    Tail tidy couldnít connect!

    I installed a New Rage Cycles tail tidy kit. Ready to plug in and finish up. It had the wrong connector. I donít know if they mailed me the wrong one. It was labeled correctly. Anyone else have this problem?

    You sure you got the right model? I've checked the page since I'm on the fence about those due to local blinker regulations, and I've noticed they have 2 different models.
    Try reaching out to them, they might send you adapters or be able to provide some guidance.

         I actually sent it back for a refund. I went onto eBay and saw an open box item for sale. I zoomed in on the photos and it seems to have the proper connection. It just got shipped today. Iíll let you know how it works out. I really wanted that tucked look. Pa canít have an integrated turn signal tail light. This kit is my only option without drilling holes for turn signals. My only concern is the police. The law is questionable about license plate placement.

    If you went for a refund, smart move. Avoid the hassle of adapters and all that.
    There are actually quite a lot of options that come with turn signals slots to use the originals and not have to drill, I'm having a hard time picking one.
    I really like this model, but I'm still looking into local regulations since they have very specific measurements that you gotta fulfill (gotta love Europe).
    One of the models I'm also looking into is the R&G, that lets you use original turn signals and doesn't require drilling.

        I just wanted the plate tucked under the tail. Which requires new signals. I just wanted to be a bit different. Vagabond seems like a good deal price wise. Well, another try with the NRC. Supposed to be here wed.

    I just bought the 15 dollar tail tidy off aliexpress and transferred the stock connectors to the new lights. Works like a charm and looks great.

    Link to the tail tidy and a pic please?
    I can't make up my mind on which one to get.

    I put the flasher relay on my bike. I put up a video on my YouTube channel. It will give you a good look at the New Rage Cycles tail tidy, and show you the leds flashing. If you are in a good mood please give me a like. I only have 5 subscribers, so if you would like to see some Z900 content Iíd appreciate it if you would.
