Is it aluminum, steel, titanium? if it uses the original retention bolt and seal it will work fine.

I mean, if the thing is like $10 with shipping, then it might be worthwhile to look into it, but for $20 you can get the TT plug. It works, looks good, and helps support the site.

I ordered the TT also. I didn't blow out my 03 or 04, but I'm just gonna' keep it in my toolbox for peace of mind.

You could take the approach I did, and have your kid whip a couple of them out in Metal Shop for under $5 worth of aluminum dowel. Actually, it was kind of cool, because it gave me a chance to teach him how do draw up a project like that, and how to tell what's critical, etc.

That's actually the approach that I'd use too. Any excuse to buy a tool... I'll spend $300 on tools to buy $30 in material to fab a $20 part.
My excuse is that I can now make as many as I want (even though I'll only need one or two) :)

Only problem is you need some kind of pattern, and since the '03+ bikes don't have manual decomp, there's nothing on the bike that can be used.
