Triumph Speed Master Tail Tidy Kitz & Installation Guide

Updated: Oct 16



The Speed Master has a lot of unnecessary clutter hanging from fender to attach just, a license plate and its elaborate illumination ? Hmmm. Well it is kind of a chopper. You have to start somewhere. Chop it!

Slimmer and less bulbous than the stock lamp. Its the real deal. Instantly changing the stance of the bike. Cast in aluminum and a factory fit. Polished, gloss black and textured black are the finishes of the housing. It offers the choice of 4 plug and play lamps. License plate illumination is integral which eliminates the elaborate stock set up.

2 kits are available for use with stock signals, signals of your choice or signals I provide.

1/ Tail Tidy with License plate bracket. This kit requires the use of a hack saw or cut off disk to remove stock license plate set up. Ha Ha! Frightened yet ?? Don't worry, you are cutting a $14 part that is stocked by all Triumph dealers. Easily cut (plastic) and easily obtainable. (Because one day, you are going to put back that contraption back on).

Once removed the license plate bracket supplied with kit will replace it. Positioning license plate in a practical spot under tail light. A seamless fitting kit, as factory.

2/ Tail Tidy kit. This kit incorporates the stock license plate set up and gives options of turn signals and tail light. https://www.maundspeed.com/product-page/speedmaster-tail-tidy


Fitting Instructions.

1/ Directly beneath the tail light assembly, on the underside of fender, 3 Torque head screws need to be undone with T30 driver. This will free the light assembly from fender. Remembering the only thing connecting the assembly is a few wires. Place a rag over fender to protect paint and turn assembly belly up. Firstly disconnect 3 wires to the tail light. Once that is free, turn signals and license plate light connectors can be unplugged. The complete assembly can then be removed.

2/ On a bench the assembly is easily dismantled taking note of wire routing. Undo 3 screws securing light with 5mm Allen wrench. Remove screws and ferules .

Remove 2 Allen screws inboard of where signals connect. 2 screws will also need to be removed on the extension for license plate.

The assembly basically consists of an inner and outer molding. The only thing now, holding the parts together, are the 3 rubber grommets the ferules came out of. With your thumb or a screw driver ease the grommet flange through the hole. The inner and outer are now separate.

3/ The inner piece "Triumph part # T2702356 Hanger lower reg. plate" will need to be cut. Don't worry, it is a $14 part easily available at any Triumph dealer. It is also easily cut with a hack saw or a cut off disc.


4/ Removal and replacement of signals require use of 5mm Allen key. The assembly can now be reassembled. Inserting the grommets is easier with some spit or Vaseline to lubricate.

5/ Please view charts below for wire connections. It is easy, but be sure to use specific color connection for lamp purchased with kit.
