22. "Which tailpieces are most commonly used by other Monster [M900] ridersand how were they set up?"

European Cycle Specialties in Garden Grove, CA, and PI Motorsports
(formerly Pro Italia) of Glendale, CA, offer their versions of what the
well-dressed Monster should have. Wilson's, of Fresno, CA, sells a unit
made of carbon fiber that doesn't require you to cut the frame rails.

Andy Birko (ayb@umdsun2.umd.umich.edu) offers his own solutions:

"On mine, I cut the tailpiece short just below where a U.S. size tailplate
is. I then abbreviated the plate holder and relocated the reflectors so
that they would not extend below the plate. This setup looks much better
than stock and also makes it much easier to put the beast on a swingarm
stand.

"I've also seen another mod where the guy made three simple brackets out of
aluminum. Two were just 90 degree brackets facing rearward to hold the
plate. The other was like this:

                   ________________
                   |              |
                   |              |

This bracket is used to hold the turn signals on. All three brackets bolted
to the rear two bolts (of four total) used to keep the stock fender on.
With a mod like this, it would be very easy to change back."
