What do rear axle sliders actually protect? There are many other things that will get jacked up in a slide before it even gets to those.

I had the evotech tail tidy but don't use it due to the fact you can't use the ducati led indicators with it. Fitting the r&g tail tidy today.

What was the problem you found with the tail tidy Daviemcc?

The website from evotech states the following:

"Monster 821 Tail tidy/fender eliminators from EP are CNC machined from the highest grade materials

Retains the original Ducati factory indicators

Evotech Performance supply a new LED number plate light

EP supply new connectors that plug into the Monster 821 loom, so it's a plug and play system".

The only reason I ask, is because I just ordered the setup for that reason. Hope it all fits! 😳

Ahhhh, never mind - I just realized you were referring to the led indicators, not the standard ones. My bad :)

I have the Evotech tidy installed as well. I have ordered the Ducati front and rear led markers and will be installing these as well. I saw them on the 1200m and it looked really nice and bright! ImageUploadedByDucati.org Forum1431798455.548330.jpg ImageUploadedByDucati.org Forum1431798470.169577.jpg Please see part numbers for these LED's. Who says that these LED are not compatible?! They are plug and play on our units! Unless your talking about a different markers? ImageUploadedByDucati.org Forum1431798344.362046.jpg ImageUploadedByDucati.org Forum1431798356.199300.jpg

The rear led lights don't fit on the evotech tail tidy.
I got the r&g one today and they should work with that.
The evotech requires the lights to be attached with a screw. The led's don't have this capability.

Evotech frame sliders. Here are some pics with measurements - they do stick out a little more than 6 inches, but they will protect the radiator in a tip over.

I tested them a couple weeks ago when I dropped my bike in my gravel driveway. The frame sliders did their job! Apart from some small scratches on the mirror there was absolutely no other damage!

I'm very happy with the quality and fit of these sliders and I don't mind how they look.

I have the ones made by Rizoma. Here are a few pics in the same format that Paul posted for us. As you can note Rizoma’s are notably shorter. They were easy to install although the left one was a bit of a pain with the coolant tubes.

I had the misfortune of testing my frame sliders performance last Monday. My driveway has a decent inclination to it and as I was rolling the bike to get out of the garage I didn’t slow it enough and dropped it on its left side. I felt like a million dollar debt with such an avoidable drop, but anyways here's the damage report:

1) The bar end mirrors (Rizoma Spy-R’s) obviously suffered. It has some good scratches on it but I’m surprised they didn’t crack as it fell pretty hard. 2) The shifting pedal snapped off though which blew my mind, I have since replaced it with DucaBike. 3) the often maligned rider’s pegs also have minor scratches. Outside of that there’s no damage whatsoever on the bike. Anyways, I can post pictures of both the mirror and snapped pedal if you’d like.

Overall I'm satisfied with their performance, cost and looks. I'm bummed about the pedal but I think its due to the unnatural steep angle at which it was dropped, I don't know maybe.
