Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think all I need is the mono tail and lights and mounting hardware for the lights...right? I'm looking for a mono tail with the white plate so when my wife isn't riding with me, I can just throw on the mono tail. So back to my question...how much will the tail and lighting hardware run me? Thanx.

I was under the impression that the monoposto and biposto tails used different subframes.

Umm... The way I've known it was you can swap from a biposto to a mono but not from a mono to a bi. The brackets and everything match up the same for the plastic. The difference in subframes has to do with the fact that if you change a mono into a bi that the subframe for the mono will not support a passenger but changing from a bi to a mono the only thing the bi subframe is supporting is plastic so there's no harm done. I'm going by what I've been told and I have no direct knowledge of this.

It makes sense to me though. The mono has a lighter subframe and no footpegs or any holes or brackets for footpegs but the bi's subframe does, and if the mounting brackets for the tail match up the same then I don't see why it won't work.

Like I said, I don't know this for sure so I'm not gonna go out and spend around $300 or so to find out but this is just what I've been told.

Do you guys have any direct knowledge of this or have changed out mono for bi and (not or) bi for mono. Thanx.

Here is what you'll need to do the conversion, HUS.


Part Number .............. Description

438.2.019.2NA - Rear Seat Cowl (Red) (438.2.019.2NB for Yellow)
827.1.086.1A - Seat bracket
777.5.234.2B - Screws for bracket above (x2)
595.1.027.1A - Seat Assembly (includes rubber pads x4)
866.1.023.1A - Right hand pad
866.1.024.1A - Left hand pad
827.1.120.1A - Plate
829.2.004.1A - Holder
713.1.109.1A - Spacers x2 (which I think is 4mm too long - but check it first)
779.5.009.1A - Screws for spacer above x2
525.4.005.3A - Tail lamp assembly (includes bulbs)
827.1.111.1A - Plate for cable connector
866.1.018.1A - Rubber spacer
866.1.020.1A - Rubber Stoppers x2
764.1.024.1A - Rubber Grommets x2
832.1.008.1A - Pins x2

Have your local dealer check these part numbers - I'm fairly sure they're correct. You'll also need 4 nuts, (5mm hole, which use an 8mm socket), and four washers. These attach the seat to the Rear Cowl. Total cost will be approximately $850 buckaroo's!

Thanks Paul. Hey, I haven't asked yet but are you the same Paul that I know? The one that got kicked off the site? Peace.

At this time, I can neither confirm, nor deny that I am the "Paul" which you speak of. You're welcome.

Let's hope not. The first one was an @$$hole. That is weird though, two guys named Paul from Atlanta that each had 748s...
