New rear seat cowl

Recommended Posts

r6realtor
This is the yamaha brand seat cowl, I like it! I was unsure of it when I ordered it but in my opinion gives the bike a bit more of a complete look, I also have all black front and rear foot pegs coming, will post pics when i get those installed.
Excuse the mess in the house its daddy day with the kids.

Thanks guys, I actually bring all of my bikes in the house, just to hot in the garage to play with them in FL summers.
I have a few more things coming and I think Im done with this bike for a while.

Now the question from me is that does it shake like the stock seat did?

Does it add any more storage space in the back? and do the factory tools still clip into the bottom side of it?

it did until I put two tiny pieces of sticky foam under the front rubber stoppers, now it doesn't move. I did the same with stock seat which made it also not move.

its literally identical to the stock seat bottom, so everything transfers over and no more storage than stock really. This is more for looks than anything which I am very pleased the way it completes the look of the bike.

Is the center part of that seat soft or is it all hard plastic?

What'd you use to paint the letters white?

its like a thick hard rubber, that almost looks like the seat cover material, so it matches nicely

Yeah, I did it on my R6 with a grease pen. Takes forever, but it looks cool.

So I filled in my lettering as you did, but it lasted all of two days before it was all brown and ugly. Tried washing it and it didn't help. Lesson learned, there. Never doing that again. Think I'll put white rim tape on instead.

yeah i literally have to redo them ever other ride, such a pain in the ass but i guess Im a gluten for punishment because I did the same thing on my new bike and the letters are like half the size and more of them!! idfrTME.jpg

@r6realtor,
 
What do you have going on with the solo seat tail thingy out back? That looks fantastic!
 
More pics please!

thank you, its just a rear seat cowl that matches the paint and then I add some pin striping to it, I also did some matte black accents on the tank and some more pin striping. i used to hate the look of the fz09 over the fz07 but after doing a few things to improve the look, I think im liking the 09 more now, plus I certainly can't about the power! got rid of that hideous rear tail light and made my own custom turn signals V712W0z.jpg

Yeah, what I didn't like about the FZ-09 is the one piece seat, but it looks like that seat cowl fixes that :)
 
Who makes it?
