I've cut a hole in the left side cover since it will make lifting the bike on my Moto Jackrack easier. I also think it doesn't look so good, so since I have access to molding and vacuum forming equipment, I'm in the process of making ABS handles which will fit in the space. I'd have a template to make cutting the panel and getting the part to fit pretty easy for the DIY install. It will be a push in part, and will hide the open fender/recovery hose look. Just curious if anyone else would like such a thing, if not I guess I'll have the only one. The part would go for about $14 and would look like a production piece. I'll post pics when it's done.
I saw a guy who had used a strip of that serpentine belt from a car, cut it for a handle and bolted each end to his rear seat bolts, it was a loop at the end of the seat, it actually looked pretty sanitary. The ribbed side of the belt was down and of course, it was durable. Great for dragging it out of a mud hole also.
