two dzus fastners near the plate holder , so you can open it up
    and easely acces the electrics and have loads of storage space...
    cheers
    Peter

    PROTOTYPE single seat tail

    The Compton one is missing some very key details that he has added to make it cleaner/nicer for the street application.

    James doesnít participate here on the OA so if someone can offer the members here a better tail (functionally and cosmetically) for less than the $695 he charges, I donít see any problem with that.

    Re: PROTOTYPE single seat tail

    Do you just chop the seat and recover it using the existing latch I assume?

    For what it's worth.
    Make sure that you don't use too much cushioning in the seat to avoid losing the nice integrated feeling that the ZRX provides. Even slight changes in the seat height produce noticeable changes in the feeling of turns. Comparable to the change you feel when flipping the eccentrics.
    An inch is quite a lot already in that respect IMO. My seat has been cushioned up less I believe and the difference is clearly there. I had to get used to that after I got the seat but now it feels fine.
    Godspeed Jaco. You're missed down here mate.
