I was nervous drilling into this $200+ item . I couldn't find any step by step directions just finished shots So I took lots of pics and it turned out great! First off Take your old tail off and move your wiring out of the way . I was installing a Tiger undertail also and didn't want the wires to show so I moved them outward . MAKE SURE YOU CAN GET TO THE HUMP LOCK BEFORE PUTTING THE HUMP ON

Stupid pics are backwards. Anyways. I drilled the front side bolts first then placed the hump on to make sure it fit . I did this with the hump after drilling EVERY BOLT HOLE! Got to make sure it fits right. Then I thought about a better way to make sure the bolts lined up right . I used a pilot dill bit before using the paddle bit. It worked awesome . With the bushings you can also dremel the hole a tiny bit so if you are off a little it won't matter .

You can use the small drill bit to see if you are off before using the paddle bits. Thes are the tools needed 1/8 drill bit 1/2 ,5/8, 13/16 paddle bit

It looks worst than it is because of the primer being scratched off but if I was to do it again , I wouldn't even drill the side bolt next to the seat . I don't think it would matter an the way the tail is molded it is a tight fit for the bolt. As for the light piece Airtech sent me the wrong one so my light is just stuck in there with some Velcro.

Sorry about the pics all being backwards I don't know how to re-arrange them. Any Questions just PM me . The tail came out nice and tight and fits awesome . As you can see the Hump lined up great ! To see underneath I will be doing a "how to install a Tiger extended undertail" in a few . I hope this helps out those wanting to do this .
