I always thought the stock S tail was too short and stubby....and the R tail is MUCH better for my saddlebags on long trips. I used a Sharkskinz tail with anti draft undertail thingy. Most S owners hate it...meh, I never bothered much, it's all personal opinion. I've been thinking about trying something else like a gsxr tail but I doubt the bags would work, and that's a must have. You'll need to get creative with the mounting, but I used the stock S subframe.
Only pictures I have on photobucket, but pm me if you want some specifics on how I mounted it, actually bike is completely torn apart for multiple maintenance items and have to repair one tail mount so I could send you some pictures of the mounting points.
