I've cut a hole in the left side cover since it will make lifting the bike on my Moto Jackrack easier. I also think it doesn't look so good, so since I have access to molding and vacuum forming equipment, I'm in the process of making ABS handles which will fit in the space. I'd have a template to make cutting the panel and getting the part to fit pretty easy for the DIY install. It will be a push in part, and will hide the open fender/recovery hose look. Just curious if anyone else would like such a thing, if not I guess I'll have the only one. The part would go for about $14 and would look like a production piece. I'll post pics when it's done.
