Rear tow hook

Had to come up with a rear hook to tie down. Yamaha didnt make this aftermarket friendly. Not many options in the rear for bumpers.

Where did you get that rear tow hook from? Or did you custom make it?

Guess those who aren't as handy or lacking in tools are out of luck.

Where did you source the parts from? Was it as simple as doing just that or was there some custom work involved?

I just took some measurements and made it out of some scrap steel at work. Replaced the two bolts that hold the skid on the bottom. Made a backing plate and new bolt up top. 3/16 plate with a weld on lift hook.

Thanks, had a feeling there was some custom work involved. How long did it take you to create it?
