Opinions/advice, please:

I wonder if it's okay to drill a smallish hole in the grab rails towards the back end of each.

I want to fabricate a mounting point on each for a webbing strap to harness my Bikers Friend bag on the pillion seat.
It won't have to take much load as these straps will just help locate the bag - most of the load is from me leaning back on it.

Thanks in advance.

Not sure how small "smallish" is, but, Yes. I've actually installed "footman's loops" aka strap brackets on my grab rails so that I could attach a cargo net when needed.

Shouldn't be a problem as long as you don't drill it too close to an edge.

MikeO, I was just thinking: how about a flexible strap with a grommet that you can attach permanently with the fancy glues we have nowadays. Would save the drilling !

Good thought, Jay.

I'll give it some seriously, thank you. Smile
