 Great post, I just went thru the trial and error process on my own and Arigato helped me to nail it down. This is very good info, considering how many motorcycle riders and parts vendors I asked about the issue. I wonder why none of he plastic mfg's are not moulding them up. Seems to be a demand for them!

Yesterday I had some free time and a new '93 rear fender laying around so I printed Sly's instructions out and started trimming.....30 min. later I was done with the fender and the seat!  Even though this is the 3rd time I've done it, the instructions make up for a lot of trial and error.  The seat mod is the bomb!  Way to think outside the box Sly!

Check out mine, small tank, 2000 year 250 plastics and subframe mods.

The tail pipe is the next for modifications.

Now that is cool, what was involved in getting the 250 plastics on? Take it you had to fabricate new mounting brackets on the frame?

Using the wonderful instructions provided... got mine done this weekend.  I think it looks 10x better IMO.  Dont mind the rest of the bike, it will be back together soon.
