Pricing and parts available on his site. Good guy, too.

Rizoma isn't cheap, so expect to pay prices that make the significant other yell at you.

$40 ?! I'm cheap. I butterflied a couple of short pieces of reinforced heater hose, and stuck them in the cowl where the holes are. A little Armorall, and it almost looks like carbon fiber on my retarded lime green 919.

Cheers guys. Here is another teaser pic.
It really does look better without the grab rail.

I have found the grab rail to have a very important function for me. It helps me steady the bike while I pop it up on the rear work stand.

+1 on that. I like the clean look of the tail without the grab rail, but am keeping it for just that reason.

They are Rizoma Impulsive mirrors.

Yep, I like Rizoma stuff.

Not sure about others but my bike has a centre stand and this is ok without the grab rail.
We use a paddock stand for the wifes bike but there is always two of us to put it up. I can imagine it would be very difficult on your own.

I give the Grab bar another enthusiastic . Not just for steadying the bike on stand placement and moving it about the garage etc.. but I think it is quite a nice looking accent. It looks like a little spoiler. If I was going to remove the thing I would not cap the holes but plasti-weld a couple of pieces of ABS plastic underneath the holes and properly fill them making it perfectly smoothed over. The caps look kinda cheap.. some worse than others. Just my opinion though. Dig those Rizoma mirrors. Definitely a quality alternative to OEM. I'm seriously considering the Rizoma black billet round ones... forget get the name. They look real sweet! These:

I don't know how Rizoma consistently manages to put out stuff with such excellent quality, but still maintaining the attitude you want out of European parts.

If I had the $$$, my bike would be covered in Rizoma gear.

Those Rizoma Class mirrors are dead sexy.

I like the look of the grab rail painted black, I think I'll do that later tonight.

Anyone got any helpful tips for installing those caps? I just got a pair from PJ's today but there's no instructions. Do you have to remove the cowl to get the tiny little nuts tightened down? Thanks!

These make me consider putting mirrors back on my bike. Much better looking than the stock mickey mouse mirrors.
