I had a go at removing the passenger grab bar over the weekend, but it is a bitch to get to!

Took out the bolts on the rear fairing, but alas, the grab bar is holding the fairing on.
10mm screws under the seat are impossible to get to without completely destroying the plastic tool holder thingy & other compartments under there.

Anyone got a visual guide or video, I cannot seem to find any help anywhere!

Thanks in advance guys!

The top bolts are hidden. On top of the grab bar you'll see FOUR grey plastic buttons recessed . Take a tiny tiny flat blade and gently pry up on the buttons. They will pop off. Underneath the buttons are the four large hex bolts.

Anyone else taken these off and put on caps? Is it an issue with the bolts being different lengths?

Are the bolts the same size as the 600?

M8 x 32 and M8 x 75 parts 19 and 20

Also, does anyone know if the spacing is the same as the 600? I am looking to add a rear luggage rack.

Grab rail and bolt part numbers are identical between the 250 and the 98 - 99 Hornet 600 - so a 98/99 rack should bolt straight onto the 250.

That's right; a PC34 rack fits perfect on a 250.
If you have nothing against Givi, you can buy straight part# 162FZ and mount it without any adaptation/modification.
Did it on mine.
