Passenger Grab Bar Caps?

Besides Rizoma...is there anybody that makes the grab bar caps for these 9er's? I can make some but thought I'd ask the forum first.

I've never heard of any other companies aside from Rizoma making the covers... I dished out the $40, looks made a world of difference. However, one creative WT member used speaker grill and some matching paint. Looks pretty good.

I made me some out of a textured piece of place and press floor tile I had laying around. I made a template and cut and sculpted em until I was satisfied. Then I painted em black and added a couple coats of clear for durability. My GF is very picky and she says they look great. Cost to do it...$0. Here they are.

That's the beauty...place and press tile has an adhesive backing so no bolting necessary. Just peel off the backing paper and stick it on there. It's on there permanently, that's for sure.

It's just adhesive backing...they will peel off when you wanna put your bar back on.

Yeah...it's definitely easier to get on the quick stand with the bar on too. It just really looks cool without it and cleans up the tail nicely. When I trail the GF she says she doesn't feel comfortable grabbing onto it so it really serves no purpose for us. Hope my suggestion helps somebody else out.
