If this information is already on this forum, I couldn't find it; has anybody been able to get a hold of the Yamaha factory optional solo seat cover yet?
IMO $170 is money well spent for improving the looks.The fenders are DOT mandated; yes, those ugly hangly-dangly things are the first to go. I cut mine with a coping saw back in the 1980s and thus made my own "fender eliminator".
The solo seat covers should come with the bike, but the $170.00 Yamaha charges is yet another way of them making money. I'm going to try to get the seat cover thrown in, but I doubt they'll do it.
This is great advice, you just saved me ~$30! :nerd:For future reference, you can save yourself some money if you NOT buy directly from the dealer. Or even ebay. Most of the times, if not all the times, oem parts specialty shops online will always have the items for a cheaper price.
Usually its as simple as getting the part number, such as the raven cowl:
and google search it.
Not really. There are several metal brackets on the cowl underside that get in the way of putting anything of any size under it. You can fit OEM tool kit in the little plastic tray, and maybe a phone, keys, etc.Does the solo seat cowl give you more room to store things?
