SP2 carbon fiber undertail - clean install

Made some small mods (airbox, etc.) and modified the rear by installing carbon plate and LED-lights (street legal).

Also gained some space and saved some pounds by installing a LiIon-battery (shindo LTZ7S - no probs and >4 pound less weight)

I'm from Germany and this is nearly the smallest plate you can get (200x200mm).

I've used a flat CF-plate, now problems with that. Installation with 3 aluminum mounts, revited to the plate.

Due to the small LiIon-Battery, I gained a lot of space.

I have not installed a lock for the seat cover, instead of that i just placed a hidden loop under the seat.


The lights are fitted tight in the tail, fixed by adhesive bonding.
The LEDs, espacially the rear/brake light is very bright.

Actually, it folds out into a picnic table too.
