I am also looking out for one. TCP one looks perfect but $270.00 is coming out at £175.00 before carriage which is a bit steep for me.  :(

I agree, its more than I planned to spend. Its worth looking at www.holeshot.com they have an undertray that looks good and retails for $109 (excluding delivery).  I am still looking as I was hoping to find an easier fix than a replacement undertray.

Mark,

I am a ham fisted idiot and, apart from putting the tip-over switch on up-side-down, I managed to change the undertray easily.

I put the new undertray (2nd hand on eBay) beside the bike and when I took a screw out of the old one put it in the new one so I knew where it went. After I got the old tray out I swapped the screws over and as Haynes says 'fitting is the reversal of removal'.

With a trip for a new number plate (and look at bikes) and a panic because of the tip over switch, I managed it in an afternoon.

Would be cheaper if you can find an undertray on ebay.

Looking at those pictures, I can now see why my old undertray was cut where it was.  I only had from the battery holder to about the seat catch and then a non-yamaha bit of plastic covering the back bit (like the black bit of the second ebay link posted by Devilsyam).

May have to give it a clean up and see what it really is.

My tray is cut from left to right in about the same place as you describe Ghoti. I have filled the void with windscreen glue for now. Fingers crossed I will win the black one on ebay & have to pull it all off!  :rolleyes :)
