  • Want to change my tail is this safe?????

    I have seen a couple people do this to their bikes i was wondering if i can just raise the subframe if i have too this is what i want and i like my stock tail

    Not in it's currently shape, the bike in the pic shows no support for the rear. Especially with the dual passanger seat and stock tail set up, you definately need more support.

    My suggestion, would be to add the following support rails at the minimum.

        Doing rails like I photoshopped in will hold up to the recomended maximum weight for the bike, and be fully hidden behind your stock tail plastics.

        The only thing not shown in the picture is that the first couple of inches of the new lower rail from the main frame may need to follow the same bend pattern as the upper rail or close depending upon your plastics (clearance issues, or you could adjust the plastics... ).

        This is a safe alternative as long as it's welded or attatched correctly.

            The way Kreylyn has drawn in the supports is very similar to most SS tails. I think that would work as long as it's done correctly.

            90% of motorcycle forum members do not have a service manual for their bike.

              ive had no trouble with mine chopped like that and we ride 2 up all the time. altho looking closer at your pic I didnt remove the section of frame that holds the rear pegs on so that supports the aft section while dblin up.
