There. I fixed it.

A couple weeks ago, I was doing laps at Autoclub Speedway chasing Eric Bostrom.  On one of the laps I noticed a large piece of debris on the track. As I approached it at full throttle, I noticed that it was the rear cowl on MY BIKE! Yikes!

Somehow, it must have come off with all the windspeed and vibration. Also, probably from me sliding my butt around as I lean into the turns.

The tabs underneath with holes to pass threaded studs have snapped off. I drilled out holes in the cowl and in the seat so that I can Zip-tie them. Classy, I know.

But hey, it worked!  And it is better than the studs.  It’s not going anywhere.

I think I’m going to leave the scratchs in on the cowl.  It adds character. 🙂
