My fabrication skills are barnyard, but it can be fun to make bike bits anyway. Some Paint doodles, the first is with the stock dangling fender – plate holder etc erased.

The second pic is an overall view of what I am thinking of.

The third is more detailed, one piece of 1/8 or 3/16 inch aluminum folded. Several ways it can be cut and folded. The black lines are where it is perpendicular to the view, red is flat to the view.

It can be painted any color, I might use red 3M Scotchlite Reflective Tape.

From the photos I can’t figure out what is going on in the area where the stock hanging fender mounts to the under-seat. This pic is cropped and resized from the Laguna thread.

What is that round thing? If it wasn’t facing down it would look like something you’d flip open and pour a liquid into. Hmmm, maybe the FZ-09 is an electric hybrid, and that is where you can plug it in to recharge the batteries. It would explain the smallish gas tank, at 100+ mpg it is plenty. ;)

A quick release for the whole hanging thing? For track days etc? I doubt it, and if true it seems Yamaha would have listed it in the published features.

You are trying to be funny, right. I was wondering what it was myself. THis is not intended to be a track bike from the factory. My best guess is that it is a waterproof cover for a key slot to pop the seat up to get into a small storage tray.

Dang, because of the out of the way location I didn't think of that, on my SV the key slot for that was easy to use on the side of the tail. And I used it a lot. If that what it is on the 09 I guess with a bit of practice you can use it without bending all the way down to look at it, but still a pain in the *** to use often.

Step one: Attach rear fender to solid object, a tree for example

Step two: Accelerate away rapidly :)

Step three: ????

Problem solved, no tools required :)
