I fitted my R & G TailTidy today great looking well styled product However!
first bend at 50mph it folded back under the seat and was no more.

I Have spoken with R&G and they are going to get back to me once they have looked in to it ,
It does say max plate dimension should be 130mm or this can happen, My plate was 130mm personally I don't think the existing product will work with any plate .

I believe they will fix this and resolve my problem and this could be unique to Urban Enduro model T.B.C

for now Ive ordered a replacement the Evotech one fingers crossed the same doesn't happen .

keen to hear if anyone else has had the problem ?
also the back of my coat was covered in Sh1 hope thats not the trade off for style ?!

That's not very good outcome mrd, :rolleyes:

Trying to stop the muck spraying up off the back wheel is a major problem on loads of bikes today, I've fitted the Classic rear guard and tail tidy to my Icon, and kept the original stone guard on as well , I recently fitted the Power Bronze Hugger and the spray directed on my coat etc was horrendous, :( much worse with the hugger in place IMO,

The R&G tail tidy is less angled than the Evotech one. Hence why I went for the Evotech one in the end.

The Evotech one can also take a full size (Legal) UK plate with no issues.

The hugger made the spray situation worse?

I looked at the Evotech tail tidy but decided against it as the number plate light stuck out to far and didn't look right so I installed an R&G tidy but bent the number plate holder alittle so as to hopefully give more clearance to the rear tyre.
The fixings of the R&G are very robust so I really don't under stand how your's came loose, glad you got it sorted though.
