Cheap tail tidy?

Yo i'm looking for some cheap tail tidy, coz i don't think that part of metal worth over 150$.
So i found one for 33$ and i think its legit price for metal piece

Zolty, Master of sarcasm, may I use some now?

You are attempting to save $117 (maybe more) by finding out how to re-bolt that fcuked-up looking rear light BACK ONTO your lovely bike?

There are better ways to save your currency, Brutha.

One way to fit that very ordinary looking AliExpress option, and I am being serious, would be to check out the LED units on eBay. Though you still have to work out which one is going to fit best AFTER you've ordered and payed That could be a long (repeated shipping every time you guess wrongly) and not much cheaper project in the end.

I wish you luck, seriously, but the direction you are headed would not be worth saving $117 for, honestly. I'd go Evotech.

That cheap tail tidy look hideous. Pony up and get a good one from evotech or r&g you get what you pay for in most cases. I have the evotech and while expensive form fit and function are top notch.

If you get the Evotech, you can order the 12 O'clock labs processor board, which would give you brighter lights, brake pulse and integrated turns.

Do not get the Vagabond fender eliminator. That **** has broken on so many people, and it's still $70.

Try the China-special one if you're up for it. It's a cheap thing and there's only one way to find out if it fits.

I agree with you. These pieces of metal should not be so pricey. Maybe it's because I'm disillusioned by the crap engineering from Vagabond.

I'm not saying that this chinese thing is good i just wanted to see if someone have/tested it, anyway i don't think that i will pay over 150$ for original tail tidy, like for the decat eliminator which cost over 130$ for me they are overpriced for sure. @Boldor Evotech looks badass for sure, but i can't understand the price.
@wiwwee Well... I think is better to stay with original tidy than make something like you did lel.
Anyway i think this chinese tidy looks good to me, but as i though we need to do some tricks for hold the rear light.

I'm def no millionaire but its only $150 bucks for something that is very pleasing to look at and also will last the lifetime of the bike.

I know loads of people who spend more than that a week on smokes alone

Just spend it and then enjoy looking at your sexy rear end.... something isn't quite right about that
