what do you mean? you can get seat cowls. the kawi oem seat cowl looks pretty slick, or a catalyst tail.

this page has pics of both the targa and the kawi one

here is the catalyst tail (toward middle of page)

buy me the oem cowl in passion red

The OEM seats are very nice on long trips. Very comfortable. Glad that you're considering coming to the 650 Army man. We need more in the ranks.

So the cowl seat cover can be removed for two up riders? The bike looks great Dave with it and now I'm considering it.

Go to the ninja650 forum, they have some people who have put r6 tails on the rear, also the cheetah rear seat. Problem is it gets a little pricey... but if that's what you want, then go for it.... I was leaning towards the ninja, until I kept thinking, dropping = over thousand bucks since the fairings are really expensive and a rip off, if I want to enjoy riding it, I don't want to worry about fairings, so I decided on the sv650, since overall it is rated as a better performance bike. It has more availability for parts and aftermarket parts anyway, so I'd recommend you look into those. A few mods on the sv can make it sweet. Take a look at the svriders dot com website. They have some SLICK bikes.
