So as most of you know my Targa cowl snapped off while riding and it was smashed. The site I bought it from reached out to Targa and they said they would replace it. Well, I get an email today that says that they don't have it in black and don't know how soon they will have a new one.

However, the site will replace it with the Yamaha Factory one (for 2008).

I'm stuck because I really loved the slick look of the Targa, but I want to see more photos of bikes with the Yamaha Factory Cowl.

Can any of you with 2007 and up post your cowls so I can see. Preferably the Yamaha Factory Cowl's?

Thanks!!!

Yeah I know right.....damn.....tough call. I hate waiting for stuff. I'm waiting to find out how long it's gonna take. Not sure if I really feel the Yamaha version. Need to see some pics to verify.

Don't have a Yamaha seat cowl but have an 07 so figured I would at least get this thread going with a pic.

Dude, youre stoked youre getting a factory one...the fit and finish is much better than the targa...


And IMO the factory one (with the little pad) looks better...

Yeah i was thinking the fit and color match would be perfect, obviously since it is factory. I have never seen this one in person though so i was worried about how huge that pad is and if it looks good.

I think i may just get it.....if i don't like it sell it and order a targa and have money left over because its about $50 more.

DON'T do it Walt!! Just be patient! Ok, if you must, get the one without the pad, just looks much more sleeker!

Hahaha they were saying 3 weeks. F that man. I just got the factory one and honestly man....if it's wack I'll sell it and in 3 weeks when the targa is valuable I'll buy it then.

I can't rock this rear passenger seat man lol.

I want a seat cowl for my 08, without the pad. I don't want a Targa one, because people have said they fit like shit.

Does Yamaha even make one without the pad for an 08?

Yeah, I found it. SH!T!!!!! That sucks so bad. I've got peg plugs on hold right now and my integrated tail and fen. elim. on the way. I just need a GOOD cowl to clean everything up...

What kind of plugs did you get and for how much? I've been thinking about taking off the pegs, but I almost want them there in case I do have to throw the rear seat on and take someone. So I may get them powder coated black.
