Filled in my grab bar holes on the cheap

I cut the steel mesh off my air filter then used it to fill in my grab bar holes. I love being cheap
Sorry for the crummy pic. My camera is not around and all I gots is my phontelulus.

Cool technique.

I could see myself doing seomthing like that, rather than spending $1000.00 on the billet alternatives.... if I weren't dead set on keeping my grab rail in place.

I use it constantly for moving, lifting, working on the bike. My current luggage also uses it for additional attachment points.

oh ya, the wife uses it while riding with me as well.

Right now just duct tape. I did it quick and dirty last night. (mosquitoes are already terrible here.) I'm going adhesive shopping after work. I have seem some type of fiberglass glue used in similar apps in vented front fenders. Which may come next. I just snapped some more pics in the daylight will post if i can get some service in my cave of an office.

Beat me to it. Only temporary though.

Although if I ever wanted to pop the bar back on that is easily removable.

Instead of the air filter mesh, what about a weave made out of barbed wire?or tread from and oid semi tire...

The guy who brought up murdering out a 919 should be able to come up with something really sick for this!!

Giving me some ideas. I actually saw a friend I haven't seen in a while the other day and he is working in a paint shop. He said he would hook me up on the flat black for rear sets and exahust covers. Debating on the engine, probably leave it as is. I waiting until fall. Can't go that long without my bike during riding season. Finally going to be able to ride to Chi in a couple weeks. Went down to Indy for race weekend on it. That was a blast riding around the speedway, seeing all the madness.

Took some more pics in the p-lot today

I want to do some crazy stuff to it, just don't have the funds. Really want a new headlight and smaller gauges, bring the front in a little. I like the shoyomoto light Rob919 posted.

Resizing to 1024X768 or less and putting them on seperate lines will make all the difference.

Most people prefer them to be under 800X600

There is no need for a new thread if they aren't stacked to the side like that.

They weren't stacked on my screen. Weird. I didn't expect my phone camera images to be that big either.

Jeffcycles- Def have to paint it black.

I think I might just get some thick adhesive vinyl and stick it on top... vinyl flooring, anyone?
