race tail

Wondering if anyone knows of a brand of race tail thats close to the factory in size..
I have a hot bodys kit now on the bike but the tail just seems so damn huge and i want something thats about the size of the factory set up...I got short legs and its a bitch swinging my leg over the tall wide tail...Up till i had to remove my side stand to attempt to race i was ok cause i could lean the bike but with no side stand,im gonna drop the damn thing..Now that i have gone to a pirelli pro slick the bike will be taller again(yes ill be taken out the rear shim on my elka to help)so now i gotta lower the bike some....
I need a tail piece that has a lower profile and not as wide as the hot bodys tail..Suggestions boyzzzzz..

Team green,Bleed green,RIDE GREEN!!

Brembo m/c,Nassert Beet,HEL lines,Pazzo levers,HID kit,custom monster paint scheme..Thanks to forum member horse for that..Woolich raceing kit,Elka rear shock and front fork pistons,Green samco coolant hose kit,Zero gravity dbbl smoked screen,520 conversion,attack rear sets,bmc race air filter,Monster zx6 front seat,moto graffix tank pad,feredo pads,galpher lite weight rear rotor.

Hotbodies makes some sexy under tails but their plastic quality is HORRIBLE.
