My wife has one on her bike but would kill me if I sold it. Really makes the bike look good.

I'm not much for purely aesthetic mods but that's given me a few ideas. No need for the grab-rail after I got rid of my passenger pegs. Looks like a nice solution to that.

I find the grab rail very handy for moving the bike around in the garage and putting it on and off a wheel stand.

I googled it, and streetfightersinc dot com showed it for $220.

I find the very same thing and there are no other decent and rigid grab points to use instead.

looks nice, where does the key hole go for the seat release? Is it easily removeable if you want to take a passenger?

I too like the grab bar for scooting the bike into its lil corner of the garage...a couple cowls on the site listed above maintained the grab rail, but did not look as nice in my opinion.

The Hesa cowl looks good but is not useful if you take a passenger often. I got mine off E-bay a few years ago. It mounts easily using two of the holes from the handle. The key hole is underneath the cowl and has no access enless you remove the cowl. She never has to worry about carrying tools because I do all the all the work to her bike. All she ever has to do is gas and go. One time I ran my bike out of fuel and my wife sat on the cowl itself. It is strong enough you don't have to worry about it cracking. Not recommended for any long time ride however.
