AK solo tail

I purchased the AK Comp. tail that accepts the stock seat. This is more of a track day tail as it is a solo config with no taillight cutout and identical to their SBK tail EXCEPT it's cut for the stock seat. Unfortunately, the seat will not mount with the tail on... It's an obvious design flaw. The stock seat has a long tab (about 2") that comes out past the end of the back of the seat for mounting. With the tail on, the seat cannot be installed, nor can you install the seat then install the tail. It's a catch 22.

The tailsection is very nice and the quality is there, unfortunately though, I have to revert back to the stock POS for now... I was going to fab in the stock taillight to the tail and paint it up stock color... Would have looked awesome, but that idea is shot unless I want to cut the shit out of the tail... And that ain't happening....

Just an FYI for other "customizer's" like me... Hoping to save someone the same headache I now have.

For those wondering, the tail is exactly the same shape on the bottom and end as the stocker. It just has the hump. See the pics of the Attack Kawi race bikes... That what I bought cept it was cut out for the seat instead of a foam pad.

Because wheelie!!!
