on my old sv, i cut off the actual handle part, just leaving the bottom plate with the bolt holes and the notch that the seat slides into. then sanded down the edges and painted it.

on my new sv, i took off the whole grab handle and just wrapped some thick wire between the two mounting bolts, leaving just enough slack for the seat nub-thing to slide into.

both solutions leave a small gap where the grab bar was, but i still think it looks better than the bar itself.

I 3D printed one, let me know if you want the files.


Any chance you still have this file? I bought a blue 2008 SV650 two weeks ago without the grab bar. On a trip today with a passenger I noticed the seat wiggles around without something to hold it there! I think under weight its sort of stable but I just don't like the idea of it sliding around/potentially breaking one of the metal posts.
