Anyone running a superbike tailsection?

Hi Guys, I just bought a Attack Supebike tail and there s no battery tray to help support your weight. I Emailed Attack and they state that you do not need one. The fiberglass seems petty flimsy to put 200# of my fat ass onto so I am wondering if anyone else has had a issue like this.

Any info would be much appreciated

Justin

I've got one on mine and you will ABSOLUTELY need to add more glass to the seat area it will crack. Also had to mod the tabs on the sub frame because over time the added stress cracked them

VAE VICTUS!

I will look at adding a battery tray to sit on. I got the tail section mounted today, and beefed up the support brackets. It seems pretty solid, but I too figure that over time this will end up cracking.

Now, anyone know where I can buy the battery tray? My last bike that had the superbike tail was a 03 GSXR 600. The armour bodies tail I had on it came with one.
