On a Dragster RR.

Two things I took off. The mirrors (hit a car mirror when filtering - how WIDE is this beast!?) and the pillion arms/pegs

Now, as you can see in the images, it has left untidy bar-ends and also some poking out screws where the pillion arms were.

Anybody know of caps or blanking plates that sort this out?
Thanks in advance.

Just take the pillion screws off and stow them away. What will you do for mirrors now?

Still leaves a metal plate and a hole though. Not ideal.

Mirrors? Won;t bother. Not got them on my Blade either. I always do a lifesaver which is a good habit to get into anyway.

Evotion What about your insurance policy? I would think mirror/s are important to have. If anything for those jerks texting while approaching from behind. Stop signs and lights are the troubled spots. Had a car next to me hit in the rear by a car traveling 50 mph, didn't brake. It was just 3 feet to my right. That event cemented in my mind never ever forget whats coming from behind and to ALWAYS have a kneejerk escape route ahead. --just saying. CRG Lane Spitters.

Ah, nice tip.

Mirrors are not a requirement in the UK. I doubt they would help you avoid a car coming from behind as you;d never react in time. Indeed, shooting to the side might be worse.
As you say, concentrating on escape routes for approaching vehicles from whereabouts you see is a good idea always.

I removed the pillions on mine as well. Added those plastic clips to the left side, replaced the exhaust hanger all together on the right side. As for the mirrors I replaced mine with Oberon's and added Rizoma end caps to the bars.

Perfect, @NM-1 - Thanks.
I too am getting a new exhaust next week and I can remove the whole left hanger.
I will get the plus and bar-end bits. That will tidy it up.
