Re: WIP Passenger Peg plugs for 08-11 R6

This is just based off the undertail shot in picture two. To me the right seems to fill in the gap completely.

Maybe create more of lip on the plug to attach inside the fairing. That may help with the application issue by having more contact to the inside of the fairing to press down.

If that makes sense. Just throwing out some ideas for you.

You're totally right I got confused for a moment there. The right plug was the 2nd one I worked on, the left side was the first so I learned from my mistakes by the time I moved to the other side.

The left side keeps poping out of place so odds are I will have to start from scratch.

I'll have to cough up another 100 bucks then I can finish the project and make copy's sell on ebay make some cash back.

Re: WIP Passenger Peg plugs for 08-11 R6

Maybe a bracket that will fit over the passenger peg plugs once fitted into their slots? You can put that across then velcro or double sided tape it down. Hopefully you understand what I'm trying to explain because if it comes to me drawing a picture it's going to cost some $$$

Well you're definitely on the right track man. They look really good. There will probably be a high demand for them. Good luck, can't wait to see the progress.

LMFAO I must be crazy because I think your art should be in galleries

I see what your saying but the thing is I'd have to start from scratch again to get it to work. Because as is the Velcro would take up space.

But for the hell of it I could try anyway not like I can ride the thing right now.

Re: WIP Passenger Peg plugs for 08-11 R6

Holy crap I forgot about this thread. I got rapped up in so may other things I forgot to update progress.

I made a set for myself and stopped there due to extreme bouts of lazyness.

They look decent, but not Sheer Perfection, would anyone notice it's not a super uber fit nope. I could make more, but I'd have to invest another 100 dollars into the project to fine tune and make copies. As of late I've been more on building a track bike. If I had mold making stuff laying around I'd make you a set for free.

Re: WIP Passenger Peg plugs for 08-11 R6

I actually have a friend of mine that owns his own body shop going to make the plugs for me. He said he can either make them bolt up or snap in which ever one would be easier for me to deal with. I figured might as well do the bolt in method since I'll already have the seat off to put the rear seat back on if my gf wants to ride with me.
