Thanks IdeaJones

Just installed his grab handle hole covers and I think they looks awesome! After installing the covers, new levers and mirrors I finally got the bike to exactly the look I was going for.......well I just noticed I need a fender eliminator....does it ever end!?

Yeah I used it a lot too when moving the bike around, we'll see how much I miss it. Plus the handle did add some extra protection from my tail bag sliding off.

I installed a set of grab rail covers (sadly, not IdeaJones) -- I think the tremendously improve the look of the bike.

Functionality vs. looks.

Covers makes a huge difference on the lines. Unfortunately, I've grown accustomed to having a hard tail bag and that requires I keep the grab rail. Before that it was tank bag that I had to lug on and off.

I ponied up for rizoma covers... only found out IdeaJones made them months after.

thebeedee, there's a comps werks fender for sale (i think? if its still there) if you're interested. if you dont like the look or it's too rich for you, i have a chopped mud guard that you could replace your oem one with if you prefer that route.

either way, looks good! personally, i like the grab rail on the bike. more so when it's powdercoated black.

Your very welcome sir, I'm glad you got them installed already and are pleased with the way they fit. I have sold more than 30 sets and recently pulled my add from eBay because 2 buyers have had problems installing them. I never imagined this would happen, hopefully that explains the simple instructions written on bottom of the parts.
Thank you for the pictures and the public exposure!

Never underestimate the Human animals ability to really screw something up.
If I didn't use my grab handle so much I'd be picking up a set of these things, great work.

If anything, it might be because they are a VERY tight fit. I really had to work my left side in there, was tempted to file down a bit if the under-edge because I didn't want to crack my cowl.

The paint might be thicker on the slower red ones. That would make them heavier.

Have you seen the new version of the beast?! Flat black... Which means since it's flat, least drag coefficient possible on any 919 out there

Yeah I would agree with this too, at first I was scared to push harder, but i worked them in. I'd rather them be a bit tight than a bit loose though, just had to finesse them in there. that's what she said

Huh... I bought mine quite a while back and had no problems with installation. But I DO feel cheated a little bit because I didn't get instructions.

Pretty sure that your drag coefficient of your tank is higher than mine.

Perhaps slightly as far as the bike is concerned... but it's a widely known fact that trolls have a horribly high rate of drag... regardless of vehicle!! HA!

Oh yeah man, I would love to powder coat the swing arm and heat shields (well really just maybe some carbon fiber dan motos or something) it would look sick.
