Hey guys! i really would like to remove my rear grab handles since i never ride with a passenger. Is there any kind of block off plate or something other than a complete tail section to cover the holes that are left behind? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Could not care less about the holes, but.

removing the grabrails takes half a kg off (a very ugly spot for weight,)
and the biggest bonus is an extra 12mm leg(butt)room because the pillion seat can slide further backwards.

yeah, i removed the grab rails as well as the left pillion footpeg and just realised how this as well as my yoshi exhaust and rear mudflap actually loses quite a bit of unnessecary weight and adds to the looks of the bike :)

i didn't really notice the seat but sliding further backwards but that's a bonus!

for me the handles are convenient and useful for moving
the bike around,, lifting the rear end/wheel up/free etc,,
but my habit is to park against/into the kerb
then pivot her from rear tire contact point
by puling back on left bar with left hand
while controlling the rear end with left handle
and right hand.. this helps 'ground' and steady
the bike in its usual sloped road angled down to kerb..

so for me its not a pillion thing, rather
a handy motorcycle manipulation aide :)
