that space is a result of the removal of your stock blinkers and the plastic associated with them. You could try to fab something up to fill the gaps but other than that there isn't anything I know of. What do you need to put there anyway? Use jeans pockets, jacket pockets and if you really need to bring a lot of stuff a backpack. Otherwise a Goldwing might be the solution.

..........trim the bottom of the plastic filler pieces you took off and then re-install them. you will be cutting off the part to which the signal stems were attached.

ok..try a search but....
take the stock plastic pieces u pulled off. theres a molding line, it follows the contours of the tail.
if you cut it along that line, you can put it back on, and it fills the gap, and isnt visible from outside.

[:+1] Tool kit is it. If you take it out, you can fit a cell and pack of smokes. Just tie them down or they'll come out!

Kind of off-topic, but don't forget to buy frame sliders too!

They might one day pay for themselves. I bought the shogun crash kit, which includes frame sliders, bar end sliders (extend farther than the stock bar ends), and swingarm sliders, all for $96 shipped. Good buy I think.

Ride safe =)

You guys keep your cell phone in that little space there? I'm kinda afraid of doing that because my exhaust is right underneath and it gets extremely hot after a while. I'm afraid of like my cell phone melting or something....

That's just another reason why I like the 2006 Gixxer 6 & 750 better than the 2005-06 636.

[:+1] This is exactly what I did. Works great and cant be seen at all unless you really know what you are looking for. I really don't put anything back there anyhow as there isn't enough room for it to be usable at all except for registration and insurance papers and even then you are pushing it!! [:p]

Falcon, actually I don't put my new phone (razr) in there, but I did my old one. Now that I think about it, I hadn't installed the integrator yet at that time. I keep my phone in my jacket pocket and smokes in the tail with the toolkit strap holding them in. I'm gonna cut my old tail pieces to close up the tail, too much gap for stuff to fall out with the integrator.

its rumored that with a cowl, u have a slight bit more room. maybe for a hat or...
i will be finding out soon enough..as soon as my GB cowl gets here. cant wait!
oh and that molding mark, its almost like it was put there just for this reason. see even kawi thinks the shovel has got to go!

Hokie - I once put my cell phone and watch in the tool bag and then under the cowl. I put them in the bag cause I wasn't wearing my jacket and don't trust my pant pockets. When I got off the bike to get my phone and watch, they were both pretty hot. And that was only after a 30 minute commute to work. I just wonder what would happen if you ride for hours with shit in there. But I agree, normally my phone is in my jacket pocket.

Nevada - A lot of us with cowls have complained about locking problems. Believe it or not, I get LESS space with a cowl than without. The cowl isn't hollow - there's a metal structure inside that you use to hook it up to the bike. So you actually get less space with a cowl than without.

I like the look of the cowl for sure but I don't think I will be getting one any time soon. I use a bag that is strapped to the rear seat for storage. I have gotten so used to it that I can't imagine not having it there. And its easy to remove for riding 2 up.

yep , so ive heard. but do a search. that can be cut out without sacrificing any structural integrity. and VIOLA! space!
but i dont see that there can be much LESS than with the seat.
