  • Cover up holes left by armrests

    I am looking for a cover to cover up the holes left behind when the left side Kuryakyn Passenger Armrest (K8991) was removed. Does anyone know what this would be called and who would have the part? Thanks.

    Lowes or most any hardware store would have Hole Plugs in the bolt bins. Measure your holes and if you don't find the right size get the next size up. Then file or ream the holes out. I did this on a used 93 wing I bought. It worked just fine.

        I couldn't stand the sight of the hole plugs when I removed the Kury arm rests. So I caved and bought a set of new outside pocket covers.

        Home depot/ Lowe's has them. I used a step bit to get the hole to the plug size.

          Thanks all. I may have to go with the plugs. On the left side the holes are into the painted box and not just the black pocket covers.

            I'd like to see a picture of this.
            I can't see how whoever installed these did that?



            I installed mine after changing them out for the show chrome brand. then my wife decided she hated to keep opening them and closing them after she got on the bike. (Gotta love women sometimes for the things they put us through--lol)

              Travelin, these are available at cyclemax here: http://cyclemax.com/inc/sdetail/gl18...ket/117/173883



              Rocky, the two holes are left behind when you remove the armrest assembly: They are the same two holes as if you mounted a CB antenna.

                Here is a pic of the holes the armrest bracket left behind. I am trying to find some rubber material suitable for making a gasket out of to go between the trunk and one of those chrome things Murgie posted.

                  How about putting a dummy antenna back there to match the other side?

                    That is a good suggestion, I just hate to fork out that kind of $$$ for it.

                      maybe someone has an extra lower part from when their antenna broke. Could probably go something that route as well if the plugs don't work out. I'd hate to drill the holes bigger, then decide you don't like the look.

                    Or just find (as suggested) Rubber plugs at Loews or Home depot - Coat the back of the plug with silicone and jam it home

                      I see you don't have a CB antenna there to cover them holes.

                      A cheaper solution is to go to a Badge maker and get a thin sticky back piece of metal to cover both holes. they have different designs and colors to choose from. ( less than $5)

                      like these.

                        Of course, you "could" repair the holes by welding them up (yes plastic welder) and refinishing that piece. A lot of work though as I would suggest taking the trunk apart for the repaint. But then it would look like new.
