I have a 2011 650 Executive with a Yelvington Trike Kit. Does anyone make a reasonably priced rear cover for the kit? The one that Yelvington offers isn't very attractive and not looking to spend $1,499.00 for their fiberglass parts.

If you spent the money for the trike, you would be best to pony the rest up if thats what you want. If you spend $600 for a half baked job, you will be back to square one and out that money.

Seatec, one of our members from Canada does some fiberglass work. He does some really professional work.

Possible (probable) typo.

When I bought mine it was $149.xx. And that was way too expensive.

Having said that, unless you are going to buy the body kit, you should consider their cover just for appearance sake.

Is it $1,499.00 or $149.00? Your pricing is off somewhere.

Not crazy about the look of their cover, cost now is $169.00. I agree, a lot of money for what it is.
Hopefully, it now comes ready to install with mounting hardware and instructions. I used industrial strength Velcro (tm) to mount mine. Also, it would be nice if it came pre-cut to fit around the shock mounting or even with a template to use when cutting it to fit.

Regards,

Are you referring to the fender that the licence plate bolts on to.
Mine were fiberglass with all the fittings that I sold with the kits.
The first few we're made from a plastic truck mud flap that I cut to shape to fit then used plastic rivets to fasten it to the bike with aluminum angle, bolted to the bike.

No Wayne,

I can't imagine you ever selling anything that was less than well thought out, and not thoroughly tested by yourself. Having been around the community for a while, I feel confident that anything I would have bought from you would have been money well spent.

I'm referring to the cover that Yelvington sells to hide the center section of the trike conversion kit. It appears to be an injection molded piece of plastic that should be part of the basic kit, or an option, for, at most, $39.95.

Regards,

Dan

P.S. (how old am I?) Is Yelvington trikes aware of this website? If not, why not? If so, why are they not responding?

BurgmanTriker, did you go to there web site ? Still in business last time I checked. Our local installer never mentioned to me anything about them going out of business. I'm sure he would have told me if they had.
