Fz6r rear cowl seat

Yeah, that's the Chinese aftermarket one that was floating around for a while. It seems that a few smaller stores (like that one) still have a couple, and are charging way more than it's worth in hopes that anyone who wants one will pay through the nose for it. lol
I found this one last night: http://www.2040-parts.com/genuine-yamaha-fz6r-rear-passenger-seat-cowl-fairing-blue-09-10-2009-2010-i1143584/
It appears super sketchy also, since the photos don't match each other, and the site itself look shady as all getout. :D

That site says it has been 'sold out' for some time. :) I also found that one, as well as others with the 'genuine Yamaha Part number' which most sites claim is unavailable. There were a couple of sites that actually had images of the top and bottom views, so you can see where the hardware from your rear seat must be removed and mounted to the plastic. Not sure if any are high enough quality to get a accurate dimensional image to produce a 'copy'. :)

Nah, that's totally different than the FZ6R tail. Speaking of price, if I was able to fabricate something, it would likely end up being at least $100 shipped, including whatever hardware I could include that didn't have to be swapped from the bike. I'm only basing that on the amount of time it would take to measure, model, refine, print, etc... Plus, the actual printing material and time isn't trivial.
I looked into the different diversion of the xj6. And seems like that would be the best one. I may order it and do a trial lol

Umm... do you mean the one that's clearly for a totally different bike? Please let us know if you found one that looks like it will fit the FZ6R, but so far we haven't found one that looks likely.

If you make something, I'd be willing to pay around $100.

Yeah, I would love to be able to produce something around $100, but I'm not sure if that's feasible. Honestly, I'm not sure if this is doable at all, since my time is limited, and it's a fairly complex part.

Exactly. That's the same shop I linked to earlier, and it clearly shows that their cowl in no way will fit the 09-17 FZ6R, regardless of what they say.
It looks nothing like our bikes. I'm not sure what bike that is they are showing in the product image, but it sure isn't an XJ6-F.

That image you link to isn't an XJ6-F either, no matter what the page says. It's an FZ6R - it says so right on the fairing.

This is an XJ6-F. Note the one-piece seat.1617403635927.png

Well that's interesting, since the page I linked was directly from Yamaha Global. Maybe they don't know their own products? :)
I see the single-piece seat, but that still doesn't really look quite like the one is the photo from the cowl ad page. The grab rail and tail fair profiles are different, and even the seat texture doesn't look the same. Maybe that's for an older model or something? I'm not real familiar with the "Diversion" series of bikes, I just know that the FZ6Rs are pretty much identical from 09-17, and none of them look like the bike in the photo on the cowl page.
