    Default 10" arm with 8" tail

    Need some advice on the best way to fabricate the mounts on a 8" catalyst tail. Is it best to get a extended tiger tail? And what about the tiger battery tray? If anyone has any pics for reference that would be really helpful.

    Someone has to have some ideas and pointers they can give me to get this done right the first time. Any help would be awesome guys. The extended tail mount is what I really need some help with. I want this to come out real clean and neat.

    I just used the factory mounting hardware and grommets. Use the extended tiger tail if you want a liner. You're making it entirely way too complicated. With my 6 over aerotech tail I reused the grommets for the Frankenstein bolts, as well as the lowest rubber grommeted point. And used factory hardware. If you can use the factory isolaters/grommets it will hold up quite well.

    Suzuki spent a lot of time engineering how these things went together; use their logic and parts.

    Bike looks really good!

    Your probably right about me making it too complicated. Sometimes I do that. So what your sayin is if I want to, I can use the factory inner fender? Let me ask you ths, under the hump on the gen 2 are the 2 phillips head screws and the 2 12 millimeter bolts that have the grommets that bolt the tail to the sub frame. If my new tail doesn't have the hump just like yours how does it get mounted at those points? From underneath?
    Thanks again for your help!

    The fiberglass tails don't weigh anything, you'll be fine with the 4 mounts I mentioned (with a snug fit and use of the isolaters). To get the full benefit and ride height you're best off just getting a tiger tail, trim to fit your tail.
