I'll take some snaps tonight.
It's actually holding on very tightly, and I can still fit the toolkit plus my registration and insurance papers (all that fits in there anyways!)

If I get OCD about it, I'll just buy a shorter bolt. Home Depot is 2 minutes away; I'd rather take that route than deal with the company.

This is the same as mine.

I lost the washer down into the bottom of the tool holder, and didn't have any appropriate tools on hand to fish it back out...other than that the install was easy and it's still a vast improvement over the stock rear. I was also missing the bolts for the plate holder, but NRC sent those along when I emailed them. I don't find it to be mismatched to the look of the bike any moreso than the stock signals, which were also obviously an afterthought.

Stock apparatus is reminiscent of the starship enterprise. Trekky and Ducati don't jive.

The Competition Werkes one has the option for plate to be further back.

I likely risk getting pulled over here as well, but we'll see. Where my opinion differs from yours is that "chopped off" is not an accurate description of the NRC kit. Although it's not perfect, it's the "cleanest" available option where the tail looks like an unobstructed piece in its own with this kit.

in all honesty, reusing the four stock bolt mounting points would have been perfect, given that you have to take everything apart anyways.

Absolutely. Playing wrist and hand contortionist cirque de soliel anyways, might as well get it fully bolted in.
