04 R6 - Track Fairings - Undertail Fabrication

Hi, I picked up a set of Hotbodies fairings for my 04 R6 track bike. Then I realized that it didn't come with an undertail piece, leaving the tray exposed to dirt, water, stones, etc. It is something that I want covered up since there is holes in the tray exposing circuit boards to the elements.

I called, Hotbodies does not provide an undertail, and they don't sell an undertail, sigh...

I don't have any experience with body fabrication, but am willing to try, was hoping for pointers. What would be a good way to make an undertail so it looks ok. Fiberglass, aluminum, something else?

I have an old oem tail, but for that bike the undertail comes up at the back and is the outer casing for the tail lights. The race tail is a very different shape...

I could hack mine up, but I'm not sure if it would even fit after that...

I had the same question awhile back, and most people seem to fabricate one out of fiberglass. Didn't seem too hard. Then it was held on by dzus fasteners.

How would I make it with fiberglass, make a mold and use loose sheets? Or can you buy stiff boards of pre-hardened fiberglass?

Re: 04 R6 - Track Fairings - Undertail Fabrication

You scope out track fairings from other companies and see if their undertails might fit? I would think that'd work out to be a lot easier than making one from scratch on your own.

I can snap some pics of my undertail (I think it's Optimal) if that'll help.

If you could post a photo that would be great, I am interested in what the curve of the piece is.

I would cut cardboard to the shape you want it.
