I have never put on a Eurotail but it should be the same basics as all the others. Go to www.hotbodiesracing.com and look at their instructions to see if it will help

God Bless you !! I got a Eurotail for Christmas and the instructions do suck !! I have been to hotbodies site and Graphic Arts site looking for info on the installation. If you combine all of these you actually get half decent instructions.
A word of caution..:rolleyes: Make sure that the plastic grommet/catch that the rubber band for your tool kit connects to does not protrude below flush on the old tray. I spent hours trying to figure out where the gap around my rear cowl was coming from and this little worthless piece of plastic caused me to remove/reinstall my Eurotai several time.
Good Luck !!

which kit did you get, if you got it from eurobikes, i could answer any questions you have, i am not real familiar with the other company's products. let me know, i have a digital camera, i could probably snap some better pics for ya

I got the one from Eurobikes as well. I also did the modification to the aluminum cross member that holds the seat support like they recommended in the instructions.
This was supposed to eliminate "excessive" gaps in the rear seat cowl. I called them twice and they basically recommecded that I slide some washers under the rear cowl mounting bolt to reaise the rear.
This just adds stress to the cowl which will more than likely result in splitting over time.
I am condsidering installing the extra supports that are in Robert Dussault's instructions (it may have been a link from his site ??) Basically it is 2 pieces of all-thread with 2 nuts on each and a rubber cap. It gets threaded through the lightening holes in the rear cross member and adds 2 more support poins to the rear cowl.
I figure it will not hurt to try it ...:cool:

just make sure nothing is too tight;body will crack over time.

Nothing is too tight. It just took forever to get the damn thing to look acceptable to me. I guess I was just disappointed in what 300 bucks buys you any more...
Most of these aftermarket companies take your money and give you lousy support when you need help with their product. It is just a shame....

Yep, I got the one for Eurobikes and the instructions are pathetic. And you"re not kidding Red...300 bucks for THAT was my first thought too. It"s crazy what ya pay for as opposed to what you get............Thanks for all your help guys..............Josey:ugh
