I've seen pics of 650's with aftermarket rearsets, and there are a couple large openings in the side of the frame that are exposed after install. I've seen a few bikes that have these capped off so the bolts are covered. Does anyone know where to pick something like this up? I'll try to find pics of it in a sec and post them up.

Ok, here's how it normally looks after rearset install.




And here's a bike that has the openings capped off...

I have frame plugs on my Monster. You might want to take a micrometer and measure the inside diameter, then look on some Duc parts sites for the right size. No promise that they cross over, but the tube size for Duc frames varies quite a bit from model to model, sometimes even on the same model from year to year, so there is a good chance of a fit.

Sweet, thanks for the info!:alcy: Do you happen to have any pics? Oh and the measurements by chance?
No need to get fancy. The plugs that you already have on your bike will plug those holes, so all you need to do is buy some used ones on eBay. :headbang:

If you don't believe me you can take off the upper plugs and see if they fit...

Upper plugs? Not looking for fancy, just want to cover up the frame gaps that are shown when switching to aftermarket rearsets. But if they already come off this bike then they should already be color matched to make it an easy fix.

Kawasaki really did not want those welds to be shown. Someone should make a cover that hides those welds as well as the holes.

"upper plugs"=the plugs that are already plugging your frame.

For example, the round piece of plastic covering the upper bolt for the shock.

Directions: locate your shock. Follow it up to where it connects to your frame. Locate the round plastic piece attached to your frame that is covering the shock bolt. Pop it off using a flathead screwdriver. Insert it into one of the lower holes and you will see it fits.

I don't know how to be anymore specific than that. If still not clear, I guess I could make a video for you...
