As above just drop in a couple of bolts or fabricate a couple of plates.
Please under no circumstances buy the official Yamaha billet covers, I have very few regrets with my extras that I have fitted but those two stripes of metal are massively overpriced.

I used a couple of domed headed allen bolts to plug the threads - seemed a neat and very cheap solution.

Hi,

I thought the Yamaha ones were expensive too so went with the ones from Bruudt. They're about the same price as the Evotech blanking plates. Unfortunately I can't post links or images yet :frown2:

Bolts

They were M6 x 20mm socket button bolts, about 15p each. I got them from a camper van supplier, here:

Just curious, don't you guys in the U.K. have what we call "hardware stores" in the States? Generally in a good hardware store you can find all kinds of nuts, bolts, washers, and all kinds of stuff for fixin items at a fraction of the cost of identical OEM. Just take the original with you so you don't have to worry about the right size or pitch.

Good point well made, yes we have shops everywhere selling nuts bolts and everything else you could require.
Next shop to mine marine fabrications could make a blanking plate.
We seem to have lost our way a little I brought the genuine Gilles Yamaha plates to cover footrest mounts.
My son took is peddle cycle to shop for puncture repair!
Must say the Gilles bobbins / chain adjusters were worth the money.

Same here, got four stainless steel socket head button screws (same as what you have, but the "official name") at Fastenal. click here I think they were M8-1.25 x 12mm or 15mm.

Put some anti-seize on them and ran them in. Clean look.
