Passenger on race tail?

Im sure someone can relate but im looking for ideas or a solution for getting a passenger on my race tail fairing. The ex never rode but a new girl wants to. The problem is I don't have the faring to go back and my battery is now in the tail. Has anyone been able to reinforce the tail or make an extra bracket for the F3?

I think we need to see pictures of your tail to see if there's any chance, but doesn't sound like it...
How'd you fit your battery in the tail?!?

We need pics but if you have rear footpegs and your new girl puts most of her weight through them, a fibre glass or carbon tail should support the remaining weight.

That said, I personally wouldn't because if it breaks you are going to have a broken bike and a very pissed (if not seriously injured) girlfriend.

I think we need pictures of the girl in order to properly assess what should be done.

Doesn't sound like a good idea to me.

I'd look into moving the battery somewhere else. I know it sucks to access under the tank, but you can route wiring to the tail. Doesn't seem like a good place to have that weight on the tail.
You can find OEM stuff on eBay...
The back seat has been one of my favorite components on all my bikes. Lots of passengers have agreed.
To be fair, the F3 has a terrible downward angle. Your Passenger will slide forward; smashing you junk against your tank.
But on a short ride through the hills, nothing could be better, and if she didn't enjoy it, saves you wasted time...
(of course, wear full protection above 35mph, and not on a private road)

I think I need to fabricate a bracket to support the weight, but I'm not sure if there is an easy way besides custom
