Greetings! I'm looking for something my wife or daughter can hold on to besides me - sometimes I think they would like something mounted to hold on to - I know other types of motos have them. Was wondering if our 750 can - I've included a pic of what I'm looking for - Thanks!

Unless the bike has throw-over saddlebags, why can't they use the stock grab rails? Just asking, I haven't checked it out. Maybe the tire is too close?

I didn't notice it had stock grab rails? Mine currently has saddle bags, but I can look again? Here is a pic of mine - maybe its missing - it was like that when I bought it - Any idea where I might grab some? If anyone knows the part name -

Right there by the top shock bolt. I've only seen them called grab rails or passenger grab rails. The one on the left side is handy for putting the centerstand up, but they're on both sides. Looks like the tire shouldn't be a problem.

Did see one seller call them fender struts.

The stock "grab rails" are not that comfortable for a passenger to hold on to, hence my addition of something more substantial.
But then, my passenger really didn't use them, they always held on to me. ;)
Not all of us have such magnetic personalities.:laugh:

I made some out of 1X1/4" aluminum stock. Simple AF. Covered them with leather, but you could use some bicycle grips.

You just need some spacers and longer bolts.
Could I commission you to make a set for my moto? If so, please PM me a paypal email for instant payment for your time and materials. I really do think this would be a great add on and peace of mind for them riding with me.

Your other quote -->The stock "grab rails" are not that comfortable for a passenger to hold on to, hence my addition of something more substantial.

Yeah. I'm a network engineer by trade. I have the personality of a hippopotamus defending her watering hole. I know my significant others would appreciate those you made more than the alternative!!
