Carbon tail for the 675

I have looked throughout the entire interwebs, and even with my ninja like searching skills I have not been able to find the tail I'm looking for. Does anyone know of a race rear fearing for the 675 that uses a foam seat, and is also carbon fiber?



This is what I want, but all fiber of corse. Thanks for any help guys.

I am going t be making some for myself along with racing aluminum sub-tails when I go home to CA on the 15th. They are not going to be stock styling however, I am modeling them after a GP bike style, w/o under-tail exhaust.

Thanks,

I PMed him about this quite some time ago. The problem is that no one can decide if they want carbon, or fiberglass, with stock seat, or without, and they want it painted custom colors. Because of all the run around it sounds like he has put it on the back burner indefinitely.

Even if it does ever get made, it sounds like it will only be in glass. I absolutely love this tail, and would buy it at twice the asking price for carbon, but I highly doubt it will ever be made.

I'm very interested, please keep me posted. I will have to have an under-tail exhaust as I will not replace my FMF full titanium system though...

Sweet looking Tail Cowl and the price is not so bad considering its quality and not so easy to score
