Got some more progress ...upper and front fender mounted, pretty straight forward. Just took my time to line everything up first, then drill. The holes I went up in diameter step by step so I dont make them too large.

Used the same mounting grommets/bushings for the front fender.

I am impressed with the hole alignments right out of the box for Armor Bodies bodywork. They are flexible and makes the fitting a breeze. The rear tail....thats another story. I still cant get the seat installed, so I'll get the dremmel out :laugh





Edit: Forgot to add: I used the stock windscreen as is, didn't need any modification or trimming with the armor bodies bodywork

The Hotbodies tail has 2 relief cuts to get the seat on and off, so I assume you will have to do something similar.


Good to see photos of the Armor bodies bodywork. It looks like the Hotbodies race seat/tank cover will work fine with it if you ever want the seat higher.

Wish I had a grinder to cut that mount off as well, but do I need it if I use my stock seat?

I'm going to dremmel out that cut out like the Hotbodies tail kit to make the seat mounting real easy.

Replied to your email regarding the Hotbodies....

There are 2 large brackets that are used to mount the OEM passenger seat, I cut those off, and there are 2 smaller tabs closer to the front of the bike that are used to mount the OEM plastic side pieces of the tail, I cut those off too.

I'm getting better at mounting the tail with more practice I'm getting. I've mounted/dismounted the tail >10 times now for whatever reasons (too many to list).

I did also dremmel the tail so I dont have to worry about the seat mounting, that works great now

How flexible are the Armour Bodies? I found the Catalyst Composites I have ate super stiff.

Flexible enough for me not to grind off the OEM rear seat mount

I've owned Armor bodies on all my R6 before, this set was no different. Flexible enough to be mounted but not soft and weak.

I had to remove the kick stand to mount the lowers , I wanted to keep the kick stand on for track days
