Are you talking about the Single seat unit "blob"...as opposed to the pillion riders seat pad?

They are quite a rare item...But...Paolo Girotti of BCP has had them remade in Carbon fibre....

Do you have the Original Owners Manual with the bike? This seller has one...and is on here also under SB8RS log on name....cheaper to buy from him direct though due to ebay and paypal fees....£50 posted outside of ebay...check his other items also as he has a few YB11 spares

This is maybe your best bet....a german has permanently modded his YB11 into a single seater...but has neatly cut off the back piece...COMPLETE with the part you are looking for...and it comes with the carbon number plate holder and a couple of indicators....would be cheaper than the black lacquered carbon piece that Paolo sells

Or this one

The same seller of the single seat hump etc also has these for sale....footpegs and hangers and helmet lock...not much good without the key though...PLUS though the underseat locking unit that removes the catch pin on either the seat hump or the pillion seat pad

Hello All and thanks for the welcome!

Yes I am just looking for the cowl that replaces the pillion seat pad as you have guessed. The German links look the best bet and also provide me with a few spare parts in I ever need them!

I will post a picture of the bike when I get some decent photos done, the seat has been recovered in what I think is an Alcantara type material and looks great. I just want the cowl fro completeness...

Cheers

The "cut down" unit looks to be the best bet....as it also has the original riders seat pad which is a standard bolt on unit.....and you could always sell a few bits off that unit and probably get your money back...Carbon rear number plate hanger is rare.....indicators and rear light unit not so....Its not often "just" the rear hump comes up for sale....and even the carbon ones Paolo sells dont include the rubber back stop...and probably dont include the metal "spike" underneath it that fixes it to the key operated locking mechanism
