The original number plate hanger is a bit of a pain to take off but the Evotech tail tidy fits well. The only wiring to cut is to the number plate light but shouldn't be a problem to return to standard when the time comes. I have a Ventura rack on mine now and the Evotech works with that although you have to unfasten the indicators first.
fitted my tail tidy today, I see what you mean about it being a pain to disassemble the original bracket! I didn't need to snip any wires with mine, although the LED is not currently working as I wired it the wrong way round and stupidly didn't test it before bolting the whole thing back together lol. Should be an easy fix even if it is a pain in the bum to take the tail plastic off to get to the wires.
Makes a huge difference to the back end. Why they have to go and put on such huge items at the factory I don't know. Did you get a red reflector with your tidy? I have a stick on one on my number plate as my tidy was used off ebay.
Was a bit at odds with luggage options for the bike and in the end I opted to go with Ventura kit. [IMG][/IMG]
For anyone interested in how the brackets are mounted they are bolted to the frame as in the two pics below using longer bolts and the OE nut. Little bit fiddly on the exhaust side due to lack of space. Left side, you can see the bolt head at the top of the spring. [IMG][/IMG] Right side, you can see the bolt head at the top of the carbon.

I had to unfasten my indicators to get the mounting bars positioned. They bolt into the number plate mounts. I used my own bolts for some extra length bearing in mind I have an Evotech number plate bracket on there. [IMG][/IMG]
