I’ve been interested in that swap/mod for a few years now. I’d love to see that done up.

there's a thread on it in the forum. I actually am not a fan :no. I love the 15+ tail but it just doesn't flow well with 09-14.

Some guy did one on his CBR which looked totally bad ass, but as for 09-14 I would keep it as is and stick to the under tail.

I'm still waiting for the tail to come back from a guy doing it in carbon fiber for me. I'll take pics once I get it all back together again. Are you looking to do something similar? It's not easy and takes a bit of fabbing things up.
i dont have any problem with fabbing things. its a nice job.
any update with the parts on CF???

Still waiting on tail to get done. Guy who's doing it is a liar. Not sure if I will ever get the part back to be honest.

Sooo, after a long wait for the tail to get finished I finally got another one done by someone else. Here are some updated pics with a few tasty mods from the winter blues.

So basically I cut off the back end so the OEM tail light sits in flush to the rear subframe. I then took the mounting point off the section of rear subframe and attached it further up using a few rivets on side and welding inside on subframe.
I still need to fab up an undertail which will get done this winter.
Others have used the entire tail an undertail from the 15 which I think looks way to bulky on any other bike besides the 15+ R1. I love the one piece race tail set up!!! This winter I will be cleaning the install up better as well.
