Undertail kit for bikes with lowboy exhaust

Has anybody made an undertail kit to fill in the empty area? I like the side exit exhaust so far but i want to cover that empty area up.

So there you go! You're the retarded offspring of five monkeys having butt sex with a fish-squirrel! Congratulations!

There are some people on this site who may remember me vowing to create an entire undertray to fill in the gaping hole revealed by my use of a Zard system. Unfortunately, I have found a lot of excuses not to do it, school, work, lack of money for materials, lack of proper facilites and lastly a shift of focus to making a carbon/aramid monocoque seat/tail. I would like to do both of these, the undertray for the street, the monocoque for the track. Here is a rough first step for the mold.

When I was playing around with my own little open pipe/homemade mini baffle set up I made an undertail out of aluminum. Worked out pretty nicely imo. Im back to my TBR though.

I think that would be superb! Even in it's rough state, it looks the dogs!

That setup looks pretty trick. Probably loud as hell though...

My 954rr had a hot bodies undertail, looked sick, but so damn expensive. I'm going to fiberglass something up for mine over this winter. Might even include turn signals integrated in with it. Shortening the exhaust some more too.

If you can rely on your ability, you don't have to worry about reliability.

Not sure why the cost would be so much. I mean they have the Triumph race tail for $80. An undertail should be even less material.

Lets see what I get back. I did like the aluminum idea in the thread.

UPDATE: Reply back - Currently we have our R&D department tied up with a long list of projects, unfortunately we have nothing planned for the Daytona’s sorry
